I don't want to say too much except that I was shocked at the reveal of who did it in this one. Sandford played a very good game with readers. I honestly didn't get it until we finally see who has been pulling strings all along. I was also sad to see how Lucas is dealing with the fallout to his relationship with Weather ending. Him getting involved with one of his subordinates didn't work for me though. She was a bit too crude (like Lucas) so I don't see them lasting too long.

Lucas is half-hearted in this one. He is dealing with the end of his relationship with Weather after his actions in the last book. He is hitting a depressive episode and all of his friends and colleagues are concerned about him. Lucas wants Weather back, but doesn't know what he can do. When he's asked to keep an eye on an investigation involving a wealthy banker, Lucas feels like it's not going to be a very interesting case. However, the more he probes, the more he realizes that things are not what they same. When Lucas starts probing more, it appears that someone in this banker's circle may have been ensuring that no matter what, someone always came ahead.

The secondary characters in this one like Sloan, Del, Roux, are good. We even get Ellie in this too, though I wanted more. Lucas is at a crossroads in this one with him selling off his business, he just honestly doesn't know if police work is going to fulfill him or not.

The flow was much tighter in this one than in the last book where it was all over the place.

The ending was a surprise, I was shocked at what all goes down. ( )

I really enjoy the Sanford Prey books. However, I wish Goodreads had a differentiation between literary fiction and entertainment. (Yes, there is overlap; yes, the difference is subjective; move along.) I started The Prague Cemetery by Eco immediately after, so I'm reluctant to give this book four stars, although it was enjoyable and suspenseful and did everything it was supposed to do, and then some. The Prague Cemetery is a different kind of fiction, and evokes a completely different response, and it, also, would get four stars. But there really is no comparison, and it annoys me that these two books are lumped into the same category. ( )

I rather like the character, Lucas Davenport. Good story. Forgot it almost immediately.

Sandford’s early Prey novels seemed to be more mystery based. Even when we knew who the killer was, there remained some element that Lucas Davenport had to figure out, which usually came as a surprise to the reader. Though the author tries to create something different about each book, they’ve evolved into “here’s the villain, here’re the good guys, let’s follow both until they converge.” Secret Prey splits the difference. The killer is concealed for the first half of the book, and then it’s a race to the end.

The chairman of the board of a major bank is murdered while deer hunting, and thanks to a forthcoming merger there are plenty of suspects. Actually, the suspect pool is considerably bigger than usual. But if you like Sanford’s work--and I do--you’ll be entertained as Davenport wades through the various possibilities. Maybe not Sandford’s very best but up there. ( )

If you combine cop humor and series murder, you have a Lucas Davenport mystery. Four friends on a hunting trip, one, a bank president on the verge of becoming a very rich man, ends up dead. Davenport looks at what seems to be a hunting accident, but as he digs deeper into the lives of the employees that stood to lose their jobs, it seems to be much more. A great Davenport mystery. ( )

De voorzitter van de raad van bestuur trok de deur achter zich dicht, zette zijn geweer tegen de blokhut, en liep naar het eind van de veranda.
The Chairman of the board pulled the door shut behind him, stacked his rifle against the log-sided cabin, and walked down to the end of the porch.
