Reviews of Silken Prey (2014)
Review by michael a draper (2015-11-02)
Lucas Davenport gets mixed up with politics when he's asked to investigate the accusation of child porn on a wealthy political candidate.
Even though the governor is on the opposing party, something about the convenience of the discovery of the accusation so soon before the election doesn't seem right.
The race for the US Senate is a toss up and one of the participants is a wealthy young woman with a campaign staff that doesn't hesitate when asked to perform dirty tricks.. However one of the characters wants more money for his deeds and then goes missing.
The plot is tight and the story is fresh and since it is election time, the story is very timely.
