Publisher's Summary

Few writers have explored the human dark side with as much insight and power - and in Winter Prey, his shattering New York Times best-seller, Sandford tells his most ice-blooded tale of all. Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport has tracked killers in cities across America. But even he may be unprepared to face the savage murderer hunting human prey in the Wisconsin woods this winter.

    Finding out who the killer was, & why he wanted to kill a particular person

    "Davenport...'nuff said"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Winter Prey to be better than the print version?

    I love Mr. Ferrone's performance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Weather


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

    I've only heard him as the narrator of this series and so far, I can't imagine another narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found myself getting emotional when Weather described her parents and when the yellow haired girl ... (don't want to spoil it!)


    Any additional comments?

    Great. Can't wait for the next one.

    "So glad this one came out on audible."

    I'd skipped this one because it wasn't out on audible. I had the intention of going back latter and getting a kindle copy. Then it popped up last week and I grabbed it up. I'm so glad it came through on audible before I bought the kindle copy. This was really good. Lots of tension. Great story.

    Richard Ferrone does a really good job narrating the series. I'm glad it looks like he's doing the entire series.

    There are still some holes in front of me in this series and hopefully they'll fill in before I get to them.

    Story
    "... when Lucas met Winter ..."
    Would you listen to Winter Prey again? Why?

    Sure, I enjoy a re-listen to the entire Prey series, you pick up little things you may have missed or look forward to the scenes & dialog that you remember. Either way, while waiting for the NEXT prey novel I enjoy a revisit to Minneapolis any time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Winter Prey has a good plot line of its own to keep your interest, but this is the one where Lucas meets Weather. It adds to his back story and gives you more insight to Lucas' personal life.


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

    Many ... he is a wonderful narrator, and for me ... he IS Lucas Davenport. He delivers Lucas' lines exactly how I expect them to be spoken.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lucas gets shot, in the throat ... he can't breathe ... can Weather step in, in time ...


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should add the Prey series to their wish lists.

    "Ferrone does excellent narration!"

    Great book! Loved the twists and turns in this one. Hard time following a couple sections but then it came together nicely in the end. Excellent narrating by Richard Ferrone. Can't wait for the next book in the Prey Series!

    "Classic Sanford and Ferrone"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Winter Prey to be better than the print version?

    Don't know - never read the print version. I would think it's better. Listening to Richard Ferrone narrate a great story is a wonderful experience.


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

    Too many to list.

    Having listened to all available books in this series, re-listening to this was special. Revisiting Lucas's first meeting Weather was really cool.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Lucas, of course.
    And Weather.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Having listened to all available books in this series, re-listening to the time when Lucas first meat Weather was really good.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book; well worth the time to listen.

    "Ok heres the deal...."

    I enjoyed the characters however it wasn't quite what i was expecting. I was kind of put off by the fact that the bad guy is a pedophile. If it wasn't for that aspect I would have really enjoyed the book, other than that it was good.

    "Well Done Entry"

    As I have said in so many other reviews, if you like the series, you will like this entry. The character of Lucas Davenport continues to build as he takes on a murder case in the freezing north. I could not figure out who the killer was until the author did the reveal and that's how I like it. The author does a good job keeping the story moving along with a minimum of scene setting. Overall, well done.

    Story
    "Chilling Crimes Collectively Concealed"

    Davenport is at it again. This time, facing an adversary hiding in plain sight. A history of illicit sexcapades implicate many, but it's up to Lucas Davenport, in his deputized status, to find the missing connection. As usual, the narrator is in a league of his own, weaving the oral tapestry that is the story's fabric.

    Excellent listen!
