Few writers have explored the human dark side with as much insight and power - and in Winter Prey, his shattering New York Times best-seller, Sandford tells his most ice-blooded tale of all. Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport has tracked killers in cities across America. But even he may be unprepared to face the savage murderer hunting human prey in the Wisconsin woods this winter.

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.
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.
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.
Lucas gets shot, in the throat ... he can't breathe ... can Weather step in, in time ...
Everyone should add the Prey series to their wish lists.
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.
I'm 51yrs old. Married for 16yrs. Truck driver for even longer. And I love the Fantasy genre. David Eddings is my favorite author
8 It is a well written story, that have you guessing untill the end.
Finding out who the killer was, & why he wanted to kill a particular person
Dr Weather Karkeenan
No. But it made me gasp a couple of times
Sloan's voice is not always the same, but the entire story is good and engaging. Good for going down the highway
If I'm not reading, I'm listening.
I love Mr. Ferrone's performance.
I love Weather
I've only heard him as the narrator of this series and so far, I can't imagine another narrator.
I found myself getting emotional when Weather described her parents and when the yellow haired girl ... (don't want to spoil it!)
Great. Can't wait for the next one.
Say something about yourself!
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.
Great book! Loved the twists and turns in this one. Hard time following a couple sections but then it came together nicely in the end. Excellent narrating by Richard Ferrone. Can't wait for the next book in the Prey Series!
I have served this country as a U.S. Marine for 10 years, worked for DEA undercover, as a police officer, and a probation officer.
great read as usual. Love Davenport, and had always wanted to read this one. Still need to read the one where Weather saves Lucas with treak, not sure which one that was.
Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
This is one of my favorites of the series. I like the fact that the storyline occurs when Lucas is away relaxing at his cabin. I like that he goes to work and finds a way to tackle the problem of investigating the crime while on vacation. But, I love Weather. I love that she comes into the story and is so far from what Lucas normally knows. She has no connection to law, crime and homicide. And while she admires and then loves Lucas, she never loses herself in the relationship. She is a highly intelligent and equally compassionate woman who will stand up to Lucas when appropriate. She is integral to this novel and I am left wanting more of that relationship.
I have read these in random order. Was glad to know how Lucas and Weather met. The suspense of figuring out who the antagonist actually was in this story kept me intrigued. A very good listen!
