Night Prey

Night Prey by John Sandford

Lucas Davenport is back with Minneapolis Police Department. This time Koop, a cat burglar turned serial killer is the protagonist. The reader knows from the start who the killer is. The mystery is how he will be caught. Koop is brilliant and stark raving mad.

Meagan Connell, a state investigator wants to arrest Koop before she dies of cancer. She teams up with Davenport and the story is shown from both sides of good vs evil.

Davenport's love interest is the lovely doctor Weather but he is tempted by Connell.

A decent read. I have found lately that all the detectives I am reading about really seem unable to forge a lasting relationship. Is it the job or the author?

First Line: "The night was warm, the twilight inviting: middle-aged couples in pastel shirts, holding hands, strolled the old cracked sidewalks along the Mississippi."
