From the Publisher:
After a series of killings that disturbingly emulate the works of a trio of inmates currently being held at the Minnesota Security Hospital, Lucas Davenport investigates a missing man who was released from the hospital weeks earlier. Reprint.
Annotation:
Charlie Pope, a recently released rapist/murderer from St. John's Security Hospital, has removed his electronic surveillance ankle bracelet and disappeared. Meanwhile, a woman and a man have been tortured and murdered in a manner that shares elements with the MOs of the Big Three, three serial killers currently incarcerated at St. John's. Investigator Lucas Davenport and his partner, Detective Sloan, initially finger Charlie as the murderer, but realize that he's not smart enough to have pulled off those crimes by himself. Are the Big Three secretly tutoring Charlie in advanced psychopathic techniques, or is the killer someone else entirely? This is the 16th police procedural in the Prey series.
Author Bio
John Sandford
After serving in the Korean War, John Sandford began his journalism career working in Missouri and Iowa before moving to Florida in 1970. He worked for "The Miami Herald" for eight years before moving again to Minnesota to work for "The Saint Paul Pioneer Press", where he became a popular columnist. In the mid-'80s, during what was then called the "Farm Crisis," Sandford, under his given name John Camp, wrote a five-part series focusing on the hardships of a Minnesota farming family. His reporting won him a Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. Several years later, Sandford published his first novel, "The Fool's Run", followed almost simultaneously by "Rules of Prey", the first novel in his popular Prey series, featuring policeman Lucas Davenport. Often revolving around a disturbing crime or demented criminal, the majority of Sandford's novels are psychological thrillers with tough characters and fast pacing.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A tale so fast-moving you won't even notice the unobtrusively expert detective work till the second time around." 03/15/2005

Publishers Weekly
"For those who thought Davenport (and Sandford) were slowing down and showing signs of age and prosperity, this superlative entry will dispel all such notions. This is tough, unstoppable, white-knuckle fiction." 04/11/2005
