I am attempting to read all the Sandford "Prey" books in chronological order, this one was ok, kept my interest throughout the story, although I still think the author is a bit strange in the manner that he unfolds the plot. This one could have had a much more dramatic ending, but he wraps up both major plot lines in the last dramatic scene of the story.
I don't recall a Sandford book I didn't enjoy. This one is no exception. 7 of 10 for me.
I love the Prey Series, so I was supprised to find that I disliked this book. I had to force myself to finish it. Davenport shows little of his brainiac puzzle-solving thought processes that make us want to-be-him in this one. He is juggling two cases – the re-appearing pill-popping, eyelid-severing, murderous former pathologist, Michael Bekker, and the rogue cop vigilante group “The Robin Hoods”. He solves them both without much flare. The only flash of interest the tale held for me was the mystery of what the landlord said about the elevator that solved the case in his own mind for him... Davenport monologues: I wonder if Lily didn’t hear what she said, or just hoped I didn’t hear what she said…” I puzzled deliciously over that for days, refusing to let myself turn the pages back and peek. Was it that the bell dinged while the perp was still upstairs? Does that mean that there was a second man already in the building? Why did he pause on the landing? Was he old and tired? Keeping me puzzling over that for days was the only part of the book I enjoyed. Is this series becoming old and tired or did Sandford just miss the mark here?
