Storm Prey Audiobook

Storm Prey: A Lucas Davenport Novel

Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

Publisher's Summary

The brilliant new Lucas Davenport thriller from the number-one New York Times-best-selling author.

"Sandford's track record as a best-selling author is amazing, but it's not an accident," wrote Booklist of Wicked Prey. "His plotting is sharp, his villains are extraordinarily layered, and his good guys are always evolving.

And this time, there's a storm brewing...Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

Did she see enough? Can she identify them? Gnawing it over later, it seems to them there is only one thing they can do: Find out who she is, and eliminate the only possible witness.

    All I have to say is...this one is twisted. The two "bad guys" are the most hilarious duo.

    "John Sandford rules"

    Like many John Sandford fans, I've read or listened to (or both) all of the Prey books. I love the story lines, and Richard Ferrone IS Lukas Davenport - no one else could read these books as well. Storm Prey is right up there with the best. Now I have to wait another year for another Lukas Davenport novel!

    "Still a fun read!"

    In this episode of the "Prey" novel series. Lucas Davenport plays a lesser role than I've become accustomed to. The author instead brings in a supporting cast to flesh out the story. Including Virgil Flowers and other characters from earlier books. I found this story entertaining and satisfying. Perhaps I suppose, because I'm a big Sandford fan and I've grown fond of the storyline. However I get the feeling that it's getting a bit tired, and running on momentum instead of forging ahead. Still a worthwhile read though!

    "Davenport Back in Action"

    By now, those of us who listen to Sandford's Prey series know what we're going to get: wicked predators who like to kill and a lantern-jawed cop who's not alive unless he's hunting a perp. In this one, his wife Weather is in danger because she's a witness to a hospital burglary that results in a murder. Sandford also pads this one with the description of a long, delicate surgical process to separate two babies joined at the skull: Weather is a vital part of the surgical team. It's disappointing that Sandford enlists his other series hero, Virgil Flowers, as Weather's bodyguard but gives him almost nothing to do. The best thing about the audio is Richard Ferrone, who has performed every Prey book I've heard and who has the perfect throaty voice for a hardboiled plot-driven story. I listen to these books while exercising, and they're great page-turners if you don't mind lots of graphic violence and cops who prefer revenge to justice. Sometimes the simplistic and sadistic villains are unintentionally comic, and there's a bit of sexism built into the series that's almost tongue in cheek, but if you can turn off your higher frequencies and listen with your reptile brain, you'll enjoy the vicarious thrill of being Lucas Davenport, a man's man who always gets his man.

    "One of the best of the Prey series"

    I really enjoyed this one. It didn't turn into a page turner until over half way through but then I couldn't put it down. Having Lucas, Weather, and Virgil all together again as the main characters made it even more interesting. The story was predictable but it didn't make it any less interesting. In some cases, it even enhanced it. It's definitely a great read. I highly recommend it.

    "The evil Dr. Barakat"

    The characters in this book were great. Dr. Barakat is dripping with evil. Cappy is void of any redeeming social values. The Mack brothers were bad guys but occasionally would show a hint of decency, especially Joe. To the rescue comes Lucas Davenport, ably assisted by another Sandford protagonist, Virgil Flowers. And then there's narrator Richard Ferrone. The voice he uses when bad guys say dumb things made me laugh out loud. If you don't mind graphic violence (remember folks, it's fiction) and you like a thriller with interesting characters read by a talented narrator, then download this book. It's one of the best in the Prey series and I think I've listened to them all.

    "One hell of a ride"

    Very good! Once again John Sanford proves why he's the master! I've read or listened to just about everything he's written and this is one hell of a ride! I love his Davenport stories!

    "loved it!"

    Haven't read this favorite series in many years and now I'm looking forward to getting reacquainted. I had forgotten how funny and wonderfully drawn his protagonists are. The villains are written in a way that makes them matter to the very end. You don't root for them but there is dignity there.

    Off to read the next one!
