    I loved this book.Although the subject matter did not have the greatest timing for me. I read this four days before our presidential election. By that time I was SO over everything political. That being said, it was everything I love about a Davenport story. Very well written, great characters who definitely have their little quirks, Lucas' logic and problem solving. And even though he is no longer a cop, we get small glimpses of some of his old gang. Del, Elle, Kidd and even that f'n Flowers is heard from.Lucas has left his position in the BCA, quietly loving his downtime, working on his cabin. When the governor calls him urgently to Iowa with a concern that could impact his run for the presidency. When he gets there, he realizes that other than a "bad feeling" about a couple of people, and some weird emails all using the same words and phrasing, there really is not much to go on. But it's enough to get his hackles up and call in some favors. What he finds sends him on a goose chase tracking down political fanatics, groups who have come together in their hate of any government agency. As he closes in, his bad guys start getting antsy and bodies start piling up.As much as Lucas does not miss his job, he finds out he really misses having a badge. It's hard to gain entry or get people talking without one. On the other hand, not having one means he's not held to the same laws and regulations that he would be if he still had one.When all is said and done, he's offered a new position, one he had not considered, but one that definitely has piqued his interest.Great, story, can be read as a standalone.

    Another good read in the Prey series, but not so much that I was compelled to read it in one sitting. Other reviewers have pretty much covered the meat of the story, that it takes place in Iowa, for the most part. I missed the Minnesota and Wisconsin connections, though the story starts out at our hero's cabin in northern WI---with him driving his female carpenter nuts. He then gets a call from the MN governor's office and he's off to Iowa. I was disappointed that there were no Letty chapters, only a reference to her being away at college. Missed her interaction with Lucas (hoping for a spin off series centered on Letty). One of the reviewers commented that there were too many references to Flowers---I didn't notice any more than what we usually read in the Prey books. The books are centered in a relatively small area of the midwest and the cops and investigators no doubt cross paths in reality, so I don't find fault with Flowers' name popping up here and there. In fact I'd be disappointed if I didn't hear something about that effing Flowers.The whole time I was reading the book, and Lucas and his cohorts were tracking down the radicals, something was bothering me about their search. I'll have to read the book again, but seems that the towns in Iowa where they were searching were quite small. Having lived for 20 years in a small town of 300 people I can tell you that in a town that size (and the surrounding rural areas) everyone know everyone, and their political affiliations, especially if they have radical leanings. So instead of trying to track down 182 people from a list (of radicals) given to him by another radical, why not take the descriptions he had and ask at the local grocery store, diner, gas station, tavern, post office, etc. Those are the five core components of small towns where everyone shows up eventually. Something else that bothered me...SPOILER ALERT...don't know if Lucas is slipping but it sure seemed to take him a long time to suspect a bomb might be the attackers' weapon of choice. In this day and age, with all the bombings and scares around the world, and knowing that one of the attackers was an Iraq veteran, I just felt that Lucas, or someone on his team, should have thought of it a lot sooner. Overall, liked the book, didn't love it, but I'll read it again.

    Author John Sandford and the lead character in his PREY novels, Lucas Davenport, have made some big moves lately. Sandford has moved to New Mexico, and Lucas has quit his job working for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.But Lucas is back in the saddle when governor Elmer Henderson, who is running for president in the Iowa caucuses, asks for his help. Seems like these two weirdos have been hounding him to move to the center so leading democratic candidate Michaela “Mike” Bowden (think Hillary) doesn't win the democratic nomination for president.Sandford likes to show you who we're dealing with and why they are the way they are. So he introduces us to Marlys and Clay Purdy early on. She's an old sixties radical and he's done time in the Middle East with the National Guard and is suffering from some form of PTS.Henderson has a hunch these two are planning some kind of dangerous scheme. He doesn't have a name, but he has a description for Lucas; she has white curly hair and he has gray eyes. Lucas still has connections in the BCA, and he compiles a list of possible radical organizations who might have a gripe against Bowden. Then, as usual in a PREY novel, people start dropping like flies.Sandford also has another motive. Lucas needs a badge. He's having trouble enough getting the head of the Iowa state cops to give him some support. It takes a tongue-lashing by the Iowa governor to get the jealous director to give him four state cops to help him track these people down. Bowden isn't helping either; she insists on doing a “walk through” during the Iowa State Fair, the worst possible place to provide security, with thousands of people milling about.This is an instructive book for beginning writers. If your character is tied up in a chair waiting for the axe to drop, you can't have him/her reach into a desk drawer and find a knife. That's too convenient. You need to plant that knife earlier in the story. Lucas does track down the Purdys, but they're gone by the time he finds their farm. There's a workshop in the hayloft, and Lucas finds several bolts; he can't quite make the connection, but he does in the nick of time. The dummy should've known what they were for, but he was concentrating on snipers. There's evidence Clay is a crack shot.Sandford does accomplish his goal because Lucas always gets his man (sometimes woman), at least ninety-nine percent of the time. At the end of the novel, somebody owes him one (I think you can guess who that might be) and that something turns out to be a job.
