Waiting On Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Prey series has been one of my favorites for a while, and it is one series I was hoping to get caught up on this year. Looks like I have my work cut out for me as I still haven't read the last one and the next installment will be released soon.

Wicked Prey by John Sandford
Will be Released May 12, 2009

Description:
Having spent the past two years in hiding following a daring and successful heist, a big -time robber is back in Minneapolis, having spotted the opportunity for an even greater steal. It's a couple of weeks before the big Republican party convention: thousands of people spending cash, which is flowing into a relatively inadequate Brinks warehouse, protected by only three or four armed guards. The robber's plan is to distract the cops by manipulating and alerting them to a possible assassination attempt.

Lucas Davenport meanwhile has problems of his own, targeted by a psychopathic pimp, who blames Davenport for the fact he's in a wheelchair. Only it's not Davenport he's going after; it's his innocent daughter, Letty.

Ack! I am so excited! I read every single darned one of these as they come along. I will get my name in the Q at the library NOW!

Lenore: I know! I can't wait to see what he does with that character.

Sandy: I knew you read this series too, and you'll probably get to this one before I will.

I love the Lucas Davenport books! I saw John Sanford at a book signing a few years ago and it was really interesting to hear him talk about the special challenges of writing a series. Thanks for the review!
