Winter Prey | [John Sandford]

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.

    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.

    Story
    "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.

    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.

    "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.

    "Somewhat Predictable but Still Worth Listening To"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I did feel the ending was a bit predictable, but I still enjoyed it.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very good narrator who was easy to listen too and keep my attention.


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

    This is the first John Sandford book that I have ever listened to or read and was pleased with it. I will probably download more of his books.

    Enjoyed the story. Have enjoyed this series for years. Good to go to early episode to see how Weather comes into the continuing storyline of the series.

    Story
    "He does it again!"

    Just when I started to wonder if Sandford could keep it up in his "Prey" series, he hits the ball out of the park with another one. In Winter Prey, Lucas finally falls in love and the woman is his equal in intelligence, courage and heart. The killer is horrifyingly bad, in the way we love them to be. Highly intelligent, completely corruptible, and psychologically skewed. This story has sex ring stuff, child abuse, good old fashioned romance, a suspicious priest and our hero get mortally wounded......no spoilers beyond this.

    And I can't say enough about the narrator, Richard Ferrone- his voice is amazing and his interpretation and nuanced characters are compelling, seductive, scary, wistful, dramatic.---he has it all.

    "There is something about listening..."

    I have read much of John Sandford, and Lucas Davenport, but there is something about listening to the story that makes it much more vivid. I love Lucas, and Weather, and this was one of my favorite Prey books. No question that the earlier books are more vicious than the later titles in the series.
