    What a fun, scary romp through Lucas Davenport's chase to catch his creepiest arch enemy. Highly recommend!

    Story
    "Lucas Davenport, #1 reason to move to Minnesota!"
    Where does Eyes of Prey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Easily top 2 or 3. Lucas Davenport, John Corey & Jack Reacher are always 1-2-3!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Edge of my seat ... and standing up! Clever, convoluted plot ... strangers on a train ... and WHO is Loverboy?!


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Richard Ferrone IS the voice of Lucas Davenport. I think he must enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy listening.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lucas hanging on to all he holds dear ... while his guns are calling him from the basement.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a tremendous series that everyone should add to their wish lists.

    "One of Sandford's Best"
    If you could sum up Eyes of Prey in three words, what would they be?

    Chilling, Captivating, Intoxicating


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eyes of Prey?

    The book was loaded with memorable moments. The name of "Bekker" will always bring a shudder.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Ferrone is the perfect Davenport! He gives an articulate and stimulating read.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good read"

    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 :)

    "Eyes are all Telling"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story made me want to keep listening until the end.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    The man, Lucas Davenport.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "One of the best"

    The author and narrator combination were very good in this book. This is one of Sanfords best.

    "Fantastic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Im a long time fan of Lucas Davenport and this is his Second or Third book in the series. The First few
    Pages are kinda slow but he is laying a little foundation for what's to come. A few times
    It spends a minute on the characters that will show up in later books.
    This sets a plot and uses a few names you will hear in the next 20 books in the series.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It took a few pages to get completely hooked. Then I had the book in bed, bathroom, listening while driving . I'm really into audio books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where the guy was buried in the woods, the re dug back up again was only one
    Of the best scenes in the book, there were many. Then Lucas gets fired


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No , I try to stretch them out






    Any additional comments?

    I have listened To 2/3 of his books. Please keep righting and don't slow down.
    I'm afraid I will run out of thing to read.
    Write more Virgil Folwers books. I'm on #5 now. Lucas is Virgil's boss
    But Virgil is a laid back country sh*t kicker the does things his way.
    There all smart

    Lucas and Virgil Kinda let you in there shoes, your there with then.

    The penultimate Davenport


    Any additional comments?

    This is the most interesting villain in any of Sandford's novels. I've read them all and this one stands out as exceptional.

    "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.
