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 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.
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!
I am an entertainer...so I spend a lot of time on the road. I take my audio seriously. I appreciate great writing and outstanding narration.
As mysteries go, this one is fair. The puzzle is gently compelling.
But if you have as high an opinion of John Sandford's work as I do, you'll recognize he's still doing the same stuff he's already done. Nothing new. An inspired plodder. Easy to listen to...but don't expect anything remarkable...because there isn't anything remarkable.
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.
Sandford is back in one of his best Prey books. Lucas is his best character along with Dell and the story is terrific. Please Jiohn keep them coming. Richard Ferrone is perfect as always! A must read if you're a Sandford fan!
I confess to some trepidation when purchasing Sanford or some of my other usually reliable authors...some of these characters need to be retired. I divorced myself from from Lee Child after listening to the awful "61 Hours" and Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch is getting tedious also...these characters have achieved a certain level of competence over time. I get irritated as a result when I know something before the super-sleuth does. Continued listening expecting the books to surprise me because it can't be so simple...was disappointing. This book was refreshing in meshing the early Davenport with the experienced character we have come to know. We get to see things from the perpetrator's point of view and he's not brilliant, just lucky. I get a bit tired of the "super" criminal playing a "deadly cat and mouse game" with whatever new super detective in whatever new thriller.
