A widow comes home to her large house in a wealthy, exclusive suburb to find blood everywhere, no body, and her college-aged daughter missing. She's always known that her daughter ran with a bad bunch. What did she call them? Goths? The police can't find the girl, alive or dead, and when a second Goth is found slashed to death in Minneapolis, the widow truly panics. There's someone she knows, a surgeon named Weather Davenport, whose husband is a big deal with the police, and she implores Weather to get him directly involved. Lucas begins to investigate only reluctantly ? but then when a third Goth is slashed in what is now looking like a "Jack the Ripper" series of killings, he starts working it hard. The clues don't seem to add up, though. And then there's the young Goth who keeps appearing and disappearing: Who is she? Where does she come from and, more important, where does she vanish to? And why does Lucas keep getting the sneaking suspicion that there is something else going on here . . . something very, very bad indeed?

Another good read by John Sandford. I'm working my way down the list of his novels.

Somehow or other, the plot completely changes mid-book, turning everything nonsensical! I'm mystified by some of the other comments (excepting rahmmie's). First Sandford novel I didn't finish.

Sanford does not disappoint. Gripping yarn.

Character development was excellent. Unfortunately the plot was really bad

Lucas Davenport is the main character of John Sanford's Prey novels. They just keep getting better!
