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. 

Please note: This is the abridged edition. An unabridged version is also available.

Good Job

I usually don't like audio books because I have a hard time keeping interested in them. The combination of John Sandford's story and Richard Ferrone's narration made this book one of the good ones. It may have helped that this is one of the ones I read before Kindle and therefore didn't have to concentrate as much as I would have if I didn't know what was happening.

Lucas and Virgil together again.

I like it when Virgil shows up in St. Paul. The story held my interest 90% through. I think it fell short with the killing of a villian in the book at the end.

Gripped from the beginning

As usual, Sandford drew me in with the first chapter & the book just got better as it went along. It was great to have Lucas Davenport back in action. One of the best books I've purchased in quite some time.
