Murder, scandal, political espionage, and an extremely dangerous woman. Lucas Davenport’s going to be lucky to get out of this one alive....
Very early one morning, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he’s waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, "Hey, I think he’s breathing." And another voice says, "Yeah? Give me the bat." And that’s the last thing he knows.
Davenport is investigating another case when the trail leads to the man’s disappearance, then - very troublingly - 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.
"If you haven’t read Sandford yet, you have been missing one of the great summer-read novelists of all time." (Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly)

Politics, Pornography, and Murder

Still my favorite combo of author and reader
Classic Lucas Davenport.
Silken Prey harks back to the early books in the Prey series when Davenport was beginning to emerge as a master blender of political 'management' and police procedure. This particular book actually calls to mind the recent Netflix TV series "House of Cards." In a world where unscrupulous-ness is a high art, Lucas seems rather angelic. :-)
He IS Lucas Davenport for me. In fact (maybe I shouldn't say this) I try to avoid other books read by Ferrone so I can preserve this illusion.
Lucas Davenport Is Not Mark Harmon!
Thanks to John (Camp) Sandford for continuing to write this series, in tandem with Virgil Flowers in the fall. I hope you never get bored. And outlive me.
