The plot follows Davenport as he works two cases, the accused statutory rape of a girl by a senator, and a seemingly unconnected chain of murders. I enjoyed Davenport's attitude, he's very laid back but tenacious, and a good detective, and Sandford writes in an easy to read, noir style prose. Not quite Lee Child short. But short sentences. The storylines meshed together well, and the ending hit at a nice pace, without ever really feeling forced or cut short like a lot of thrillers. I'll have to keep an eye out for more.
