I found the machinations of the political minutia just too boring - couldn't get through the book, which is a first, but about the middle of it, I knew what would happen and I couldn't get excited enough about the details to care to get there.
If I wanted to hear about democrats and their ilk I 'd listen to CNN
Just read it for the second time and really enjoyed the story and performance. Characters are very real. I really like when all the BCA people working for Davenport interact.
I thought I was going to have trouble liking this story. It took a few chapters to get into it, but then I couldn't put it down.

I always like the characters that Lucas Davenport has for friends. This story is entangled as usual but the second story with Kidd has drawing power of its own. The drama is written in such a way that you really want to find out how Lucas untangles the situation.
Lucas is always a favorite because he is highly intelligent and driven to succeed. His family and friends make him a caring and loving person even in his pursuit of the evil of others.
Richard Ferrone needs to learn to pronounce the names of cities and towns in Minnesota. He takes away from the story by mispronouncing these names for those of us who know how to say them.
No, it didn't although I did worry about the outcome for some of the characters as they made bad decisions.
