New York City Morgue

22411Invisible Prey†by John Sandford
My Rating: 4/5 Stars

I love ďThat Fuckiní Flowers.Ē He may not be the main show or even a Romeo, but heís one hilarious bastard. He may need to spend a bit more time at the range, and thereís the distinct possibility heís more interested in writing and fly fishing than he is detective work, but that just makes him memorable and interesting.

The usual suspects populate INVISIBLE PREY, so if youíre familiar with Lucas Davenport and Weather and Kidd, youíll feel right at home. But if this is your first rodeo, then I should probably ask you ďWhere the hell have you been for the past 25 years?Ē By my calculations there are 24 Davenport novels and 8 Flowers novels, plus you have the Kidd novels, and yeah, Iím probably missing a few along with some screws.

The pace jerked me more than a socket wrench; the bodies stacked up faster than a New York City morgue; there were antiques and robberies and a few dichotomies; and smack dab in the middle stood Lucas Davenport in all of his infinite glory. Was it the best Prey novel Iíve ever read? Itís really hard to say, because Iíve read them in spurts and squirts, but itís a damn good read if youíre into that sort of thing.
