I am a solid hard-core fan of Lucas Davenport & John Sandford. This time around Clara Rinker is back with vengeance in her heart and mind. For some reason she is one of the few true "bad guys" I want to see get away. I love the chase she gives Davenport and he likes it too. I have to say I missed Dell, Marcy and Sloane. But it was a wonderful read.
