John Sandford is back with Twisted Prey, book #28 in the Prey series, and boy has he scored a winner with this one. I hate to use cliches, but I literally could not put this one down, and read it very fast, considering my health. This book simply amazed me.

Lucas Davenport is a U.S. Marshall now, and he is called into action by an old friend, Senator Porter Smalls. Smalls is returning to Washington, DC, with his associate and lover Cecily Whitehead after a relaxing getaway at Small’s West Virgina

I think John Sandford has outdone himself with this book. Where he shines is in getting the details exactly right. Lots of dry humor here, especially when it comes to DC and politics.

There’s a wonderful sense of tension throughout. Even though Davenport knows who’s behind the foul play, that doesn’t mean he can prove it for a court of law. Watching him put the pieces of the puzzle together kept me riveted. You can see the ending coming, but it was the perfect ending.

I have to give Sandford cre

Lucas Davenport is back and working as a US Marshall. But he is going to find himself investigating a previous enemy, Senator Taryn Grant. Lucas was never able to prove three murders were committed by Grant due to her money and status.

Senator Porter Smalls is involved with a car bomb that killed his driver and almost himself. Smalls has a feeling that Grant tried to kill him so he calls in Davenport to investigate. Of course Davenport is eager to prove this and starts calling in people to help

Twisted Prey is a perfunctory and disposable entry into John Sandford’s usually stellar Lucas Davenport mystery series. Consider it the foil-lined wrapper your takeout hamburger comes in. Or better yet, imagine you have just driven your hungry self to the nearest Shake Shack (it’s easy if you try) and ordered a double Shack Stack and a large black and white shake. You unwrap your burger only to dismay at finding inside just another wrapper! You wanted a Shack Stack, not some throwaway paper. Dis ...more

I believe this is book 28 in the Prey series, and what a fantastic addition to the series this is. Like me, many of you have followed Lucas Davenport from the beginning and he keeps getting better with age. With each Prey book I feel like I'm back with a dear old friend. There are quite a few humorous parts where I actually was laughing out loud, even though the topic of the book was very serious. Don't wait so long to come back to your friends, Lucas.

Can this possibly be the 28th book in the Prey series? I know I haven't missed many, so guess that makes me an oldie (but goodie). And so is the series; even if "star" character Lucas Davenport, now a federal marshal, seems to be a bit more laid back these days, there's plenty of action here that kept me reading until my Kindle battery insisted it needed a recharge.

Happily - and in one case, unhappily - a few other characters make return appearances in this one. There's Weather, Lucas's surgeon

Competent, by-the-numbers read; but dry and not overly compelling. Davenport just isn't fun anymore, and I find I much prefer the Virgil Flowers books these days. The ending was anticlimactic and unsatisfactory. Maybe it's time to wrap this series up...

TWISTED PREY by John Sandford is the 28th book in the Lucas Davenport series, and Lucas is again called into a case involving Senator Portis Smalls, who believes a vehicle accident near his cabin that causes the death of the woman driving him was in fact an attempt on his life, although there is no proof to back up his claims.

Taryn Grant, who is the Senator from a previous Prey book, is who Smalls suspects, and whom Lucas agrees would be a likely suspect based on her past ruthless behavior.
