Library Journal Review: Is Lucas Davenport losing his edge? In his 17th outing, the Minnesota lawman seems to spend more time delegating than detecting. First, he has an intern investigate the untimely deaths of some wealthy St. Paul senior citizens. The break in the case comes when the cops connect the victims to a set of antique quilts. That's right; the rugged detective's taking on quilt cases now. When he's not pouring over The Antiques Price Guide, Davenport organizes Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension's investigation of a state politician accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl. By far the more interesting of the two story lines, speculation about the sleazy politician gives Davenport and his cronies plenty of opportunity for the crude and clever shoptalk at which Sandford excels. Series fans will miss the adrenaline rush they usually get from his books but will appreciate the cameo by Sandford's other series character, Kidd. Sandford's popularity makes this an essential purchase for all public libraries. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 1/07.]?Karen Kleckner, Deerfield P.L., IL Copyright ?
