Invisible Prey | [John Sandford]

Invisible Prey

In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random; if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to...certainly nothing he ever expected.

Publisher's Summary

In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random; if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to...certainly nothing he ever expected. Which is too bad, because the killers, and, yes, there is more than one of them, the killers are expecting him.

Brilliantly suspenseful, filled with rich characterization and exciting drama, Invisible Prey is further proof that Sandford is in a class of his own.

    "Another great read"

    As always another great prey book. I was afraid I was not going to see another new Lucas Davenport thriller. Great plot, believeable and yet tricky.

    "Great Summer Read"

    I really enjoyed this current addition to the "Prey" series. The focus was really on the crimes and included several twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. The overall production was slick and the flow was great. I recommend this as a great summer beach read or for a long road trip. I found myself not wanting to turn the story off.

    "Invisible Prey"

    Very well thought out plot line as are all of the "Prey" series. Very colorful characters, especially the bad guys in this one! The narrator does an outstanding job, with many various accents (no problem distinguishing between characters. Great surprise ending. I have enjoyed all of the Lucas Davenport books and this is one of the best.

    "One of the best Davenport books"

    This is one of the best Lucas Davenport tales. I just hate it when the last line is spoken because now I have to wait for another book. Great book with a lot of complexities as usual.

    "Fun but not enthralling"

    I have read every Lucas Davenport book as soon as it was published and this was my first "listen" in the series. I have to say that the narrator did not capture my interest. He portrays Lucas a bit differently than I have imagined him over the years and I can't hold him accountable for that. I just found it difficult to distinguish between the characters. An earlier review says just the opposite so I guess this is a draw. Decide for yourself.

    Regarding the story, you know who the killers are early on. The story focuses upon Lucas and other characters as they unravel the mystery little by little, with some twists and surprises along the way. It's intelligently done and the quilting backdrop is interesting. But I found myself wishing for the more enthralling, heart-pumping hunt for the seriel murderer plots of the earlier Davenport series. This is still a great book and worth the read. After all, you just have to keep up with Lucas Davenport. I just couldn't give it higher than a four. As an earlier reviewer says, it's a good beach book and will certainly entertain you.

    "The Sandford Touch"

    This novel really follows up on what we expect from John Sandford. The twists and turns of this one does not disappoint. It really gets into the mind of the criminal and the cop as the desperate criminals try to figure the next move to cover their crimes, and the cop struggles with just enough information to keep him going, and questioning why this is happening. Great listen!

    "Lighter but still fun"

    I am a huge "prey" fan and found this one to be less dark and psychological than the others. Still, its Lucas Davenport and company and still a fun listen. Expect it to be lighter than the previous thrillers. There is a small quilting angle for those quilters out there!

    "Lucas Davenport ......."

    This one was a little thin....but very good. There are points where the killers are obvious....but the story is drawn out....assuming that we can't figure it out. Big and little....come on John. I did like the effort though.....however I think Flowers will replace Davenport.....hmmmmmm.

    "Great Listen"

    John Sandford is one of my favorite authors. He could write the user manual to my microwave and I would still be enthralled by him. Love the series and I have a huge crush on Lucas Davenport! Can't wait for more.
