Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford's “haunting, unforgettable, ice-blooded thriller”* that introduced Lucas Davenport...
 
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.

“Terrifying...Sandford has crafted the kind of trimmed-to-the-bone thriller that is hard to put down…scary...intriguing...unpredictable.”—Chicago Tribune
 
Rules of Prey is so chilling that you’re almost afraid to turn the pages. So mesmerizing you cannot stop...A crackle of surprises.”—*Carl Hiaasen

“Sleek and nasty...A big scary, suspenseful read, and I loved every minute of it.”Stephen King

“A cop and a killer you will remember for a long, long time.”Robert B. Parker

Media Circus?

I finished all the Virgil Flowers books so I thought I’d start the Lucas Davenport series. I realize Sanford is a journalist, but I wasn’t ready for the detailed of media machinations in this book. Reporters battling, playing one against the other and on and on. I guess you write what you know. A good intro for the most part, I just hope in future novels, there’s more detecting and less reporting.

Simpley AWESOME

one of the best modern detective mysteries. Lucas Davenport is a great character. Be sure to check his first novel.

Still Amazing

I read Rules of Prey in 1990. I just reread it (3/2024) and this book kept me just as enthralled as it did back in the day. Totally satisfying story!
