    Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

    "Not one of Child's best."

    If you’ve listened to books by Lee Child before, how does this one compare?

    I figured out how it was done early on in the book. The clues just couldn't lead any other way. I figured out who the murderer was as well so the book wasn't as tense as his others.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I have become used to Dick Hill's voice and inflections. Jonathan's voice did not match the Reacher I have in my mind so he appeared to be a different person and I didn't enjoy it as much as I usually do.


    Could you see Running Blind being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Liam Nieson as Jack Reacher. He is a little thin, but at least he is tall and an excellent actor.


    Any additional comments?

    I totally enjoy all of Lee Child's books. This may not have been his best, but I enjoyed listening all the same.

    "You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what I don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own.

    Jess Russell says: "Good story, but SO OVER DRAMATIC."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend to my granddaughter and her friends. As an adult I couldn't get through it.

    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 consider the audio edition of Rules of Prey to be better than the print version?

    I don't have much time to sit and read. I just put my phone in my pocket, connect my ear buds, and do my housework, my gardening or my crafts. My work goes by quickly and before I know it, I've completed a project. Occasionally I realize that I have stopped working and am just sitting and listening -- but that is usually during the really scarey parts.


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

    Mr. Ferrone does Davenport perfectly. He also reads the killer exceptionally well.


    Any additional comments?

    This one will get you hooked on Davenport. That tall, rich, smart, womanizing stud who loves being a cop.

    The “Prey” novels by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Sandford consistently make the best-seller lists, but they are not for the faint of heart. Featuring Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, these thrillers are raw, graphic, and impossible to put down. In Eyes of Prey, a depressed and unfocused Davenport takes on a macabre case, tracking down a serial killer who maims the eyes of his victims after he has murdered them.

    If you could sum up Eyes of Prey in three words, what would they be?

    Chilling, Captivating, Intoxicating


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eyes of Prey?

    The book was loaded with memorable moments. The name of "Bekker" will always bring a shudder.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Ferrone is the perfect Davenport! He gives an articulate and stimulating read.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Sandford read. It scared me to death and I loved it! I am working my way through all his books now, but this remains vivid in my mind.
