Letty Davenport, the brilliant and tenacious adopted daughter of Lucas Davenport, takes the investigative reins in the newest thriller from #1 bestselling author John Sandford.
“Sandford fans rejoice! Davenport next generation has arrived and Letty is exactly the kind of cool-eyed, smart-mouthed, lethally dangerous heroine we’ve been waiting for.” --Lisa Gardner, author of One Step Too Far

By age twenty-four, Letty Davenport has seen more action and uncovered more secrets than many law enforcement professionals. Now a recent Stanford grad with a master’s in economics, she’s restless and bored in a desk job for U.S. Senator Colles. Letty’s ready to quit, but her skills have impressed Colles, and he offers her a carrot: feet-on-the-ground investigative work, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security. 
Several oil companies in Texas have reported thefts of crude, Colles tells her.  He isn’t so much concerned with the oil as he is with the money: who is selling the oil, and what are they doing with the profits? Rumor has it that a fairly ugly militia group might be involved. Colles wants to know if the money is going to them, and if so, what they’re planning. 
Letty is partnered with a DHS investigator, John Kaiser, and they head to Texas.  When the case quicky turns deadly, they know they’re on the track of something bigger.  The militia group has set in motion an explosive plan . . . and the clock is ticking down.

Lettie has been a great support character in previous stories, but stepping up as a main character didn’t work, in my opinion. It’s too obvious that she’s being made to be this expert badass, who doesn’t back down to tough criminals, politicians, other law enforcement, or 3 letter agencies. And is too young and green for it to come across as believable. Lastly, the politics of the author seem far from subtle in this read. I’ll stick to Lucas and Virgil.

This one was more "action packed" than most of his stories. I liked it. Happy to see Lettie has her own series.

Love the Lucas books & am excited to get to know Lettie. The book kept my attention-especially for an area I was unfamiliar with. Liked the banter between characters. Narrator was easy to listen to & changed inflection in his voice between characters.

This book is a set up for things to come. But, you get through the whole book and wonder what has the main character accomplished? Sanford set's her up for future adventures but the ending is abrupt and at after all the story what did she help or stop. I would say there was little to no success to the main characters efforts. Kind of blah.
