If you like your cops with a Midwest twist, drinking Leinenkugel, fishing for muskie, and putting jam on bagels, Minneapolis investigator Lucas Davenport is your man.

Midwestern style meets murder in this heart-pounding series from New York Times best-selling author John Sanford. A tough-yet-sophisticated cop, Lucas Davenport sometimes twists the rules as he confronts druggies, kidnappers, killers, corrupt policemen, and the occasional politician.

Richard Ferrone narrates the complete series, magnifying a wide range of human emotion. This series is a classic example of great storytelling made even better by the performer’s talents. Ferrone carries listeners through many plots and twists, never losing the way - and staying true to Davenport’s thoroughly Midwestern character.

Born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, John Sandford was a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the St. Paul Pioneer-Press before writing thrillers. Like his character Lucas Davenport, he fishes and hunts. He is also deeply interested in archaeology, painting, and photography.

The Lucas Davenport series has four Earphones Award-winning installments: Eyes of Prey, Golden Prey, Sudden Prey, and Winter Prey. Virgil Flowers, another John Sandford protagonist with a series of his own, makes an appearance in Invisible Prey and Storm Prey. Certain Prey was made into a USA original movie, starring Mark Harmon as Lucas Davenport.
