    "Too gory for me"
    Would you try another book from John Sandford and/or Richard Ferrone?

    I personally don't like so much blood and gore, so would not choose another Sandford book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Sandford again?

    No


    Was Eyes of Prey worth the listening time?

    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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Doctor, Doctor, whose your friend?"

    This is my second time through the Lucas Davenport series. The evolution of Lucas is fascinating. I don't like his behavior in this story, but I am interested and invested in Lucas enough to empathize with his current struggles. I am rooting for him.

    Mr. Sandford's villains are excellent, no evolution here, they are fully developed in every book, and they embrace their evilness as normal - terrifying.

    Mr Stanford has the excellent ability to tell a different story each time and with the comfort of the same hero you are lulled into a sense of safety, because after all you know Lucas, what could go wrong? HA! Hold on, this is going to be a good one!

    "Becker is Nuts!"

    I was on the edge of my seat during this book. Becker is the nuttiest bad guy ever. Not my favorite story but that's about subject matter, not about the quality of the story.

    Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    "Up all night!"

    Eyes of Prey is one of Sandford's best. The villain is creepier, the story cleverer, and Lucas is smarter than ever. I really enjoy this series for its dark, twisted, and convoluted plot lines. I like the stories even better because the characters are so well developed. And Ferrone is THE voice of Lucas Davenport. Excellent.

    Warning... you too may stay up all night listening.

    "Can't get enough."

    I'm new to this series but I'm definitely hooked. Characters are real. Maybe a "Prey" movie soon. Hell, I'll take a TV show.

    "Very good book but graphic"

    This book will keep you on edge. Sometimes I would cringe- sometimes it made my stomach hurt. This series may be getting too graphic for my taste but the story was good!

    "Worthwhile earlier effort"

    I've read almost all the books in the Prey series and was happy when this earlier effort was made available on Audible. I waited several months after the purchase before listening and had forgotten it was from early in the series when I began the listen. At first I was confused. What happened to Weather? What about his older daughter? Then it came back to me. Lucas seemed a bit more raw, which makes sense. The bad guys in this novel were really bad and reminded me why I like this series so much. The inevitable victory of good over evil is even more satisfying when the evil is high. The occasional bumbling of Sandford's evil characters was pretty much missing here but this didn't detract from the overall effect, although I missed narrator Ferrone's excellent vocal personification in this area. Davenport fans will appreciate this early installment.
