Sandford's well-known Prey mysteries feature state police Detective Lucas Davenport. This time the setting is Duluth, and the iron mining towns of the Mesabi Range. The action begins with the murder of a Russian merchant seaman on the Duluth docks. More murders follow, and a mixed group of good guys, including police, sheriffs, the FBI, and a female Russian investigator, set out to solve them. After 12 Prey novels, Richard Ferrone has the drill down pat. His pacing is excellent; it keeps the listener involved in the action and conveys the ambience that the events create. He's particularly good with female voices, and he does well with the Russian agent speaking accented English. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
