I am a newcomer to the Prey series, and have not been able to read the series in order, but I have enjoyed the series books I have read. Overall, I liked Storm Prey. While dealing with serious subject matter, Sandford manages to inject some humor and makes the characters interesting and individual. The only problem I had with the book is a bit of a nitpicker, in that when a cop was talking about hand grenades, he said, "People are supposed to throw these things - and they weigh almost a pound. Most guys couldn't throw them a hundred feet, in an open field. They get maybe thirty, thirty-five yards, unless they're really strong." Last time I checked, thirty to thirty-five yards is ninety to one hundred five feet. I know, nitpicking, but little details like that bug me. Otherwise, I enjoyed the read and didn't want to put the book down.
I think I am finally burned out on Sanford, too much gore and his cops are now incompetents who let the bad guys escape and continue their mayhem. I know it is just fiction but try to make it believable, you won a Pulitzer for crying out loud!
It was entertaining, definitely had the Sandford style
enjoy all his books, this one was hard to put down
Storm Prey is a poorly written book in my opinion. The plot is weak and the characters have unrealized potential. The excessive use of profanity and unnecessary violence makes the book barely tolerable. It seems unfair to dismiss an author based on one poorly written novel, but I don't think I could stomach another book like this.
Storm Prey is a Lucas Davenport thriller. I enjoyed this book, I read it in 1 1/2 days. There's lots going on- a drug robbery in a hospital, multiple murders, multiple murderers, kidnapping, and on a good note, and an operation on conjoined twins. Lots of twists and turns in this novel.
John Sandford has continued his series with an excellent followup. It's amazing how he has wriiten about 19 Lucas Daveport books and apart from Shadow Prey they've all been absolutely wondeful!
It's going to be a sad day when the last Davenport book comes out...
