While this was Sandford's 3rd Lucas Davenport novel, I only discovered it last week. This was a paperback reprint, with a new introduction by the author. In it, Davenport is still working for the Minneapolis Police Department, but the characters of Sloan and Del Capslock are already integral to his investigations, as is his old friend Elle. (In the course of the novel, he asks Sloan's wife what his first name is. She doesn't know, she says. She never asked him.)
Davenport's character is still being fleshed out, and the he undergoes considerable emotional scarring during this story. ( )

“Lucas is depressed..."
If you could sum up Eyes of Prey in three words, what would they be?
Sad, Maddening, dramatic

What did you like best about this story?
Lucas is fighting the "Winter Blues" and as the story progresses he starts to heal and get better because of him finding a love interest. But the sad and maddening thing of this story is the loss of this love interest as she becomes one of the murders Davenport has to investigate

What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Ferrone allows the characters to have their own voices without over doing it. He is able to follow the dramatic twist and turns with his voice over so the listener is never out of touch with the tactile feel of the storyline as it happens. I look forward to continuing this series and hope MR Ferrone continues to narrate this series.

Any additional comments?

A dark book with creepy antagonists as well as Lucas Davenport struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. Well paced, page-turning action, and a nifty plot twist at the end. I felt the story was cluttered with a few too many characters, sometimes causing a bit of confusion trying to remember who was who and keeping track of everyone's whereabouts. But a minor quibble. A solid offering from Mr. Sandford. ( )

Number-one *New York Times* bestselling author John Sandford pits Lieutenant Lucas Davenport against two killers, men as different as night and day-except in the method of their madness. It's all in the eyes...

### Review

...[*Eyes of Prey* has] one of the most horrible villains this side of Hannibal. -- **Richmond Times-Dispatch**

One of the best hard-case cops on the crime scene today. -- **Houston Post**

Relentlessly swift. Genuinely suspenseful...Excellent. -- *Los Angeles Times*

Lieutenant Lucas Davenport is after a serial killer who disfigures his victims' eyes.

Yay! Book #3 saved the series! I enjoyed #1, but #2 didn't appeal to me, leaving me to wonder if I was going to continue. Thankfully, this story line kept my attention and Lucas actually calmed down in his attitude and philandering ways. I might end up liking the guy after all. There was a lot of foul language, graphic scenes and drug abuse to muck through; however, I still found that the gathering of evidence to decipher who and why these people were being killed to be enough to keep me intrigued.

Book description
The death of the doctor's wife horrifies the Twin Cities, especially what the killer did to her eyes. A report comes in of a troll-like man near the murder scene, his face a patchwork of scars, but that bizarre clue is all Lieutenant Lucas Davenport has to go on as he attempts to sort out the murder. Still trying to recover from a pair of particularly brutal cases, bone-weary, his nerves fraying, Davenport isn't sure he's up to it – until it happens again, the same savagery, the same mutilation of the eyes, and he realizes he has no choice. Little by little, Davenport is drawn into the web of a man of extraordinary intelligence and evil, a master manipulator fascinated with all aspects of death: the dark mirror of Davenport's own soul. As the hunt winds through darker and ever more frightening events, Davenport knows there is no turning back. This is the case that will lift him back to life – or push him irrevocably over the edge.
