DON'T PISS SANDFORD OFF!!
WOW! OK.... That's a word every reviewer should avoid.... Yet...
This is the Best Lucas Davenport novel ever.... EVER!!! And I reeeeeeely liked each of the earlier 12. But of course I'm writing a glowing review of "Mortal Prey" because it's twists are so fiendishly clever that well, I'm not going to get John Sanford PO'd at me. No way.
Stuff just keeps on coming out of the Sanford chute and I dare you to duck every time. What makes it so edge-of-your-seat gripping is that Sanford is a devilishly smart craftsman. He doesn't waste a period in "Mortal Prey". And he seduces you into... Well damn, I can't tell you without a spoiler. But you will find your Clara Rinker sympathies molded by this guy like... Well, you ever see people who make butter sculptures? I mean, who the H molds butter???? The stuff's got no useful shelf life. Those things are almost gone before they're finished yet some of them are amazing and....
(SLAP!) Allright! Stop. I'm digressing. But the point is that this novel's better planned than a NYC skyscraper. YOU WILL GET YOUR MONEY's WORTH! And I hope all of that is complimentary enough because Sandford absolutely proves in "Mortal Prey" that if you get this guy perturbed well, he can plan a cunningly ghastly revenge. So 15 stars... count 'em... 15!
While I totally appreciate Richard Ferrone's dramatic sense, I sort of wish he could do accents better, particularly Spanish. Still he is Lucas Davenport and no substitute will do
I know it's overused... In fact when it comes to reviewing, "WOW!" is the opiate of the unimaginative, but still, as I listened to "We hope you've enjoyed..." What kept banging around in my head was...
BTW: I Did something stupid. Erroneously I posted this review to "Chosen Prey" which at this time I have yet to listen to. Audible has nicely taken that erroneous posting to "Chosen Prey" down and I intend to review it whenever I get to that book. Sanford, over the years, has done a lot of prey-ing. However, If this caused anyone confusion... sorry. When stupidity is sufficient explanation... Why look farther, huh?
