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.

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.
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.

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.
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!

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.
This narrator is awesome. No question when he changes characters.
Yes. It's very exciting from start to finish. Stayed on the edge of my seat from one victim to the next.
This is the second book I have listened to narrated by Ferrone. I truly become a bigger fan with every paragraph.
The combination of good storyline, believable main character and realistic narration make this series irresistible.
I plan to continue the series. Ferrone is a very good reader.
Ending was pretty good and a little bit better than i expected
There were times that i almost stopped listening because i had figured out most of the plot but kept listening. Glad i did.
