The first body of a young wonam, found on a Minneapolis riverbank, her throat cut, her body scourged and put on display. Whoever did this, Lucas knows, is pushed by brain chemistry, there is something wrong with him. This isn't a bad love affair. The second body is found three weeks later, in a farmhouse six miles south. Same condition, same display-except this time it is a man. Nothing to link the two victums, nothing to indicate that the killings end here. A suspect emerges early: a man recently released from aprison hospital who now seems to have cut himself free from his court-imposed ankle bracelet and disappeared. But the more Lucas investigates, the more he wonders: Is this really the man? Could he really have done this all by himself? And where has he gone, anyway?

Lucas Davenport #16. Davenport chases a literal madman who seems to have no specific agenda or victim type.

A fun read, well-paced, but Lucas Davenport definitely not as cool as he thinks he is. And LaimA's comment about his taste in music is well-taken: totally crap.

Quite entertaining and a very fast plot. A good read

This was a decent detective thriller, but it was clearly written from an over-the-hill, wannabe cool, old dude perspective. Firstly, character development was sacrificed for action. I don't really know much about Lucas Davenport aside from the fact that he likes crap music which he spends way too much time thinking about and that he describes himself as looking like Jack Nicholson (Ugh. Is that meant to inspire swoons? Jack Nicholson is a gross, ugly, old dude). I found myself wishing that the book were focused on tertiary characters (Millie and Mihovil) instead of the primary and secondary characters. A bit of a fail unless the reader is an old, wannabe cool geezer. There are probably enough of those around to keep John Sandford in crap music.
