A terrifying Lucas Davenport thriller from #1 New York Times–bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize–winner John Sandford.
They call them Travelers. They move from city to city, panhandling, committing no crimes—they just like to stay on the move. And now somebody is killing them.
Lucas Davenport’s adopted daughter, Letty, is home from college when she gets a phone call from a woman Traveler she’d befriended in San Francisco. The woman thinks somebody’s killing her friends, she’s afraid she knows who it is, and now her male companion has gone missing. She’s hiding out in North Dakota, and she doesn’t know what to do.
Letty tells Lucas she’s going to get her, and, though he suspects Letty’s getting played, he volunteers to go with her. When he hears the woman’s story, though, he begins to think there’s something in it. Little does he know. In the days to come, he will embark upon an odyssey through a subculture unlike any he has ever seen, a trip that will not only put the two of them in danger—but just may change the course of his life.
Good audiobook. The audiobook version was good but not the "great" I expected. The story itself was as masterful as always but Richard Ferrome's normal narration was somehow different. His tone was not the same and it made a difference for me as a listener of the Davenport serioes.
Not the best...
I’ve read every book in the series to this pint and this is definitely the weakest so far. It’s hard to get motivated to read it and I almost feel like just reading the last chapter to get it over with. The family drama (getting his family involved directly in the case/danger) is ridiculous.
Best in serious since the early books.
