John Sandford (John Camp), Chosen Prey

Been trying to get my reading in, but events have conspired against me. Just now finished 383 pages of John Sandford's novel Chosen Prey. It's a crim fiction novel. Basic plot is: guys starts killing women, Lucas Davenport tracks him down. Not much else to say about it. Good bubblegum mystery. Still like the fact that Lucas Davenport is not a bumbler, nor does much of the story depend on coincidence. Though I really disliked the portrayal of the murderer as a sexual freak who literally gets off on killing women and can't really control his urges. I think that caricature has been overused just a bit too much.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
