I have read all the Davenport books and continue to enjoy them. Davenport and his group aren't really realistic as they operate outside any organized law enforcement group and don't really report to anyone but they provide a good story. Hope Sandford keeps writing and I will keep reading.
Typical great Davenport story. I like the way John Sandford brought the past and present together. Bring on more Davenport!
I loved this book I could not stop listening to it this is the first book I have read or listened to by John Stanford I am going to go back and listen to some of his other works.
Excellent, as always! I love Lucas Davenport! et al...
Enjoying the Virgil Flowers series as well..."that f--king Flowers..."
While I listened to the entire book and found it entertaining, it was a straight-up old-fashioned detective story. No twists, surprises. And it was predictable.
I guess my taste in novels has changed greatly from detective "whodunnits" to the deeper international intrigue / espionage / "action" stories. I won't be getting another John Sandford (for at least the immediate future.) Plot was very predictable. The first half of the book was s l o w. On a positive note, the reader does an excellent "read." The ending was however, somewhat of a surprise. Again, my taste in books has changed, so I can't totally fault the author. This is a typical detective whodunnit and if this is what you enjoy, then "go for it."
I loved this book. John Sandford never disappoints this listener and this book was icing on the Sandford cake. Richard Ferrone is a great narrator and his voice just adds to the story. Loved it. Keep 'em coming.
I love all the Prey books and will continue to read them as long as Sanford writes them. I liked the way he went back to the past but something about this book fell short for me perhaps it was the narrator. I think he took away from the story and I truly hated the way he did the female voices made them all sound like idiots. Anyway bottom line is it is still a Lucas Davenport book and who isn't going to read it? Now I want a new Virgil Flowers book!
I have had a library card wherever I've lived, & always have a book in progress. Fell in love with Audiobooks when my 70 yr old eyes couldn't keep up with my reading. Mysteries are my favorite, but last enjoyable read was "Fifty Shades of Grey" WOW Sensual reading, but it had my interest ! I'm not dead yet!
Exciting & fast-paced as Lucas looks back at the case that started his career as a detective. He is edgy & determined to find the culprit he knew was out there all these years, especially working with his old buddies from the squad. Lots of twists & turns in the plot. Loved it.
Im a machinist. Listening to audiobooks at work get me thru my day. I listen mostly to mysteries but also like sci-fi and spy thrillers
This was the best Prey book in the last couple of years but it was also one of the most anti-climatic. There was a lot of building to the final show down and it just went flat. The story was great and kept me interested the whole way just will it hadn't ended so abruptly. It was a worthy disstraction while I impatiently wait for the next Dresden book. I guess every book can't end like Changes but I wish they could.
