    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    Im a huge Sandford fan. Mad River doesnt dissapoint. Good story, great characters, keeps your attention. Smooth story with great action and the depth of the characters is what sets his books apart, for me.

    Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan.

    I am partial to the "PREY SERIES", by John Sandford. I have read/listened to them all. They are my favorite. This book is one of many, Sandford books that will not dissapoint, if you like this genre. Well written, and the narrator does a wonderful job. The combination writer, narrator, is the best I have found. Every John Sandford audiobook, is as goodas the last. If you like murder, mystery, suspense, thriller, you will like this series, these books are just plain good, very good. Try one. Start with "Rules of Prey", book one, and work your way down the list. Trust me.

    I enjoyed this book, it pulled me in. I start listening to alot of books, in which I do not finish. I finished this one, although, I didnt like the ending. I would have liked to learn more about the killer. I would have liked to see more of the story through his eyes. I enjoyed the protagonist, and his point of view. As the story, drew to a close, and then ended, I felt unsatisfied. I wanted more of the story. It ended ubruptly, I thought. I would recommend this book, if you like this genre. Murder, mystery, thriller(maybe).

    As raiders and explorers, the Vikings played a decisive role in the formation of Latin Christendom, and particularly of western Europe. Now, in a series of 36 vivid lectures by an honored teacher and classical scholar, you have the opportunity to understand this remarkable race as never before, studying the Vikings not only as warriors, but in all of the other roles in which they were equally extraordinary - merchants, artists, kings, raiders, seafarers, shipbuilders, and creators of a remarkable literature of myths and sagas.

    I liked it. I enjoy history, and with this book, history is what you get. The narration is obviously a bit different, since it is a compilation of lectures. College style. I know this might bore some listeners, but I enjoyed it. It is, what it is, no more, no less, an informative lesson on Norse history, a bit of Norse mythology, and what seems to be a true account, and a timeline, of the Scandinavian people, and their culture, their customs, and their history. If you enjoy history, and nonfiction, I think you should give it a shot. Especially if your of Norwegian heritage.

    The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    Story

    The first in a series of over 20 Lucas Davenport books. I didnt start with this one, and you don't have to start with this one, they are very well written, well developed, loveable characters, one can really relate to. I have read/listened to all of John Sandfords books, and I truly love them all. I do. In 'Rules of Prey', we get to know Lucas, a Minneapolis detective who discovers his love and talent for hunting murderers. A narcotics/robbery cop, with a net of people on the streets, uses his connections to hunt down the Mad Dog. Sandford does a great job with all of his books, this one especially since it is his first in a wonderful series. If you enjoy this type of book, this genre, you'll enjoy this series. I live only 100 miles from Minneapolis, in WIsconsin, and all of the stories are basically based in Minneapolis, a couple of the stories wander into northern Wisconsin and northern Minnesota. If you are from any of these places, you will find that Sandfords descriptions of these towns and cities, are fully accurate, and you will really enjoy the familiarity.
    I really love this series of books. I would tell anyone who would listen, to get one try it out, maybe you will like it as I do, maybe not, but its worth one listen, I think.

    Very early one morning, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he’s waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, "Hey, I think he’s breathing." And another voice says, "Yeah? Give me the bat." And that’s the last thing he knows. Davenport is investigating another case when the trail leads to the man’s disappearance, then - very troublingly - to the Minneapolis police department, then - most troublingly of all - to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons.

    Story

    A very good book, per usual. I am a huge John Sandford fan, and every six months I literally can't wait until his next book arrives. The Prey Series is my favorite Sandford series. I used to read them all, now I listen to them. I expect so much from them, I want them to live up to my expectations, and 'Silken Prey' does exactly that. It has a very good story, with well developed characters, one in particular, that everyone can relate to and unilaterally despise. Along with the regular cast of characters, which do not disappoint, EVER. I really wish I was just now, discovering the 'Prey Series' and could listen to them, just now, for the very first time. If that is you, DO IT!!! NOW!!! Don't wait, start now.
    This book.is classic, Sandford, with classic and typical Sandford elements. Suspense, mystery, brutality, a little gore, some nasty people, some great people, some surprises, the usual charm and humor, and most important of all, a story line that is really, second to none.
    So if you are on the fence whether or not to buy and listen or you are just looking for a good book lo listen to, just buy it. You can thank me after you listen. Or, a better idea, go get 'Rules of Prey', and listen to it, then go and get 'Shadow Prey', and listen to it, then go get, 'Eyes of Prey', listen to it, and then go and get 'Silent Prey'.......And like I said before, you can thank me after. And, Your Welcome. : -)
