From Publishers Weekly

"Making his fiction debut, 'Sandford,' a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist using a pseudonym his real name is John Camp, has taken a stock suspense plot--a dedicated cop pursuing an ingenious serial killer--and dressed it up into the kind of pulse-quickening, irresistibly readable thriller that many of the genre's best-known authors would be proud to call their own," stated PW.

From Library Journal

Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, highly touted killer detective, invents intricate video games that he sells for cash. Called in to aid the Minneapolis team scrambling to stop a psychopathic serial woman-slayer, Lucas almost meets his match. The self-styled "mad dog" murderer views his rape/stabbings as a game as well, setting up obstacles for the police, carefully selecting his victims, and priding himself on clever moves. Despite his largely deja vu plot, debut novelist Sandford ( also the author of The Fools Run due from Holt in September under the name John Camp; see Prepub Alert, LJ 4/1/89) delivers tense action, chilling excitement, and thrilling suspense. Fast-moving prose and romantic sidelines add a little zest, too. BOMC featured selection.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Textbook killer, textbook ending! 27. Dezember 2004
You have to make allowances for Sandford - this was his first Prey book, the Davenport character was just starting out and not yet fully developed. I didn't like this book much but considering the allowances I just mentioned, we can't be too hard on Sandford...
My gripes about the book - Louis Vuillon is the most boring and unimaginative serial killer ever. Sandford could really have researched some real-life serial killers (whom he mentions in the novel) and used them to make Vuillon more interesting. I wasn't in the least bit scared about him as a result. Everything he said and did was cliched and predictable. It was so obvious that he was going to go after the surviving victim again (I'm not spoiling anything here - it's so blatantly obvious, trust me!). As to Davenport's character and ethics, well OK if you're up against a ruthless murderer and you need to save an innocent life, some ethics and procedures get put to one side for a minute. I can understand that. But Sandford portrays Davenport as a mindless womanising stupid thug who punches first and asks questions later - and he's a lieutenant! A man of rank and responsibility! I'm sure some real-life cops will read this book and shudder.
The story goes well in some places but in other places, you'll shudder in disbelief and suddenly want the story to be over. My one piece of advice to anyone reading this - don't judge the Prey series by this one book. The later Prey books are MUCH better and the Davenport character changes for the better in the later books. Keep reading the series! It's very rare that an author's first book becomes his or her best. Don't be put off an excellent series of books by this bad one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The ultimate thrill 24. März 1998
My first book by John Sandford. There will be more. This is one of the most intriguing mysteries I have ever read. The character of Lucas Davenport - in spite of all his extravagancies - is a very credible character that combines the wish of law and order as well as the dark side in all of us. The plot is brilliant. A real page turner.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I can't believe I spent money on this tripe 11. Mai 2000
Von Ny-er
So I read all the reviews here and was eagerly looking forward to reading a new author in a genre I enjoy -- thriller/crime.
Wow, was I ever let down.
First of all I found it incredibly hard to like the main character Lucas Davenport, particularly after he is portrayed as having absolutely no scruples -- from planting evidence (he's a cop!) because he can't find any other way to nab the killer, to setting up two women to be the victim of the killer so that he can catch the guy in the act.
What kind of police work IS this? He breaks the law at every turn, and seemingly doesn't have a conscious about doing that, leaving you feeling that his character is very two dimensional -- of little substance.
I know this is supposed to relate some "real life" police activity, but in most thriller books I've read, the main character has at least SOME redeeming qualities.
Lucas Davenport is out for himself. Period. I could find nothing to like about him, and that made the book tedious to read. I suspect that between his womanizing attributes and his tough-guy law-breaking ways, this book is based solely on the author's own fantasies.
Do yourself a favor, skip this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen DISAPPOINTING CONCLUSION 22. Mai 2000
While somewhat of a struggle to get into the story, once I was in I was hooked. Yeah, Davenport is a shameless womanizer -- and a cop w/ few scruples. But I still went along, hoping for twists and turns and a tantalizing conclusion. Unfortunately, the work ran out of gas leaving me saying, 'OK, that's it?' Sandford could learn from David Baldacci and John Katzenbach for keeping his stories exciting till the very end. Thumbs down.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Kept me in the dark 3. Mai 2000
I chose to read this book for a school project. I ended up really enjoying it and wanting to read the rest of the "prey" series. The characters and the plot made me not want to put the book down. Lucas Davenport(the detective) was very charming and his character was very well thought out. What scared me the most was the killer who called himself maddog, was a lawyer, who everyone knew. He was a normal guy to the outside world. It really shocked me when the author mentioned Duluth MN because it just proves that it can happen anywhere, and you shouldn't trust people that may look like they have a good life and they seem normal. I think the ending could've been better if the killer would've dissappeared and it left you in suspence as to what happened to him, then have him pop up in a following novel.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, but lacking in character 2. Mai 2000
Von Casey
I enjoyed this book to the end, but Davenport is a character that needs some serious adjustments. His lifestyle is a bit too much, and his womanizing does take away both the reality of the character and the understanding of his nature. I have to give Sanford credit for trying to create someone who is a combination of Charles Bronson, Casanova, and Gary Gygax. I could of never come up with that, but then again I could of tried and came up with someone as equally unrealistic. He writes an excellent story, but I wish he could do without Lucas Davenport. I gave the book two stars, and an extra one because it takes place in my home town.
