Wonderful Davenport book. Readers (or listeners) get to see the early Davenport and the current one and all the connected characters. Great action and reality and the narrator is top drawer. Preying for more. Can't wait for the next one. Well, that is until I get the next Virgil Flowers story. Love him too.
What a treat to read John Sandford;s book,.This book is one that you will not be able to stop listening because you want to know what is going to happen next. It is an excellent read.
I guess I'm a baby...I just love to be read to.
I like this LD installment because it flashes back to Lucas as a beat cop on the verge of making detective. Don't worry...he's just as cocky and self-assured as a youngster but he keeps it to himself more than present day Davenport.
I am reading the most recent Prey book (and have read all the Virgil Flowers books). John Sanford just writes books that captivate and entertain the reader. Spending time in Davenport's world (despite the sometimes, gruesome murders) is so addicting that I had to pace myself to extend the experience. Alas, with the purchase of the 23rd Prey book, I must now wait a year for Sandford/Ferrone to invite us back to Davenport's Minnesota.
Richard Ferrone is as great. He IS Lucas Davenport, while handling all the other character with aplomb. Despite this, he is not type cast as I have listened to him read books by other authors, and he enables the reader to settle into those worlds with ease.
By the way, the Virgil Flowers series, read by the estimable Eric Conger, is equally as good. Can't believe there are already seven books in that series.
I found this a little slow to get into, but really enjoyed the middle and end of the book. Great balance of character development while keeping the story moving.
I am a lover of history and the fantastic tales of human achievement (or folly). Sometimes, a grand author captures my imagination.
This is another murder/mystery that I enjoyed for its brisk pace and great narration. It’s a wonderful back and forth story of a gruesome child murder, through detective work, and an obvious end result. It is not a page turner, atleast for me, but a good, solidly written book. Recommended for those long flights or drives!
Extremely well written, narrated and produced. I took longer walks and drives to hear more. I've been reading this series for ages. However, the ones of late seemed a bit (I hate to say this but) stale. This book revitalizes the series and gives you back that whole ticking time bomb intensity.
Tell us about yourself!
I loved Wicked Prey! It goes back to the young days of Lucas and shows us the macho, handsome, lady's man he was before he got married!! I love Weather and his kids, but the dynamics of his decisions are very different now. This book was more like the earlier Prey books with the intensity of the young cops and his friends who ended up at the BCA with him. I recommend highly!!!!!
This is my first John Sanford novel and I chose it based on the reviews. However, I was really disappointed. The first half of the book was painfully slow and boring. The suspense finally began towards the very end and was over before I could get hooked.
