Sanford is the pen name of a Pulitzer prize winning writer, John Camp, from the Twin Cities. This is book three is a series about Minneapolis detective Lucas Davenport, but the first I have read. The writing is good, fast paced and sharp. I also enjoyed the descriptions of the familiar local of my home town. The story was a bit unsettling. It deals with a pathologist at a U of M hospital who is a psychotic drug head who is fascinated by watching people die. He murders some of them, but feels he needs to cut out their eyes so they can't continue to see him. This makes the story unsettling and detracted from what I thought was one of the better police procedurals. I think I will try him again, but if all the books are ugly....well.... I'm out.
