Silent Prey: Lucas Davenport, Book 4

In Eyes of Prey, Bekker, an insane pathologist who experiments with his patients’ pain thresholds, is finally brought down by an unrelenting Lucas Davenport, who brutally maims the doctor’s beautiful face but leaves him alive. “You should have killed me,” were Bekker’s parting and prophetic words.

In this sequel to Eyes of Prey, Bekker endures the indignities and horrors of imprisonment, taking comfort in the fact that it is only a matter of time before he will make Lucas Davenport pay.

    "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.

    "Lucas vs Becker Pt.2"
    What made the experience of listening to Silent Prey the most enjoyable?

    The pace and depth of the story.


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

    When Lucas finally figured out how Becker was able to get close to his victims.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Michael Becker, Richard Ferrone made it seem like Becker was actually standing in front of me. I could feel the Insaneness in his voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Beauty and the Beast inside.


    Any additional comments?

    If a movie is made, don't cast Mark Harmon as Lucas. It needs to be someone more imposing to capture the essence of Lucas Davenport.

    "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.

    I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.

    "good but not great"

    Loved the third book. But this one is gratuitously violent. I have liked books 1-3 better.
    Predictable. The narrator is wonderful as always, but the story line and characters, not that good.

    If you could sum up Silent Prey in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful,Creepy, Satisfying


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

    How the pathologist, planned and executed that plan.


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

    Yes, pretty much the same. I do like him but I have difficulty telling one character from another, more often than I would prefer.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dr. Mengele II


    Any additional comments?

    I do enjoy, the fact that Lucas has found happiness with Weather and family life but it took some of the edge of the cliff situations and some of his more colorful bad choices away. Those were enjoyable and those "Oh Boy, Hold On" situations away, I miss them.

    Lucus Davanport is someone you seriously don't want to mess with. I couldn't seem to put the book down. The serial killer is absolutely brilliant. Lucus as always is a star. Great read from start to finish. can't wait to read the next book :)

    "Loved it."

    To be fair, I love these books (and not just the Davenport series, but the Virgil Flowers series too). I love Richard Ferrone as the narrator. I've recently started going back and listening/reading the very first of his novels (for the first time), and they are just as good as his later novels. If I had one criticism, (and this is a truly lame point) I think the cover art is lousy. Let's be honest, if your biggest criticism of a book is that the cover art is lousy, chances are it's going to be a good book.
