Description

Lucas Davenport investigates a vitriolic blog that seems to be targeting the children of U.S. politicians in the latest thriller by #1 New York Times-bestselling author John Sandford.

The daughter of a U.S. Senator is monitoring her social media presence when she finds a picture of herself on a strange blog. And there are other pictures . . . of the children of other influential Washington politicians, walking or standing outside their schools, each identified by name. Surrounding the photos are texts of vicious political rants from a motley variety of radical groups.

It's obviously alarming--is there an unstable extremist tracking the loved ones of powerful politicians with deadly intent? But when the FBI is called in, there isn't much the feds can do. The anonymous photographer can't be pinned down to one location or IP address, and more importantly, at least to the paper-processing bureaucrats, no crime has actually been committed. With nowhere else to turn, influential Senators decide to call in someone who can operate outside the FBI's constraints: Lucas Davenport.

    I didn’t even read this book, but knowing this book came out in 2020 and seeing the reviews about how he incorporated politics into this novel, I won’t even bother wasting my time reading it.

    OMG Sandford has joined the group of some of my favorite authors who feel it is important to express their political views. I made it as far as page 249 and had to stop reading. I’ve read all the Davenport and Flowers novels and this experience has been very disappointing. I wish I could get my money back. From now on I’m going to read the reviews to make sure I’m not reading a political statement.

    Worst book in the series. Pandering to who knows who. What’s next ? defund the BCA. Sanford mailed this one in. No thought given, very insulting to his base.

    I find it hard to believe that John Sandford wrote this book. I have read very novel ever written by Sandford and always hated to see them end. I could not wait for this one to be over. It was a waste of time and money. Maybe John Sandford was hacked and a college freshman wrote this using his name. Horrible book...maybe time for Lucas and Sandford both to retire.
  • Liberal rant disguised as a book

    Keep your politics to yourself, Mr. Camp. We get enough BS from other sources.
  • Not his usual

    Besides the fact I’ve always enjoyed his books, there is no reason I completed reading the entire book.
  • Not his best work

    Lucas is one of my favorite fictional characters of all time and I have loved the Prey and the authors other series but this was the first one where the politics of the author really interferes with the plot/story. It felt like an anti-conservative diatribe as much as a fictional story. It felt like a political commercial. His usual amazing plot seemed mailed in, and seemed only to service his politics, not the story.
