Mind How You Go
on 22 June 2007
There are grisly crimes and there are grisly crimes. There is nothing much worse when a child is abducted. This is what Lucas Davenport and is force of police officers face when a mother and her two children are taken in broad day light. The kidnapper seems to be a twisted individual who is drawn to playing mind games, giving the police clues, but never enough to reveal his whereabouts. Can Davenport use his skills as an investigator and creator of RPG games to get into the head of this dangerously deranged killer?
'Mind Prey' is another Prey novel that follows the template that has served John Sandford so well. The reader knows from the off who the criminal is and we follow both them and Davenport as the chase begins. This style of narrative is very exciting and 'Mind Prey' is a great example of an action crime thriller. The characters, both good and bad, are really well realised and you care about what happens to them. This is not the greatest in the series as it is slightly formulaic, but it is still a great slice of crime drama. Well worth a read.
