Great character, good story, excellent reader. John Sandford is a master - you know that because he makes superb storytelling look/sound so easy.
Classic Lucas Davenport.
Silken Prey harks back to the early books in the Prey series when Davenport was beginning to emerge as a master blender of political 'management' and police procedure. This particular book actually calls to mind the recent Netflix TV series "House of Cards." In a world where unscrupulous-ness is a high art, Lucas seems rather angelic. :-)
He IS Lucas Davenport for me. In fact (maybe I shouldn't say this) I try to avoid other books read by Ferrone so I can preserve this illusion.
Lucas Davenport Is Not Mark Harmon!
Thanks to John (Camp) Sandford for continuing to write this series, in tandem with Virgil Flowers in the fall. I hope you never get bored. And outlive me.
This is one of my 2-3 most favorite novels, period. I was excited to find it on Audible and bought it before I realized it is an old ABRIDGED version read by Richard Thomas. OK with Thomas, not with abridgement. McCammon is one of our great prose stylists - it's a crime to chop it up. I'm sure Audible will get the message and produce a full length reading, after the great response to the new rendition of McCammon's Swan Song.
I stopped listening to this one after 20 minutes. I'll wait for the real thing.
Wil Wheaton does a wonderful job reading The Android's Dream - a dark, cynical, absolutely hilarious novel of interstellar politics and AI love on the servers over at the Church of the Evolved Lamb. More like this, please.
At this point, 6-7,000 pages into the epic series, Diana can take me wherever she wants to go. What's so great about this audio version of Book 7 is that it continues to feature voice actor Davina Porter, who must have performed nearly 300 hours in the Outlander series by now. Porter is magnificent, in part because she's able to create a variety of convincing male (as well as female) voices. This is a rare gift among audio artists. May she and DG live long and continue this partnership.
