From Publishers Weekly
The pseudonymous Sandford (he's Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp) keeps turning out better and better thrillers. In this sixth entry in his Prey series, streetwise Minneapolis deputy police chief Lucas Davenport is beleaguered by perplexing females. Charged with saving the political life of Rose Marie Roux, the ambitious police chief who has her eye on a Senate seat, he's given the assignment of tracking to ground the sex-crazed perpetrator of a series of murders of young women. Davenport's unwelcome colleague in this case is feminist Meagan Connell, an abrasive State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator who's obsessed with catching the killer before she dies of cancer. Also bedeviled by the ill-timed assignment of a new partner, a yuppie who was formerly assigned to the grade schools as "Officer Friendly" and who happens to be the husband of the mayor's niece, Davenport is additionally saddled with the mystifying death of an elderly woman who died rather conveniently, freeing some local hoods to profit from a real-estate scam. Juxtaposing the dark consciousness of the sex-fixated murderer against the narrative perspective of Davenport, Sandford builds a compelling counter-rhythm of suspense. The narrative is sensitively embued with Davenport's humaneness as, in awe, he watches Connell courageously fight to postpone her impending death. Yet, credibly flawed, the cop also displays a roving eye when he's momentarily distracted from his deep commitment to the lovely physician Weather Karkinnen by a beautiful and seductive TV anchor.
----------------------------
This was the first 'Prey' book I have listened/read and I thought it was really good. There was lots of suspense and I could understand the intensity of why Meagan Connell wanted/needed to get the bad guy.

Received today with much thanks! I'll give it to my grandfather this weekend when I see him. He's listened to Naked Prey before and he enjoyed it so I'm sure he'll like this one as well!
Very pretty label by the way Danes! :)

Thanks again!

This is the second book the Prey series that my grandfather has listened to (as I mentioned before).
He liked this one, but not as much Naked Prey.

I think my mom wants to listen to this one before we send it along.

Journal Entry 10 by SalDragski from San Antonio, Texas USA on Saturday, May 19, 2007
Abridged on two cassettes. Read by Jay O. Sanders. Lucas Davenport tries to solve the murders of women who were brutally cut up. Davenport gets involved with a NYPD policewoman who is dying of cancer. Very good reader and a very suspenseful read for an abridged edition.
