In Sandford's (Silken Prey) amazing and fresh series entry, a teenager accidentally uncovers a psychotic serial rapist/killer's body-dump site, leading to a statewide multiagency manhunt. When Lucas Davenport gets involved after a fellow detective's murder, the action goes into high gear. The rural parts of Minnesota are described vividly, and the landscape becomes almost another character. In this well-written, fast-paced, and realistic novel, the characters are detailed, some unexpected humor is present, and the adrenaline is almost tangible. The award-winning narration by Richard Ferrone is excellent, as always.
VERDICT Highly recommended.
