Overview

Lucas Davenport confronts a living nightmare, in one of the scariest Prey novels yet from the number-one bestselling author. The “Big Three” are a trio of inmates locked up in the Minnesota Security Hospital over the years, each a particularly vicious serial killer, each with his own distinct style and propensities. Everybody feels much safer knowing that they’re behind bars. Except . . . there’s a new killer on the loose. And his handiwork bears a disturbing resemblance to some of the finer points practiced by the Big Three, details that never even made the papers. Davenport and his team quickly home in on a possible suspect, a man named Charlie Pope, who was released from the same hospital prison a few weeks earlier, and who now seems to have cut himself free from his court-imposed ankle bracelet and disappeared. But is he really the one? And why do the Big Three look so agitated? Brilliantly suspenseful, consistently surprising-once again, Sandford has outdone himself.””

Praise

“John Sandford delivers yet another blistering tale from the life of Lucas Davenport, surely one of the most attractive cops on the crime-fiction beat today…The plot is complex and full of red herrings.”—The Associated Press

“Sandford ratchets up the tension and suspense in tough, spare prose that shows us rather than tells us what is going on…Broken Prey more than lives up to its predecessors in what has become a bestselling franchise in the mystery/thriller genre.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Nonstop tension.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The plotline twists (just when you think you have everything figured out, you don’t) will surprise even the most jaded reader of thrillers…Broken Prey is taut and tangy. A reader who expects to read half one night and half the next may find his or her light on well into the small hours, unable to stop till the final page. That’s Sandford’s trademark, and a fine one at that.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Sandford is probably the best thriller writer working today, and his ‘Prey’ series is proof. In this one, Lucas Davenport tracks a particularly disturbing serial killer.”—San Antonio Express-News

“A real whodunit…it contains supersized servings of all the elements readers have come to treasure in the series: Davenport’s quirky, self-deprecating, and ironic worldview; plenty of graveyard humor; and a dynamic sense of place, from the Minnesota countryside to the foreboding gothic architecture of the asylum. An extra treat is Davenport’s ongoing mental gyrations as he compiles a list of rock’s 100 greatest tunes for his new iPod. His musical critiques are pure rock-fan, and the final list is a hoot. Byzantine plot, memorable characters, and a subliminal soundtrack of classic rock ’n’ roll. What’s not to like?”—Booklist (starred review)

“A tale so fast-moving you won’t even notice the unobtrusively expert detective work till the second time around.”—Kirkus Reviews
