SILKEN PREY by John Sandford - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by John Sandford.
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 the incumbent U.S. senator with a vicious smear, to open
the way for an ambitious, take-no-prisoners heiress who sees the Senate
as merely a stepping-stone, he decides his payoff should be larger. The
blackmail demand should yield some pretty large numbers, he thinks.
Instead, he gets only a small one—9 millimeters, to be exact. In the heart.
Davenport is investigating the
smear when the trail leads to the man’s disappearance, then—very
troublingly—to the Minneapolis police department, 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, and the money,
ruthlessness, and sheer will to make it happen.
No matter who gets in the way.
