Stolen Prey

"Idleness like kisses, to be sweet, must be stolen."

An entire family is tortured and killed. The killers leave a sign on the wall, "were coming." with no apostrophe.

Lucas Davenport is on the case and the brutality and ungrammatical sign leads him to think of some of the retribution killings by Mexican drug gangs. He wants to find what the family knew that they were tortured for.

The novel follows the killers as they look for their bosses money, the amateur thieves and the police investigation. There is good suspense and excellent character buildup.

I found myself enjoying the story so much that I was disappointed to see it come to an end.
