The Investigator

Best-selling novelist Sanford introduces a new character, Letty Davenport, in this series starter. Letty is the stepdaughter of Sanford’s popular police detective, Lucas Davenport, the star of Sanford’s prolific “Prey” series. Letty is smart, feisty, confident, and a better shot than most men. When millions of dollars of crude oil go missing from a major oil-drilling company, Homeland Security hires Letty to find out who is stealing the oil and why. She is paired with veteran DHS investigator John Kaiser. Together, they uncover a right-wing militia group that is siphoning off the oil to raise money for an operation on the U.S. and Mexican border. The situation becomes tense when the militia takes over a small Texas border town and steals explosives and detonators from the army. John and Letty must stop the operation before hundreds of asylum seekers are killed. Narrator Richard Ferrone does an excellent job reading the book. He brings out each character’s distinctive voice and personality. Especially well done and entertaining is the easy repartee between John and Letty.
VERDICT A must-buy. Sanford fans will be captivated and will eagerly seek out more Letty Davenport novels.
