John Sandford's best-selling Lucas Davenport series continues with the fast-paced, compelling thriller, Night Prey. A series of deaths leads to the possibility of a brutal serial killer of unusual skill and savagery. And if Lucas is right, the killer is just getting warmed up....
Prey tell: listen to another Lucas Davenport thriller.

So happy early books were re-recorded with Richard Ferrone. He is Lucas Davenport and makes tyhe books so much better. Story builds with intensity throughout the book until the eventual ending. Good book I enjoyed it very much.
These are never brain surgery but it's fun to see the way Lucas and his crew works and there is always a pretty good degree of tension. Lucas tends to be kind of a dog but a smart one. This one makes me wonder if he's growing up. Have to wait and see. I'm sure I'll get more, I just wished I wasn't going to have to switch to Abridged if I want to listen to some of them. I really don't want abridged......
Like the narrator. He works well with the characters. I'm glad he does the next two unabridged ones.
I enjoyed this one best of all because it finished Clara Rinker. I was surprised on the ending but if you know the ending what is the point in reading the story anyway. I am however disappointed that Naked Prey is not in the list to be read. Audible will have to take care to put it in their package.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Wuddaya want from a police recedural thriller? It's here. Sandfrord was very good when he wrote this one. Which means that Lucas Davenport holds up as a rich, macho, intelligent cop/detective. If you read for more entertainment than TV or the movies are generally giving out.... Read this. If you want War And Peace... I see that it's on sale. That's not what I wanted, this was... It did not disappoint.
I started the series in order, but skipped the second book due to the plot summary and a couple of reviews. Winter Prey is my absolute favorite so far. This book is the worst I have read in the series up to this point. I did not find any of the new characters interesting. The killer is not particularly intelligent and does not take Lucas on the typical mind game ride. If future books are similar, I will have to stop the series or skip through it.
I am 57, an English Lit major in college who has worked in a technicial field most of my life. I live near saltwater and in the evening, the wind blows the coolness of the mist and salt air through town like a welcome visitor with a freshly baked cake in their arms. Be well, Tom
I have listened to ten of his books and all are good.
John Sanford knows the world of cops and crime with a twist of romance. Great stuff.
I can't imagine anyone else reading the book. He becomes the charactors.
I read all of JA Jance's books and figured I would never find a comparable author. I did in John Sanford.
Ugh! After reading Stephen King recommending "Buried Prey" in Entertainment Weekly," I chose this one because, frankly, it was cheaper. Well, not worth even the reduced price. This book takes itself SO seriously, with the monotonous droning narration of pseudo noir. The story is hopelessly dated (entrenched in identity politics of the mid-90's, with many comments about "the feminists" (watch out!)). And, when the author hits upon a phrase or description he likes, he does not hesitate to pound away at it until it's dry as dirt. So you'll hear many, many references to burning human flesh smelling like pork (and more pork) and the supposed charm of the female overbite. Finally, an early suspect in the crime is named "Junkie Doog." Hearing poor "Junkie" referenced again and again in the narrator's super-serious tone was at first hilarious and then just tedious. I mean, Junkie Doog? Could not finish listening to this one. All I can say is "Feh."
