My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is not my favorite Lucas Davenport book – let’s just get that out of the way.
I love Lucas Davenport. John Sandford has created a very likeable character: funny, debonair, smart, (probably) handsome, great at his job, sarcastic. In this book he is recently retired and is called upon to investigate threats to a presidential hopeful’s campaign. Although there is action and people dying left and right, this is just not a compelling read. After getting on the right track, Lucas’s hunt to find the perpetrators was tiresome. Regarding the threat, I was more worried about the effect of Marlys Purdy’s actions on her granddaughter than I was about Michaela Bowden’s campaign.
