Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan.' A Russian cop flies in from Moscow, Davenport flies in from Minneapolis, law enforcement and press types swarm the crime scene - and, in the middle of it all, there is another murder. Is there a relationship between the two? What is the Russian cop hiding from Davenport? Is she - yes, it's a woman - a cop at all? Why was the man shot with ... fifty-year-old bullets? Before he can find the answers, Davenport will have to follow a trail back to another place, another time, and battle the shadows he discovers there - shadows that turn out to be both very real and very deadly.

I had read this one before but enjoyed it just as much as if I had not read it at all. John Sandford is such a good author. I would recommend all of his Lucas Davenport books.

This book isn't bad but it gets a little long in the tooth and it loses you at times with all the characters.

This is just a mildly interesting, generally not -too-horrible tale. There's a lot of old school Cold War stuff that seems incredily dated and not too pertinent in today's world. This novel took a LOT in the way of willing suspension of disbelief but then, I have a long commute and it WAS better than lame talk radio. Talk about faint praise...

The book bordered on ok. The reader was good at the voice acting but sounded like he was reading during non-dialogue parts. Not the best voice actor around. The story was ok but I felt nothing for the characters. They seemed to be mostly one-dimensional and there was not much depth to them. I've heard far better murder/mystery detective stories like The Last Detective, Kill The Messenger or Saving Faith.

It was a very good action yarn and definately kept my interest but, at the end of the book, I was left wondering at the weakness of the plot.
