Penguin Putnam
In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random-if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to . . . certainly nothing he ever expected. Which is too bad, because the killers-and, yes, there is more than one of them-the killers are expecting him. Brilliantly suspenseful, filled with rich characterization and exciting drama, Invisible Prey is further proof that Sandford is in a class of his own.

In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a metal pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as he looks more closely, Davenport begins to wonder if the items are actually so small or the victims so random, if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to ... certainly nothing he ever expected. Which is too bad, because by this time the killers - and yes, there are more than one of them - the killers are expecting him.

I think this is the one Davenport book by Sandford which comes closest to being a mystery [not a certified one, but in comparison to the other Sanford books]. Not bad, with a sound ending.

This was a good-only book. Have read much better by Sandford - such as "Mad River" among others.

Agree that it was Sandford' s better thriller with less "leap of faith" lucky breaks in Lucas/Flowers murder investigations. The Rio Grande crossing at the end was a nice touch.

A very Sandford book but unfortunately not one of his best. The good part is that it wasn't one of his worst
