Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Another great Prey book"

    As usual, a great crime novel, and great characters.
    Captivating dialogue, performed brilliantly by Richard Ferrone.
    Can't wait to listen to the next one.

    Story
    "Painful to force myself to listen"
    What would have made Shadow Prey better?

    Storyline was jumbled to me. Never caught my attention.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Ferrone’s performances?

    Not sure


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment. Waste of my time and money.

    I'm a crippeled old warrior with difficulty typing/writing etc. I used to love reading books, and have read many. I now love audio books.

    Story
    "Good story, but needed to use my hearing aids."

    I'm no expert qualified to make intelligent comments about any writers work. I just offer the personal opinions of an old country boy. Good story, but needed to use my hearing aids to hear and understand the very soft voice of R. Ferrone. I had to rerun a line or two several times to understand what he said. I'm sure I'd do much better if I wore my hearing aids.
    Over all this was a good tail and worth listening to.

    "YET ANOTHER BROKEN FILE!"

    This is a very irritating experience: to just get going with what you know will be a great listen, then have it freeze over and over.

    "Worst of series"

    I tried five times to read this book, but couldn't make it past hour one. It just couldn't hold my interest. I am attempting to return it but am not having any luck at all.

    "Author is finding his voice"
    Any additional comments?

    This is an early Lucas Davenport. The author is still finding himself and Lucas. While important to the development of the characters, many who will be found in later works, I am uncomfortable with the main plot line.

    Story
    "Not so good"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who live in St.Paul. Sanford relies on his Twin Cities background way too much on this book...maybe Joe Soucheray liked it....


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'll finish up the last 30 minutes of Team of Rivals.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Richard Ferrone?

    He is good. Yes I would.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I'll pick door three.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I'm 'off' on this but I wonder if Sanford wrote it.
    Enough sex for teenage girls but to what purpose?
    Just not well written. Plus, where is the 'who dun it' part?
    I haven't finished yet so maybe it will get better.

    Story
    "Not the Davenport that I know and like"
    Would you try another book from John Sandford and/or Richard Ferrone?

    The newer works are much better, yes.


    Has Shadow Prey turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No but I will pay more attention to the copyright date.


    What three words best describe Richard Ferrone’s performance?

    Good, talented, capable.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Story was intersting at times.


    Any additional comments?

    Just really disliked the Davenport character in this book...or should I say lack of character?

    Story
    "Terrible book"

    I don't expect a novel to be 100% authentic and/or related to reality.
    But: A rich and handsome police officer that is also a computer game inverter, driving Porsche, great father, great lover, successful with women and in his job ? Common . . .

    The endless talk about how he has several women at the same time and the women know and don't care is just too much. I mean there has to be something for a reader so he/she can connect to the protagonist (I'm not saying my life is different though. . . rofl . . .).

    I find it also too obvious that the author used to be a reporter as he tries over and over to talk about the media (his field of expertise) and their connection to the police. This is just lame.

    The same goes for the story. The Indian angle is old and just doesn't go anymore.
    With some good characters and interesting conversations the book could have been saved. But not even this is the case here. No twist whatsoever, conversations that have nothing to do with the story and characters that just couldn't be.

    I couldn't finish the book.
