In Shadow Prey, the crackling sequel to Rules of Prey, Twin Cities Sleuth Lucas Davenport teams up with NYPD Lieutenant Lily Rothenberg to track down an elusive killer, known only as Shadow Love. Among the victims are a Minneapolis slumlord, a judge from Oklahoma City, and a Manhattan politician. The murder weapon is a Native American ceremonial knife.

One of the best in the Prey series. Subtle yet compelling and with a suspenseful plot. Richard Ferrone is a forceful and very listenable narrator.
Yes; the writing is wonderful, stories are intricate, plausible, and a little humor never hurts.
All of the John Sanford books are great; I look forward to each new one as it comes out,. My favorite author, right along with Michael Connelly.
None in particular. All are good.
Yes, but I made myself savor it.
Although not exclusively, I do read a lot of crime novels and I am perplexed by the good ratings this one received. There are a lot of good crime fiction authors out there but this is not one. I do make allowances for a novel considering the fact that it is entertainment and does not need to be completely realistic. But this Novel was just bad. The characters are improbable and inconsistent. The dialog is unrealistic and cheesy. The actions of the characters are erratic. The overall idea of the story is good; the rest is just not good. I can imagine that if you are a male seeking a fantasy fulfilling story of a rich tough guy that can have his cake and eat it too and do not care much about the literature value, this is a story for you.
People who live in St.Paul. Sanford relies on his Twin Cities background way too much on this book...maybe Joe Soucheray liked it....
I'll finish up the last 30 minutes of Team of Rivals.
He is good. Yes I would.
I'll pick door three.
Maybe I'm 'off' on this but I wonder if Sanford wrote it.
Enough sex for teenage girls but to what purpose?
Just not well written. Plus, where is the 'who dun it' part?
I haven't finished yet so maybe it will get better.
Yes. Very entertaining and exciting.
Lucas taking no prisoners at the end!
One of my favorite readers. Great job as usual!
The newer works are much better, yes.
No but I will pay more attention to the copyright date.
Good, talented, capable.
Story was intersting at times.
Just really disliked the Davenport character in this book...or should I say lack of character?
Exciting, sarcastic, fun
When Lucas first meets Shadow in the apartment
Richard Ferrone has become Lucas Davenport. His voice brings the right amount of edge, sarcasm and humor. He is a great narrator.
Yes if only I could.
So happy that the old Prey novels have been released in this fashion with Richard Ferrone reading them. Hats off to John Sandford, great author.
Yes - unusual storyline and it kept me interested due to the mix of characters
Lucas Davenport - non-conformist
no - found it mostly enjoyable
I don't read books in print asuch as I used to. I now prefer audio, especially for trips and before bedtime.
Lucas Davenport is always a favorite. I like all of John Sandford's characters--the so-called villains and the heroes.
The early murders and then the later justification for the native Americans.
This is the second time I heard the book. I bought it twice by mistake, not realizing it was in my old library. I liked it as well the second time around. Sandford is a great storyteller and character builder. I like his ironic or wry sense of humor. The narrator, Ferrrone is also on the mark--keeps me engaged. More Sandford, please!
