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.

©2010 John Sandford (P)2010 Penguin

    "Thrilling bur OK at best"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No.


    If you’ve listened to books by John Sandford before, how does this one compare?

    I get tired of the technical ignorance. Guns, cars, everything mecahanical is mis represented and hold no truths.

    This author, while having liberal tendancies, exudes those and has no clue as to the technical stuff. Even a moron knows that the engine is in the back of a Porsche-911. That sort of innacuracy spoil the novel for me.

    Come on John, get your facts straight and Editors. Where are you????


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


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

    Horny Cop-No marals.

    I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.

    Story
    "Another really good novel from John Sanford"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love his audio books. Richard Ferrone is excellent. The story is very good, as are all of his novels I've read.


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

    There's a pun about Weather getting drunk. It's laugh out loud funny.


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

    I've listened to several (more than 6 less than 12/). He's excellent.


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

    No, I had a 5 hour drive to and a 5 hour drive back from a job site. Made the drive enjoyable.

    "Worst Sandford Ever"

    This is, undoubtedly, the worst John Sandford novel to date. Next to nothing happens in it, and the author insists on dragging out the most minute, implausible details in order to push his page count up high enough to demand a "novel" price. I kept falling asleep listening to it. In fact, two-thirds of the way through the unabridged version, I had to switch to the abridged version, just to cut out some of the filler and actually FINISH the thing!

    What a mess. As a writer, I can honestly say that I could've written this story better in one-fourth the page count.

    Terrible stuff. Stick with his earlier work.

    "just OK"

    This book was just OK. I have enjoyed the Prey books before but found this one fairly lackluster compared to it's predecessors. Maybe it was the reader, who made the charcters either sound alike or annoyingly whiny. Not sure which was the culprit, but if I were a first time reader it wouldn't persuade me to purchase another.

    "OK but narrator made it tough"

    The book was decent enough, though the author made the characters a little cutsey-cool, which seems to happen as series get older. Being a upper midwesterner, I couldn't figure how the Minnesota characters could sound like a cops from the eastern seaboard. Plus, Virgil Flowers voice sounded like a thug...definitely different from what he has become in other books.

    "Great if you have a long drive ahead of you"

    ...... and no other means of entertainment. This one time, when I was driving to the cottage we counted cows. I think you get the point.

    "My 2nd Sandford"

    A pretty good yard, intertwining the crime thriller in the midst of an operation to separate conjoined twins. I enjoyed the story of the twins as much as the crime part. But, it ws interesting, fact paced, and an enjoyable listen. I don't know how popular this author is but I'd guess he has a big following in Minnesota, reading about all the local places where crime happens. Without this book I'd never have known that Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan was based on a highway right there in his home state of Minnesota. My first book was his latest and this onethe most recent before that. I guess I'm working my way through his books in reverse chronilogical order. Go Hawks!

    "My first Davenport Novel.."

    I liked it! I got caught up reading John Sandford thru his Virgil Flowers character, so I guess I'm backwards. I KNOW how many books there are in the "Prey" series, but I had never read any until now. I did enjoy this as I felt it was definitely a good crime/suspense story. The story begins simply enough, and I'm thinking - how much can there really be to this? Then the series of bad choices and unfortunate mistakes begin and everyone gets in deeper until the whole thing is a mess. There were some parts to this that I felt went a little too far to be believable, but it wasn't distracting from the overall story. I intend to read more of the books in this series, so I can safely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the crime novel.

    "Good Sandford Novel"

    The story was on par with other Prey novels and the narration was fine. I would recommend this listen to all Sandford fans.

    "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.
