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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Re-visiting an old friend."
    What made the experience of listening to Storm Prey the most enjoyable?

    Davenport & Co. are reliable old friends. Sandford keeps them true to their nature while allowing them room to grow.


    What did you like best about this story?

    True to form, Sandford offers an interesting batch of miscreants.


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

    Yes. I'm always comfortable with Ferrone's narration.

    "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.

    "Great Prey book - 2nd best"

    This is my second favorite prey book (second to Mortal Prey). The plot is well developed and the reader Richard Ferrone, is at his best again. It came together nicely at the end. Definitely recommended!

    "Narrator closed the lid of a boring story."

    I'm usually pretty good at blocking out annoying narrators but this was too much. I had to fast forward the sections with accents. The story was not interesting enough to hold me and at times ridiculous. At two-thirds the way through I couldn't take it anymore and skipped to the end to hear the outcome.

    "Amateurish writing"

    predictable story with a ridiculous distraction of separating conjoined twins in an operating room setting.
