This was a fascinating book about a Belgian detective working in the Netherlands. I thought it was engrossing and well read. However, it’s only the first part. We need parts two and three!

The problem with the book is that it's a whole new cast of characters outside of Minnesota. Not nearly as interesting and compelling.
It also drones on too long.
Overall, pretty stale which is surprising as you would think that the change in venue would switch things up a bit.

This book is so well-written, so clever & witty, I can't believe I just stumbled across it. The author has since published another - Audible, please add it, using the same narrator!
Excellent fit between narrator & material.
Loved it, want more!

Interesting plot, good timing and excellent narration.
Jake Weber is one of the absolute best narrators. Audible should use him much more often.

Don't waste your time with this book. It is poorly plotted and tedious, a typical first try. Not worth the price and absolutely not worth the time.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

probably this was written by a machine. just dreadful.

Would you ever listen to anything by John Sandford again?

hard to tell.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

well, he sure couldn't save a really bad book.

What character would you cut from Field of Prey?

all of 'em.

Any additional comments?

i've been a big sandford fan for decades but the books have been getting more and more violent and sloppy. so disappointing.

If you could sum up The Ghost Riders of Ordebec in three words, what would they be?

Best mystery this year

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them

Any additional comments?

PLEASE PLEASE using the same reader, provide all Fred Vargas' books. She is too good to miss and bless the narrator, he does not butcher the French.
