John Sanford shows zero signs of fading with the publication of his 20th book in his bestselling Lucas Davenport series: populated by well-developed characters racing through a smart and swift plot, STORM PREY hits the mark. On her way to work early one morning in the midst of a snowstorm, surgeon Weather Karkinnen narrowly avoids a collision with a speeding vehicle, which turns out to be the getaway car from a fumbled robbery. A busy surgeon working on a major case involving conjoined twins, Weather--who is married to Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Chief Lucas Davenport--is now a central witness in this unsolved case.
