Long commutes have turned me into a dedicated Audible fan. Looking at my stats I can't believe I have 825 titles in my Library.
Have not yet been bored or disappointed by any of the Lucas Davenport series. Its like returning to old friends and you want to see how their lives have been since the last visit. Great story lines and characters (good guys not the killers!) that you wish really existed and this one is no exception. Richard Ferrone is one of my favorites. Wish he did more.
I liked more than most detective stories, in that it described the investigation in detail, and did not have a lot of "filler" wherein the author goes on and on describing the locale in much more detail than required for the listener to have a good feel for the location - the detective work stays front and center constantly and this is what I came for. My first Lucas Davenport story, but since I really liked the author's style, I shall be trying more.
A terrific book and great narration. I got myself a little confused between the timelines but I am always multi-tasking. Thank you for the book! I recommend it highly.
I have read every Prey novel and consider the Lucas Davenport character to be the best developed and most engaging cop series out there. This story started with a lot of promise but ran out of steam at the end. Really liked the back story information from Davenports early days on the force but once it got back to the present day the story just ended too quickly and predictably. A character from the series does get killed off in this but even that character was not a major one so it wasn't that earth shattering for me.
I still look forward to his next prey novel and really like where he is going with the adpoted daughter Lettie. She has Davenports killer instinct and I can definately see her as another spin off series like Virgil Flowers.
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.
