Title: Mind Prey
Author: John Sandford
Series: Lucas Davenport #07
“Run for it.” It was raining when psychiatrist Andi Manette left the parent-teacher conference with her two young daughters, and she was distracted. She barely noticed the red van parked near her, barely noticed the van door slide open as they dashed to the car. The last thing she did notice was the hand reaching out for her and the voice from out of the past – and then the three of them were gone. Hours later, Deputy Chief Lucas Davenport stood in the parking lot, a bloody shoe in his hand, the ground stained pink around him, and knew, instinctively, that this would be one of the worst cases he’d ever been on. A man who could steal children . . . With an urgency born of dread, Lucas presses the attack, while in an isolated farmhouse, Andi Manette does the same, summoning all her skills to battle an obsessed captor. She knows the man who has taken her and her daughters, knows there is a chink in his armor, if only she can find it. But for both her and Davenport, time is already running out.
I finished book #13 over lunch. It was Mind Prey, the 7th book in John Sandford’s Prey/Lucas Davenport series.
I’ve read several of these books, and really enjoy them. Davenport is an interesting character. His relations with women are always amusing.
