    John Sandford's best-selling Lucas Davenport series continues with the fast-paced, compelling thriller, Night Prey. A series of deaths leads to the possibility of a brutal serial killer of unusual skill and savagery. And if Lucas is right, the killer is just getting warmed up....

    If you could sum up Night Prey in three words, what would they be?

    I have listened to ten of his books and all are good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Prey?

    John Sanford knows the world of cops and crime with a twist of romance. Great stuff.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    I can't imagine anyone else reading the book. He becomes the charactors.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    nada


    Any additional comments?

    I read all of JA Jance's books and figured I would never find a comparable author. I did in John Sanford.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    What did you love best about The Gray Man?

    One guy against an army, you will love this. The Gray Man never gets fair odds.Always there is a team to kill him and he, by skill and Mcgiver, wins the day.


    What other book might you compare The Gray Man to and why?

    The Man Called Noon by Louis L Amour. Last of the Bread by Louis L amour. Masculine, great fights, straight up plot with how to get there a deffinite unknown.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The guy is perfect for this book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Well, they already made a movie called the Glimmer Man. If you see him, you are aready bleading out. So, the grey man is a high tech, against all odds, good guy hit man.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought other Greaney audio books. They are all superb.

    In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You're about to get a visitor. It's an Israeli cop, and she's tailing a man who's smuggled out an extraordinary relic - a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon. Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses? He looks at the cop. She's not laughing.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, you never get bored. All the twists and turns and romance on the side and international
    intrigue and human nature make it a great book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Always Virgil Flowers, though "Ma" was a standout for more than one reason.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When hmmmm, I don't want to give it away but there is a great deception than the novel is based on.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I have my life to live, but it never gets boring and I look forward to hearing about the next exploits in the book from foreign agents to local cops.


    Any additional comments?

    John Sanford is a great read or listen. Any book is good. I have listened to them all from Virgil Flowers, cop, to Lucas Davenport Detective.

    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.

    John Norton says: "Still my favorite combo of author and reader"

    Where does Silken Prey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Sanford's' grasp on politics and police life is the best. I have all of his books. The only negative thing I can say is I detest Weather, Lucas Davenports' pushy, feminist wife.
    She is not present in this book so much.

    The stories this man weaves and how things work are amazing. His early books and this book are the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How criminal politics can get.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Always Lucas. Then, that F----- Flowers.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, loved the story, glad that Weather is not ruining it for anyone who doesn't swoon over pushy feminist thought.


    Any additional comments?

    He is a superb author.

    In Eyes of Prey, Bekker, an insane pathologist who experiments with his patients’ pain thresholds, is finally brought down by an unrelenting Lucas Davenport, who brutally maims the doctor’s beautiful face but leaves him alive. “You should have killed me,” were Bekker’s parting and prophetic words.

    In this sequel to Eyes of Prey, Bekker endures the indignities and horrors of imprisonment, taking comfort in the fact that it is only a matter of time before he will make Lucas Davenport pay.
