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!
Lucas davenport is my all time favorite characters and Richard ferrone does him so well. I hope and prey that some day they get all the prey books so I can listen to everyone in order. John sandford is at the top with theses books keep up the good work
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.
Vintage Davenport. Been missing the old Lucas in the last couple of books. The relationship with Weather doesn't interest me. She has the personality of a tuna. So the less she is involved the better.
I am not a fan, I have never read any of John Sandford books. This was the first book of his I thought I would try. I'm very disappointed.
This continuous Lucas said, Dell said, over and over, the narrator didn't help matters no personality in this reading to me. Nothing unique or different about the story it was just typical to me. Actually it almost bored me to tears.
I wouldn't recommend it.
Absolutely! Because his characters are so rich. For instance, the cabin by the lake? I could see it, I visualized the neighbors, the garage, the retired policeman's kitchen. I swear, I could smell the stale cigarettes.
Yes, just wanting the creep to be caught.
Well, first he allows me to do my ironing (dusting, dishes, etc.) whilst listening to the story. Second, I appreciate that he does the thinking for me. I mean, I don't have to go back and reread, wondering "what did the author mean by that?"...Mr. Ferrone is spot on with his performance, every time!
Always with Sandford.
Yes, I can't get enough of Virgil ("eff bomb")Flowers...so please don't put him in the book for l/4 of a chapter. I found this book when I searched for him and I get a few lines? Not cool. Lucas is a nice substitute, but I was looking forward to Virgil that day. In addition, regarding Lucas Davenport, I'm a bit tired of the pretentiousness i.e., the Lexus, the fancy clothes, fancy house. I'm just saying.........
I couldn't get past the frist chapter. Sounds like it is written by an adolescent boy who talks trash in an attempt to impress older boys. It is hard to believe John Sandford found a publisher. The narration is a gravelly-voiced monotone. Don't waste a credit on this one.
I'm not sure why it's gotten such great reviews. I didn't find the characters likeable to or the plot the least bit interesting. Just my opinion.
