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
