Second time through Lucas Davenport stories, obviously I like them a lot. Recommend following in series sequence, although not a strict requirement. I could probably listen to Richard Ferrone counting to 100 and like it. Even so, I am surprised I like Lucas and over look his two timing womanizing ways, and his violence. The credit goes to John Sandford's talent in convincing me to care about Lucas. In addition, Mr. Standord's descriptive ability to thread language together is musical to my listening ears. I can't wait for the next tale!
The audio book performance would have been better if the narrator would have learned how to pronounce the local reference names correctly.
It's disappointing that the Author is anti-gun.
loves to read
I enjoyed this book and it was a well put together thriller. I think the subsequent Prey books are a little better but this was great
I can't understand who would like this. The book is juvenile with unlikable characters.
There is nothing redeemable about the main character. Selfish in a way only a toddler could be. In every situation he would be fired for his actions, yet he is never even disciplined. I know it's fiction, but some element of realistic procedure or character interaction would be helpful. There is nothing believable or likable about Lucas Davenport. Poor character development. I really disliked this book, it was a tough listen. I kept waiting for a pay off and was disappointed over and over again. I can't understand how this series is so popular
The snapping and saliva sounds emminating from the performer's mouth were very off putting. That aside, the performance was average at best
I would throw the entire book in the trash along with all the characters. Aweful story and characters
I really didn't care much for the story and I did find it hard to keep listening to the narrator. After awhile his tone got on my nerves. I wanted to start the series but I'm afraid it will be a long time listening with Mr Ferrone.
Sanford builds great stories with great characters and Richard Ferrone is a masterful reader. This is the only series of this length that I have listen to all the way through and I've listen to each book at least two times.
This genre has a hero, the cop who you want to believe in, whom you want to succeed. If the "hero" is a scumbag, it's hard to enjoy the book. This "hero," in the next volume, attempts to convince a married woman to cheat on her perfectly innocent and believably loyal husband. When she resists multiple times, he keeps at it. I personally don't find that to be a great character trait and it basically killed any affinity I would have for the "hero" or the story. I will not be purchasing Any subsequent books in this series.
I bought two on sale. I will listen to the other. I had no problem getting through it. The characters were likable. It isn't a book I will listen to more than once. The journey was more interesting than the some of the book.
The characters were good, but not developed enough. Their lightly dusted over.
He has a nice voice, deep and raspy. His voice has an ironic nature. He didn't do women very well.
I wouldn't seek it out. Jeanine Frost, Dianne Duvall, Deborah Harkness are authors book's I would go to see if there were a movie.
I think many mystery lovers will like this book. I like more action, banter, romance, complex characters and a supernatural element would be a bonus.
I went into this series hoping to find a good crime, murder mystery series. I was absolutely not disappointed. The conclusion although obvious left me very fulfilled. Worth your credit and I absolutely getting the next installment.
