Silken Prey
At 1:15 a.m, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he's waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, "Hey, I think he's breathing," and another voice says, "Yeah? Give me the bat." And that's the last thing he ever knows. Lucas Davenport is investigating another case when the trail leads to the man's disappearance, then--very troublingly--to the Minneapolis police department itself, and then--most troublingly of all--to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons. She has very definite ideas about the way the world should work, the money, ruthlessness, and sheer will to make it happen. No matter who gets in the way.

Very solid work by Sandford. Not the best book but good enough to keep you entertained and reading until the end

Surprisingly good (after the severe disapointment with his "Phantom Prey"). Really does a nice job on the plotting this time (and it makes sense) and includes the hacker characters, Kidd & wife-the-professional-burglar to add to the story. Love the inclusion of the psychopathic politician, a little reality never hurts a novel!

This latest Lucas Davenport novel is pretty good. The plot line is twisty, things get out of control, and not everything comes out OK. Hard to put it down!

While I 'm a John Sandford fan, and
have read some of the Lucas Davenport Prey books, I 'm really a Virgil Flowers ("that f Flowers") fan. Can't wait for the next Virgil book, supposed to be released in Oct. Having said that, the Prey books are good reads, I just like Virgil better.

John Sandford & Lucas Davenport at their best! Devious plot and characters, suspense, plot moves along briskly, altogether a rewarding read.
