    "Disappointing for Sandford"

    I love John Sandford's books. I especially like the ones featuring Virgil Flowers but I also enjoy the Lucas Davenport series (especially the ones written in the past 10 - 12 years). The problem with "Easy Prey" is that the plot is all over the place, the murderer isn't really introduced until the last 25 - 50 pages, the motivation is contrived (even for a genre novel) and then there are the WOMEN. One of them is Weather, who, imo, is an attractive character with flaws - in other words, realistic and appealing. Then there is a woman who is intrinsic to the plot and since Weather and Lucas are broken up why shouldn't he have a little fling? But the third woman is just added weight - she's boring and tiresome and I did not for a second buy into the attraction Lucas supposedly has for her. In short, I think there are way better Sandford books available on Audible (I give 5 stars to ALL the Virgil Flowers books) and I recommend choosing one of them and passing on “Easy Prey”.

    "Easy Prey - Not an easy read"

    One (or three) too many potential villains make Easy Prey a difficult read. I love the series and am reading all the books in order. Unfortunately, this one is not up to the level of the rest.

    Read/listen for completeness. Otherwise, skip it. You won't miss it.

    Long haul commuter. Audiobooks keep me from causing serious physical harm to my fellow commuters. Bless you, Audible!

    "Not as bad as all that"

    Strange book, I will say that. The plot is disjointed at times. Some scenes are overtly implausible. There is coarse language and taboo topics. I did get some real laughs and there is a sub-plot with Lucas struggling as a man that may upset some. Not the best Davenport book but a transition to a new Davenport.

    "Yawn"
    Would you try another book from John Sandford and/or Richard Ferrone?

    I've read all his books, I guess no one is perfect. Richard Ferrone can only read what he's given. I listened to this right after Sudden Prey which was out standing. It was quite a let down.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure.


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

    Dell


    What character would you cut from Easy Prey?

    All of them from this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll continue to buy any additional books in the "prey" series. And any others from John Sandford.

    "can't believe this was written by Sandford. . . ."

    Even if you are a hard core John Sandford fan as I am, this book is just about unreadable. Don't know what happened here. Where were Sandford's editor's? What was he thinking? It's painful to write this as there are so many great Davenport books before and after this one. I can't even recommend this to a fan. Will take a listen again in a year or two, but this is the one you hope one of your favorite author never writes. Makes sense that it is the last in the this unabridged series to get issued on audible. On the other hand, one clunker out of 20 plus is an amazing record. This book is only interesting in Weather making an appearance, although just a smidgeon, in Davenport's life again.

    "Easy prey"

    They just get better. Some of the other reviews had me worried. They said to many potential suspects to twisted. I started to not buy this book, I almost skipped over it. I'm sure glad I didn't. Yes there are a lot of suspects and yes it takes a lot of twist and turns but isn't that what a good book is to do? You'll get your money's worth with this one. Enjoy

    "I still enjoyed it"

    I really enjoyed this. The plot was a bit weak but I love the characters so much. Lucas is such a dog and his band of cops crack me up.

    Richard Ferrone as usual did a bang up job narrating. At this point I'd be disappointed if I actually had to read one of these books.

    What would have made Easy Prey better?

    Read Connie Patrick's review; I can't improve it and agree with it 100%. Now I'm writing just to get this review up to 15 words...


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Sandford again?

    Of course
