Storm Prey: A Lucas Davenport Novel | [John Sandford]

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.

    "My favorite Prey book"

    This was my first introduction to the Prey series and I am glad it was. I really enjoyed this book. Being in the medical field, that kept me interested in the plot and following the twins' surgery. I enjoyed it very much, right up to the end.

    "Humorous and exciting...a great combination!"

    Lucas Davenport and "the gang" are back and entertaining as ever! Thumbs up to this Sanford novel, kept me listening while sitting in the dark, in my car, in my garage because I couldn't turn off my ipod. Great ending, you can't go wrong.

    "Disappointing Sandford read!"

    Let me preface these remarks by saying that I really enjoy Sandford's work. Up til now, I've found most all the novels to be enjoyable with reasonably captivating story lines.

    This one, in my opinion, is really lame. The story line itself is not normal Sandford quality nor is the lack of character development. In fact, the only reason I finished is to feel like I got some value for the
    money spent.

    Had I to do it over again, I would have saved the money.

    "Excellent as always"

    I love John Sandford writing and Richard Ferrone is an excellent narrator for this series. I always love that f%*9ing flowers!! I glad also to see a spin-off for flowers.

    "Great for my first audio book"

    Could be a 5 but I have nothing to compare it to. Some foul language so that could be an issue, but not alot and it was a great story. I was eager to for the next day so I could listen again. I will definitely get the next Lucas Davenport book when it comes out.

    "Okay"

    Not my favorite John Sanford novel. Too many characters so that you could not get into any of them. I prefer Eric Conger as the narrarator.

    "Sanford sets new record for using conjunctives"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I dont know, for the life of me I cannot understand how such simplistic even amateurish writing could be enjoyable


    What could John Sandford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    write in at least 2 dimensions. This author uses the word "and" so repetitive that I had to go back and count the obscene number of times he used it in a single paragraph. In fact in one run on sentence "and" showed up no less than 6 times.


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

    no, but he does a decent job with bad material


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Storm Prey?

    run on sentences with "and" used over and over and...well you get it


    Any additional comments?

    The first Sanford novel I read was grueling to get through, several years later I thought I would give him one more try. I simply dont get his popularity. Stick with John Connelly or Nelson DeMille or James Lee Burke (shocking that Sanford could even be mentioned amongst the great mystery writers.

    "Time for some changes"

    I think it's time for Davenport to get some new outside interest to enrich these stories. Life is settling in a bit too predictably for these colorful characters. I appreciate that the "yeh yeh" comments were trimmed down. Solid story but if it were the first "prey" story I had read, I would have not looked for anymore in the series.
