    Story

    Henry Cimoli and Spenser have been friends for years, yet the old boxing trainer has never asked the private eye for a favor. Until now. A heavy-handed developer is trying to buy up Henry's condo on Revere Beach and sends thugs to move the process along. Soon Spenser and his apprentice, Zebulon Sixkill, find a trail leading to a mysterious and beautiful woman, a megalomaniacal Las Vegas kingpin, and plans to turn a chunk of land north of Boston into a sprawling casino. Bitter rivals emerge, alliances turn, and the uglier pieces of the Boston political machine look to put an end to Spenser's investigation.

    Amazon Customer says: "Again Spenser!"
    "Ace aces Robert Parker's Spenser."

    It is like listening to a Spenser novel written by Robert Parker...very entertaining.

    Joe is Spenser and I regard him as the best voice of Spenser ever.

    I was laughing throughout.

    Story
    (1049)

    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"
    "The gang's all together again!"

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

    Yes. If you like the Prey series, this is one of the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The incorporation of all of Sandford's characters...from Davenport and the BCS gang to Kidd, who we haven't heard from in a while.


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

    Richard Ferrone is Lucas Davenport...I couldn't imagine any other voice as Lucas.


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

    When Lucas figured out that Kidd and Lauren were involved and let them know that he knew.


    Any additional comments?

    Great writing and performance by Richard Ferrone. Could be my favorite Prey book.
