Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Letty Davenport, the brilliant and tenacious adopted daughter of Lucas Davenport, takes the investigative reins in the newest thriller from #1 bestselling author John Sandford. By age twenty-four, Letty Davenport has seen more action and uncovered more secrets than many law enforcement professionals. Now a recent Stanford grad with a master's in economics, she's restless and bored in a desk job for U.S. Senator Colles. Letty's ready to quit, but her skills have impressed Colles, and he offers her a carrot: feet-on-the-ground investigative work, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security. Several oil companies in Texas have reported thefts of crude, Colles tells her. He isn't so much concerned with the oil as he is with the money: who is selling the oil, and what are they doing with the profits? Rumor has it that a fairly ugly militia group, led by a woman known only as Lorelai, might be involved. Colles wants to know if the money is going to them, and if so, what they're planning. Letty is partnered with a DHS investigator, John Kaiser, and they head to Texas. When the case quickly turns deadly, they know they're on the track of something bigger. Lorelai and her group have set in motion an explosive plan, and the clock is ticking down.

    After more than 30 novels in the Prey series, starring the wily and obliquely funny Minnesota cop Lucas Davenport, and 13 more featuring Davenport's colleague Virgil Flowers, Sandford adds another protagonist to his team, Davenport's 24-year-old stepdaughter, smart-mouthed Letty, here relieved from her dull job as an aide to a DC. politician by an assignment to investigate oil theft in Texas. She's assigned a partner/bodyguard, DHS agent John Kaiser, and as they banter their way across the Texas landscape where "the sun poured down like melted butter," readers are treated to Sandford's well-crafted prose, conversational but never chatty and charged with boisterous humor. A cop surveying a bloody crime scene exults that it's enabled him to connect with the DC. fellow who doles out grant assistance to law enforcement, "for free!" Revelations about oil theft lead to a militia, "hapless goofs with guns," and a spectacular confrontation, automatic weapons and Blackhawks at the Tex-Mex border. A top-line thriller from one of the genre's heavy hitters. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
