Book Overview

Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in this nail-biting #1 New York Times-bestseller from John Sandford.

Clayton Deese looks like a small-time criminal, muscle for hire when his loan shark boss needs to teach someone a lesson. Now, seven months after a job that went south and landed him in jail, Deese has skipped out on bail, and the U.S. Marshals come looking for him. They don't much care about a low-level guy--it's his boss they want--but Deese might be their best chance to bring down the whole operation.

Then, they step onto a dirt trail behind Deese's rural Louisiana cabin and find a jungle full of graves.

Now Lucas Davenport is on the trail of a serial killer who has been operating for years without notice. His quarry is ruthless, and--as Davenport will come to find--full of surprises . . .

   Neon Prey
Typical Lucas Davenport plot. A little long, but the story line is solid
   What happened to John Sandford?
I am a huge fan and avid reader of John Sandford. I can't give this novel a single star. I did not finish Neon Prey. I'm not sure if Gloria did something horrible to Mr. Sandford, but there is an explanation for a single character being brutalized, molested, raped by multiple men, etc. I have never known an author to stoop so low to tell a good story. Davenport is careless and a bit ignorant. There are many offensive characters in this book. Don't get me started on cannibalism.
   Worst Prey Book Since Phantom Prey
Some of the Prey books have been read multiple times by me. Neon Prey is a close second to Phantom Prey in my opinion. I don't want Lucas Davenport to complain about being old and his coworkers to say he looks old. The villain was boring. It's time to move on from the marshals service and get Lucas back to Minneapolis. Bob and Rae aren't as compelling as other people. The next book might take place when Lucas was with the BCA. Several of my favorite authors, Daniel Silva, Michael Connelly, and John Sandford, seem to be at a loss as to what to do with their aging characters. Setting a book in the past when they were younger could be the answer.
   Who really wrote this?
Neon Prey was less than his best work and I found it to be less than all of his work. It is kind of flat, and reminds me of the first couple of Virgil Flowers stories that made me suspect that Sandford wasn't doing all the writing. The cop banter didn't pull the reader right down into the circle of cops looking at a body the way only Sandford can. I miss the great characters back in Minn., but I like taking the stories all over the country. Neon Prey is not well edited.
   First time ever - I did not finish a 'Prey' book
I didn't finish it because I didn't care. It was so confusing that it was hard to comprehend. Davenport was not enough. I think it would have made more sense if I had read it until the end. I didn't want to stick with a boring book because there are so many to read. It's time to go on to something else when I skim and skip pages. I hope for a better Davenport story next time.
   Disappointing and boring.
Sandford's great police procedural style includes Neon Prey. It's missing a heart. It is just boring. When someone is yelling, what do we do? I don't care, that's what my thought was. A realistic police procedural with a cannibal and rape is so boring and horrible that it's hard to believe. There is no one to care about the story.
