    Story

    I could not bring myself to finish this book after about an hour into it. I typically love works by this author, but I could not listen any further. The characters had no likable qualities. I felt like I had stepped back a few decades and was reading the screenplay of "10." Maybe there is a worthwhile story in there somewhere, I couldn't get to it....

    Very early one morning, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he’s waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, "Hey, I think he’s breathing." And another voice says, "Yeah? Give me the bat." And that’s the last thing he knows. Davenport is investigating another case 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.

    John Norton says: "Still my favorite combo of author and reader"
    "Total disappointment! I feel cheated."

    Story

    After reading (and loving!) EVERY book by Sanford, I feel completely cheated by this one. I choose to read books as escapism from everyday realities. This book is just a continuation of the real world corruption with no consequences that I prefer to step AWAY from by reading. Angry that I wasted my time reading/listening!
