I only listen to books once, butI do recommend it
The continual build up of suspense
As always Luca is the man
Don't miss this one
I loved this story. I had been "jonesing" for another Lucas Davenport series release and this was well worth the wait.
Three different challenges with the focus on the disappearance of $20 million and the heinous deaths involved.
The twists and turns of the story were surprising but very believable.
Even with these horrible things happening, the humor that Mr. Sanford can insert into the story shows his skill in understanding human nature.
Richard Ferrone is a wonderful narrator and does justice to the wonderful storytelling of John Sanford.
I am hoping that the Lucas Davenport series continues.
Each character was well developed. In the triangle of the BCA, the thieves, and the killers, I was drawn in by the story of their lives. The naivety of the thieves was their downfall.
Loved the last line of the story. That's all I'm gonna say. The most intense part of the story was Letty's role in the end of the line for the killers.
I did not care for Ferrone's narration. His differentiation consisted of nasal whining for other adults, or higher pitched whining for women. I listened in spite of him, not because of him. Would rather read the next Sanford novel than listen to him again.
Self-admitted lazy reader who delights in listening to audiobooks!
I have been a fan of this series by Sanford from the beginning. The story he has woven here is one of his best. Unlike many authors who have created a long lasting series, Sanford hasn't lost his passion for these characters.
I seriously doubt it. I felt like he was reading this book for a film noir performance of some 1940's hard boiled detective tale. It just didn't fit. It was a struggle for me to overcome my annoyance with the narrator to actually focus on the story
This was a great listen from start to finish. Lucas Davenport and the BCA are back, as are Weather, Lucie and the younger children, Sam and Gabrielle. Lots of action and an excellent performance by Richard Ferrone. Highly recommended.
The reason you read Sandford - great characters, great story, great pace. A great addition to your summer reading.
It was a very exciting story, very intricate and up to date. The technology aspect was very good.
It's a very current story.
Good story, good narration and very current. Made my trip of 500 miles very enjoyable.
The only reason I gave this one star is because I couldn't go any to the next line. This is without a doubt the totally waste of a credit..nothing was interesting, and the narrator was even distateful. Don't waste a credit
...because I have not finished the book yet. I'm simply wondering: what the heck happened to the Richard Ferrone that I've grown to love with all the other Sandford books??? He almost sounds like he's trying to copy Scott Brick's (worst narrator here) constant sarcastic tone of voice. He almost sounds like a different person. But, there's enough of himself in there for me to at least try to finish the book.
This may appear again now and then.
Dear God: Please let this man write another book soon and please let me be here to listen to it. I can't say something like 'even his worst book is good' because I can't think of anything he's done that is worse than anything else.
Before I post this list I have to say that Sandford, Parker and MacDonald are EXTRA special. And Richard Ferrone as John Sandford's voice is an amazing match. Like George Guidall with Craig Johnson and pretty much anything George reads.
Robert B. Parker lived in this space for me as did John D. MacDonald. Currently, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, John Hart, Craig Johnson, John Lescroart, William Kent Krueger Ridley Pearson ,and Jonathan Kellerman. Some others are really good but these guys have something special. If you are into mystery-thrillers I just gave you a back catalog I wish I could have...but I HAVE had it and it is an incredible treasure. I stopped going to libraries and swap places just so I can encourage these guys by sending them money. Please enjoy.
P.S. Adding Brian Freeman.
