Publisher's Summary

Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan. A Russian cop flies in from Moscow, Davenport flies in from Minneapolis, law enforcement and press types swarm the crime scene - and, in the middle of it all, there is another murder. Is there a relationship between the two? What is the Russian cop hiding from Davenport? Is she - yes, it's a woman - a cop at all? Why was the man shot with ... fifty-year-old bullets? Before he can find the answers, Davenport will have to follow a trail back to another place, another time, and battle the shadows he discovers there - shadows that turn out to be both very real and very deadly.

    Story
    "His usual fare + cold war leftovers"

    Worth a read if you don't mind the author's predictably formulaic, always-about-a-twelve-hour-audiobook approach to to crime fiction. I like it fine as everyday background entertainment.

    For me, the narrator can make or break an audiobook experience. Richard Ferrone does his usual excellent job here, with very few distracting word emphasis or pronunciation anomalies. To my ear, Ferrone is one of an elite class of audiobook "performers".

    "Poor Sound Quality"

    The book was pretty good (not one of the best) but the sound was awful, in several places.. There was lots of background noise, which made it difficult to focus on the story.

    "Background noise"

    Story
    "The audio on part 2 is defective"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hidden Prey to be better than the print version?

    The audio in part 2 has an under recording of some other voices or information. This is very distracting and not part of the story or other aspects of the audio.


    How could the performance have been better?

    See note above about the technical recording of part 2.


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

    No, part 2 was VERY hard to hear.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the prey books but felt that this one was extremely substandard in the audio compilation.

    "BEST"

    Lucas davenport. Also the 25 th one I've read. It's devastating not to have another one to listen to. I've listened to one everyday for 25 days.

    Story
    "Hidden Prey (The Prey Series Book 16 ) - Richard Ferrone"
    Would you listen to Hidden Prey again? Why?

    No, only because I'm not really into the subject matter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator, Richard Ferrone is wonderful as Lucas and he makes you feel you are right there with the other characters, (he does them so well!)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    At the end when the girl started a new life.Good for her!


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

    When Carl found out about Burt .


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, I read it in one night! If you want a narrator that matches the character perfectly GET THIS BOOK!!! It's very important that you read this series in chronological order.You won't be disappointed. John Sandford wrote 23 of the Prey Series and I have yet to be disappointed, and what is really great is Richard Ferrone (if you end up liking him ) narrates all of his books which keeps it consistent.I hope you enjoy this series like I have. I immersion read and I'm on book 17. I love him!

    "Two books in one"

    The story was superb, but the audio recording was terrible. I could always great another book being read in the background.

    "Very enjoyable"

    From about chapter 18 on their was talking in the background, it was a little irritating, lost the story line trying to make out the background voice. Tried 2 different wired headsets and a Bluetooth headset and the background noise was still there.
