I used to be a big fan of the Lucas Davenport books by John Sandford.
The long running series started back in 1989 with Rules of Prey.
I’ve not bothered with some of the recent entries in the series but I think I’ll get back into it with the new paperback Twisted Prey.
Lucas Davenport confronts an old nemesis, now a powerful U.S. senator, in the thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling Prey series. Find out why Stephen King calls John Sandford ‘one of the great novelists of all time’!
Lucas Davenport had crossed paths with her before.
A rich psychopath, Taryn Grant had run successfully for the U.S. Senate, where Lucas had predicted she’d fit right in. He was also convinced that she’d been responsible for three murders, though he’d never been able to prove it. Once a psychopath had gotten that kind of rush, though, he or she often needed another fix, so he figured he might be seeing her again.
He was right. A federal marshal now, with a very wide scope of investigation, he’s heard rumors that Grant has found her seat on the Senate intelligence committee, and the contacts she’s made from it, to be very…useful. Pinning those rumors down was likely to be just as difficult as before, and considerably more dangerous.
But they had unfinished business, he and Grant. One way or the other, he was going to see it through to the end.
Twisted Prey is published today, 18 April 2019, in paperback by Simon & Schuster in the UK.
