Best-selling author John Sandford takes all the action and suspense of his acclaimed Prey novels and heads west to the dark gleam of L.A.- where the Night Crew works. A mobile unit of video freelancers, they prowl the midnight streets to sell to the highest network bidder. Murders. Robberies. High-speed chases. For them, it is an exhilerating life. But tonight, two deaths will change everything.
Not a great story, not a bad story, just vaguely unsatisfying. The characters were not particularly well defined or likeable. The plot seemed typical Sandford. Just sort of meh. Not sure I would listen to another one if this set of characters develops into an independent series.

This is probably the first Sandford novel I've listened to that did not feature Lucas Davenport or Virgil Flowers. I missed them. Richard Ferrone gave his usual good performance but the story lacked a prominent "bad guy" as it developed. Yes there was a villain but we really never got to know him well. And his motives were tenuous. I liked the major characters and feel like Sandford could have done more to develop them. This wasn't one of those "phone it in" novels we sometimes experience from authors who have done much better. But it also wasn't memorable. Maybe Sandford should stick to his two main guys.

Cannot believe it was written by John Sandford. I will not ever read another Sandford book without Virgil Flowers. I am returning this book! I only read the first few chapters.

The set up was good, the characters interesting, but then Sanford flails about until the end. The problem is the range of possible that guys is pretty small, yet our good guys can't hold salient details in their heads long enough to ferret him out. She can't even say for sure if the killer is not her ex-boyfriend even though she encounters the killer in good light, hears his voice and wrestles with him. Mask or no, this is an easy ID. There's no good reason this is a challenging case, thus to spin it out evidence has to be ignored and characters have to be dumb. Disappointing.

Everything, could not be better.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes it did make me laugh, but was also scary.

I have never encountered a John Sandford book that I didn't enjoy. Richard Ferrone always does a good job as narrator to tell the story. A very good combination.

What would have made The Night Crew better?
As usual Richard Ferrone is perfect. I love all of John Sandford's "Prey" books and was excited to find another book by him that I had not listened to. I can't even get past a hour of listening. I quit. This book is bordering of just plain silly! Maybe it gets exciting and starts to make sense further on but I'm way to disappointed and bored to go any further. Going to ask for a refund on this one.<br/>

I had a bit of trouble warming up to this in the beginning, but as it progressed I got to like the lead hereon in the story. Like Lucas Davenport she's no nonsense and a bit damaged so she's willing to go to the dark side if that's what it takes.
Although it's a complete story....The very ending sort of hinted at a possible second story on the horizon.
Being a trucker from ND I prefer stories with Lucas or Virgil from MN and the region because I know many of the areas. But Sanford does a damn good job on location in CA too. In fact I also heard another new book with characters out of the Washington, DC area...He sounded well versed from there too.
John Sanford is one of my all time greatest authors because I can chew up a lot of asphalt listening and staying awake. Not all authors in this gents can do that
I am a fan of of Sanford but to me this one missed the target
love reading this book just like all of this authors books. The narrator reading was great.
