Broken Prey

John Sandford: Broken Prey (UK 2006)

From the Publisher:
The first corpse is found on a river bank. The second in an isolated farmhouse. Both have been savagely beaten, the skin flayed from their bodies, their throats cut. For both victims, there's a DNA match. Charlie Pope, a convicted sex offender recently released from the Minnesota Security Hospital, has cut himself free from his court-imposed ankle bracelet and disappeared. Now all Lucas Davenport has to do is find him.

But something about this case doesn't smell right. The killings were meticulously calculated and methodical. Pope is of low mental intelligence, incapable of careful forethought and planning. All the evidence points to Pope -- but Davenport has his doubts. To find the answers, he must track down his key suspect. And to do that, he'll need the help of the Big Three: three vicious serial killers locked up in the state Security Hospital. Three killers as cunning as they are deranged...

Broken Prey

John Sandford: Broken Prey (USA 2006)

From the Publisher:
The first body is of a young woman, found on a Minneapolis riverbank, her throat cut, her body scourged and put on display. Whoever did this, Lucas Davenport knows, is pushed by brain chemistry. There is something wrong with him. This isn¹t a bad love affair.

The second body is found three weeks later, in a farmhouse six miles south. Same condition, same display -- except this time it is a man. Nothing to link the two victims, nothing to indicate that the killings end here.

"This guy..." Lucas said. He took a deep breath, let it out as a sigh. "This guy is going to bust our chops."
And soon he is going to do far, far worse than that...

Broken Prey

John Sandford: Broken Prey (USA 2005)

From the Publisher:
Lucas Davenport confronts a living nightmare, in one of the scariest Prey novels yet from the number-one bestselling author.
The "Big Three" are a trio of inmates locked up in the Minnesota Security Hospital over the years, each a particularly vicious serial killer, each with his own distinct style and propensities. Everybody feels much safer knowing that they're behind bars. Except... there's a new killer on the loose. And his handiwork bears a disturbing resemblance to some of the finer points practiced by the Big Three, details that never even made the papers.

Davenport and his team quickly home in on a possible suspect, a man named Charlie Pope, who was released from the same hospital prison a few weeks earlier, and who now seems to have cut himself free from his court-imposed ankle bracelet and disappeared. But is he really the one? And why do the Big Three look so agitated?

Brilliantly suspenseful, consistently surprising -- once again, Sandford has outdone himself.

John Sandford: Broken Prey. Putnam's, ISBN: 0399152725 (May, 2005), 328 p., $26.95.
