This book made me want to become a bestselling author - because if drivel like this can sell then I want to get in on the gravy train. Here's the formula: ignorant rednecks, guessable plot, predicable violence. I could go on but what's the point? For an actual good read give yourself a treat and read Lee Child's Reacher series. (Skip the movie, however.) Of course if you haven't read everything John D. MacDonald has written then please do that first.

The Coolest male cop in Literature today. One of the Best Crime writers today, Yet He is under rated among His Peers. Read this Book and I promise you'll want to read the whole series.

P.S Sandford is also the most consistent Writer in His Feld. Almost all of His Lucas Books are Great Books.

I am working through Sandford's books but I didn't realize this was the first one of the Davenport series until well into it. Nice introduction to the great character

What an excellent beginning to a five star career. This is the one that compells you to keep reading, and reading, and reading...and never wanting them to end. Fabulous!

Quite enjoyed this one; plan to work my way through the "Davenport/Rules" series and check out Sandford's other works.
This edition includes an author foreword/intro which provides interesting commentary on how the news gathering process can adversely affect journalists.

... ''Three hundred feet out, a musky fisherman was working a surface lure...'' [Ch. 12] Doesn't this beg the question: was the fisherman sorely in need of a shower or was he hoping to land a musky (a.k.a. muskie or muskellunge)? :)
