    Story
    "... when Lucas met Winter ..."
    Would you listen to Winter Prey again? Why?

    Sure, I enjoy a re-listen to the entire Prey series, you pick up little things you may have missed or look forward to the scenes & dialog that you remember. Either way, while waiting for the NEXT prey novel I enjoy a revisit to Minneapolis any time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Winter Prey has a good plot line of its own to keep your interest, but this is the one where Lucas meets Weather. It adds to his back story and gives you more insight to Lucas' personal life.


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

    Many ... he is a wonderful narrator, and for me ... he IS Lucas Davenport. He delivers Lucas' lines exactly how I expect them to be spoken.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lucas gets shot, in the throat ... he can't breathe ... can Weather step in, in time ...


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should add the Prey series to their wish lists.

    "So glad this one came out on audible."

    I'd skipped this one because it wasn't out on audible. I had the intention of going back latter and getting a kindle copy. Then it popped up last week and I grabbed it up. I'm so glad it came through on audible before I bought the kindle copy. This was really good. Lots of tension. Great story.

    Richard Ferrone does a really good job narrating the series. I'm glad it looks like he's doing the entire series.

    There are still some holes in front of me in this series and hopefully they'll fill in before I get to them.

    "Ok heres the deal...."

    I enjoyed the characters however it wasn't quite what i was expecting. I was kind of put off by the fact that the bad guy is a pedophile. If it wasn't for that aspect I would have really enjoyed the book, other than that it was good.

    Finding out who the killer was, & why he wanted to kill a particular person

    Story
    "Davenport...'nuff said"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Winter Prey to be better than the print version?

    I love Mr. Ferrone's performance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Weather


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

    I've only heard him as the narrator of this series and so far, I can't imagine another narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found myself getting emotional when Weather described her parents and when the yellow haired girl ... (don't want to spoil it!)


    Any additional comments?

    Great. Can't wait for the next one.

    "Luke davenport at it again!"

    Great book. I've read some out of sequence, so I can now meet the ever right , weather.
    My only issue with the narrating, is that when you listen to him with headphones, the lengthy pauses that he takes is distracting. With each pause, you can hear him getting his voice ready -deep breathes, & preparing throat.

    "A riveting story"

    This has got to be my favorite "Prey" story. It's so scary! I've listened to this more than once and probably will again!

    "So-So"

    I've always enjoyed John Sandford books, but this was just not very entertaining. The "Ice Man" really didn't seem too menacing, even though a few people died. Plus he did chase people sometimes on his snowmobile - um, wow.

    This book just kind of grossed me out with a bit of child porn. Really, I am not easily grossed out. I just think that part of the story was stupid, if you're talking about a killer in Winter. Let's pick on some adults who can try to defend themselves, not some young kids. Sorry, but this book was not up to par.

    "Sanford is among the best"

    The entertainment I got for the money made it a bargain. Definitely reading the next book. Sanford is a very good mystery writer.
