Tense and builds steam

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.

I enjoyed this.....

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.

Night Prey is a Thriller

A single killer rarely creates as much mayhem as Koop. As Davenport moves in tension rises to OMG moments. Great thriller!

finishing up on Clara Rinker

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.

Excellent

This might be the best one yet. I'm addicted now, I'm listening to all of them going in order written when possible. If you listen try to start from the 1st book in the series and follow it, it will be well worthy your time and money.

I'm Picky & Cranky & I Liked It A Bunch

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.

This one freaked me out a bit

Sometimes when I read these books I find it necessary to skip certain chapters from the villain's point of view due to the fact that I'm so freaked or grossed out by them. This was one of those books. It has a serial killer, stalkers, gore, creepy deaths... Some of the book's blur together and you don't remember the plot; I think this one's impossible to forget. If you are really sensitive to thrillers don't listen to this book at night.

From a Woman's Perspective

First off, Richard Ferrone owns the Davenport series. But I have to disagree with Sandford and his male fans. As clever as the crimes and their solving are, what really makes the writing work in my ear is the personalities, the humorous banter, the profanity – and Davenport's relationship to women. When it comes to women, Davenport is all in, and so this reader doesn't take kindly to sidelining of the women with whom he gets involved. The absolute best books of the series, in this listener's opinion, are the two early 1990s titles that feature the New York detective Lily Rothenburg ("Shadow Prey" and "Silent Prey"). BUT mine is a minority view. In interviews more than a decade later Sandford said he'd settled on a formula that yields books guaranteed sell at the second tier of popular crime writers, and this formula requires that he leave some established characters behind to make room for new ones. You get the idea that Sandford would NEVER disappoint his publishers by turning in a slightly quirkier book once in a while, even though by now he must be richer than all get-out. I can only imagine a book in which Sandford gives as much time to the web of relationships among his law enforcement cast as to the ins and outs of the bad guys' wiles and depravities. The first several books in the series had a slightly better balance, which made them exceptionally compelling entertainment. Maybe the older this talented storyteller has gotten, the less of an interest he has in libidinous men and women in the prime of life.
