In Shadow Prey, the crackling sequel to Rules of Prey, Twin Cities Sleuth Lucas Davenport teams up with NYPD Lieutenant Lily Rothenberg to track down an elusive killer, known only as Shadow Love. Among the victims are a Minneapolis slumlord, a judge from Oklahoma City, and a Manhattan politician. The murder weapon is a Native American ceremonial knife.

still it was engaging. i probably needed more depth. Lucas Davenport seemed a little unrealistic even though the writer explores more of his personality.
Gift Subscription for my lovely wife.
Would've preferred the narrator acted a bit more instead of just reading it. I think I would've been more engaged in the story had the narrator actually put some life into the characters other than that it's a solid thriller.
Not really, it was pretty much more of the same. It was frustrating in several ways. One of the main characters through the book was a man named Shadow Love, the name ruined the flow for me. I know Indian names and anything else would have been better, it distracted me every time Lucas used it and in one chapter he must have said it thirty times.
Possibly, the subject or premise would have to be enticing.
He is perfect for the character Lucas. I would seek him out.
His love affairs were irritating too. I am sure the scenarios happen everyday but...............
This genre has a hero, the cop who you want to believe in, whom you want to succeed. If the "hero" is a scumbag, it's hard to enjoy the book. This "hero" attempts to convince a married woman to cheat on her perfectly innocent and believably loyal husband. When she resists multiple times, he keeps at it. I personally don't find that to be a great character trait and it basically killed any affinity I would have for the "hero" or the story. I will not be purchasing Any subsequent books in this series.
Someone who wants to be bored to death. Too wordy, has a very slow pace.
Shorten the story so it does not drag. Good story but pace too slow.
Very good voice and good vocal variety
None I can think of., Sorry
Basic story okay, but unnecessary language and sex scenes, had nothing to do to keep the story going.
See above, same question.
I loved John Sandford's first book in the Prey Series "Rules of Prey". Classic, well written crime drama - a rogue cop who bends a lot of rules but ultimately gets the job done. Shadow Prey follows the same formula, but I found this story to be a snooze-fest and thus never got "gripped". I'll try the 3rd in the series; depending on my reaction I'll be in for #4 or out the door with Sandford.
Sure, it keeps you hangin.
I will listen to him but his Jersey accent doesn't fit Minnisooooota
Sandford needs to keep his liberal feelings out of his writings
It starts off by gripping my interest and not letting go! I definitely recommend this book!
The climax - the final showdown between good and evil - blew my mind. I was so nervous for Lucas and his family! I could barely breathe! Thank goodness for the safe!!
Lucas - he has a cool, alpha male "swag" about him, and I can feel it through Richard Ferrone's voice.
The beginning of the book was heartbreaking. Without giving away much, my heart ached for the poor girl. She was a human being...somebody's daughter. All I could think to myself is 'She will never be the same.'
I have purchased the next two books in this series! I love the Prey series thus far and plan to listen to each and every book!!!
Thrilling, captivating and enthralling.
It was exciting and felt very plausible. It was a fresh breath that you followed both the police and the killers thoughts. The Main character Lucas Davenport, he's clever, intelligent, tough and a ladies man, but also a man who has has flaws and is hard to figure out. Well written characters that are not one dimensional.
Richard Ferrone has a very cool dry voice, he makes the book come to life. I really enjoyed listening to him tell the story.
Some of the things that made me go woah, didn't see that one comming.
I'm hooked to this series, only greif is that some of the books aren't available in my country.
