The killer was mad but brilliant.
He left notes with every woman he killed. Rules of murder: Never have a motive. Never follow a discernible pattern. Never carry a weapon after it has been used...So many rules to his sick, violent games of death.
But Lucas Davenport, the cop who’s out to get him, isn’t playing by the rules.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In Rules of Prey we meet maverick detective Lucas Davenport in the first of a spine-tingling crime series. As a Minneapolis lieutenant he’s not afraid to do whatever it takes to get justice for the Twin Cities. When a ravenous murderer sends the area into panic, Davenport takes his blind determination to the next level (expect misconduct that will make your jaw drop). The high-suspense writing of American novelist John Sandford gives us a shocking, and often dark, look into the mind of a criminal catcher. If Davenport’s rule-breaking swagger had you reading with baited breath, rejoice! There are many mores novels in Sandford’s street-smart series.
``Making his fiction debut, `Sandford,' a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist using a pseudonym his real name is John Camp, has taken a stock suspense plot--a dedicated cop pursuing an ingenious serial killer--and dressed it up into the kind of pulse-quickening, irresistibly readable thriller that many of the genre's best-known authors would be proud to call their own,'' stated PW.
