Publisher's Summary

The brilliant new Lucas Davenport thriller from the number-one New York Times-best-selling author.

"Sandford's track record as a best-selling author is amazing, but it's not an accident," wrote Booklist of Wicked Prey. "His plotting is sharp, his villains are extraordinarily layered, and his good guys are always evolving.

And this time, there's a storm brewing...Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

Did she see enough? Can she identify them? Gnawing it over later, it seems to them there is only one thing they can do: Find out who she is, and eliminate the only possible witness.

©2010 John Sandford (P)2010 Penguin

    "John Sanford does not disappoint"

    I love the characters of Luke Davenport, his wife Winter and all his colleagues within the police force- The details of each person comes to life.I find myself nodding, laughing, frowning and understanding the different reactions!.John Sanford does not disappoint. ,
    When listening to a book, the narrator has a very important role: the number of characters Richard Ferrone brought to life is amazing.
    Excellent and easy entertainment!

    "Another Novel that Hits a Visceral Level"

    Almost all of Davenports Novels are great in my opinion; the only competitors are Reacher & Rapp in my opinion. This doesn't mean I don't think characters like Harvath, Allon, Bosch, etc... do not have fantastic books that shouldn't be missed. Considering the whole body of work, 23 novels I believe including 'Silken Prey', there are few that have this many books within a series let alone having all 23 worthy of at least a once over. Davenport sets a great standard that is hard to match although I think Rapp, Reacher, & Allon are close, but none of those even have over 20 books within a series, plus 2 supporting characters that add another 9-10 more books I think.

    One of the reasons I loved this particular book is why most people love any of the detective/military/espionage genre, drama & trying to figure out how the book is going to end. If u enjoy a good read that is a large step up from Patterson yet not at the level of vivid description style of Burke where I personally need to pay more attention (the only reason I left Burke out of the above list is because I think the way Burke writes is so unique even though the underlying content is the same, u really have to concentrate on what is said/read or u piss the poetry Burke uses to describe a simple backyard with a stream running thru it lol), Davenport never disappoints, he's not superman but he is someone u can judge their worth by recounting the enemies he's dealt with one way or another... While it took me a bit to really get into all the 'Prey' books while there were some 'Allon & Burke' books I had to read as well, once I really was able to focus on them I flew thru all the unabridged versions & was left asking for more... the good thing is Sandford will usually give us a fix quickly

    "Psycho Killers and some not so smart killers"
    What did you love best about Storm Prey?

    I enjoy Lucas and all his sidekicks


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book. I like Lucas Davenport and his sidekicks. This book starts out with a hospital employee working with some robbers to break into the hospital pharmacy and steal a bunch of high end drugs and end up killing one of the pharmacy employees. Davenport's wife, a surgeon at the hospital, inadvertently sees two of the robbers and they set out to eliminate her as a witness. The body count is high in this book as Davenport and colleagues search for the robbers/killers. The killers really do give you the creeps for psychotic killers. This is a great read if you are looking for a great mystery with some great characters.

    "Typical Sanford"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Give the characters more depth!


    Would you be willing to try another book from John Sandford? Why or why not?

    I have read a few and listened to a few. They are typical "no brainer's" that are easy to listen to when doing chores or tasks.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, good narration.


    Was Storm Prey worth the listening time?

    yes as long as you aren't expecting sophistication.


    Any additional comments?

    Will continue to listen to his books.

    A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!

    "Great writing, but not my cup of tea"

    I was impressed with the John Sandford's writing. He makes a story come to life, which is probably why I won't read another of his books! Too real for my stomach - though I know there are worse. I've seen animals die the way he describes people dying, and it turned my stomach. Too many innocents dying. I finished it because I got intrigued with the story and wanted to know what happened to the twins!

    Narrator was excellent, since I didn't notice him. That, to me, is high praise!

    "Very enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great plot, writing and character development.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Weather, the female surgeon. Sanford does a great job of describing the committment, challenges of being a mother, wife and surgeon, and the calm demeanor needed to be an ourstanding surgeon working under unbelievable stress.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    We love his performances. His voice is a pleasure to listen to, and he uses it to help bring out the feelings of the characters in a meaningful way.

    "Thrilling bur OK at best"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No.


    If you’ve listened to books by John Sandford before, how does this one compare?

    I get tired of the technical ignorance. Guns, cars, everything mecahanical is mis represented and hold no truths.<br/><br/>This author, while having liberal tendancies, exudes those and has no clue as to the technical stuff. Even a moron knows that the engine is in the back of a Porsche-911. That sort of innacuracy spoil the novel for me.<br/><br/>Come on John, get your facts straight and Editors. Where are you????


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Horny Cop-No marals.

    "Another really good novel from John Sanford"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love his audio books. Richard Ferrone is excellent. The story is very good, as are all of his novels I've read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Storm Prey?

    There's a pun about Weather getting drunk. It's laugh out loud funny.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to several (more than 6 less than 12/). He's excellent.


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

    No, I had a 5 hour drive to and a 5 hour drive back from a job site. Made the drive enjoyable.

    "Worst Sandford Ever"

    This is, undoubtedly, the worst John Sandford novel to date. Next to nothing happens in it, and the author insists on dragging out the most minute, implausible details in order to push his page count up high enough to demand a "novel" price. I kept falling asleep listening to it. In fact, two-thirds of the way through the unabridged version, I had to switch to the abridged version, just to cut out some of the filler and actually FINISH the thing!

    What a mess. As a writer, I can honestly say that I could've written this story better in one-fourth the page count.

    Terrible stuff. Stick with his earlier work.
