Written By: John Sandford

Narrated By: Richard Ferrone

Date: February 2013

Duration: 11 hours 54 minutes


The 'maddog' murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport--a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare--is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    I found this book very engaging. I listen to books on CD while I walk my dog and do my daily power walking. With some cd's I find my mind wandering, but not with Rules of Prey. It was a great listen.

    I didn't like the reader and that probably biased my opinion of the entire story. However, the "game" in the story was not complex, intelligent, intriguing enough to keep a lot of interest. I didn't identify with or care about the characters.

    Fantastic book! Superb story! Excellently narrated. Already have 2nd book in series in library.


    The story was haunting from the very beginning, Unforgettable, icy, blood thriller, that introduced Lucas Davenport. Narration was excellent, made the hair stand up on my neck as he described the killer. The killer was was mad, but brilliant But Davenport was his match. Excellent!!!!

  • Gary P.

    Well written thriller. Narration was good but would have been better with Minneapolis/Minnesota accent.

  • Ronald Johnson

    Great listen kept me intrigued throughout the story. Good plot already playing next one

  • Thomas H.

    The first and one of the best of the Davenport books. Second time I’ve listened to it.

  • Anna H.

    Good book but poor quality recording- lots of skipping, like a scratched record.

    Fantastic. Gripping. Excellent pace. Narrator was icing on the cake

  • Sam Denberg

    A great story. if you like the average cop catches cereal killer novel, you will most likely enjoy Rules of Prey.

  • Kim T.

    Great book. Entertained us on a 14 hour drive.

  • JK

    Narration was good but I didn't enjoy the story so much. Simply too implausible. Not going to be reading another one in the series.

  • Robert B.

    I always find John Sandford full of intrigue. Interesting listen with moral dilemma

  • April V.

    Slow to start but loved it and started the next one. Narrater was great!

    far to much foul language

  • Franz K.

    Very good story, well narrated

  • Jacquie D.

    Great story; great narration. Too bad the recording skipped many times throughout.

  • Sherry L.

    Really enjoyed this book. I downloaded the next in the series before I finished the first. The lead Lucas is a bit of a cad but you can’t help liking him. He doesn’t play by the book which I like. Great characters and storyline. Nicely narrated. The only thing I’d change in the narration is how slow the women talk, it makes them sound dumb when they are strong women.

  • A to Z

    Gives us a further glimpse into Davenport's progression when he was still a cop and before he had further moved up the food chain. More of an edge to the way he handles people - both informants and women in his life. Shows more of an ability to play cut-throat when the stakes are high. For those who enjoy this character, this book fills in a few cracks in his later development.

  • Bonnie

    Great listen. It was written quite a while ago, before the common use of cell phones but if you can overlook the out of date technology, the story is great. Keeps moving and was totally enjoyable.

  • Joseph Norton

    I have been a John Sanford fan for years and this is one of the best Lucas Davenport novels I have ever listened to. The fact that this book was written in 1989 and just recently recorded gives us a great view of Davenport in his earlier days. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
