A friend promised me that the Prey series gets better after the fourth book. Moonlight and I read the first three books two years ago and threw in the towel since Davenport sucked beyond the telling in our reviews. I hate to admit this though, my friend is right. The series gets better after the fourth book. It's like Sandford realized he was writing Davenport like a psychopath and people were not rooting for him. The female characters also are better developed thank goodness. So I just sped through a ton of the books in this series (thanks to the library) and finally at 1 am last night finally went to sleep after a lackluster book #11 that just brought back old Davenport (who I hated).

"Silent Prey" takes Lucas out of Minnesota to New York to help catch a serial killer (Michael Bekker) he captured in the previous books. He goes to New York to help out former lover Lily Rothenburg with not only capturing Bekker but also with helping her out with capturing what appears to be a vigilante that killed a friend of hers.

Lucas still sucks in this one. He has left the police force, and though he mentions his daughter, he is pretty much solo and wishing for a woman. Because without sex, who would Lucas be? Sorry for the sarcasm, but honestly I wanted to brain Lucas in this one. And Lily. She had an affair with Lucas and even though she's seeing someone still feels a magnetic pull to Lucas. It got old as hell. And Lucas having pangs made me roll my eyes too. There is mention of Lucas's money and his gaming company which still makes me laugh.

There is not much there there in this book. The two plots don't work very well and we go from Lucas hunting Bekker and investigating a possible cop who is behind the vigilante killings to Bekker's third person point of view. I just found myself bored throughout this book and was so happy when it was over.

The setting moves from Minnesota to New York, but you don't get any sense of New York besides people talking about how hot it is.

The ending was a joke and a half. I just read it and shook my head. ( )

This book takes place pretty quickly after Book 3 Eyes of Prey. I admit I was dreading this book because it was two of my least favorite characters back. Lily and the villain Bekker. I never bought Lily as a serious love interest for Davenport and Bekker was not a great villain. He was evil and gruesome but just didn’t seem worthy of two books. I found the sections from Bekker’s point of view to be completely uninteresting and just wasn’t into those parts of the story. Bekker just seemed to be a quick reactive thinker and not an actual criminal mastermind worthy of Lucas’ talent. These were the times I was just hoping the book would hurry up and get through. I feel like the author knew this as well and threw in the “Robin Hood” to drive up the intensity.

The “Robin Hood” storyline seemed to be a last minute add like the author didn’t make his page count and needed something to add some more time/pages to the story. The author introduced this storyline fairly quickly but then it was only discussed a few more times until the climatic ending. I guess after reading the other books I was expecting more.

I still love the Davenport character though and wasn’t disappointed in the switch to New York as other reviewers were. This switch up allowed John Sanford to showcase Lucas as a true detective not just some hick from a small town. Lucas’ instincts are on point and you could see him work through things in his mind.

3.5 Stars For some reason (and I can't quite put my finger on it) I didn't enjoy this book in the series as much as I have the previous books. Hopefully the next book in the series will prove to be a more engaging read once again. ( )

Book 4 of the Lucas Davenport series and a continuation of the storyline involving Bekker the baddie from Eyes of Prey. This book takes Davenport to NY to assist one of his old flames on the Bekker case in addition to investigating the "Robin Hood" killers. This book was pretty good. The mystery aspect kept me guessing. I enjoy reading about Davenport but his many women conquests drive me nuts. ( )
