Prey tell: listen to another Lucas Davenport thriller.

So happy early books were re-recorded with Richard Ferrone. He is Lucas Davenport and makes tyhe books so much better. Story builds with intensity throughout the book until the eventual ending. Good book I enjoyed it very much.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
The author's recipe is set up an intelligent and devious serial killer who is becoming more brazen, throw in cop Lucas Davenport and his team who just miss catching the serial killer again and again with the situation becoming more and more tense, increase the action and the suspense to an almost unbearable intensity, and then catch/kill the serial killer just as he is striking again. The recipe works; it certainly keeps me reading the novels in the Lucas Davenport series! This is my favorite of the first six books in the series, but it still does not earn 5 stars. 4 stars is plenty good enough to keep me interested.
These are never brain surgery but it's fun to see the way Lucas and his crew works and there is always a pretty good degree of tension. Lucas tends to be kind of a dog but a smart one. This one makes me wonder if he's growing up. Have to wait and see. I'm sure I'll get more, I just wished I wasn't going to have to switch to Abridged if I want to listen to some of them. I really don't want abridged......
Like the narrator. He works well with the characters. I'm glad he does the next two unabridged ones.
I enjoyed this one best of all because it finished Clara Rinker. I was surprised on the ending but if you know the ending what is the point in reading the story anyway. I am however disappointed that Naked Prey is not in the list to be read. Audible will have to take care to put it in their package.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Wuddaya want from a police recedural thriller? It's here. Sandfrord was very good when he wrote this one. Which means that Lucas Davenport holds up as a rich, macho, intelligent cop/detective. If you read for more entertainment than TV or the movies are generally giving out.... Read this. If you want War And Peace... I see that it's on sale. That's not what I wanted, this was... It did not disappoint.
I have to say this one is really boring. This is the second time I'm going through this series I hadn't put a review the first time. The narrator was very slow I know it's the same person that did all the books. Some I enjoyed but this one is just slow. I can't put my finger on it
I really really like this one. I just think the female w cancer part is unneeded and borderline annoying lol but thats just me. I like how Weather is here to stay.....maybe
the author either refers to the characters by their last name or their first. it gets confusing to keep track. the ending was good. and im in the process of reading/listening to all the prey series.
This might be the best one yet. I'm addicted now, I'm listening to all of them going in order written when possible. If you listen try to start from the 1st book in the series and follow it, it will be well worthy your time and money.
