Twisted Prey (Lucas Davenport #28) Reviews
Can this possibly be the 28th book in the Prey series? I know I haven't missed many, so guess that makes me an oldie (but goodie). And so is the series; even if "star" character Lucas Davenport, now a federal marshal, seems to be a bit more laid back these days, there's plenty of action here that kept me reading until my Kindle battery insisted it needed a recharge.
Happily - and in one case, unhappily - a few other characters make return appearances in this one. There's Weather, Lucas's surgeon ...more
John Sanford always writes an enthralling and unique story. Twisted Prey is no exception. For those of us who have followed Lucas Davenport since his first outing, reading another installment is like hanging out with a friend who happens to be a cop. In this instance Lucas is not working for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the B.C.A. but for the U.S. Marshall Service.
He is on the track of a doer who has attempted to assassinate a U.S. Senator. What happens next is why the book is ...more
One of my very favorite protagonists, Lucas Davenport, is contacted by a Senator who was involved in a car accident that killed his female companion. Although the authorities have ruled it accidental he is convinced he was deliberately targeted as he was previously the victim of an assassination attempt by his political rival, Taryn Grant herself now a US Senator. Faithful readers will remember Ms Grant from Silken Prey when she was introduced as a wealthy, narcissistic ambitious sociopath, back ...more
SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW WITH PLOT SPOILERS FOLLOWS:
I guess 2018 is a banner year for novelists who've been at it for 30 years; Michael Connelly invents a new, female lead character for a new series, and John Sandford makes the 28th instalment of The Prey series his finest work ever, in my humble opiinion. Who'd a thought it, what with the paltry reviews and semi-harsh criticism I've slung his way over the last decade? John's 74 now, and I can't help but believe he's finally accepted the fact t ...more
I love the way Lucas Davenport’s mind works. I certainly would never to be on his bad side.
Still enjoy. Easy, comfortable read. Love a book that makes me laugh out loud!!
I received a free advance copy of this from NetGalley for review.
Me in 2013: “I love John Sandford novels, but this Silken Prey seems a bit outlandish. Could a rich person with a narcissistic personality disorder who engages in criminal behavior really hope to win an election to an important position in the US government? That seems highly unlikely.”
Me on Election Night 2016: “Why didn’t we heed John Sandford’s warning?!?”
Back in Silken Prey Lucas Davenport tangled with a crazy woman named Taryn ...more
Back when he was still at the Minnesota BCA, Lucas Davenport tangled with sociopath Taryn Grant, who while running for the Senate, framed her rival (Porter Smalls) for child pornography and killed a few people to cover it up. Lucas cleared Smalls, but did not have evidence to arrest Grant, who was elected. Senator Smalls is coming back from his cabin with a female political supporter/girlfriend when a pickup runs them off the road, killing her. When the police cannot find evidence of another veh ...more
