Silken Prey

John Sandford. Putnam, $27.95 (416p) ISBN 978-0-399-15931-2
Governor Elmer Henderson hands Lucas Davenport a political hot potato in bestseller Sandford’s intriguing 23rd thriller featuring the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agent (after 2012’s Stolen Prey). Incumbent Republican Sen. Porter Smalls had a slight lead for reelection, until a campaign volunteer accidentally discovered child porn on Smalls’s computer. Now Taryn Grant—a wealthy, ambitious, ruthless Democratic newcomer—might pull off an upset. Though Henderson is a Democrat, he believes Smalls has been framed, and tasks Davenport with quietly and quickly investigating. Up against two of Grant’s “security” men, both tough ex-military operatives, and the election deadline, Davenport needs all his smarts plus help from fellow BCA agent Virgil Flowers (the star of his own series) and computer genius Kidd. Sandford expertly ratchets up the suspense and delivers some nifty surprises as Davenport deals with political nastiness and paybacks regardless of party affiliations. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM.
