It's when she's hired for a job in Minnesota that things become complicated for her. A defense attorney wants a rival eliminated, and that's fine. But then a witness survives, the attorney starts acting weird, this big cop Davenport gets on her case, and loose ends begin popping up faster than on an unraveling sweater.
Lucas has no idea of the toll the case is about to take on him. For of all the criminals he has hunted during his life, none has been as efficient or as ferociously intelligent as the one who is about to start hunting him, and none has known so well what his weak spots are...and how to penetrate them.
Hear Lucas Davenport on the case in more of John Sandford's Prey novels.

"Vivid and entertaining....With his pleasant and malleable voice, Eric Conger is at ease portraying women, regional intonations, and even (chillingly) the all-too-real screams of a torture victim. His enjoyment of his work shows in the banter between the cops and in the battles Davenport wages with Loan. Perfect pacing and on-target emotions enhance the suspense. Unsettling sound effects of the various weapons make the violence more immediate. Irresistible." (AudioFile)
A wonderful addition to the Prey series. This was the first one I "read" and I was hooked! Richard Ferrone's reading is perfect and the story is a real grabber from the first chapter!
Fiction reader/listener: law enforcement, spy, military, science thriller, disasters.
JS always entertains, this one even more that some others. The police characters seem real (I'm a retired cop). Hard to stop listening once you start.
I recommend that the story itself is really interesting.
Being able to hear both sides was really cool.
Articulate, Tone, and Interesting.
Technical quality needs improvement, and removing the book from the device, and downloading the items from the wishlist sucked.
Exciting; Intriguing; Gripping
Lucas Davenport always keeps me on the edge of my seat. John Sandford himself has said the things Lucas does no
Yes, I have. As always, Mr. Conger's presentation was stellar.
A film has been made with Mark Harmon playing the role of Lucas Davenport. I thought it was very, very good and plan to watch it again.
My tag line would be,
The book itself is a great read. The audio version brings new life to the written word, especially with the narrator, Eric Conger. I highly recommend it.
Certain Prey continued the line of successful Prey novels by John Sanford and the reading perfformance was both interesting and easy to listen to.
This one was a real disappointment after all the other "Prey" novels. Although the reader is good, the plot felt forced and the writing was very low caliber -- resorting to metaphors like "the oranges spilled out of the grocery bag onto the ground -- just like a beautiful day". Yucccck! Hope the next one is back to his old standards.
