Read full description of the books:
Most mental health professionals would probably tell you that a clinical depression needs to be treated with a combination of drugs and therapy, but Lucas Davenport found his own method of pulling himself out of a funk by beating the snot out of a pimp and then trying to track down a pair of wacko serial killers. I guess it’s cheaper than Prozac.
An insane pathologist, Michael Bekker, has teamed up with a deformed stage actor named Carlo Druze to pull a Hitchcock-style Strangers On A Train arrangement in which Druze will kill Bekker’s wife in exchange for Bekker murdering a theater manager that is about to fire Druze. Their plan goes off the rails when the lover of Bekker’s wife walks in on Druze after he just finished killing her. The lover escapes and calls the police but refuses to identify himself or come in as a witness.
Meanwhile, Davenport has been fighting off suicidal thoughts and trying to pull himself out of a deep, dark mental hole. Bekker is such a weird and creepy person that almost everyone who knows him assumes he killed his wife or hired it done, but his alibi is airtight. The complicated case gets Davenport interested in something for the first time in months, and he throws himself into the investigation while trying to find the witness who could identify Druze.
The beginning of this one makes it seem as if Sandford was using the burned-out-cop cliché, but what makes it interesting is the twist that he puts on it. It isn’t police work that has sent Lucas spiraling down, it’s a brutal and gruesome case that perks him back up. Like Sherlock Holmes, Lucas lives for interesting problems and his mind turns on him when he doesn't have some puzzle to think about. As usual in the Prey series, there’s some genuinely freaky bad guys, and Davenport engages in all kinds of shady maneuvers as he tries to push them into a mistake.
The only problem with this one is that the Bekker character is a bit too much. He’s fascinating as a monster obsessed with death that literally breaks into a jig sometimes, but it’s kinda hard to believe that a guy who is that goddamn crazy can make the coldly logical moves that Bekker comes up with to throw the cops off their trail. Sandford is great at creating villains who are chilling sociopaths but he generally also gives them motives like greed, revenge or jealousy to go along with their insanity. Bekker starts out like that but degenerates into this cartoonish version of a serial killer who is hooked on prescription drugs and has done everything from killing children in a cancer ward to torturing a paralyzed woman for his ‘research’ into death.
Still it’s another great thriller from Sandford with some genuinely surprising twists that changed the course of the entire series.
Next: Lucas takes a trip to New York in Silent Prey.
