Twisted Prey (Lucas Davenport #28) Reviews
Fantastic! My favorite "Prey!" 10 of 10 stars!
It's a toss-up if I love Lucas Davenport or Virgil Flowers the most. But -- in this book, Lucas was outstanding. He is wonderful as a Marshal and this case was just fascinating. There were SO MANY bad guys, but all directed in some way by the worst guy of all -- an old enemy of Lucas. He gets help from fellow-marshals Bob and Rae and together, they meet all the many challenges thrown at them. John Sandford has such a way with words -- so clever, so funny, so insightful. I would not miss one of h ...more
Lucas, you dirty dirty dog, you...I love you so much! Another Prey book that I started one day and finished the next, finding it very easy to want to pick up where I left off and harder still to put down. I found the 'S' sink thing a bit far fetched, but at the end of the day I don't really give a crap.
I was so happy to see more of Rae and Bob.
I really worried about having Davenport in the middle of politics, not that Sandford has ever been quiet in that regards, but having Davenport as a US M ...more
Pretty good Davenport procedural from Sandford. He brings back characters from previous novels, both good guys and bad guy. Asked by Porter Small, senator from Minnesota, to investigate an attempt on his life, Davenport gets involved with the operators from a company that supplies private military contractors. From there Davenport brings in the FBI when he finds evidence of illegal weapons shipments by that contractor. All in all a pretty good read. And, as with all of Sandford's novels, it real ...more
Thank you Netgalley and the Penguin Group/G P Putman & Sons for this ARC.
I love Lucas as a US Marshall. He seems to really enjoy it as well. Seems like there's less bureaucratic red tape for him (no employee overtime sheets to approve) yet he still has the autonomy to work a case as he sees fit and the ability to get the resources he needs. Twisted Prey was the usual fast wild ride one expects from John Sandford with the usual suspects and supporting characters. I'm still giggling at the tho ...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
After 28 books, the Lucas Davenport series is still going strong. This was a very enjoyable read. Lucas is asked to investigate the attempted assassination of a U. S. Senator, and he calls on Bob and Rae for assistance. Along with local law enforcement and the FBI, the U. S. Marshals follow leads and try to put together a case. There are several deaths as the investigation is thwarted time and time again.
Both Virgil (of “that fuckin' Flowers” fame) and Kidd make minor appearances in this book. G ...more
Lucas Davenport always get his man.... well, what if he is no longer in the Minnesota Bureau of Apprehension? What if he is not in Minnesota, but Washington DC? What if he is not after a man, but a woman? Fast paced, interesting, with a touch of elegant clothes.
