    Heaven help me, I gave Sandford another high rating, despite the fact this story is jam-packed with nasty language. But the story is probably related in a particularly realistic fashion showing the way cops/robbers actually talk. So I cut Sandford a lot of slack. A few odd twists with regard to Davenport's team (Connell) that added a special flavor. This was actually quite a scary story so you want the bad guys to get their just desserts anyway.

    Night Prey is the 6th in John Sanford's Prey series. Lucas Davenport is on the trail of a serial killer whose body count continues to rise. He's teamed with feminist Megan Connell of the State Bureau of Criminal Apprenhension. Connell is obsessed with catching the killer before she dies of cancer. Another page turner in a thrilling series that ends the only way it could.

    I did not like this book as much as some of his others. Was hard to pay attention at the beginning but picked up later.

    Again, John Sandford knocks it out of the park. Raw, gritty and Richard Farone makes it even more believable! Another page turner! Well done

    Good read, a bit too much vulgarity. Surprisingly good end.

    This one is sixth in the series, written by John Camp under the Sandford pseudonym. I prefer the earlier Lucas Davenports to the later ones. Sandford’s other series, I like even better, especially Virgil Flowers, which has a special brand of humor. The Kidd series suffers from being quite dated technically, when read today, but were excellent when I read them several years (decades?) ago.It’s a good story, although I found Conley’s terminal disease to be implausible in the context of her actions in the story, not to mention Lucas’s little oration on the degrees of rape. That was weird.

    No the great John Davenport Brook to Spence to the Verriand extra characters well written
  • (3/5)
    The sixth Lucas Davenport novel and the first that wasn’t a complete success. The core story was of the quality I have come to expect but there was an offshoot to the investigation that was pure filler. I can forgive it because of Sandford’s other strengths. Davenport is forced to partner with a female investigator who is terminally ill. How she deals with her problem and how Davenport relates to her throughout the process--while conducting an extremely public investigation--is the essence of the story. It reduces the extraneous stuff to a minor distraction.

    This review is for the abridged audio cassette version of the book.

    From the Goodreads book description, I'm happy to report that the abridged version barely touches on the political motivation (or pretty much anything else) of the chief of police. Nor does it go into any detail regarding the "near-fatal wounds of a year ago".

    The abridged book just gets down to business. There's no doubt as to the identity of the killer, so the book is more about his 'inner workings', along with Davenport's good ol' detective work and deductive reason that's always welcome in a thriller like this.

    A vicious killer is targeting shy, unsure women who frequent bookstores and art museums. Lucas Davenport is back, but getting all his connections reestablished is taking longer than he thought it would. And his boss has a problem that's about to be passed along: Minneapolis is starting to swim in murders, and the populace doesn't like feeling unsafe. She wants Lucas to make her problem go away. Good thing he likes a challenge.Sandford blends suspense and humor and creates memorable characters. Another winner.

    streetwise Minneapolis deputy police chief Lucas Davenport is beleaguered by perplexing females. Charged with saving the political life of Rose Marie Roux, the ambitious police chief who has her eye on a Senate seat, he's given the assignment of tracking to ground the sex-crazed perpetrator of a series of murders of young women. Davenport's unwelcome colleague in this case is feminist Meagan Connell, an abrasive State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator who's obsessed with catching the killer before she dies of cancer. Also bedeviled by the ill-timed assignment of a new partner, a yuppie who was formerly assigned to the grade schools as "Officer Friendly" and who happens to be the husband of the mayor's niece, Davenport is additionally saddled with the mystifying death of an elderly woman who died rather conveniently, freeing some local hoods to profit from a real-estate scam. Juxtaposing the dark consciousness of the sex-fixated murderer against the narrative perspective of Davenport, Sandford builds a compelling counter-rhythm of suspense. The narrative is sensitively embued with Davenport's humaneness as, in awe, he watches Connell courageously fight to postpone her impending death. Yet, credibly flawed, the cop also displays a roving eye when he's momentarily distracted from his deep commitment to the lovely physician Weather Karkinnen by a beautiful and seductive TV anchor.

    Another long one, this time lengthwise as well. Someone mentioned to me that they didn't like this series because of the language and I wondered why. I had not noticed before, maybe not as sensitive to it as others, but this one did have a bit more of a rough edge to it. But I think it went with Davenport's mood. He seemed to have a lot of trouble transitioning himself in all these directions and it manifested himself in his temper. I am already tired of Weather's character, too wimpy. I think Connell would have made an excellent partner for Davenport. Oh well, this one was a bit gory, a bit slow, but again, no idea who Koop is until the fast paced end.

    This is the 6th book in the Prey Novels. Lucas is back in Minneapolis in his new appointed role as the new official quicker picker upper, and Weather has followed him down from Wisconsin. Roux Marie has made Lucus her fix-it man. When things start heating up for to politicos he steps up and solves the problem. When the murder rate is going for an all time high and several appear as a possible serial murderer, who guts female victims, Lucas is sent to stop it.Overall another excellent crime thriller and scores about par for the Davenport series. Fast paced and keeps you reading from the first page to the last. Recommended.
