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

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.

DOn't meet too many psychopathic pimps in wheelchairs!

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!
