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.

Audio books depend on the quality of the narrator. This narrator is OK. He doesn't have great range. Men and female characters
sound the same and his accent need work.
fairly good book. just to many characters to keep up with. it was a struggle to get through the middle portion. however am a fan of davenport so I'll keep moving through the series.
The book isn't bad but not great. The passion segments of the book were just not good and way to much of it. Lilly's voice was just horrible the narrator could have done a lot better
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.
