Silken Prey by John Sandford
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The twenty-third novel in Sandford’s Lucas Davenport Prey series and this Pulitzer prize winning writer is as fresh and thrilling as ever. This time it’s political intrigue that Davenport must solve when unpleasant child pornography is found on a Senator’s computer and Davenport must determine the truth behind how it got there whilst avoiding the Machiavellian machinations of seriously dirty politics. But of course things are never as simple as they first look and soon Davenport is uncovering danger and corruption at the heart of the political establishment.

If you like John Sandford you might also like to read books by Harlan Coben, Lee Child and Thomas H Cook.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. John Sandford has been one of the most reliable practitioners of the crime /thriller novel for years, with a prodigious output notable above all else for its consistency. In an era of overstuffed, overwritten crime novels, Sandford is perhaps most celebrated for the fact that his work is pared to the bone, the narrative serving no greater function than to keep the reader turning the pages. And the latter activity is precisely what Silken Prey does, demonstrating that the author’s skills in this area are undimmed.

Synopsis

Silken Prey by John Sandford

Murder, scandal, political espionage and an extremely dangerous woman. Lucas Davenport's going to be lucky to get out of this one alive. A Minnesota political fixer has hit the jackpot - or so he thinks. Hired to take down the incumbent U.S. senator with a vicious smear, to open the way for an ambitious, take-no-prisoners heiress who sees the Senate as merely a stepping-stone, he decides his payoff should be larger. The blackmail demand should yield some pretty large numbers, he thinks. Instead, he gets only a small one - 9 millimeters, to be exact. In the heart. Davenport is investigating the smear 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. No matter who gets in the way.
