Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford.
After the events in Gathering Prey, Lucas Davenport finds himself in a very unusual situation - no longer employed by the Minnesota BCA. His friend, the governor, is just cranking up a presidential campaign, though, and he invites Lucas to come along as part of his campaign staff. "Should be fun!" he says, and it kind of is - until they find they have a shadow: an armed man intent on killing the governor...and anyone who gets in the way.

Boring

What disappointed you about Extreme Prey?

I've listened to many of this series but this story was just plain boring. Should have returned it.


What was most disappointing about John Sandford’s story?

What's important about most novels is that you find the characters interesting--this didn't happen for me in this story. There also wasn't any tension or excitement--just tedious.


What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He always does a great performance job with this series.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.


Any additional comments?

Listening to Mind Prey and it's so much better.

Not Up To Sandford Style

I was disappointed in this book. I have read or listened to every other Prey book but found this one tedious and very, very slow going. I stayed with it because I just knew it would get better. But, alas, it didn't get much better. The whole premise that he was there to help out the governor who wanted to show support by walking the Iowa Fair. There was a group of activists who it was rumored were going to shoot her. Lucas was hired to find the people and stop the effort. The entire book was spent pretty much in his Mercedes SUV driving the roads between Iowa City and small towns in the area where he looked for these people, interviewed many, then was too dumb to figure out who they were until the last chapter. It was just not what I expect of John Sandford. Perhaps Lucas should go back to work for the BCA where he had some excitement with his helpers, Flowers and Del. Too bad that this would happen but after 26 episodes I guess we had to know we were living on borrowed time.

I didn't think the narrator was as good as in the past.
