    "Couldn't Stop Listening"

    I just couldn't stop listening to this book. The plot and exposition, especially the sub-plot about the "Robin Hood" cops just held me until it was over. It also got me thinking.

    This story takes place mostly in NYC during the last days of the Dinkins administration, when the city is on the brink of falling apart. The subplot about the Robin Hood cops who decide to take out some of the more egregious low-lifes making the city a hell-hole, presents some great arguments both pro & con. However, history shows that when the next administration, headed by Rudy Giuliani came in and started enforcing ALL the laws, especially the quality of life laws lawlessness went way down. The city now seems quite decent. This kept running through my head all the while reading the book.
    I used to live in NY state, not too far from the city and saw all this happen, so the story resonates with me, and I could understand the discouragement of those cops.

    "Never too late to love Sandford"

    There's really no need to review this NYC cop thriller because everyone knows Sandford's the bomb, but if you're on the fence about using a credit for this title, don't hesitate. Richard Ferrone expertly spins the Lucas Davenport tale and Sandford doesn't disappoint. Eerie bad guy. Cheeky good guy. Nutty dialogue. Edge of your seat fare. Click add to cart and you'll be happy.

    "Disguises"
    What made the experience of listening to Silent Prey the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy reading series and this novel, Silent Prey, is the fourth book in this series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Silent Prey?

    The most memorable moment of Silent Prey was knowing what character's were involved in the serial murders of chosen citizens of New York.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I am very pleased with listening to Richard Ferrone's narration. I've listened to him throughout the Lucas Davenport series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, because I always want to know how Lucas Davenport creates havoc while solving murders with the fellow member's of the police precinct they belong to.


    Any additional comments?

    Sending Lucas to New York to be a part of their precinct was quite creative. I could well understand that they may think twice before calling him to help with another murder. I hope he is able to return to his old job in the next book. The guy is driving himself nuts as well as some of his friend's. Having a lot of money isn't the answer to enjoying life.

    "Excellect mystery as well as a great thriller!"

    This was really good, and inspired me to buy a few more books by the same author and narrator. I kept going back over some parts just for the colorful descriptions.

    "Not your typical Davenport"

    The story didn't measure up to the usual fare. Having too many things going on meant a lot of ponderous setting up for the plot. The ending is not totally expected. so well worth the long journey in the end.

    Story
    "Narrator smacks! Story slow and confusing."

    I tried this book because most of the reviews really made it sound good.
    But it was not for me at all...

    The story is slow and over detailed where it doesn't need to be. The plot has potential to be interesting but the author fails to deliver. I kept listening waiting for it pick up and really suck me in, but I never could get into it.

    The narrator makes it very very confusing to follow the story because all of his voices, for men & women, sound the same.
    But the thing that really ruined this book for me...the narrator sounds like he has terrible cotton mouth and smacks after every sentence. A couple times it was so loud it made me squirm hearing that nasty noise right in my ear.

    Story
    "Super dated and not in a good way."
    What disappointed you about Silent Prey?

    The tone of the protagonist is just to much. Over the top. It might have been good in its day, but it just annoying now.


    What was most disappointing about John Sandford’s story?

    Great bad guy, horrible everything else.


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

    Nope, sorry. Save the credit for someone that is actually good.


    Any additional comments?

    Just save the credits. I have not said this about a book in awhile, but it was just bad. Not sure if the good ratings are fans from when he published these before the internet or what, but this is some dated stuff, and to me I can't get into detective stuff if its written like this.

    "excellent story"

    purchased this because the villain from the last book #3 was to escape. I wanted to see what happened. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the story had a duel plot. great twists and turns. the conclusion was unpredictable and even believable. I'm enjoying the development of the main character, Davenport too.

    Story
    "Bekker's Back"
    Would you listen to Silent Prey again? Why?

    Yes, I would enjoy listening and/or reading Silent Prey again in the future. This is the second time I have read/listened to the Lucas Davenport series. Silent Prey is one of the best early books in the series, Sandford is just getting his stride with this book. Character development and involvement in this story is well defined and used to keep the reader/listener interested from beginning to end even if you didn't know this was a follow up book.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ferrone brings a smooth listening experience to this book and the others he has narrated. He is able to allow the listener just to sit back and listen to the story and thus the story develops independently of struggling to keep up with who is who and who is talking all the time. This is not true of all narrators and Ferrone is one of my favorites.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy a book thriller with some background story involvement then you will enjoy any of the Lucas Davenport series, and if you new to listening to books then you can't go wrong listening to Richard Ferrone as one of your first narrators.
