Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In the 10th installment of his popular Prey series, John Sandford (a.k.a. John Camp) pits his popular antihero, Lucas Davenport, against a pair of cunning killers unlike any he has encountered before.

Attorney Carmel Loan is preternaturally beautiful, intelligent, and ambitious. When she becomes infatuated with fellow barrister Hale Allen, she isn't going to let a little thing like his being married get in her way. A quick meeting with an ex-client sets up the hit on Hale's wife, Barbara. The professional killer, Clara Rinker, is one of the best in the business. Smart, attractive, with a gentle Southern drawl, no one would suspect her of being a top Mafia hit man... er, hit person. When she takes the Allen assignment, she figures it will be easy money for a day's work. But things go wrong from the beginning. Loan's ex-client made a tape of the meeting, and is shaking her down for money. Worse, the shooting of a witness--a cop--brings deputy inspector Lucas Davenport into the case. Somehow Davenport has not only linked Loan to the killing, but seems to have a lead on Rinker as well. Carmel and Clara team up to clean up the loose ends, which includes getting Davenport off their back by whatever means necessary.

Like all of Sandford's books, Certain Prey is a fast and furious ride. Fans of previous Prey books will find Davenport a little older, a little more wary, but no less sharp-witted and determined. Though parts of the plot may stretch the limits of credulity and the dialogue falls a little flat in places, this is still a wonderfully crafted thriller, possibly one of the best of 1999. Certain Prey cements Sandford's standing among such luminaries as James Lee Burke, Lawrence Block, and Thomas Harris. --Perry Atterberry

3.0 von 5 Sternen B Minus...C Plus range. 26. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
With a complete suspension of disbelief this can be a pretty fun read. Give the author a lot of latitude in credulity department and enjoy. The two villainesses are almost cartoonish and stretch the imagination.
This was my first "Prey" series read and I will take the advice of an earlier reviewer and read the initial entry. I liked Lucas Davenport and would like to fill in the blanks on him.
The first hundred pages flew by and then it sputtered and sped up a couple of times. There was some great cop dialog and some interesting characters on Davenport's side of the law. Interesting twist on the cat and mouse genre.
It's fun, but not too likely.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Leicht actionlastig 14. Juli 2007
Von K. Beck-Ewerhardy TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Die Geschichte entwickelt sich etwas kompliziert und wirkt stellenweise ein wenig übertrieben, aber nach der guten Einführung der verschiedenen Charaktere fällt dies eigentlich kaum noch ins Gewicht. Ein spannender und teilweise sehr blutrünstiger Roman, der Frauen mal in einem ganz anderen Licht darstellt. Nichts für schwache Nerven, aber extrem unterhaltsam.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely the best Prey yet! 28. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
As an avid fan of the Prey series, I cannot compliment this book enough. I was totally engrossed and captivated by this story. These calculated and ruthless killers were amazing! I fell for this one hook, line and sinker. I appreciated the lack of a hot & heavy romance (or should I say sexual distraction) that had come to be an expectation with Lucas Davenport. Although he does dally with a smart cop near the end of the story, we don't get the sweaty details this time. I have a higher regard for Davenport after this book as well. I like where this character is going with his life and career. I can't wait to read Easy Prey (and the one after that, and the one after that, and the one after that... keep 'em coming, Sanford!).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Minneapolis and Jaguars 20. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I notice Pete Hautman's Joe Crow drives a Jag, as does Carmen Loan. Is that coincidence or do they like them in Minneapolis? (Carmen's never breaks down).This is an ingenious "noir" a story partly told from the point of view of the criminal that puts us on her side. The more cold-blooded murders she commits the more we find ourselves liking Clara Rinker. She's great character. This was my first John Sandford so I don't know if he uses her again. I'll certainly be checking and buying more Sandfords.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Too confusing 7. Juli 2000
Von Roe
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I didnt like this book so much. I use to love Davenport and in this book he was a blah character. The characters I just couldnt get into, they were "choppy" at best. This was not one of his greatest works. I love the Prey series but maybe Mr. Sanford is getting tired of it!

This is the first book I have read by John Sandford and now I wish I hadn't because of the money I am going to spend buying the rest of his books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enticing Read 28. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I, like many of the other reviewers, have read all of the other Prey novels. This one is easily the most memorable. It seems Mr. Sanford took a little different approach with this episode. Character interaction was a lot more appealing than some of the other books. The antagonists characters were very well defined, and I could almost like them. The plot is one that is not likely to happen. But, overall it makes for a very quick, and pleasureable yarn, different than the others. A great book in this genre, you'll enjoy it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Davenport is as Cool as Minneapolis 25. Juni 2000
Von Dennis
Format:Taschenbuch
Certain Prey is the first Lucas Davenport mystery I've read. It won't be the last. As a former Minneapolitan I felt a closeness to the story both because of the location and the cultural reflection as seen in Davenport's reading material. I'm glad the author did not resort to stereotypical "ya sure, you betcha" characterization some people associate with Minnesota. The author created creditable characters with definite human attributes.
As a fan of the assassination genre, I especially liked the character development and presentation of Clara & Carmel. Certainly, Clara, even though the professional, is a sympathetic villain. Carmel probably represents many people's extreme view of lawyers in general. In Carmel, the author created an unsympathetic but understandable character.
The author has written a tight, no nonsense mystery without a lot of blathering that some authors believe is necessary in their literary endeavors. However, all is not golden. The book reflects a certain degree of sloppiness in the author's and editor's work. At one point, Clara & Carmel are torturing Rolo, an unsavory character, in order to get information they need. They chain him to a bed by looping a chain around his neck and lock this chain on the headboard. Then, to secure his arms, "she (Carmel) took a tight wrap of chain around one of his wrists, snapped on a padlock, leaned over the SIDE (uppercase mine) of the bed, threw the chain beneath it, fished it out from the opposite side, took a wrap around Rolo's other wrist, and snapped on the last padlock," His legs were chained and locked to the footboard. (Page 66)
The man is now spread-eagled on the bed.
