Sandford's "Prey" books always keep me glued to the page, and this was no exception.
The characters are well drawn and believable (the St. Paul chief of police is based
on the actual person). There are multiple crimes, but what ties them together?

Icing on the cake is that it's set in Minneapolis-St.Paul, as are many of the Lucas
Davenport stories - reading it, I think "Yeah, I know that building - I've been there -
I've driven past that place."

And a Sandford character from some of his other books , BCA investigator Virgil Flowers,
pops up a couple of times, as well as Kidd, the artist/hacker from another series.

My sister took this book home from our Assiniboine Park meetup with DrSlump612 and JudySlump612 in July. She has read it and passed it on to me. DrSlump612 makes such a good case for it that I intend to read it too.

Apparently this is the seventeenth book in this series but it is the first one I have read. For some reason I had always thought that this "Prey" series involved vampires and I just don't do vampire fiction. That was an erroneous assumption and there are no supernatural beings in this book (except for the lead investigator being supernaturally brilliant at solving crimes). Looks like I'm adding another author to my list of favourite mystery writers.

Lucas Davenport is an investigator with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (or BCA for short). He mostly works outside of the Twin Cities region but when a wealthy widow and her maid are killed in the city the governor asks that Davenport be involved. Constance Bucher collected art and antiques and quilts and some items may be missing from her home so the motive for the killings may have been theft. Davenport is trying to figure that out but he is also dealing with another case that involves a State Senator who is accused of having sexual relations with a girl under 16. The political overtones of that case are causing some serious headaches. The murder case becomes even more complicated when Davenport learns that another rich widow in Wisconsin was killed some years ago and that the two women knew each other. While Davenport is unravelling the threads the reader knows who committed the murders so the book becomes a will they be caught mystery rather than a whodunnit. That doesn't take any suspense away from the plot.

I've only been in Minneapolis/St. Paul a few times but I feel like I know the general outlines of the locale of this book. It certainly makes me want to visit again. I especially would like to see the Walker Art Center and its sculpture Spoonbridge and Cherry by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen which is mentioned in this book.

I will take this book to our Winnipeg meetup today. If no-one takes it home I will leave it on the OBCZ shelf for a new reader.

When you find a BookCrossing book it is yours to do with what you like. You can read it and keep it or pass it on or if you don't think it is your kind of book pass it on to someone who might like it or release it in a spot for someone else to find like you just did. Whatever you choose it would be great if you could write a short note letting us know what new adventures the book is on.

I picked this up from a friend at one of our monthly Bookcrossing meetings. I’m intrigued that it’s set in the Twin Cities. Looks good!
