Lucas Davenport confronts an old nemesis, now a powerful U.S. senator, in this thrilling #1 New York Times-bestselling new novel in the Prey series.
Lucas Davenport had crossed paths with her before.
A rich psychopath, Taryn Grant had run successfully for the U.S. Senate, where Lucas had predicted she’d fit right in. He was also convinced that she’d been responsible for three murders, though he’d never been able to prove it. Once a psychopath had gotten that kind of rush, though, he or she often needed another fix, so he figured he might be seeing her again.
He was right. A federal marshal now, with a very wide scope of investigation, he’s heard rumors that Grant has found her seat on the Senate intelligence committee, and the contacts she’s made from it, to be very…useful. Pinning those rumors down was likely to be just as difficult as before, and considerably more dangerous.
But they had unfinished business, he and Grant. One way or the other, he was going to see it through to the end.

have to admit that I had hoped with this book, I would find Lucas back at his old job in Minneapolis with the Bureau of Apprehension. However, when I learned who the villian was, I was happy to see Lucas as a U.S. Marshall – and in Washington, D.C. It just seemed so right.
At first a murder brings intrigue by killing the wrong person. Then the plot thickens when Lucas is called in because the person(s) susupected of trying to kill Senator Smalls not only wanted the Senator killed, but had been suspected of murder by Lucas years before. The story builds with layer upon layer, and people hiring people, until you scarcely know where it all will stop. Who are the good guys, who are the bad guys, and who, in between, can be trusted with all the details? It’s a great read. I really, really liked it.
