  • Book Rating: 5/5

SPOILER ALERT!!! This was definitely not my first read of John Sandford\'s \"Broken Prey\" and I had forgotten just how good a book this was. I was distracted by the rock-n-roll list. I was distracted by the love-making couple. I thought the Serb was the killer. Where did he fit in? But what about the accent? How could Pope be the killer? The book dragged a bit in the first third, but then it was unstoppable.
