Be still my soul! Lucas Davenport is back with his 28th case. This time he’s determined to take down a U.S. Senator who he is convinced has tried to assassinate on of her fellow senators from Minnesota. Davenport is now with the U.S. Marshals service and brings a couple of his fellow marshals along to D.C. as backup. Almost immediately, there is an attempt on his life followed by a car accident back home in Minnesota that nearly ends his wife’s life. With the pressure mounting Davenport must quickly unravel this very complex and twisted plot.
A friend turned me on to this series a few years ago and I have been hooked ever since. That being said, I haven’t read one for a while so picking up this book felt like visiting an old friend. Lucas Davenport continues to be charming and thoughtful in his personal life, while also being a hard as nails when it comes to criminals. This story is a very complex knot of politicians, arms manufacturers and ex-military bad guys. And just when you think that progress is being made something happens that sets the investigation back again. All these twists and turns work seamlessly together though to make a really compelling thriller. This is book 28 in the series and one of my favorites so far. I highly recommend!
