Luckily, with WINTER PREY, Sandford has changed his structure to the better, creating a nerve-frying tale of terror that ranks with the finest of the decade. The eerie snowbound locations lend plenty of isolated, creepy texture to the plot, while Sandford brilliantly elicits a disturbing, menacing atmosphere that puts us right into the story, giving us ingenious clues and surprise plot revelations to keep us glued to the pages all night long. Lucas Davenport emerges as a fully realized individual, while the supporting characters are first-rate, as are the action scenes and forensic details. A masterpiece.
Davenport, almost an anti-hero, almost unflappable, flapping as he has to fly into a storm meets Weather. Not weather, Weather. Well, he does meet weather too, and the bleak, white, frozen expanses are graphically described and live in your head.
As an Englishman I found this book quite interesting finding out about the Scandanavian influences in Minessota. It's also interesting finding just how cold the winters are in the Northern States. I'll never moan about an English winter again! (He lied...)
Don't start here if you haven't dipped your literary toes in the Prey waters, start with Rules of Prey. You'll soon end up here...
