Publisher's Summary

Her name is Clara Rinker, a southern woman, trim, pleasant, attractive, and the best hit woman in the business. She isn't showy; she just goes quietly about her business, collects her money, and goes home.

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.

    "Loved every minute"

    What a great book. Wild ride with crazy people and Oh, do I love the narrator. Richard Ferrone does a perfect job. He's so good I'd feel cheated if I had to read one of these instead of listening to him read it.

    "Meet Clara Rinker"

    I love John Sandford's Prey books, especially the narrated versions because Richard Ferrone is awesome.
    One of the reasons I like this book because it introduces Clara, a complex and memorable character. The part about the story I don't care for is the woman who hired Clara. She was a real piece of work. She changed her mind all the time and I was disappointed that Clara went with her crazy ideas so often. Other than that, this is another case where Lucas Davenport goes after the killer with a vengeance. His stubbornness is classic in this book: he suspected the source of all this killing before others saw it. Worthy addition to the Prey series.

    "Davenport and Ferrone make for a delicious listen"

    Do not read this book. Listen to it. Richard Ferrone is brilliant and turns the book into a performance.

    "The very best"

    Of all 24 novels this was the first one I read before I chose to read rules of prey. I loved this one as a stand alone book in the series I believe the whole series is worth a listen if you want a real hero type detective

    "The John Sandford series has been a reviving one."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Certain Prey to be better than the print version?

    I think that one of the things I enjoy the most when reading this series is the narrator he brings the books to life. Great job.

    "My all time favorite Davenport book!"

    The bad girls in this book make it the best Davenport book. To be honest, I disliked Davenport and all the cops the most in this book. They played dirty in a way I have never seen. I read this series years ago and now I'm listening to the entire series again. Even this time around I still loved Clara Rinker and even crazy Carmel Loan.
