Book Description

When twelve-year-old muskrat trapper Letty West stumbles on the naked bodies of Jane Warr and Deon Cash, deep in the snowy woods of northern Minnesota, its more than another bizarre episode in her already unusual life, as Lucas Davenport discovers in this new outing in Sandfords popular series featuring the midwestern lawman who moonlights as a computer game designer. Lucas has a new wife, a new baby, and a new job as a political troubleshooter for his old boss Rose Marie Roux, but the blunt-spoken Davenports instructions to hush the racially charged implications of what looks suspiciously like a lynching wont deter him from whomever left Warr and Cash twisting in the wind. The well-peopled plot, involving a hot car ring, an ex-nun who smuggles cancer drugs over the Canadian border, and the usual internecine wranglings between the FBI, the local cops, and Davenport, races to a satisfying denouement, but this time its a little girl with a difficult past and an uncertain future who lingers in the readers mind. Fortunately, Sandford comes up with an ending that makes it all but certain that his fans will meet her again. Meanwhile, all the authors usual trademarks are on display--excellent writing, an interesting scenario, and terrific pacing. --Jane AdamsLucas Davenport has a new job - a trouble-shooter on the cases that are too complicated or politically touchy for others to handle. Hes married now, and a new father, all of which is fine with him: he doesnt mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. If theres one thing Lucas Davenport knows, its that for every bit of peace you get, you have to pay - and hes waiting for the bill. It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree, in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are those of a black man and a white woman, and theyre naked. ""Lynching"" is the word that everybodys trying not to say - but, as Lucas begins to discover, the murders are not, in fact, what they appear to be. And there is worse - much, much worse - to come...
