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.

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!
I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.
I am a rather avid listener of detective mysteries and have always been a fan of John Sandford. This one has it all, interesting plot, great characters, action packed, weird nemisis. I highly recommend it.
I've only read these authors books through audible and these ones were originally unavailable so it's been good to catch up with where things started and this book worked well for me.
Storyline more weird than interesting, and needs to be a little more plausible. Good ending though...excellent wrap up. Entertaining. Good performance but sounded like it was recorded in somebody's den instead of a sound studio.
Love the series but Lucas' depression and actions don't wear well in this post-Ferguson era. Maybe it rings true as Sanford allows some of the racist and similarly negative cops' view of the world come through.
I wish he had done more with the bad guys and given them a bit more depth.
The story is interesting, but the narrator's over-the-top, film noir inflection is both distracting and annoying. Enough already. I've listened to a few other Sandford books and really liked them. I will pay closer attention to the narrator before I get another one.
