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