Murder, scandal, political espionage and an extremely dangerous woman. Lucas Davenport's going to be lucky to get out of this one alive...
Lucas Davenport is investigating a vicious smear on a US senator when the trail leads to a political fixer's disappearance. Then, very troublingly, it leads to the Minneapolis police department, then, most troublingly of all, to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons. She has very definite ideas about the way the world should work, and the money, ruthlessness and sheer will to make it happen. No matter who gets in the way...

Praise for the author:
"That rare beast - a series writer who reads like a breath of fresh air" (Daily Mirror)
"An exciting, and superbly elegant demonstration of intelligent crime writing." (Guardian)
I have been a fan of Lucas Davenport from the first book. I enjoy the gravelly narration of Richard Ferrone, who owns Lucas and generally the books flow along and always thoroughly enjoyable. I didnt particularly enjoy this one, simply because of the political nature, Armerican Politics are not my favourite subject and found most of the main characters pretty obnoxious. I hope John Sandford returns to his earlier style of writing.
Another good Lucas Davenport tale. I liked this Davenport. Richard Ferones narration is all part of its charm. Its not a masterpiece of english writing but very entertaining.
