Description

Letty Davenport, the brilliant and tenacious adopted daughter of Lucas Davenport, takes the investigative reins in the newest thriller from #1 bestselling author John Sandford.
 
“Sandford fans rejoice! Davenport next generation has arrived and Letty is exactly the kind of cool-eyed, smart-mouthed, lethally dangerous heroine we’ve been waiting for.” --Lisa Gardner, author of One Step Too Far

By age twenty-four, Letty Davenport has seen more action and uncovered more secrets than many law enforcement professionals. Now a recent Stanford grad with a master’s in economics, she’s restless and bored in a desk job for U.S. Senator Colles. Letty’s ready to quit, but her skills have impressed Colles, and he offers her a carrot: feet-on-the-ground investigative work, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security. 
 
Several oil companies in Texas have reported thefts of crude, Colles tells her.  He isn’t so much concerned with the oil as he is with the money: who is selling the oil, and what are they doing with the profits? Rumor has it that a fairly ugly militia group might be involved. Colles wants to know if the money is going to them, and if so, what they’re planning. 
 
Letty is partnered with a DHS investigator, John Kaiser, and they head to Texas.  When the case quicky turns deadly, they know they’re on the track of something bigger.  The militia group has set in motion an explosive plan . . . and the clock is ticking down.

    I am happy to say that I have been a loyal John Sanford fan for decades, and the introduction of Letty as a character is just remarkable. Intriguing story and a level of tension that carried through. Incredible read!! Thank you

    I could not get through Sandford’s last book, but I have enjoyed all of the others, so I was excited to see Letty Davenport featured. I could barely put it down except I wanted to make it last a week. It was worth it. The story was believable, kept my interest and I could care less if there were minor details others choked on. I loved it! Thanks! And I can hardly wait for another one featuring Letty! Mimi2

    Fast paced and believable after what happened on January 6th. You could easily see this storyline playing out at any U.S. Mexico border state.

    Stick weigh Lucas and Virgil. Letty is cool as Lucas’ child but not believable as a main character ...... yet.
  • Another amazing Davenport journey

    I enjoyed the book. Letty Davenport is a woman surviving in a man’s world. If you have not been a woman working in law enforcement then you may not understand the need to be tough at times. Letty is following in the footsteps of her father.
