As an avid and dedicated listener to all of John Sandford's novels, I was non-plussed by the shallow and contrived plot for this latest installment of the Lucas Davenport series. In short, LD -who is now freelancing - is engaged to protect a female presidential candidate in the election run up. Threats have surfaced that someone wants the candidate dead and it's LD's job to find them and avert the assassination. Hmmm. I've just written a plot that has been written a thousand times before and in this particular case, there aren't any twists and turns to change that template from the mundane to the interesting.Hence the reason for the low rating.
As a huge fan of John Sandford's books, and having read all the Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers books, I've been enjoying experiencing them again on audio. I've worked my way through the Flowers book, finding Eric Conger's narration hugely enjoyable.
I decided to start listening to the Davenport books with the most recent, which I read when it came out a few months back. I was a bit nervous at first, having got so used to Conger's voice, but soon found fresh enjoyment to be had in the unique and excellent style of Richard Ferrone.
As to the book itself, this is May favourite Davenport from the past three or four years. A great read, and very enjoyable. Also, as the character has embarked on a new section of his life, it's a great jumping in point for new readers.
I do long distance driving for work and was happy to find Lucas Davenport! I listened to all of the books narrated by Richard Ferrone.. This book as with the other 26 in the series was spectacular.. I love that all the books were read by the same man. Richard Ferrone has the perfect voice as Lucas Davenport. They say it's not important to read the books in order but I would as you learn to know the life of Lucas Davenport and how he grows.. Great series.. Can't wait for Golden Prey to come to audible!
