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."

Darker than usual

Would you try another book from John Sandford and/or Richard Ferrone?

John Sandford and Lucas Davenport are favorites of mine. The villains in this piece seemed darker and the violence more immediate than normal. I won't read it again.

Another Davenport winner

I would recommend this book highly. As always following Davenport was an adventure and the plot was fast paced and very entertaining. Richard Ferrone brings the characters to life like no one else can. I'm a forever fan for Sandford and Ferrone.
