Book review

Phantom Prey (Lucas Davenport, #18) Phantom Prey by John Sandford



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have a love and hate relationship with John Sanford, the author of this book.

I love crime stories, and this book is first class. I love the way he let the reader in on the plot before the main character detective Lucas Davenport. It makes you cheer Lucas on.

I love the location. I used to live in the same neighborhood during my college years. The book gives me goose bumps when I am recognizing streets, shops and restaurants.

I love his incredible productivity. There is always a new book that I can buy every time I go to the US.

I hate the realistic descriptions of the brutality. It hurts.

I hate his testosterone level.

I hate to be reminded every time I read one of his books. During my college years I hang out with his son, but I lost contact with him after an episode where I did not show my best side.

And remember to not believe everything you see in the mirror! This book has a supernatural twist, which is new to my knowledge of John's books.
