Sandford's (Stolen Prey) tale of murder and political dirty tricks finds Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) agent Davenport investigating child pornography allegations against a senator who's up for reelection. Other Sandford characters such as BCA agent Virgil Flowers and computer savant Kidd make cameo appearances as they assist in unraveling this rather predictable political thriller. Actor and narrator Richard Ferrone provides a gritty yet smooth reading of Davenport's latest dilemma.
VERDICT Of interest to fans of the series and of the author. [The Putnam hc was a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]
