"A good plot, a great villain, and a realistic, flawed hero, combined with a great reading by Lang, all make this a very entertaining 'listen.'" (Library Journal)
"Sandford has sustained his "prey" thrillers by varying the premise with imaginative plotting; shifting points of view; a subtle, melancholy protagonist; and most of all, great villains. The ninth prey novel may well be the best, and that's high praise in the context of such a consistently entertaining body of work." (Booklist)

Another winner for Sandford
How does he do it? Sandford, I mean. He has turned out so many of these "Prey" novels, yet they are all different (even if related in some ways) and spectacular in terms of being true crime thrillers.
The reader is excellent. As I said, another winner for Sandford

Sometimes change is good...sometimes not
One of the things about listening to an audio series, or reading one for that matter, is that you begin to understand who the main character is that you are following through all these books. You may like that person, you may not, but the point is you have grown to understand and find some sort of comfort in the consistency of that. Richard Ferrone was the narrator for the previous Prey series and had developed the character of Lucas Davenport in a specific way. Over time the reader could distinguish between vocal tones, knowing what type of response Lucas was giving. With the switch to this new narrator, Lucas Davenport became a COMPLETELY different person. The narrator tried to hard to give emotion to a man who isn't supposed to express all that much emotion to begin with. His attemps at female voices are terrible and it completely takes away from the stories. Over the years I have become a BIG fan of the Prey series but I was unable to even get through this one. I highly recommend skipping this one and looking to see who is narrating. I didn't think it would make a big difference but the difference was actually huge.
