    "Just as good the second time around"

    This is the second time I've listened to and reviewed Mind Prey. I'll let my first one (created in December 2006) pretty much stand. Audible removed and then added the title back which is why I mistakenly downloaded it a second time. But it was worth another listen. The only difference I noted was the addition of silent pauses in places that didn't make much sense. Probably added a few minutes to the listen. Here's what I had to say five years ago: This is the fifth "Prey" book I've listened to and, so far, I think it's Sandford's best. The author has the talent for creating some pretty evil characters and John Mail is no exception. If profanity and sexual references bother you, then don't listen to this book. But if you can tolerate them as part of the story-telling process, then you must listen to this book. The narration is superb, the story is gripping and you will not want to turn off your iPod. This is one of two "Prey" suspense thrillers recently added to Audible's inventory. My next download will be the other one. Fans of Lucas Davenport will not want to miss "Mind Prey."

    I believe a reviewer should finish a book before submitting a review. What do you think?

    "A Gentler Davenport"

    Davenport and Sloan are on a mission. A young mother and her two daughters are being held by a madman who enjoys playing games with Davenport. The family is wealthy and thus the politics are challenging for the gang at HQ.
    This story was well paced and kept my interest throughout.
    Personally I did not find the violent acts bothersome, because although the rapes were mentioned, the author avoided description. In fact, it seemed to me that this author was extremely conservative in this regard. He avoided going into any detail with the rapes; so for me, I found that acceptable. Understandably others feel differently.
    Overall, I liked this mystery, I would have given it a 3.5 if I could.

    "Either bad editing or bad performance"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This was either an unusual bad performance, or truly bad editing. There were MANY pauses that totally detracted from a good book.

    "One of my favorites"

    This is one of my favorite Prey books. Lucas Davenport is in fine style in this novel, frequently touching the ring he has purchased for Weather and has yet to give her. The villian in this novel, John, is quite believable, as are his fantasies about a former psychiatrist. John gets excited about playing the cat and mouse game with Lucas Davenport, the man who has written many role-playing games. John knows Lucas is a good detective, but since John believes he is invincible, he doesn't see Lucas as a real threat. It's a great story, narrated by one of the best, Richard Ferrone. I used to only have the abridged version of the book, but now I have the unabridged version ... that much the better!

    "Too much rape for me"

    Everything about the book was good with the exception of the continual rape. If that does not a concern you will enjoy the book.

    I'm a retired professor of geography. A few years ago my health deteriorated and I had to give up reading. Audiobooks are my life-saver.

    "Poorly edited"

    The audiobook is badly marred by very poor editing, leaving long silences between paragraphs and even sentences. This is a great detraction from what should have been presented as a fast-paced story.

    "Some of this is hard to listen to"

    As much as I love the Prey series, this is not one of my favorites. If I could give it 3 & 1/2 stars I would.

    The graphic sexual brutality inflicted on Andy Minette, the adult victim, was very hard for me to listen to. I ended up fast-forwarding through much of it. This is not so much a criticism as a heads-up.

    I have read and listened to all the books in the series and am now working my way from beginning to end; so you can see I am a fan.

    I started listening to them at night to help me sleep. Now I listen to them everywhere I go. I love them and tell everyone I know about them

    "OMG"
    Where does Mind Prey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found this series very exciting, I found myself caught up in each book that I have read so far.I can't wait till I buy the next one.


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

    when the found the little Genevieve, I almost cried.


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

    His voice makes the books even more exciting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't it would be the same. Some book are ruined by turning them into movies.


    Any additional comments?

    I love it......

    "Thrilling"

    I really enjoy this series but this one was especially good. The suspense of how it would end, who would die and who would live was done really well.

    I think one of the things I like about Lucas is as much as he's a smart cop he still doesn't have all the answers. He and his cohorts always have to work to get them. Sandford doesn't just pull them out of thin air.

    LoL at Lucas playing with Weather's ring...Lucas can be such a hard case with the bad guys and still be such a pussy cat with Weather.

    As always Mr. Ferrone does a fine job narrating these books. I'm glad to see he's the one doing all of the available titles. Now if audible would just fill in the holes....
