Don't believe the negative comments. This is another great thriller by the master of the genre. Very topical, as Davenport investigates all manner of radical and kooky groups, some scary, others hilarious. Highly recommended.
This was my first John Sandford book that I have read, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty of action and I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. Two thumbs up.
Liked this better than most of the recent Sandford books. The plots about far right-wing politics make me sad because they are too close to recent items in the news but at least the book is timely. Especially liked Sandford drawing the parallels and showing the similarities between Davenport and the current villain. Also liked that the current villain was humanized in a number of ways instead of just being an “other”.
I have read many of John Sanford books. This is really not very good.
Tried very hard but just couldn’t get into this one. Slow start and very disappointing churn.
Davenport comes across as old and weary. Maybe it’s time to retire him.
Not at all among Sandford’s best.
'Masked Prey' was probably being written long before the insanity of 2020. The publishers probably picked a release date for 'Masked Prey' long before the political insanity of 2020. I could have done without the predictable, clichéd politics. Personally, I am sick to death of politics and all it's iterations and machinations.
This Prey lacked the normal wit we have between Lucas and his fell0w crime fighters. It seemed forced and not very witty. Masked Prey is much more thinking and running down whatever ideas the thoughts produced. I don't think the plot was especially fast-paced. I do enjoy Rae and Bob and am glad they are back even while they reluctantly have to sit on their hands and weapons while Lucas thinks.
I've been reading John Sanford/John Camp since 1995. John needs to find himself again by re-reading his earlier books. And bring back Kidd!
I have read every Lucas Davenport mystery since 1989. One of the reasons I was drawn to the books was that they were set in the Twin Cities. I could picture the settings and this was a plus. In the later books Lucas is working as a federal marshal and is no longer working in Minnesota. Plus his family is no longer a large part of the story line. I miss them. This book is timely with its investigation of right wing extremist groups, but it was definitely not a favorite for me from the series. Kristi & Abby Tabby
Well developed story line with lots of twists and turns. The usual violence and as always diet coke. Think Coca-Cola must be a paying advertiser. Not his best work.
This is a super-page turner-hard to put down-addictive Prey series read that I thoroughly enjoyed. One quibble though with the author regarding Lucas Davenport considering himself to be a "hunter." Lucas needs to admit that he is more of a "hunter-killer."
