Great detective yarn! Politics and power weave a tangled web. Classy and clever Lucas Davenport, working behind the scenes in order to save several political careers including the governors, must find clues to several murders tied to an upcoming election. Problem: there are none. Excellent characters, good, bad and in between. Virgil Flowers has a cameo. A thoroughly satisfying read.
Excellent. Sandford fans will be comfortable with this latest effort.
Another fantastic Lucas Davenport and that F*****g Flowers guy story. If you've read them before you'll know the reference. How he keeps putting them out there I don't know but I will keep reading them as fast as he can write them. You won't be disappointed!
John Sanford is one of my favorite authors. This book was good and kept your attention. It wasn't my favorite Lucas Davenport book, Had quite a bit of politics but it moved along and kept you guessing. I look forward to reading more of John Sanford's books.
I have read all the Lucas Davenport & Virgil Flowers books (Yes, ALL of them), & I find them stimulating and entertaining. But for some odd reason - and I know it's just me - I didn't like this book at all. I guess the current political climate has burned me to the core. I did enjoy the very end of the book, but all the political shenanigans & machinations just left a very bad taste in my mouth.
23rd in the series. Lucas Davenport gets a sticky political problem dumped on him, when Minnesota's leading candidate for the Senate is found to have child porn on his PC. The governor is sure it's a frame-up (it is), the candidate thinks his political rival is behind it (she is), and soon there's a trail of bodies. This one has a larg-ish part for the painter Kidd and his wife from Sandford's other series.
As always, action packed and suspenseful. I noted in the last book that Sandford for once didn't have Davenport kill the bad guy (someone else did), and again in this book Davenport leaves his gun in its holster. These books are much fun, and I enjoy them, but so similar I'm reduced to these little things in order to say something different about them!
another great Sandford/Delaware match, great story
According to the Daily Mail, "Delivers twists to the very last sentence." The last sentence is "Let's get a cheeseburger." I guess I'll have to read the book.
