Rules of Prey

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: John Sandford

Narrated By: Richard Ferrone

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: December 2005

Duration: 11 hours 57 minutes


Pulitzer Prize winner John Sandford began his #1 New York Times best-selling series with this riveting novel that floored critics and fellow novelists alike. "So chilling that you're almost afraid to turn the pages," hailed Carl Hiassen, while Robert B. Parker praised the "cop and a killer you will remember for a long, long time." The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport--a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare--is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    I found this book very engaging. I listen to books on CD while I walk my dog and do my daily power walking. With some cd's I find my mind wandering, but not with Rules of Prey. It was a great listen.

    I didn't like the reader and that probably biased my opinion of the entire story. However, the "game" in the story was not complex, intelligent, intriguing enough to keep a lot of interest. I didn't identify with or care about the characters.

    Gives us a further glimpse into Davenport's progression when he was still a cop and before he had further moved up the food chain. More of an edge to the way he handles people - both informants and women in his life. Shows more of an ability to play cut-throat when the stakes are high. For those who enjoy this character, this book fills in a few cracks in his later development.

    Great listen. It was written quite a while ago, before the common use of cell phones but if you can overlook the out of date technology, the story is great. Keeps moving and was totally enjoyable.

    I have been a John Sanford fan for years and this is one of the best Lucas Davenport novels I have ever listened to. The fact that this book was written in 1989 and just recently recorded gives us a great view of Davenport in his earlier days. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
