Storm prey
John Sandford
Adult Fiction SANDFOR

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

When a robbery of a hospital pharmacy leads to the death of one the pharmacists, the sudden switch from theft to murder brings a whole new level of pressure onto the thieves. Adding to their woes is an eyewitness they need to silence permanently. Sandford has delivered a fast-paced thriller with great quirky characters worthy of an Elmore Leonard novel, and Richard Ferrone brings just the right tone and expertise to his reading. With smooth assurance he keeps the story moving at a fast clip, but never at the expense of the characters, to whom he gives solid interpretations (although his French accent could use a little work). A fun-filled listen with plenty of thrills and a perfect addition to the Davenport canon. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 15). (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

From Library Journal:

In his 20th Prey novel (after Wicked Prey), Sandford continues to deviate from the pulse-pounding serial killer thrillers of the early 1990s that put Minneapolis cop Lucas Davenport on the map. Davenport still has his sharp mind, quick reflexes, and dirty mouth, but now marriage and fatherhood give him something to lose. And as head of Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, he's working with a larger cast of law enforcement agents and a wider variety of criminals. The morning that his wife, surgeon Weather Karkinnen, is set to separate conjoined twins, she sees a man who just robbed the hospital pharmacy. Davenport calls Virgil Flowers to protect Weather and help him catch the robbers before they can identify her as the witness. The bikers behind the drug heist are portrayed as petty criminals, but the doctor and hit man they're working with are slowly revealed as out-and-out sociopaths. Verdict This fast-paced crime novel with bad guys so calmly amoral will have readers dead-bolting their doors for weeks.
