    None of those apply, but I enjoyed the review!

  2. I did a buddy read with a friend of the first 3 books of this series a couple of years ago. We both agreed to end it at book 3, when our stomachs could no longer take it.

      Hm, I think I might consider that confirmation. I don’t blame you at all. The synopsis I peeked at all seem serial killer focused, which is not my cuppa. But I did just discover Robert Crais. 🙂

      • At least the first three we read were serial killer focused. Also, Lucas Davenport gets more and more unlikeable through the entire first three. The third one was nauseating, which is the point at which we quit.

        Eww. It’s nice to have reassurance that abandoning the series is the right choice. Some times return to a time period is interesting, but in other cases–who needs that archaic sexist crap?

  3. Try again. I loathed the first few books, but Lucas changed in character a great deal after those books. Naked Prey is a great one.
