The “Prey” novels by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Sandford consistently make the best seller lists, but they are not for the faint of heart. Featuring Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, these thrillers are raw, graphic, and impossible to put down. In Eyes of Prey, a depressed and unfocused Davenport takes on a macabre case, tracking down a serial killer who maims the eyes of his victims after he has murdered them.

I personally don't like so much blood and gore, so would not choose another Sandford book.
Yes, the story line was exciting, just not the details!
I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.
I am a rather avid listener of detective mysteries and have always been a fan of John Sandford. This one has it all, interesting plot, great characters, action packed, weird nemisis. I highly recommend it.
loved the suspense. Bekker was amazingly crazy. The innerstory of the NYC was also very good. loved lily.
the narrator fits the character needed to read this book as Davenport
gave life to Davenport
The story is ingenious and compellingly written and read. The climax was well worth the wait, and was itself astonishing and gave new insight and depth to Davenport's character.
This is my second time through the Lucas Davenport series. The evolution of Lucas is fascinating. I don't like his behavior in this story, but I am interested and invested in Lucas enough to empathize with his current struggles. I am rooting for him.
Mr. Sandford's villains are excellent, no evolution here, they are fully developed in every book, and they embrace their evilness as normal - terrifying.
Mr Stanford has the excellent ability to tell a different story each time and with the comfort of the same hero you are lulled into a sense of safety, because after all you know Lucas, what could go wrong? HA! Hold on, this is going to be a good one!
I was on the edge of my seat during this book. Becker is the nuttiest bad guy ever. Not my favorite story but that's about subject matter, not about the quality of the story.
Oh my gosh. I love Everything I can wait to listen to Silent Prey. I'm getting ready to order it now
