Certain Prey | [John Sandford]

Certain Prey

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

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.

    "My Favorite"
    Where does Certain Prey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book so far has be my favorite out of the series. I never seen the ending coming and when I did, WOW what an ending.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was very good. Everytime I thought I have it figured out it changed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I have the time I would have listened to this one all at one time.

    "One of my favorites"

    I am a huge Lucas Davenport fan. This is one of the best in the series. Clara is an interesting "bad girl". Her character is well developed and a great addition to the series. As always Richard Ferrone is spot-on with his performance. Mortal Prey is a must listen after Certain Prey.

    "Bad Girls....very good story"
    Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is unique for thrillers...good choice from Stanford.


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

    When Clara did not want to kill that little girl...I cried!!!
