Accelerated Learning gBook three in the series and I am liking Lucas Davenport and In one of my earlier reviews I described him as morally bereft He isetting better in this regard although he still has a way to Fitzpatricks Dermatology in General Medicine, Eighth Edition, 2 Volume Set go He has another event in this book where anger management therapy would be advisable but he still manages to be charming and smart as his depression starts to liftEyes of Prey has an excellent story line with two totally reprehensible murderers and a lot of blood andore Lucas manages to rise above his personal problems and performs some excellent police work He also delivers a major surprise at the end with a twist I did not see coming at allSo Charming main character Tick Interesting story Tick Murders and mayhem Tick Major twist at the end TickAll that I desire from a murder mystery I am already looking forward to the next one This rarely happens but I m happy to admit that the Mister was correct The third installment in the Lucas Davenport series was the best by far Granted I read the first two a few years ago but sometimes they read as if they were written about characters from the 80s 90s instead of the 2000s However Lucas and his police buddies are much less misogynistic than earlier books A little macho dude is to be expected but it s what kept me from revisiting this series Thank you Mr SandfordLooking forward to the next installment it s been awhile since I was looking forward to moving up a wait list For some reason the Lucas Davenport of Eyes of Prey seemed like a different man from the one in Shadow Prey and Rules of Prey From my point of view the first book in this series was The Dual Diagnosis Recovery Sourcebook great the second not soreat and this one not very Clashing Views on Abnormal Psychology good at all Iuess I expected better of a Pulitzer prize winning writer and of the Lucas Davenport character I met in Rules of Prey Lucas Davenport in this book has no continuity from the previous booksEven the villains in this book don t seem believable The act of Druze and Bekker running into each other much less thinking of each other as a friend is totally bizarre Carlos Druze has a face that even uncounted plastic surgeries couldn t put back the way it was In the book he is often referred to as the troll David Bekker on the other hand is referred to as beautiful Bekker is a doctor albeit a pathologist For some strange reason the author made Druze s profession an actor Bekker is constantly popping various mind altering pills that cause him to do a little jig and suffer blackouts and massive nose bleeds but this all seems to Writing Matters! - Student Book go unnoticed At times he just retreats for hours to his closet floor In the real world someone like this would not be able to function But together they concoct horrendousruesome murdersThe I write about this book the frustrated I et I know this series is really popular and I know Sandford is still cranking them out Is the next book better Nothing in this book makes sense 25 stars This review spoils the events in the first two books in the series so skip over if you don t want to be spoiled Though I think I am doing a PSA by spoiling this book anyway for those that may hate themselves enough to start reading this series After a brutal murder of a woman in her home and seriously I can do without any horrible murders perpetuated by men against women for a while now a witness is left who saw the murderer Lucas is called up to help lead the investigation The captain believes that Lucas needs something to help him et over the events that happened in Shadow Prey Readers find that Lucas is living alone and barely able to et through his day Apparently almost being killed twice barely able to et through his day Apparently almost being killed twice that and losing his Hudson Valley Mediterranean girlfriend has done a number on him Though Lucas is still provided access to his 2 year old daughter he is no longer sleeping with hisirlfriend so in Lucas s mind that means that she Jennifer is playing Doing Democracy in Indigenen Gemeinschaften games with him There is soon enough another murder which puts the police and Lucas on high alert that another serial killer in their midst which would have me moving the hell out of the area and seems to be striking out against women So Iave this book 12 a star for a variety of reasons First And Foremost The Characters foremost the characters just a joke at this point I now feel bad for anything I ever said
About How One Dimensionalhow one dimensional since I feel like this book could The Secrets of Boys give other books lessons on how to not write characters and motivations for said characters I think this series has pretty much shown that men only care about women and seeing naked women Women only care about using their bodies to manipulate men toet what they want If a woman tells a man she loves him she is Stop Whining--and Start Winning going to be dead or cheated on eventually in these books Oh and serial killers run amok in Minnesota And if you are a serial killer you don t care much for sex except sometimes when you can use sex to show a woman how worthless she is Or you know kill them afterwards Lucas is still a piece of crap It would be different if this character had any redeeming parts at all but he doesn t He designsames big whoop he wears expensive clothes and drives a Porsche Charlie and the Christmas Kitty goodie for you and he stayed friends with a childhood friend even after sheot ugly by the way I hate hate that this is always brought up in the books and he has a daughter that he Il sale della vita gets to see though is angry that the relationship with the mother is cut off for now Lucas doesn t seem that smart He is just an angryuy that does what he wants thinking that his badge affords him the right to rough people up beat them to within an inch of their lives and act as if he should be helped out when he messed up by his superiors and coworkers We also et insight into the mind of the perpetrators in this book and no this is not a spoiler the synopsis on Goodreads and elsewhere lets you know there are two killers and it is boring Seriously one person is so high and crazy one wonders how the heck he is able to funct. Lieutenant Davenport's sanity was nearly shattered by two murder investigations Now he faces something worse Two kil. ,
Hard on their trail and he s etting really pissedThis is probably the most ruesome book in the series and Davenport is at his darkest and most violent here He s working out of a major depression that has virtually paralyzed him and acting out as a rogue cop ala Dirty Harry without even a twinge of conscienceAs always Sandford puts the reader right in the middle of the action The writing is crisp the plot is fast paced and the action is non stop And even in a book this rim there is a fair amount of the humor that characterizes the seriesIt s hard to imagine that there could possibly be a fan of crime fiction who has not sampled this series yet but if that person should exist he or she should probably not begin with this book because while it is a very The Nine of Us good read it s not really representative of the series as a whole Some readers who might otherwise enjoy the series might be put off by the violence that permeates this particular book As always but especially in this case the best place to begin would be at the beginning with the first book Rules Of Prey You won t be disappointed When last I met Lucas Davenport the hero detective of John Sanford s long running and continually bestselling series I ll be honest I hated him In Silent Prey the book prior to Eyes of Prey the third in the series Davenport was cheating on hisirlfriend who had just iven birth to his daughter The woman he was having an affair with was married and despite her attempts to end the affair Davenport kept pushing her into it He was a narcissistic and borderline sociopathic asshole with a badge and a sex addiction problem I hated him so much as a character that I almost ave up on the series Indeed I almost didn t want to finish the bookSomething compelled me to read further though It may have been my slightly obsessive compulsive need to finish a book I started regardless of how bad or infuriating the book is or it may have been the need to see closure to the mystery Say what you will about Davenport Sandford writes a pretty fucking intense thriller In any case I m Hiding in the Bathroom glad I finished itIt began to dawn on me near the end that Sandford wasn t condoning Davenport s behavior at all He was attempting to paint Davenport as the incredibly flawed fucked up and unlikable police detective that we didn tet from the first book He was creating depth He was illustrating the fact that cops may not all be bastions of moral fortitude indeed some of them are complete assholes see Ferguson Cleveland LA New York etc but they nonetheless do a thankless job and their moral flaws don t necessarily interfere with their success in stopping criminals In some cases their moral flaws are the hard to define edge that makes them exceptional cops I know it s fucked up Eyes of Prey begins to The Perils of Pursuing a Prince (Desperate Debutantes, give Davenport some of his due comeuppance At the onset Davenport is suffering from clinical depression brought on by the fact that hisirlfriend Jennifer left him and took his daughter with her He ets rare visitation rights and Jennifer wants to take those away as well
*He Is Beginning To Realize *is beginning to realize his history of philandering is a serious problem Of course thanks to the depression he hasn t had much desire to screw around so he s been oing the celibate routeHe refuses psychiatric treatment however preferring instead to deal with his depression the old fashioned way completely unhealthy violence and acts of police brutality It s actually his recent spate of violent episodes with criminals that has Becca and the Prisoners Cross (The Copernicus Legacy gotten him in hot water with Internal AffairsAll of this is simply background to the real meat of the story a serial killer who violentlyouges out the eyes of the victim The twist There are two serial killers in this one One is an antisocial actor named Druze He commits the murders The brains behind the two man serial killing operation is an incredibly handsome and sociopathic doctor named Bekker He doles out the orders and sets up the kills while he is away ensuring that he always has air tight alibisDavenport knows the doctor is dirty and he knows that there is a second killer but he doesn t have any evidence upon which to build a caseSandford does some interesting things in this book First having two serial killers is interesting logistically In everything I Have in this book First having two serial killers is interesting logistically In everything I Have Two Serial read two serial working together is extremely rare but not completely unheard of I like how Sandford sets up the relationship between the two killers with one being the alpha dog and the other simply following ordersSecond the dynamics between Davenport and Bekker They meet in several key scenes throughout the book and what s interesting is how much they seem to have in common It s telling that initially Bekker actually likes Davenport In Davenport he seems to find a kindred spirit What that potentially says about Davenport is extremely disturbingI m The Commodore (Aubrey/Maturin, glad that I decided toive Sandford another chance I still don t necessarily like Davenport as a character but he is certainly Dare Mighty Things growing on me and Sandford clearlyives him room to mature There are roughly 20 books in this series and based on its popularity I m The Texas Rangers Heiress Wife guessing many other readers have taken an interest in Davenport s emotional and spiritualrowth This might be the best one yet I thought it was ood all the way through although the bad uy was a little too weird but Lucas was very well done He s not a complete Iron Man but the way depression is handled described is perfect And then there is the very end Wow I did not see that coming Usually I have a clue there were several but I missed them since it wasn t the major thread It was handled just beautifully I can t Eternal Quest gush enough I was just stunned still am MasterfulI m reallylad I waited until I could read these books in order There is so much history in the characters I think each would stand well enough alone but certainly wouldn t pack the same punchOn to the next. He dark mirror of Davenport's soul This is the case that will bring Davenport back to life Or push him over the edge.
