Putnam. (Letty Davenport, Bk. 2). Apr. 2023. 384p. ISBN 9780593422410. $29.95. THRILLER
After investigator Letty Davenport partners with agent Barb Cartwright, she’s invited to a private club, the Washington Ladies Peace-Maker Society. It’s a shooting club with a difference; the women are all killers. Her friendships come in handy when she needs backup on her next assignment. The National Security Agency asks Letty to partner with a man who specializes in computers. The two will head to California, trying to meet up with a group called Ordinary People, hackers who might be planning to shut down the natural gas supply in a northern city. But Letty doesn’t trust the NSA connection. When she discovers that the hackers have messed with Russian train schedules, she realizes she’s been picked to protect the hackers on a secret assignment—hack into the Russian train schedules as Russia plans to invade Ukraine. However, Letty will need to bring in more protection when the Russians attempt to stop the hackers.
VERDICT While the Russia/Ukraine hacking scheme already seems historical, the second Letty Davenport thriller (after The Investigator) will satisfy Sandford’s numerous readers, with its high-octane action and gallows humor.
