The dark mirror of Davenport’s soul… SILENT PREY Dr. Mike Bekker, a psychotic pathologist, is back on the streets, doing what he does best—murdering one helpless victim after another. Lucas Davenport should have killed Bekker when he had the chance. Now he has a second chance… WINTER PREY Lucas Davenport had tracked killers in cities across America.

The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from the number one New York Times-bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford. 'He knows where the bodies are buried.'

When a county deputy is called out to an abandoned farmhouse in the cornfields of Minnesota by a couple of terrified teenagers, he finds that a body has been stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another. By the time Lucas Davenport is called in, the police are up to fifteen bodies, and counting. And when Lucas begins to investigate, he makes some disturbing discoveries of his own. The victims have been killed over a great many years, one every summer, regular as clockwork. How could this have happened without anybody noticing? Because one thing was for sure: The killer has to live close by. He is probably even someone they see every day...

Genre: Fiction

In this short story from the thrilling anthology FaceOff, bestselling authors Jeffery Deaver and John Sandford—along with their popular series characters Lincoln Rhyme and Lucas Davenport—team up for the first time ever. The last time Lucas Davenport traveled from his home in Minnesota to New York City, it was to help his friend, NYPD detective Lily Rothenburg, catch a serial killer who was terrorizing the streets of Manhattan. So it’s no surprise that Lily would ask him back to consult on another difficult case—this time, one she can’t trust to her fellow NYC cops. Teaming up with New York’s finest forensic mind, the irascible and brilliant Lincoln Rhyme, and Lincoln’s partner Amelia Sachs, they set out to investigate the deaths of four young women, all illegal Mexicans, all of whom seem to be connected to the drug trade. The problem is: the killings may not be cartel hits—they may be carried out by corrupt cops looking to get information, and then silence the source. Or, as the veteran investigators will soon discover, they could be dealing with a very different kind of killer—and to draw him out, Lily and Amelia will have to pose as bait. For more exciting pairs, check out all eleven short stories in FaceOff!

Genre: Fiction

Unfassbare Verbrechen durchdringen die Mauern der Gefängnispsychiatrie »KALTES FIEBER« FÄNGT DA AN, WO ALBTRÄUME AUFHÖREN ... Die erste Leiche wird an einem einsamen Ufer in Minneapolis gefunden. Der Körper der jungen Frau wurde mit einer Peitsche gegeißelt. Drei Wochen später taucht auf einer Farm ein zweiter Leichnam auf. Wieder handelt es sich um eine besonders grausame Tat, denn der Tote wurde verstümmelt. Der Mörder muss schnell ausfindig gemacht werden, nicht nur, um weitere Opfer zu vermeiden. Der Gouverneur von Minnesota fürchtet vielmehr eine Panik unter den Menschen, die auch politische Konsequenzen für ihn haben könnte. Deshalb übergibt er den Fall Detective Lucas Davenport, dem Chef der Abteilung für Öffentliche Sicherheit bei der Staatspolizei. Schon bald gibt es einen Verdächtigen: Charlie Pope, ein Sexualverbrecher, der vor kurzem aus der Psychiatrie des Gefängniskrankenhauses St. John‘s entlassen wurde. Aber Charlie Pope hat noch nie einen Menschen getötet, er verbüßte seine Haftstrafe wegen Vergewaltigung. Außerdem zeugt die Planung und Durchführung der Morde von einer hohen Intelligenz des Täters – eine Intelligenz, über die der eher minderbemittelte Pope nicht verfügt. Davenport vermutet, dass Pope im Auftrag anderer gehandelt hat, also nur ein Handlanger war. Und diese anderen können nur die »Drei Großen« sein, drei Hannibal-Lecter-artige Killer, die in St. John’s unter schärfsten Sicherheitsvorkehrungen einsitzen und von denen jeder glaubte, dass sie hier kein Unheil mehr anrichten können ... »Dieser Killer ...«, sagte Lucas, atmete tief ein und ließ die Luft als Seufzer wieder aus der Kehle entweichen. »Dieser Killer wird uns noch die Hölle heiß machen.«
