Horrifically gruesome. But a helluva read. ( )

Wow. It was like a light switch went on and the Prey series turned itself upside down. In the fifth book for once we have a more mature Lucas.

Lucas meets a surgeon, Weather that I really like. For once we didn't have a woman who seemed to debase herself to be with Lucas. She accepts him on her own terms and isn't running to have sex with him. Lucas cares about her and for once you see him actually having conversations with her.

And we also have Lucas showing what a good investigator he is. When he is asked to help out in Wisconsin when a family's home is torched and it shows that they were killed beforehand, he agrees. We see that Lucas misses being part of an investigation and tracking down people. The reason why I like the Harry Bosch series so much is that you know that Harry is good at his job. He makes sure that every case counts and doesn't care about political fallout. Up until now, the cases that Davenport investigates doesn't make it seem like he really cared about anything besides getting laid along the way. It just rubbed me the wrong way.

I also didn't guess the bad guy in this one. Sandford cleverly allows us to see this person's POV, but he calls himself the Iceman and until the reveal about who it is, you are left wondering.

The writing is a lot tighter in this one. We have a whole cast of characters who are affected by this family's murder. The flow was good. We stayed mostly on Lucas's third person point of view. We would go back and forth to the Iceman, but I liked how Sandford included him in the plot without revealing who it was.

The setting in this one is a small town in Wisconsin. We have many people saying over and over again that things like this just don't happen. And we see the fallout when Lucas starts to break the case wide open and we see what ugliness was going on beneath the surface of this sleepy little town.

The ending was really good and shocks you a bit. You are left wondering about how the events in this book are going to affect everyone that is left standing. ( )

Lucas is helping a friend solve a crime. He was on vacation but a series of murders in t he bitter cold has kept him in the area . One crazy man and a group of crazy locals have turned their kids into homos. Lots of deaths. Not my type of book to read. ( )

Lucas Davenport is out of Minneapolis and staying in a winter cabin in northern Wisconsin. He is called in to assist when a family of three are murdered. He meets a woman named Weather who is the local doctor. The bodies start piling up and seems connected to a group of people involved in porn and sex with minors. The killer, referred to as the Iceman, presents his version of events, but it is only late in the book that the Iceman is identified. The investigation is complicated by terrible weather and lots of snow and low temperatures. A good book.

t is a blistery cold winter in a small woodsy town in Wisconsin. Everyone knows everyone, and are shocked and frightened to learn of a brutally horrible murder. The cops are questioning and gathering evidence, and it all points to one man. But no one will believe the suspect is guilty. Enter an out-of-town Detective to help with the case. Lucas Davenport knows his stuff. He is fearless and rugged and a reputation for getting his man..one way or another. Time is crucial, the killings have just begun, and all seem to revolve around a photograph that is the only solid clue. A woman Doctor could be the next victim and as Lucas tries his best to protect her while closing in, we also see another side to this tough guy, and the two grow closer, adding a layer of romance to this multi-faceted story as well.

The eerie snowbound locations lend plenty of isolated, creepy texture to the plot, while John 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. ( )
