Silken Prey by John Sandfod

Silken Prey is John Sandford’s newest book. It stars Lucas Davenport, star detective of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, (“BCA”).  Davenport has his work cut out for him this time. Murder, child porn, and politics all mixed up into a first class mess that he has to untangle.

(I love palmettos. We don’t have too many of them in Oklahoma.)

Along the way he has to contend with a  female bodyguard who invites him to bed, a couple ex special forces body guards who are not quite that inviting and a Minnesota gubernatorial candidate who will literally do anything to get elected.

(Convenient swings along the trails of Orange Beach.)

Check out Sanders web site for a better synopsis of the story. The bottom line is that this is a very good book, very readable, and not quite enthralling cuz at the end things get kind of confused and messy and loses its coherence. It is still a great beach read though. I give it four stars out of five.

(You should have seen how white I was before I got my tan.)

From the Redneck Riviera, I’m trying to singlehandedly keep all the sunscreen manufacturers prosperous. And failing.

    it was really good … i love this series and what i love most is that Lucas has grown/character has developed from a thug to a real man with a sharp sense of humor .. Sanders’ adding to the mix his other series/character of Kidd the computer hacker/artist was fun

    Finally, we see what you’ve been hiding from us, SPB is now officially the tallest of the Yogi clan. That’s some tan you have Yogi, and here’s me thinking you’re deliberately trying to avoid the sun with That Hat. It’s almost working, but not quite.
    Book sounds good and a new author for me too.

    We’re waiting until the sun gets really high and hot before we venture out. Headed to the lake in August. Don’t use up all of the sunscreen, cause I’m going to need plenty. Have blessed week-end.

    Watch out for that sunscreen, Yogi – the chemicals might be worse than the burn! Bob has read many of Sandfords’ books and likes them. He is now reading everything by Stephen White who is from CO and writes about Boulder and surrounds. Give him a look. Also, wanted to ask if you’ve read The Spark? I finished it when we were in AZ – an interesting memoir about the author’s son, an autistic prodigy.
