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.

Good books just make me smile!
Easily top 2 or 3. Lucas Davenport, John Corey & Jack Reacher are always 1-2-3!
Edge of my seat ... and standing up! Clever, convoluted plot ... strangers on a train ... and WHO is Loverboy?!
Richard Ferrone IS the voice of Lucas Davenport. I think he must enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy listening.
Lucas hanging on to all he holds dear ... while his guns are calling him from the basement.
This is a tremendous series that everyone should add to their wish lists.
Typical cat lady: lazy, sings off-key, craves spicy bloody marys.
What a fun, scary romp through Lucas Davenport's chase to catch his creepiest arch enemy. Highly recommend!
Chilling, Captivating, Intoxicating
The book was loaded with memorable moments. The name of "Bekker" will always bring a shudder.
Ferrone is the perfect Davenport! He gives an articulate and stimulating read.
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.
I personally love books that just grab you from the 1st moment you pick them up, but unfortunately this book didn't do that to me. It was around the last 3 chapters that I got hooked and couldn't wait to see what happens. I'm going to continue to read this series because I don't like to leave a series unfinished if I can help it, but hopefully the rest of the series is epic :)
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
Most definitely. John Sandford's, Eyes of Prey, is a wonderful listen. The way he writes is awesome. His character's all have their place in his novel's. Look at the blue eye on the cover and you can't resist reading this book. They say the cover of a book tells how good the book will be. I am one to look at the cover and make a judgment about reading a book but I also read the plot and reviews, too. However, ALL of John Sandford's books are excellent, even if the cover isn't to my liking.
The story made me want to keep listening until the end.
The man, Lucas Davenport.
I would get a smirk on my face at times, a little giggle once in awhile. However, I would sit, listen and become quite unglued and wonder how an author could create such evil people. But I buy all of his books and listen very intently. I don't want to be disturbed, either. If I had the time, I would read the book all in one sitting. Purchase every book in the series, there hasn't been one I didn't enjoy.
I have purchased most of John Sandford's books. However, since audible now has complete series, there are a few that I haven't purchased. After writing this review, I am going to purchase the next book for full price. There were a few loose ends that need tied up now and not in 16 days when my credits come due.
I personally don't like so much blood and gore, so would not choose another Sandford book.
Yes, the story line was exciting, just not the details!
Sad, Maddening, dramatic
Lucas is fighting the "Winter Blues" and as the story progresses he starts to heal and get better because of him finding a love interest. But the sad and maddening thing of this story is the loss of this love interest as she becomes one of the murders Davenport has to investigate
Ferrone allows the characters to have their own voices without over doing it. He is able to follow the dramatic twist and turns with his voice over so the listener is never out of touch with the tactile feel of the storyline as it happens. I look forward to continuing this series and hope MR Ferrone continues to narrate this series.
If you enjoy John Sanford then you will enjoy this book and this series.
Only complaint is sometimes Richard said she when it was a he and vice versa. Still love Richard.
Lucas > always interesting.
Yes but I listen while traveling.
The book held my interest the whole way through although I was going to give up at the beginning as it was quite a shocking start but read on folks as it is a GOOD book.
