John Sandford's Prey series continues to defy genre. Full of unflinching, relentless suspense, his novels also offer strong, well-drawn characters who grow deeper and more complex with each book. The eleventh book in his best-selling series, Easy Prey, finds Chief Lucas Davenport on the trail of two separate murderers, tied together by one victim. Lucas has dealt with his share of high profile crimes, but none have prepared him for the media storm surrounding his latest case. Two young women have been found dead after a party at a socialite's house. One of the victims is Alie'e Mason, a model on the fast-track to superstardom. While Lucas hunts for their killer, someone else begins assassinating the people closest to Alie'e. As Lucas attempts to protect her girlfriend, he finds himself drawn personally into the investigation. Richard Ferrone's reading combined with a multi-layered plot that could come straight from today's headlines is a nonstop tour de force.

"Sandford and Ferrone have deservedly been called a great team (AudioFile, Feb-97), and EASY PREY, with its perceptive writing and well-paced celebrity murder plot, is one of their best. Author and narrator are both virtuosi of mid-American speech. They give police character Lucas Davenport a laid-back, sophisticated, tough-guy persona that makes the reader forget how uncanny are his skills, his luck, and his magnetism for extraordinary women. Also, this reviewer likes Lucas as portrayed by Ferrone and doesn't want to question his cavalier attitude toward constraints on police conduct. The book's realism and some of its hero's actions may not bear close scrutiny, but who cares? It's a fine listen. K.C. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
