Secret Prey

Secret Prey by John Sandford
Mystery (#9 in Prey series)
Finished on 5/12/06
Rating: A- (8/10 Very Good)

In spite of the weak (and largely irrelevant) introductory chapters (too many confusing details about a corporate merger), this may be the best Lucas Davenport mystery thus far! I thoroughly enjoyed the book, yet should caution those who might chose to read it as a stand-alone or before reading #7 and #8 in the series. Sandford is generally very good about establishing the backstory to these mysteries, but this particular novel has several details interwoven from previous works and not only is there potential for confusion, but spoilers, as well. Great suspense and an intense finale!
