Davenport makes even politics fun!

Silken Prey ebook

Silken Prey ebook

I love this series and I particularly love the main character because he is smart, sexy, a family guy, a cop who drives a Porsche, and ultimately the coolest guy in law enforcement by a mile. Davenport does what he does because he likes it and he has a clearly defined code and sense of right and wrong-he also sees the shades of gray. The writing as always, flows smoothly, the descriptions of the people and places are vivid, and the author manages to make lifelike even the politicians that inhabit this book. Through this long running series we have come to know the characters (and they are that), that inhabit Davenport's world and it's like visiting with old friends when they take part in solving the political mystery/intrigue/thriller/suspense that takes place in a compressed period of time before election day. Davenport's friends are a motley crew of misfits but they get the job done every time. This book is recommended to all who like a smart mystery that is complex at times has many twists and turns and is hard to put down. I know that the author has said that Davenport will retire at some point, but he gives the reader so much enjoyment and downright fun I hope he goes on forever.

    I have read every book in the Prey series.

    I thought they had gotten a bit commercial lately but this one makes up for it.

    I especially enjoyed the expansion of the Kidd character.

    Buy. Read. Enjoy

    I have read all of Sandfords Prey series and have enjoyed all of
    Them. I just wish that Sandford would stop the liberal garbage the last few books have been more and more liberal in your face, I would have thought that a great writer would be above that.

    This is a fascinating tale of how easily politics can get dirty and run out of control. Lucas Davenport, an agent of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is asked by the State Governor to find out why child pornography was found on the office computer of the leading Senate candidate only days before the election.

    Porter Smalls, a Republican running for US Senator is well ahead in the opinion polls when his campaign is sabotaged by child pornography being found on his office computer. Despite their opposite political views, the Governor believes that, despite some personal shortcomings, Smalls is incapable of having such an interest.

    What Davenport doesn't know at the beginning is that Bob Tubbs, a political operative who can change sides like a chameleon for the right money, has disappeared. Davenport soon gets down into the mire of a thriller with an explosive combination of murder, money, blackmail and politics.

    Davenport gets help from a notorious computer whiz, ICE who puts him in touch with Lucas Kidd who is a strange combination of artist and computer "expert". Davenport also becomes quickly aware that the Democratic candidate, the attractive and wealthy Taryn Grant, has an oversized ego and ambition that could catapult her into dirty tricks. I have to admit that I really didn't know the detailed explanation of a narcissist until Grant's character was exposed.

    This thriller makes Davenport explore the grey side of politics and the contemporary world of technology to solve the case and reveals an ugly background to the machinations behind an important election. It is an interesting twist to the Davenport series of thrillers and is well recommended if you want to see things from a different aspect.

    I've read all of Sandford's books and always thought Winter Prey was his best. Silken Prey is better. It took two days to read, but never let up. His plots are just so well thought out. Sandford is fast becoming my number one author. I am particularly impressed with his ability to continue to write really good novels that never fail.

    Finished this book in one sitting. Not my favorite Sanford novel. I have read them all. But was nice to visit with all my favotite characters. Not as fast paced as most of his books. Still a good read for a boring day. It would be nice if next book expanded on the Kidd and Luellen hook up. A nice caper sounds like a lot of fun.

    I have read every John Sanford novel written and I love them all. The Prey series is fun and Lucas Davenports is my idea if a great cop. I also enjoy the Virgil Flowers books as well.

  • Maryanne Holcomb says:

    The Prey series is one of the best fiction series of modern times. Silken Prey continues in the same tradition. Sandford continues to write at his high quality.
