Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Murder, scandal, political espionage, and an extremely dangerous woman . . . The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from the #1 New York Times– bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner.

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, and the money, ruthlessness, and sheer will to make it happen.

No matter who gets in the way.

Review:

"Sandford's intrepid detective, Lucas Davenport, of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, is drawn into a political mystery filled with intrigue, corruption, and murder. With only a few days until the next election, incumbent Republican Senator Porter Smalls faces a potentially career ending scandal when child pornography is discovered on his personal computer. With Smalls professing his innocence, stating that the incriminating photos were planted to kill his reelection bid, Davenport is brought in to investigate. What follows is an intricate, multilayered story that pits Davenport against one of the most callous villains he has ever encountered. Richard Ferrone is undoubtedly the voice of this popular audio series, having provided the narration for all 23 of Sandford's Prey books. From the opening scene — a truly chilling kidnapping and murder — to the last paragraph, it is clear that Ferrone knows this material and these characters inside and out. His gruff, confident reading keeps the story moving at a smooth, steady pace, and he delivers dialogue with a clear, natural style. Fans will not be disappointed with this latest collaboration between writer and reader. A Putnam hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
