In the 10th installment of his popular Prey series, John Sandford (a.k.a. John Camp) pits his popular antihero, Lucas Davenport, against a pair of cunning killers unlike any he has encountered before.

Attorney Carmel Loan is preternaturally beautiful, intelligent, and ambitious. When she becomes infatuated with fellow barrister Hale Allen, she isn't going to let a little thing like his being married get in her way. A quick meeting with an ex-client sets up the hit on Hale's wife, Barbara. The professional killer, Clara Rinker, is one of the best in the business. Smart, attractive, with a gentle Southern drawl, no one would suspect her of being a top Mafia hit man... er, hit person. When she takes the Allen assignment, she figures it will be easy money for a day's work. But things go wrong from the beginning. Loan's ex-client made a tape of the meeting, and is shaking her down for money. Worse, the shooting of a witness--a cop--brings deputy inspector Lucas Davenport into the case. Somehow Davenport has not only linked Loan to the killing, but seems to have a lead on Rinker as well. Carmel and Clara team up to clean up the loose ends, which includes getting Davenport off their back by whatever means necessary.

Carmel Loan gets whatever she wants and she wants Hale Allen. A pesky little detail is that he is already married to a wealthy socialite. Carmel is an intelligent, beautiful and driven lawyer. Carmel contacts a former client and arranges for a 'hit'.

Clara Rinker is a petite and attractive Southern bar owner who happens to be the mafia's best professional killer. She comes to do her job and it should be a walk in the park but an innocent policeman comes to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets shot also.

Enter Lucas Davenport. He not only makes the connection between Carmel and the 'hit' but also starts to find out about the hit man. When Carmel and Clara join forces to eliminate some witnesses the killing spree escalates and soon even Lucas is in their sights.

The Prey books are not really a who-done-it but a how will justice be served series of books. They are excellent but this time I felt the connection between Carmel and the murders was intuition at best and not based on investigation or testimony. A bit too far from just plain good police work for me.

My mom, AceofHearts, passed away from breast cancer on September 17, 2013. Aside from being one of the best people I know, she was an avid reader and took immense pleasure in Bookcrossing, her book club, and reading many great books. She had read quite a few in the Prey series and enjoyed them, and she listed as available to pass along to someone else.

I will be releasing this in my mom's memory.
