Rules of Prey by John Sandford Book Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford's “haunting, unforgettable, ice-blooded thriller”* that introduced Lucas Davenport...
The killer was mad but brilliant.
He left notes with every woman he killed. Rules of murder: Never have a motive. Never follow a discernible pattern. Never carry a weapon after it has been used...So many rules to his sick, violent games of death.
But Lucas Davenport, the cop who’s out to get him, isn’t playing by the rules.

“Terrifying...Sandford has crafted the kind of trimmed-to-the-bone thriller that is hard to put down…scary...intriguing...unpredictable.”—Chicago Tribune
“Rules of Prey is so chilling that you’re almost afraid to turn the pages. So mesmerizing you cannot stop...A crackle of surprises.”—*Carl Hiaasen

“Sleek and nasty...A big scary, suspenseful read, and I loved every minute of it.”—Stephen King

“A cop and a killer you will remember for a long, long time.”—Robert B. Parker

Rules of Prey (John Sandford) Book Reviews

Love to reasI love murder mysteries, this one was more sinister than I’d like, but a good one..Score: 4/5

Absolutely Thrilling!Putting the book down to tend to my daily activities was honestly a challenge for me. Wanting to continue reading eventually thrust my study schedule into irrevocable chaos and incompleteness, the only remedy being to finish the book. I must note how well each character is developed throughout the book; I felt as if each character was a personal friend, or of the like. The suspense was plentiful, and skillfully foreshadows a thrilling conclusion. Overall a great read, and I recommend this to anyone in search of a great crime/detective story!.Score: 5/5

Rules of PreyI have never been disappointed with any of the Prey Books, by John Sandford . . The character of Lucas Davenport is so compelling and always, I am completely intrigued...Great reading! I hope Lucas always stays in these stories, because I have become quite attached to him.. Thank You, Georgia Wade.Score: 5/5

Slow bookThe book dragged on forever. I was just trying to finish the book. It doesn't pick up until chapter 28. Not my type of author..Score: 2/5

WonderfulThis is my second John Sandford book, and I'm hooked. Masterful storytelling and a eye toward detail that just draws the reader in!.Score: 5/5

Really good!This was my first John Sandford's book and it was such a great read! Kept me engaged and wanting to know more the entire time. Loved it!.Score: 5/5

Top notchI love the Prey novels so much, I am rereading them, starting at the beginning. Lucas Davenport is an amazing character..Score: 5/5

See why?Always wanted to read his first, figured it would clue me in on why there were so many in the series. A well executed lift-off for the rest. Thus far, my favorite way to visit Minnesota. Well worth the $!.Score: 5/5

Read them in Paper - OMG!!!John Camp (aka John Sandford) is a storyteller. That is the highest praise I can give an author. He weaves a story that draws from not only plotline, but from the character development. Each character is fully developed into an individual personality you can cheer for or cheerfully boo. There is nothing left to chance when crafting the personality of Lucas Davenport - Detective extraordinaire. These books are not fast or slow paced; they are methodically laid out to draw you into the suspense of the underlying crime(s) and hook you with the deviations into Lucas' personal life. When you know anything, you're trapped in the world of Lucas Davenport as told by John Camp..Score: 5/5

Another thriller. Always taut and detailed. Hard to put down. Lucas is flawed but irresistible.Great read..Score: 5/5

Rules of PreyAwesome book that grabbed me from the beginning to the end. Read it in 3 days...can't wait to read the rest of the series!.Score: 5/5

Rules of PreyMasterful!.Score: 5/5

ANY of Sanford's "Prey" books are worth the addiction...After reading #1, I was hooked. These are the type of well-written & intense books that once you fall in love with the main character(s) & get hooked on the story, next thing you know everything else around you stops & you're pretty much "living" the adventure. I prize my hardbound collection of Sanford's "Prey Candy"!!.Score: 5/5

Media Circus?I finished all the Virgil Flowers books so I thought I’d start the Lucas Davenport series. I realize Sanford is a journalist, but I wasn’t ready for the detailed of media machinations in this book. Reporters battling, playing one against the other and on and on. I guess you write what you know. A good intro for the most part, I just hope in future novels, there’s more detecting and less reporting..Score: 4/5

1st Lucas Davenport novelI’m glad I finally got to read the first novel in this series. It has all the intensity of his other books. This was fast paced and I couldn’t guess the ending earlier in the book. I will definitely recommend Rules of Prey to friends..Score: 5/5

Nice 1st bookAll the earmarks of a writer who will go a long ways in crime fiction..Score: 5/5

Rules of preyGreat reading! Did not want to put it down,.Score: 4/5

Good read, a real page-turner.I've never read Stanford before and I like his style. Think I will read all of his Prey series in order that they were written. Lucas Davenport was an interesting character I would like to follow..Score: 4/5

DerivativeToo much fluff, poorly phrased passages at times, and too many ideas taken from Red Dragon..Score: 2/5
