Well I gave my usuall trip down James Patterson's Books lane a rest for a book as since giving Patterson a chance and liking him so much i was impressed and somewhat intrigued by the posts and reviews i have read on Sandford's Prey series featuring Minneapolis cop Lucas Davenport. This book although sometimes feeling a little bit draggy, was well thought out as Sandford seems to connect all the dots perfectly making for a more beliveable murder mystery. So many authors i have read in the same genre constantly leave out the 'small but important stuff' but this doesnt seem to occure in this story.
Not as many twists and turns in this as i would like however the main charector Davenport is a very cool detective which made for a quick page turner. He is a tough no-nonsense type cop who is constantly pushing his boundaries in order to egt the job done and get his man. The killer in this named by the police and the associated press as the Maddog who after a few victims gets assigned to Davenport a cop who is also under the gun with his own squad. Davenport has to deal with catching this crazy of a killer aside from all the women in his life on top of all this he is a game maker.
After finishing 'Rules' i immediatly went to Sandford's website and found out it is indded the first in a long series of novels that are dedicated to the Lucas Davenport charector. I already have the second one on reserve at my local library! A good read!
