Eyes of Prey is the third book in the Prey Series novels written by popular crime-fiction author John Sandford.
Eyes of Prey Book Review
This Prey novel follows the super-sleuth Lucas Davenport unravel the new set of mysterious murders in town. Destroying the victims’ eyes seems to be the killer’s gory signature.
The psychopath killer already earned the nickname ‘Doctor Death’ in the past and he hires a malleable-minded criminal to murder his wife.
How the wife gets killed and the connection between the killer and the husband forms a critical part of the story. No spoilers here though 😉
Though there seems to be nothing connecting him to the crime, the killer eventually lands in Lucas Davenport’s net as usual.
Department politics and Lucas Davenport
The politics within the department pose ugly problems to Davenport adding to his problems with depression. In this Prey novel, Lucas Davenport is still single and looking for relationships. His relationship with Jennifer is over, and Lucas is shown having other romantic interests.
The emotions of a person faced with life-changing situations are portrayed brilliantly by the author. How the killer picks his victims, his methodical executions all are sure to give you the chills. Fascinating medical facts, Lucas Davenport’s real expression and ferociousness when he finally gets his criminal also kept me hooked.
This book is a gripping thriller and must not be missed by crime-fiction lovers. The sequel to this book, Silent Prey, also does not fail to grip the reader by the throat.
Eyes of Prey is a intense intriguing crime novel that must be on your list right now.
