Rate this:
A slumlord and a welfare supervisor butchered in Minneapolis . . . a rising political star executed in Manhattan . . . an influential judge taken out in Oklahoma City . . . all with the same grisly modus operandi: the victims' throats were slashed with an Indian ceremonial knife. John Sanford's new Lucas Davenport novel is even more mesmerizing than his debut in Rules of Prey. A big, scary, suspenseful read.--Stephen King.

I like police mysteries. I don't like tawdry "romance" novels. Shadow Prey seemed to be primarily a cheap sex potboiler rather than a legitimate mystery.

The first and only book I will read by this author.

Recommend instead Michael Connelly, Henning Mankell, Harlan Coben, etc.

I read a lot of detective novels. But this is the first one where I did more than just dislike the detective. I *despised* Lucas Davenport, a rich good looking playboy, constantly wired with Viagra, who seduces his New York partner and ruins her marriage while turning his back on his girlfriend, the mother of his baby. Excellent action in the story is undercut by the constant vibrations of Davenport's uncontrollable adolescent sexual urges. I don't mind a little steam in stories, but I'm no fan of swamp mud.

Lucas Davenport #2 finds Davenport investigating a series of crimes all committed with a Native American ceremonial knife. Although the crimes are spread across the country, all signs point back to the Minnesota Native American community and a killer who calls himself Shadow Love.

Didn't like it much. I have yet to figure out why Sandford is such a popular writer
