Is it possible to fall in love with an author/narrator/protagonist combo? Yes, indeed. Sandford, Ferrone and that sometimes naughty Davenport rock the story.
John Sandford used incredibly good judgment choosing Richard Ferrone. Long live authors who "listen" to their own books being read!
I found the book quite good through the first half. But then I became bored and had to stop before I started screaming at the "Lost Boy." Too much redundancy.
The narrator's voice sounds as if he is or could be the Lost Boy.
I would recommend this book to a friend AND an enemy. It's not that super Stephen King scary book I've mostly seen. It's an intelligent police procedural.
Oh, heck, yeah, I was on the edge of my seat, wondering what was just around the corner.
Mr. Mercedes, of course.
Mr. Mercedes is so creepy - but not over-the-top weird.
I loved the adventure and the personalities of EVERY character! A little bit too much bragging at times by Capt. Phillips but he certainly deserves a fan club, of which I'm a member.
Well worth a credit or the highest charge on Audible.
The narrator has an "affected" accent which he mixes with an annoying nasal tone. His voice practically made my skin crawl.
Lucas Davenport, no doubt. And, if you've read the other Prey books: that "....... Flowers."
One of the best PREY books! I truly enjoyed every minute of the 11-plus hours. Winner!
Yes, would enthusiastically recommend. Loved the narrators and recounting of the trial testimony.
The juror who comments, more or less, "THERE IS ALWAYS ONE." Loved the sarcasm.
Thriller, twisted, riveting.
Most of all, I appreciated the narrator. I'm quite narrator "picky," and Petkoff did not disappoint. The marriage of a good story and competent narrator is a beautiful thing.
Spoiler? Oh, I'll never tell!
The writing is somewhat similar to that of Michael Palmer, whose work I admire.
Yes, well spent b/c the subject matter was unlike any I had been previously exposed to.
Dump the caffeine high of the narrator.
A narrator who didn't speed throughout the book. Had to listen on "slow" speed, which distorted the quality and certainly was extremely annoying.
Absolutely not. The main protagonist, the mother of the kidnapped gift, whines and complains that the local police didn't do enough to find her daughter. The mother made the decision that leaving her children alone in a resort villa was okay b/c, after all, she wanted to dine and drink with other vacationers. I was so disgusted by the mother's behavior I couldn't finish the book.
Haven't previously been subjected to this whining, "feel sorry for me" narrator.
WHY the selfish, useless "mother" abandoned her children for a good meal in a restaurant.
What parent would leave sleeping children to dine out? Seriously, why weren't this young girl's parents jailed?
Listening to Three Shots Rang Out was not only a waste of time but painful as I had to bite down on aluminum foil just to the very beginning of this book.
Absolutely not. Aluminum foil on fillings is quite painful.
Only that the book was so crappy I doubted the sincerity of Diane Sawyer's narration, though I otherwise am an avid Sawyer fan.
Just to stop and delete the book and regret the monetary investment.
Darren Reynolds just give up writing and take up dentistry.
