Rules of Prey
By John Sandford
#1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford's “haunting, unforgettable, ice-blooded thriller”* that introduced Lucas Davenport...
The killer was mad but brilliant.
He left notes with every woman he killed. Rules of murder: Never have a motive. Never follow a discernible pattern. Never carry a weapon after it has been used...So many rules to his sick, violent games of death.
But Lucas Davenport, the cop who’s out to get him, isn’t playing by the rules.
“Terrifying...Sandford has crafted the kind of trimmed-to-the-bone thriller that is hard to put down…scary...intriguing...unpredictable.”—Chicago Tribune
“Rules of Prey is so chilling that you’re almost afraid to turn the pages. So mesmerizing you cannot stop...A crackle of surprises.”—*Carl Hiaasen
“Sleek and nasty...A big scary, suspenseful read, and I loved every minute of it.”—Stephen King
“A cop and a killer you will remember for a long, long time.”—Robert B. Parker
Top notch5By joylpc24I love the Prey novels so much, I am rereading them, starting at the beginning. Lucas Davenport is an amazing character.
Read them in Paper - OMG!!!5By Mzldysth1John Camp (aka John Sandford) is a storyteller. That is the highest praise I can give an author. He weaves a story that draws from not only plotline, but from the character development. Each character is fully developed into an individual personality you can cheer for or cheerfully boo. There is nothing left to chance when crafting the personality of Lucas Davenport - Detective extraordinaire. These books are not fast or slow paced; they are methodically laid out to draw you into the suspense of the underlying crime(s) and hook you with the deviations into Lucas' personal life. When you know anything, you're trapped in the world of Lucas Davenport as told by John Camp.
Wonderful5By MattquistThis is my second John Sandford book, and I'm hooked. Masterful storytelling and a eye toward detail that just draws the reader in!

Thank You, Georgia Wade
Slow book2By Matt buThe book dragged on forever. I was just trying to finish the book. It doesn't pick up until chapter 28. Not my type of author.
See why?5By Basil BakhshiAlways wanted to read his first, figured it would clue me in on why there were so many in the series. A well executed lift-off for the rest. Thus far, my favorite way to visit Minnesota. Well worth the $!
Rules of Prey5By Mike PekarMy first by this author but most certainly no my last.
Absolutely Thrilling!5By Jeff is a Warriors fanPutting the book down to tend to my daily activities was honestly a challenge for me. Wanting to continue reading eventually thrust my study schedule into irrevocable chaos and incompleteness, the only remedy being to finish the book. I must note how well each character is developed throughout the book; I felt as if each character was a personal friend, or of the like. The suspense was plentiful, and skillfully foreshadows a thrilling conclusion. Overall a great read, and I recommend this to anyone in search of a great crime/detective story!
Nice 1st book5By Tjader26All the earmarks of a writer who will go a long ways in crime fiction.
