Publisher's Summary

In Naked Prey, John Sandford puts Lucas Davenport through some changes. His old boss, Rose Marie Roux, has moved up to the state level and taken Lucas with her, creating a special troubleshooter job for him for the cases that are too complicated or politically touchy for others to handle. In addition, Lucas is now married and a new father, both of which are fine with him: He doesn't mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay - and he's waiting for the bill.

It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are of a black man and a white woman, and they're naked. "Lynching" is the word that everybody's trying not to say - but, as Lucas begins to discover, in fact the murders are not what they appear to be, and they are not the end of the story. There is worse to come - much, much worse.

Filled with the rich characterization and exceptional drama that are his hallmarks, this is Sandford's most suspenseful novel yet.

    "Love Lucas Davenport"

    I hope this series continues until Lucas and Weather are grandparents. Their children can take up where the parents left off.

    "Meet Letty West!"

    Loved this book. Letty West is one of the best character additions to this great series. She appears in subsequent novels in the series and she is a fabulous character. And this is the book where she makes her debut.

    My husband and I use audio books so we can read the same book at the same time. This way we can discuss and have fun listening together.

    "The Best one!"
    What made the experience of listening to Naked Prey the most enjoyable?

    I have listened to all 24 Davenport books and Virgil Flowers books. This one is hands down the best Stanford book ever.


    What other book might you compare Naked Prey to and why?

    All the other Davenport and Virgil flowers books are great .


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

    Lucan Davenpor, Del and introcused two new wonderful charactors with the BCA.


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

    Yes, the fires at the West house.

    "Another great one"

    Sandford just gets better. Each one of the Prey series is fantastic to me. I love they way they build on each other. Sandford doesn't leave a cliff hanger like the old serials did in the movies but his books sure lead you to wanting to read the next book in the series. Davenport or Mitch Rapp. Maybe they are equal in my mind. Both are dynamite character's. Enjoy.

    "Just can't get enough Sandford!"

    I love Sandford books but recently been hesitant to purchase them thinking that Lucas Davenport is going to get old and boring. Sandford Never Disappoints. this book is excellent even if you read the later books where he already has some characters introduced by the story you'll still love it. I am not going to hesitate in getting a Sanford book in the future and now going through my library to see if there are any I haven't listened to yet.

    Im suprised there isn't a whole slew of movies based on Davenport.

    "Interesting opening; lame finish"

    Years ago, I read some of the early books in the Lucas Davenport series and had found them diverting. And it was on that basis, and the high reviews here (coupled with the fact I had six credits), that I bought this as an audio book. Suffice it to say the book was a disappointment. It starts with an interesting premise and then descends into foolishness. Everyone in rural Minnesota, it seems, including nuns and the police, are involved, to one degree or another, in criminal enterprises. And our intrepid hero, Mr. Davenport, even buys a 12-year-old girl a rifle! But, of course, she’s no ordinary 12-year-old, and as the story plays out, events beg us to thank god she had that rifle. (By the book's end, the author has positioned the 12-year-old, Lettie West, who appears to have won the hearts of many of Mr. Sandford’s devoted readers, myself not included, for more adventures with our hero.) There is little mystery regarding the identity of the perpetrators - we learn who they are relatively early-on. The mystery is whether and how they will be revealed. The former was no mystery at all (of course they will be exposed for what they are!); the latter was not a riveting one. The dialog in the book may work better on the printed page, but much of it fails to pass muster when read aloud. All in all, this is a pretty mediocre story.

    "Great read."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love this series and I think this is one of the best books in it. Light reading with good thrills, simple but interesting storylines and interesting characters.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Maybe it is because I am so used to his narration of this series, but he seems perfect for it and I enjoy his performance.
