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

"As always for Sandford, entertaining and intelligent reading." (Booklist)
"Interesting and unusual supporting characters, good and bad guys alike, enhance an intriguing puzzle." (Publishers Weekly)
Lucas Davenport, though he has acquired numerous personal disabilities throughout the series, still manages to satisfy in the end. The characters are complex, and there is only one small inconsistency in the book that makes it less credible, involving the way a particular murder is carried out.
Still Sandford still has an ear for dialog and his pacing is as good as ever. The bad guys are bad, the good guys are good, and justice, of course, triumphs in the end.
I recommend the book.
I listened to "Rules of Prey" and loved it - one of the best thrillers I have heard this year. I bought this one and was somewhat disappointed, it was OK but not close to being as good as Rules. One of the unfortunate things about this one is that it occurs near the end of the series, Rules of Prey is the first in the series, so the main character has changed a great deal. Wish they would record more of the series.
