Silken Prey 

John Sandford, read by Richard Ferrone. Penguin Audio, unabridged, 10 CDs, 12.25 hrs., $39.95 ISBN 978-1-61176-166-5
Sandford’s intrepid detective, Lucas Davenport, of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, is drawn into a political mystery filled with intrigue, corruption, and murder. With only a few days until the next election, incumbent Republican Senator Porter Smalls faces a potentially career ending scandal when child pornography is discovered on his personal computer. With Smalls professing his innocence, stating that the incriminating photos were planted to kill his reelection bid, Davenport is brought in to investigate. What follows is an intricate, multilayered story that pits Davenport against one of the most callous villains he has ever encountered. Richard Ferrone is undoubtedly the voice of this popular audio series, having provided the narration for all 23 of Sandford’s Prey books. From the opening scene—a truly chilling kidnapping and murder—to the last paragraph, it is clear that Ferrone knows this material and these characters inside and out. His gruff, confident reading keeps the story moving at a smooth, steady pace, and he delivers dialogue with a clear, natural style. Fans will not be disappointed with this latest collaboration between writer and reader. A Putnam hardcover. (May)
