Description

Pulitzer Prize-winner John Sandford's tenth Prey novel is every bit as fresh and as riveting as the first. In this latest addition to the series, the inimitable Lucas Davenport faces a daunting adversary unlike any he has met before. Clara Rinker is the best hitwoman in the business. An attractive, well-spoken southern woman, she does her job, collects her money, and disappears. But when a prominent defense attorney hires her for a hit in Minnesota, her life gets complicated. A witness survives, and she's on Lucas Davenport's turf. Now she must use her superior cunning and intelligence to eliminate loose ends, and Lucas is the most worrisome loose end of all. Gifted narrator Richard Ferrone has enhanced all ten of Sanford's gripping novels with his own brand of unrelenting energy. Under his spell, the brilliant characters and nonstop action contrive to keep you up into the late hours of the night.

      • premium: True
      • source: Publisher's Weekly
      • content:

        May 3, 1999
        For all his brooding, Minneapolis cop Lucas Davenport lacks the charisma of, say, Robert B. Parker's Spenser or James Patterson's Alex Cross. The vast popularity of the Prey novels is probably due, then, not so much to this dependable hero as to Sandford's clever plotting, sure pacing and fully rounded villains--as well as his smart prose. As if acknowledging his series' hero's unflashy demeanor, Sandford, in his 10th Prey book (after Secret Prey), allows two gleefully unrecalcitrant female antagonists to steal the show from Davenport. Clara Rinker's life as a murderer and mob hit woman begins when she is raped at age 16 and beats her assailant dead with a baseball bat. Years later, the other femme fatale, sociopathic Minneapolis defense lawyer Carmel Loan, hires Rinker to kill the wife of property attorney Hale Allen, whom Carmel desires; within days, she has Hale in bed. The storyline spools out as a cat-and-mouse among the women and Davenport, with the villainesses dominating the action, sometimes in tangential scenes. When the junkie who connected Carmel to Rinker blackmails the pair, for instance, Carmel tortures him with an electric drill as Rinker watches. The action doesn't always wash: Davenport tumbles to Carmel's involvement too easily, and Carmel's ferocious response to being framed by Davenport redefines the term "over the top." The play between the two women, who bond like sisters, is as fascinating as the courtship of venomous lizards, and the novel's background hum--comprised of various amatory rustlings, forensic and legal ploys, and maneuvers among cops, FBI agents, mobsters and the killers--is rich in authentic detail. While not the pseudonymous Sandford's best, (he is Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp) this is a swift, satisfying entry in a series with long, muscular legs. 300,000 first printing; $300,000 ad/promo; BOMC main selection; author tour. (May) FYI: Mind Prey was adapted into a TV movie, John Sandford's Mind Prey, which aired on ABC in March .

      • content: This production of Sandford's latest in his popular series featuring Minneapolis police detective Lucas Davenport is vivid and entertaining. Davenport is facing a formidable adversary: hit woman Clara Rinker, hired by local attorney Carmel Loan to kill her lover's wife. With his pleasant and malleable voice, Eric Conger is at ease portraying women, regional intonations, and even (chillingly) the all-too-real screams of a torture victim. His enjoyment of his work shows in the banter between the cops and in the battles Davenport wages with Loan. Perfect pacing and on-target emotions enhance the suspense. Unsettling sound effects of the various weapons make the violence more immediate. Irresistible. M.A.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
