Lucas Davenport is the protagonist of the "Prey" series of detective novels written by John Sandford. In the first 13 novels he is a maverick detective with the Minneapolis Police Department, first as a lieutenant removed from supervising the robbery section, then after resigning at the end of Eyes of Prey, returning in Night Prey as a deputy chief (a political appointment). Beginning with Naked Prey, Davenport has been an investigator for the Minnesota Department of Public Safety's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, acting as a special troubleshooter for the governor of Minnesota in politically-sensitive cases. He is known for his unorthodox and manipulative behavior as a detective, reminiscent of "Dirty Harry" Callahan.
Oh man oh man. Unorthodox? Manipulative? Maybe this Lucas Davenport figure isn't as probably awesome as we assumed. He...he might actually be in league with the...THE LIZARD PEOPLE! He was in a book called Eyes of Prey. Lizard People HAVE eyes of prey. Uh...it also says he was born and raised Catholic, and they, just like the Lizard People, drink blood. Sort of. Let's just say this mystery got a whole lot more complicated. Complicated like trying to figure out how to salvage a bowl of punch that has been defecated in.
No response yet on the many facebook friend requests that have been sent out, but we're staying on the case, no matter how strange it gets. But if it comes out that Philip Marlowe voted for Big Foot, this blog will explode.
