    Scientology, created in 1954 by a prolific sci-fi writer named L. Ron Hubbard, claims to be the world's fastest-growing religion, with millions of members around the world and huge financial holdings. Its celebrity believers keep its profile high, and its teams of "volunteer ministers" offer aid at disaster sites such as Haiti and the World Trade Center. But Scientology is also a notably closed faith, harassing journalists and others through litigation and intimidation, even infiltrating the highest levels of government to further its goals.

    Flowers is only in his late 30's, but he's been around the block a few times, and he doesn't think much can surprise him anymore. He's wrong. It's a hot, humid summer night in Minnesota, and Flowers is in bed with one of his ex-wives (the second one , if you're keeping count ) when the phone rings. It's Lucas Davenport. There's a body in Stillwater, two shots to the head, found near a veterans' memorial. And the victim has a lemon in his mouth.

    What made the experience of listening to Heat Lightning the most enjoyable?

    I listened to it while training for a marathon and it made running so much better because i was distracted by the story line.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it was very unpredictable. Lots of twists and turns.


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

    This one is very good, as is all of his.

    The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times best-selling author. The superstore chain PyeMart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project, though, until someone decides to take matters into his own hands.

    Virgil's always been known for having a somewhat active, er, social life, but he's probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort.

    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.

    Would you listen to Rules of Prey again? Why?

    I like the Virgil Flowers series better, however this was only the first book in the Lucas Davenport series, so there's hope. It was very good but I hope it gets better in the rest of the series. I wouldn't listn to it again but thats only because I don't read books twice, ever.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the character of the killer. He was well developed.


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

    Richard Ferrone does a great job with all the different characters. He does Lucas Davenport the best in this book.
