    I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.

    "one of the best yet!"

    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.

    "Narrator is very distracting"

    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.

    "Suspenseful!!"

    I first started listening to the Lucas Davenport series 3 years ago. I got hooked on the alchemy that is John Sandford combined with Richard Ferrone as narrator. Lucas Davenport is older, sexy, and tenacious. Ferrone's narration--I so enjoy this series. Some times a humorous moment, never a dull one.

    Story
    "Dark and fascinating"

    The villan is very insane and on every drug I've never heard of. Lucas is brilliant but chronically depressed. Even though the book is short on humor the basic storyline gets so out of control that it borders on humorus, if evil makes you smile. The reader is outstanding. Sandford is some fantastic story writer.

    Story
    "Surprisingly disappointing....Boring Even!"
    What disappointed you about Eyes of Prey?

    The Lucas Davenport character was portrayed as an immoral borderline dirty cop who made deals with the press for implied sexual favors and slept with as well as discussed case information potential witnesses. He is not the same Davenport I had come to admire in past books.


    What could John Sandford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It could have been more enjoyable if it had read like an intrigue filled mystery thriller instead of a sex starved dishonest cop's pathetic relationship novel. There is more dialogue about Davenports failed and current female love interests then the actual murder mystery, which by the way, isn't a mystery at all since we already know who the killers are. This book lacked excitement and I really wanted to feel that "sitting on the edge of your seat" anticipation.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator was good, but did not seem to have much to work with as far as storyline and characters went. The only thing I felt was off was Davenports voice, it seemed to vary throughout the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eyes of Prey?

    I would limit the Casey/Davenport scenes and heighten the pursuit of the killers.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Sanford has always been one of my favorite authors, however this novel did not live up to his usual high standards. The only reason I listened to the entire book was because I paid for it.

    Story
    "Lucas is depressed..."
    If you could sum up Eyes of Prey in three words, what would they be?

    Sad, Maddening, dramatic


    What did you like best about this story?

    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


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy John Sanford then you will enjoy this book and this series.

    "Excellent book but a bit gory"

    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.
