Publisher's Summary

The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.


What the Critics Say

"A police procedural as effective as it is brutal." (Publishers Weekly)
"Sleek and nasty...a big, scary suspenseful read." (Stephen King)

Later Davenport is better

This is definitely not my favorite Lucas Davenport book, but since it is the first, that is to be expected. The plot is a little more straight ahead and simple and Lucas lacks the human complexity which he develops later in the series. Nonetheless, it was good to check in at the beginning of the series to get some context. And the story movss along well enough and has enough of Sandford's trademark gritty texture and local flavor to make it worth the read. He has come a long way since these early days.
