In life she was a high-profile model. In death she is the focus of a media firestorm that’s demanding action from Lucas Davenport. One of his own men is a suspect in her murder. But when a series of bizarre, seemingly unrelated slayings rock the city, Davenport suspects a connection that runs deeper than anyone had imagined—one that leads to an ingenious killer more ruthless than anyone had feared....
Somehow this is not up to Sanford's standards. I can't explain exactly why, but in the first place, I am turned off by the Hollywood/Model scene. Secondly, Lucas doesn't seem to be as "real" in this book as in the others...his thoughts are not as clear. Thirdly there are too many characters involved including police personnel... I'all finish it; I'm more than halfway through, but it's not worth the $20.00 I spent for the Audible. Thank goodness Richard Ferone is still on his mark!
I like the book, this author is a favorite of mine. My problem is that there are typos sometimes on every page. Not author errors but the same typo over and over. Its a Kindle problem. The typo is always an a with an upside down mark over it. Then a Euro sign and then '''. Sentences are not completed. I've had to get a book at my library to find out what words were omitted. Its a Kindle problem, technology I guess. When I called in the person I talked to had a horrible accent, which I could not understand. So much for the new Kindle, latest and greatest. If my next book has similar problems, I will have to return the device.
I am a great fan of John Sanford. I started with his Virgil Flowers books and am now working my way through the Lucas Davenport series. That said, I have to admit that I was disappointed with "Easy Prey." While most of his books are fast paced and gripping, I found this one to be rather slow and plodding. I can usually read one of Sanford's books in less than two or three days, it took me about ten days to get through this one. It just didn't grab my interest, and I had to keep pushing myself to get back to it. I might have just quit reading it altogether, but it reallly annoys me not to finish a book.
I was disappointed in several things about this book. First the very large number of characters we have to keep track of. Second there seems to be a lack of a plot. Oh yes, there is a murder. Actually there are two murders. Then a little later as we investigate those two there are some more murders. They appear to be covering up clues to the first murders. Marci, the pretty blonde police woman gets shot. Guess who shows up as one of her doctors? Lucas' ex-girl friend. So Lucas gets a chance to get back together with her. But its complicated. One complication is the nutty but beautiful Jael, the sister of one of the murder victims. Another is Catrin, a love from Lucas' college days who happens to drop by as she decides to leave her husband of 25 years. She is still a pretty good-looking blonde.

The major problem Lucas has with Weather is mentioned but not in much detail. I will have to go back and read the book where they started out ready to get married and ended up with Weather having a strong psychological aversion to Lucas causing them to split for an indefinite time.

There's a lot of chasing, suspecting, a little sex and nobody gets much sleep.
Another great Lucas Davenport read from John Sandford! A famous model is murdered during a party in a suburban home, but the case gets worse by the minute. There were drugs bought and sold at the party and an undercover cop was there to witness it. While searching the house, the cops find another body in a closet. As the story progresses with weirdos and dysfunctional family members coming forward, Lucas starts to get involved with not one, not two but three women. Entertaining from start to finish.
Firstly, I must nail my colors to the mast...
I am a HUGE fan of Sandford's writing.
I think there are three great 'cop type' thriller writers out there, and Sandford is one of them (FYI, the other two are Robert Crais and Nelson DeMille).
Sandford, cleverly weaves the plot line in this book, leaving the reader with several ideas as to who the bad person is... the ending is as surprising as it is funny.
Excellent book.....
And, if I may offer a little advice................ buy Rules of Prey (the first Davenport book), enjoy it, and then read every single one of them - in order....
You will not regret it.
John Sandford writes like no other. I'm working my way through the "Prey Series" they all have been enjoyable reads. Lucas & his team, including the "Virgil Flowers" books, are the best.
I found the story fairly good, though like many of Sanford's "Prey" books, much of the themes are similar. His Davenport character is predictable among women and his nature of investigation leaves one wanting for something different. This book, "Easy Prey" was a bit of a drag in the middle. Towards the end I must have missed the connection of the evidence with the killer. It sort of jumped around until it resolved, but not before the reader is distracted many times with Davenport's personal crisis with the women in his life. I've read better books from Sanford...
