Lucas Davenport #8 finds Davenport trying to protect the loved ones of his colleagues. After a bank robber is killed in a shoot-out, her husband swears revenge on everyone involved. He isn't going to hurt them, but someone they love. An interesting premise but not some of Sandford's best writing.

Choppy read. Not John Sandford's usual style. Does not flow smoothly. I does get better as you read, but the beginning is really choppy.

This was definitely my favourite book by Sanford so far (I'm reading them in order of publishing date). The plot was excellent, showing the good side and the dark side of Davenport, the action was continuous but not overwhelming, and the introspective parts were extremely well-time to give the reader a chance to rest from all the action. If anything, I just wanted to slap Weather for being so stubborn and alas, I would say, stupid

It begins with a death and ends with one. For months, Lucas Davenport's men have been tracking a vicious woman bank robber named Candy, and when they finally catch up with her, she does not go quietly. In the ensuing shoot-out, she dies — and Davenport's nightmare starts. For her associates are even worse than she was, particularly her husband, a deeply violent man who swears an appropriate revenge: first he will find the names of those responsible; then he will kill those nearest and dearest to them, just the way they did Candy.
So it begins. The husband of one officer is shot and killed. The wife of another is ambushed at work. When a third attack is thwarted, the pattern becomes clear to Davenport, and with an urgency born of rage and terror, he presses the hunt, desperately trying to track down the killers before they can strike again, before they can reach out for Davenport's own loved ones. But in this effort, he may already be too late.
