Publisher's Summary

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. Lucas Davenport and his team quickly hone 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.

What the Critics Say

" is tough, unstoppable, white-knuckle fiction." (Publishers Weekly)
"The 17th Prey thriller is a cut above recent entries in the series....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....An extra treat is Davenport's ongoing mental gyrations as he compiles a list of rock's 100 greatest tunes for his new I-pod."

Top drawer entertainment - as usual!

Personally, I found Broken Prey to be just as entertaining and captivating as all his other stories. Sandford is of my all time favorite authors, and Ferrone is one of my favorite readers, and I was not disappointed. Couldn't put the story down.

Good story, except

I have listened to several of his other books and they are entertaining. This was too, but had a distinctly anti-gay hostility in tone that went beyond necessary in the story. It felt just like someone who wrote a story about any other group where there was real animosity toward that group under the surface.

Compare this to Mo Hayder's book,which involves pedophilia and murder, the author has a reality check in her prose.

Sandford sure sounds like a man who has "issues" which marred the exposition of his story.
