Twisted Prey (Lucas Davenport #28) Reviews
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
John Sanford is the best writer around today. He has been one of my favorite authors since the very first Prey novel I read. I can sincerely say that his writing just gets better and better every year. I loved this book and I especially loved the ending. I don't know if I can wait another year for his next book to come out.
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

Fortunately, they aren’t completely successful in their assignment to eliminate another senator but they draw th ...more
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
Fantastic! My favorite "Prey!" 10 of 10 stars!
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
