Silken Prey

A Novel

By John Sandford, 1944 February 23-

A New York Times Bestselling Author Murder, scandal, political espionage, and an extremely dangerous woman. Lucas Davenport's going to be lucky to get out of this one alive. A Minnesota political fixer has hit the jackpot — or so he thinks. Hired to take down an incumbent U.S. senator with a vicious smear to open the way for an ambitious, take-no-prisoners heiress who sees the Senate as a stepping-stone, he decides his payoff should be larger. Instead, he gets only a small one — 9 millimeters in the heart. Lucas Davenport is investigating the smear when the trail eventually leads to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons.

Summary: At 1:15 a.m, 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 ever knows. Lucas Davenport is investigating another case when the trail leads to the man's disappearance, then--very troublingly--to the Minneapolis police department itself, and 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, the money, ruthlessness, and sheer will to make it happen. No matter who gets in the way.
