The extraordinary new Lucas Davenport thriller from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner.
“If you haven’t read Sandford yet, you have been missing one of the great summer-read novelists of all time.”—Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
Murder, scandal, political espionage, and an extremely dangerous woman. Lucas Davenport’s going to be lucky to get out of this one alive.
Very early one morning, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he’s waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, “Hey, I think he’s breathing,” and another voice says, “Yeah? Give me the bat.” And that’s the last thing he knows.
Davenport is investigating another case 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.
Filled with John Sandford’s trademark razor-sharp plotting and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Silken Prey is further evidence for why the Cleveland Plain Dealer called the Davenport novels “a perfect series,” and Suspense Magazine wrote, “If you haven’t read any of the Prey series, you need to jump on board right this second.”

Tell the story
Interesting story - if he would only tell it without his liberal, left wing crap. There are very few authors that know how to simply tell a story. This is why I spend hours in a bookstore trying to find fiction doesn't preach their "progressive" ideologies to me.
Love all the prey books and John Sandford never disappoints. Go in order and start with the first (Rules of Prey) if you want to read this one. One of the best things about these books is 'growing' with the characters and Sandford does an amazing job of giving thoughtful and solid insight to the characters' lives.
Sandford does it again. I've read every one of the series. This one is just excellent. Now I have to wait for another. Keep it going please! The flowers books are good too.
