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.

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.
Storyline was jumbled to me. Never caught my attention.
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.
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.
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.
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.
fast, easy and enjoyable
I like mystery's
I love listening to books when I exercise
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.
People who live in St.Paul. Sanford relies on his Twin Cities background way too much on this book...maybe Joe Soucheray liked it....
I'll finish up the last 30 minutes of Team of Rivals.
He is good. Yes I would.
I'll pick door three.
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.
The newer works are much better, yes.
No but I will pay more attention to the copyright date.
Good, talented, capable.
Story was intersting at times.
Just really disliked the Davenport character in this book...or should I say lack of character?
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.
