    (1062)

    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"
    "Phoned this one in"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe I'm spoiled by some of the previous Prey series and other John Sanford books but this wouldn't be something I'd recommend to a friend. This book had no mystery, no suspense and little to no character development. This book felt like a prequel to some other book in the future and could have been contained in a paragraph. I was bored early on and found my self wishing for the end. The female characters in the series have always left something to be desired in their development but this was the worst. The constant references to excess and wealth are becoming more than tiresome and add nothing to the characters nor the story and actually prevent me from liking most of the character in this book. I'd recommend a Virgil Flowers book to a friend certainly not this book.


    Has Silken Prey turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not at all there are natural highs and lows within any series but this was a defiantly one of the very lows.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    He gives Lucas Davenport a believable voice.


    Did Silken Prey inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, to long for the next Virgil Flowers book! I'm defiantly finding myself drawn more to that series than the Prey books of late. The characters are a lot more interesting and I actually like them, I'm beginning to find Lucas, Weather and the lot to be very boring and tedious.
