The Davenport books have changed over the years as Lucas has aged, and he certainly is not as active in them as he was when he was still a cop, but they are still page-turners and this one is no different. Randy Whitcomb, now a paraplegic, is out on parole and intends to get revenge on Lucas, whom he blames for his condition although Lucas did not shoot him. His plan is to kidnap Lucas' daughter Letty. Meanwhile, Lucas is working on the case of a gang of killer robbers who are hitting the Republican National Convention. Sandford expertly weaves the two storylines and then cleverly brings them together a thrilling climax. But what I enjoyed the most is the development of Letty's character - I can see her eventually growing into a series of her own!
