After the events in Gathering Prey, Lucas Davenport finds himself in a very unusual situation: he is no longer employed by the Minnesota BCA. His friend the governor is just cranking up a presidential campaign, though, and he invites Lucas to come along as part of his campaign staff.
'Should be fun!' he says, and it kind of is - until they find they have a shadow: an armed man intent on killing the governor...and anyone who gets in the way.
"If you haven’t read Sandford yet, you have been missing one of the great summer-read novelists of all time." (Stephen King)
"Sandford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers. His writing and the appeal of his lead character are as fresh as ever." (The Huffington Post)

Shallow Plot leads to inevitable disappointment
As an avid and dedicated listener to all of John Sandford's novels, I was non-plussed by the shallow and contrived plot for this latest installment of the Lucas Davenport series. In short, LD -who is now freelancing - is engaged to protect a female presidential candidate in the election run up. Threats have surfaced that someone wants the candidate dead and it's LD's job to find them and avert the assassination. Hmmm. I've just written a plot that has been written a thousand times before and in this particular case, there aren't any twists and turns to change that template from the mundane to the interesting.Hence the reason for the low rating.
