About this Item

Brand New Book. Lucas Davenport has a new job - a trouble-shooter on the cases that are too complicated or politically touchy for others to handle. He s married now, and a new father, all of which is fine with him: he doesn t mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. If there s one thing Lucas Davenport knows, it s that for every bit of peace you get, you have to pay - and he s waiting for the bill. It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree, in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are those of a black man and a white woman, and they re naked. Lynching is the word that everybody s trying not to say - but, as Lucas begins to discover, the murders are not, in fact, what they appear to be. And there is worse - much, much worse - to come? Filled with the rich characterization and exceptional drama that are his hallmarks, this is Sandford s most suspenseful novel yet. Bookseller Inventory # LVN9780743468695

Review:

When twelve-year-old muskrat trapper Letty West stumbles on the naked bodies of Jane Warr and Deon Cash, deep in the snowy woods of northern Minnesota, it's more than another bizarre episode in her already unusual life, as Lucas Davenport discovers in this new outing in Sandford's popular series featuring the midwestern lawman who moonlights as a computer game designer. Lucas has a new wife, a new baby, and a new job as a political troubleshooter for his old boss Rose Marie Roux, but the blunt-spoken Davenport's instructions to hush the racially charged implications of what looks suspiciously like a lynching won't deter him from whomever left Warr and Cash twisting in the wind. The well-peopled plot, involving a hot car ring, an ex-nun who smuggles cancer drugs over the Canadian border, and the usual internecine wranglings between the FBI, the local cops, and Davenport, races to a satisfying denouement, but this time it's a little girl with a difficult past and an uncertain future who lingers in the reader's mind. Fortunately, Sandford comes up with an ending that makes it all but certain that his fans will meet her again. Meanwhile, all the author's usual trademarks are on display--excellent writing, an interesting scenario, and terrific pacing. --Jane Adams
