Publisher's Summary

For Maddog, the killer who had Minneapolis in a grip of chilled terror, satisfaction came from the thrill of the contest. After each grisly murder he would leave behind one of the rules he had devised: Never kill anyone you know. Never have a motive. Never follow a discernible pattern. He was no textbook psychopath. But Lieutenant Lucas Davenport was no ordinary detective. To bring an end to Maddog's trail of death, he would have to play by his own rules.

A good mixture of fiction and reality

Would you listen to Rules of Prey again? Why?

Maybe. There were some details about the police work on the street worth listening again. There's also some interesting twist of the events.

What did you like best about this story?

The lead character Lucas couldn't be real, but the author did a good job mixing him into the realistic background. So even though it is a fiction, it didn't feel fake. The story gave us a lovely character that we could like but not sound like a prince from fairytale.

What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

It wasn't bad but there's some curious sudden stop and inhale between sentences. Not a big deal but occasionally got me out of story as I would think it's intentional yet it turned out not.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

After police screwed up the ambush in the journalist's home, Lucas was low and depressed. He beat himself up for the lost and gave up. But another detective came in, asked Lucas to follow a lead with him. That lead turned out well. But it's a bonus and a push for the plot. I like it because everyone has his own moment of downtime, it might only take one friend care enough to ask to get one back on track. The person might not even close to us but they come when needed. I wish I would be more grateful to my friends for they care.

Any additional comments?

If you watch TV episodes like Criminal Minds, the plot would be standard serial killer story even the motive behind it. I am not an expert in the field so can't say how real it was. But it does reduce the feeling of novelty.
