I love they way they build on each other. Sandford doesn't leave a cliff hanger like the old serials did in the movies but his books sure lead you to wanting to read the next book in the series. Davenport or Mitch Rapp. Maybe they are equal in my mind. Both are dynamite character's. I love Sandford books but recently been hesitant to purchase them thinking that Lucas Davenport is going to get old and boring.
Sandford Never Disappoints. I am not going to hesitate in getting a Sanford book in the future and now going through my library to see if there are any I haven't listened to yet.
Im suprised there isn't a whole slew of movies based on Davenport. This is the book where Letty West enters the story. She is a 12 year old girl living with her alcoholic mother in the middle of nowhere. She traps animals to make money for the family. She is a tough and mature young lady with icy blue eyes, similar to Lucas Davenport's eyes. They have similar fearless personalities also - hard, determined and fierce. Lucas and Del are investigating the hanging of a man and woman in this very small and isolated community. There are two "businesses" in town that are unusual - a vehicle repair shop that only deals with Toyotas and a church of sorts that delivers food and other things to poor people.
Lucas and Del deal with the local sherif's office, highway patrol and the FBI. Lucas and Del are special agents for the Governor's office. The hanging is a tough and complicated crime that seems to grow as the story unfolds. A really great book, and is even better due to the entrance of Letty, who appears in many of the series later books.
Also is great due to the fantastic narration by Richard Ferrone. Having read all of the previous Davenport novels, I was prepared for a good read - and boy was I not disappointed. The action was well paced and tight. The story line kept me on the edge of my seat. Addition of Letty as a continuing character conjures up lots of new plot lines.
A great listen. I really liked that this plot line felt a little different and written well. Loved Letty's character. Really noticed a few storyline drops like the bite wound from the first chapter never mentioned after first day of investigation. But otherwise I loved listening to this. This is the first book where Lucas meets Letty and she becomes a major character for the rest of the series. She's like a young Katniss Everdeen and very entertaining to read about. You learn the identity of the murderer rather quickly though and you won't have the chance to figure it out for yourself first.
This is hardly about a lynching and more about kidnapped girls. So you can be rest assured it doesn't spend much time on racism, which could have been a concern.
