I consider John Sanford's Prey series light entertainment. The story and characters are not as harsh and deep as I normally like (think Chandler, Spillane, Thompson), but there's nothing wrong with being entertained without the depth of the social and human conditions. This is why I gave the book 4 stars. ( )

Great story line filled with twists, turns and dead ends. Lucas Davenport is a man with a mission. Murders are stacking up, seemingly not related except by the thinnest of threads. Antiques belong to a whole different world than that in which he is comfortable and knowledgeable. A crash course takes him into the museum, the homes of the wealthy and the back rooms of dealers.

Lucas Davenport is called into a investigation where several elderly people have been killed and it looks like they are connected to the world of antiques. Can Lucas find out who is involved before someone else is killed? ( )

At first it appeared to be a routine and random home invasion gone wrong. Two elderly women violently dead, missing electronics, smashed antiques... except the thieves took the wrong types of things, the usual suspects are turning up innocent, and the random burglary is only one in a series of not-so-random break-in/homicides. Davenport knows there's something else going on, but he can't quite put his finger on it.

Cleverly plotted and difficult to put down. ( )

Not as exciting as some of the other Lucas Davenport novels, because this one is about quilts and artwork. Still, Sandford's writing is always seamless and tight. He always tells a good story, just some better than others.

Loved this observation:

"The thing about Botox is that when you've had too much, you then have to fake reactions just to look human--and it's impossible to distinguish real fake reactions from fake fake reactions." ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399154213, Hardcover)

In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random-if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to . . . certainly nothing he ever expected. Which is too bad, because the killers-and, yes, there is more than one of them-the killers are expecting him. Brilliantly suspenseful, filled with rich characterization and exciting drama, Invisible Prey is further proof that Sandford is in a class of his own.

"In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a metal pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as he looks more closely, Davenport begins to wonder if the items are actually so small or the victims so random, if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to ... certainly nothing he ever expected. Which is too bad, because by this time the killers - and yes, there are more than one of them - the killers are expecting him."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
