I've read the ten before this and usually can't put them down. I'll usually read them over two evenings. This took me several days to get through, I had to go back and re-read whole pages because I lost interest so frequently. (less)

Minnesota native Sharon Olson has blossomed into supermodel Alie'e Maison, and she now returns to Minneapolis for a very sexy photo shoot. Following a hard day's work, she spends a hard night partying at the home of a wealthy socialite. Alie'e shoots a little heroin, enjoys some playful sex with two other women, and then suddenly turns up choked to death. When the cops arrive, they discover yet another woman who has been killed and stuffed into a closet. Things are going to get very dicey in a b ...more
A supermodel is found strangled at a wild house party and her death is guaranteed to create media frenzy. There are also two other factors complicating Lucas Davenport’s investigation. The first is that a another body is found in a closet at the house, and the second is that one of his cops, an undercover narcotics officer, was also at the party. Lucas will have to put a little overtime in on this one.

With a house full of drugged up fashion industry people there when the model was killed, Davenp

Alie'e (Ah-lee-ah) is a young up and coming model. The new hottest thing in the fashion industry. When she is found murdered at an after shoot party, it is sure to become a media frenzy. Deputy Chief Lucas Davenport is called in to help control the situation and hopefully wrap it up quickly. When a second body falls out of a closet Lucas knows this is not going to happen. It doesn't take long to figure out that drugs play a role in both deaths. Lots of bodies are found over the course of the inv ...more

Eleventh in the Lucas Davenport thriller series and revolving around a cop who will do what he must to get the right bad guy. This is set in Minnesota.

My Take
It's plain old police work on this, but Sandford spiffs it up with all the oddities: the drugs, the relationships between all the partiers, Lucas' relationships with new and old girlfriends, and all the manipulating they had to do to keep the press off their backs. Sandford certainly pulled me in easy with this beginning, and it turned out

I love this series, and I love Davenport--- but, for me , this book just didn't measure up to the first 10- can't love them all - but still not sad that I read it-- on to book number 12 !!

Kind of a disappointing letdown with author John Sandford's eleventh Lucas Davenport series book, "Easy Prey". After the previous two books in this series being extremely solid thrillers this one falls short. The plot itself kept confusing me. With the large number of characters in this yarn it's was sometimes difficult trying to remember who fits in with who. Also the uniqueness of the character's names didn't make it much easier to follow. Coming in at over 380 really too long pages (Paperback ...more
aPriL does feral sometimes

Picture this: Dragnet starring Sean Connery with Bob Hope's writers punching up the dialogue. The last 100 pages have made John Sandford my number one mystery genre recommendation.

"You ever tried phone sex?" She asked.
"Tried once, but it doesn't work. I feel like a silly jerkoff."
"That's sort of inevitable," she said.
"On the other hand, I'm good at giving it. I wouldn't want to use the word brilliant, but then, I'm a modest kind of guy."
"Really? That's interesting," she said. "I mea

My 2nd time through, and still enjoyable.

Davenport is pulled into the world of high fashion and art. A gorgeous model has been found dead in an upscale neighborhood during a party. Earlier that day, she had done a photo shoot that bordered on soft porn.

The players: her mom and dad, who pushed the small-town girl into her career and rode her coattails vicariously. Her brother, who is a charismatic preacher in the area. The partiers, where recreational drugs ran rampant. Her girlfriend and her boy
Ellen Keim
Not one of my favorites. The cops, including Davonport, had a hard time coming up with a coherent premise for their investigation. There were two many possible motives and too many suspects and not one of them turned out to be right. At the same time Davenport is also bungling his relationships with women. This felt more like a bridge book: it just doesn't stand up well on its own merits.

“Guy goes to the doc, and he says, ‘Doc, you gotta help me. I got this terrible headache. It feels like somebody is pounding a nail through my forehead. Like I got a big pair of pliers squeezing behind my ears. It’s tension from my job. I can’t stop working right now, but the headache’s killing me. You gotta help.’ So the doc says, ‘You know, I do have a cure. Exactly the same thing happened to me—I was working too much, and I got exactly the same headache. Then one night I was performing oral sex on my wife, and her legs were squeezing my head really tight, really hard, and the pressure must have done something, because the headache was a lot better. So I did this every night for two weeks, and at the end of two weeks, the headache was gone.’ And the guy says, ‘I’m desperate, Doc, I’ll try anything.’ The doc said, ‘Well, then, I’ll see you in two weeks.’ So the guy goes away, and two weeks later he comes back for his appointment and he’s the most cheerful guy in the world. And he says, ‘Doc, you’re a miracle worker. I did just what you told me, and the headache’s gone. Vanished. I feel great. I think it’s got to be the pressure, and—by the way, you’ve got a beautiful home.” 4 likes
