Moving with his boss to state-level cases, Lucas Davenport, having recently become the head of a family, investigates the hanging deaths of an African American man and a white woman, a case that proves more complicated than it appears.

Blackwell North Amer
In Naked Prey, John Sandford puts Lucas Davenport through some changes. His old boss, Rose Marie Roux, has moved up to the state level and taken Lucas with her, creating for him a special troubleshooter job for the cases that are too complicated or politically touchy for others to handle. In addition, Lucas is married now, and a new father, all of which is fine with him; he doesn't mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay - and he's waiting for the bill.
It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes the situation particularly sensitive is that the bodies are of a black man and a white woman, and they're naked. "Lynching" is the word that everybody's trying not to say, but as Lucas begins to discover, in fact the murders are not what they appear to be, and they are not the end of it. There is worse to come - much, much worse.

This is the Letty story, the Letty book, so in that regard it is a good read - - the author does come across with a disjointed villian, as if he decided midstream to include his mother after all for the denouement of the story line.

Sandford's Lucas Davenport is a great character. In this book, the supporting cast is also quite good, alive, full of nuances that makes the characters real. Unfortunately, the villains are not up to par with the rest of the story or characters and that results in the whole book being barely average
