    John Sandford is back with his dapper, dangerous Minneapolis deputy police chief Lucas Davenport for a ninth "
    preyer" meeting. Fans of the series will be glad to hear that it's full of smart suspense and deduction as well as explosive action. Davenport and his fellow cops are still recovering from the deadly revenge scheme that maimed them in Sudden Prey, which seems to have ended the relationship between Lucas and his doctor lady friend. This accounts for the depression that dogs him as he is sent to investigate the killing of top banking executive Daniel Kresge in a hunting lodge north of Minneapolis. Any of Kresge's four fellow hunters--all employees at his Polaris Bank--could have shot him, and all had motives, as did his almost ex-wife. About halfway through the book we find out who the real killer is, just a few pages before Lucas does, and that villain is a masterful creation, an example of the banality of evil worthy of Hannah Arendt. This is where Sandford's beautifully honed skills at creating suspense really kick in: he keeps us fascinated as Davenport, revitalized by an affair with a jaunty colleague, tries to turn what we all know into hard evidence. --Dick Adler --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: You'll never guess who done it!!!, October 27, 2002 Reviewer: Keith Hunt from Houston, Texas United States Minnesota banking executive is mysteriously killed during a hunting accident... Just before one of the most extreme mergers of banking history that is bound to make all the right players fat and wealthy as a result. There is money to be made and position to be acquired. One way to make sure to find the cash in-pocket and reserve that spot is to conveniently kill off the competition. But since everyone is guilty and innocent at the same time, who has the motivation to do it? You'll never guess, but you'll enjoy the story even more when you do. Although I fail to understand how the title of the book became attached to this story, dear reader is forewarned of a thrilling ride. This is a well-planned novel with electric characters. It is certainly well-paced so that its audience finds no dull spots to endure.
