  • Buried Prey

    Story
    (1086)

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

    Stevon says: "good story"
    "Another good one from Mr. Sandford"

    Story
    Would you listen to Buried Prey again? Why?

    Absolutely! Because his characters are so rich. For instance, the cabin by the lake? I could see it, I visualized the neighbors, the garage, the retired policeman's kitchen. I swear, I could smell the stale cigarettes.


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

    Yes, just wanting the creep to be caught.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well, first he allows me to do my ironing (dusting, dishes, etc.) whilst listening to the story. Second, I appreciate that he does the thinking for me. I mean, I don't have to go back and reread, wondering "what did the author mean by that?"...Mr. Ferrone is spot on with his performance, every time!


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

    Always with Sandford.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I can't get enough of Virgil ("eff bomb")Flowers...so please don't put him in the book for l/4 of a chapter. I found this book when I searched for him and I get a few lines? Not cool. Lucas is a nice substitute, but I was looking forward to Virgil that day. In addition, regarding Lucas Davenport, I'm a bit tired of the pretentiousness i.e., the Lexus, the fancy clothes, fancy house. I'm just saying.........

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By James Lee Burke
    • Narrated By Will Patton

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Gardner says: "Best Yet... Almost"
    "Simply wonderful"
    Overall

    Will Patton you rule! Mr. Burke please,
    "keepem' comin' "! I noticed one person's review complained that Mr. Patton doesn't sound like the real Louisiana. Well, I've been there and frankly if Mr. Patton read the book to us in the "real Louisiana" most of us wouldn't understand it! Thanks to him for realizing this and making the adjustment. I'm a Vietnam Combat wife, it always galls me the way I take a backseat to my husband's combat/veteran's friends. James Lee Burke always finds a way to make me understand this flaw in my marriage, thanks Mon!
