✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ Twisted Prey by John Sandford

Twisted Prey 
A Prey Novel #28
by John Sandford 

Lucas Davenport confronts an old nemesis, now a powerful U.S. senator, in the thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling Prey series.

Lucas Davenport had crossed paths with her before.

A rich psychopath, Taryn Grant had run successfully for the U.S. Senate, where Lucas had predicted she'd fit right in. He was also convinced that she'd been responsible for three murders, though he'd never been able to prove it. Once a psychopath had gotten that kind of rush, though, he or she often needed another fix, so he figured he might be seeing her again.

He was right. A federal marshal now, with a very wide scope of investigation, he's heard rumors that Grant has found her seat on the Senate intelligence committee, and the contacts she's made from it, to be very...useful. Pinning those rumors down was likely to be just as difficult as before, and considerably more dangerous.

But they had unfinished business, he and Grant. One way or the other, he was going to see it through to the end.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The one that got away is back with a vengeance. We first saw Taryn Grant in Silken Prey, and considering the circumstances in that one, Lucas is more than happy to be on her trail again - this time as a US Marshall. 
In addition to Lucas, we get to revisit with some favorites from the series, both old and new. Naturally, we get some time with the family, including Lettie. Bob and Rae, the Marshall's version of Jenkins and Shrake, are back and we even get a bit of Kidd when Lucas is need of internet help. Add in a couple of peeks at Del and Virgil and a lot of the gang is covered. 
Twisted Prey takes off pretty quickly with a not so accidental car crash that has Lucas sniffing around Washington DC. The tension rapidly builds from there with political intrigue, murder, and some shady deals from our bad guys and as the body count rises, so does the danger. With lots of action and plenty of twists to keep a reader guessing, along with a conclusion that is classic Lucas Davenport, this one is absolutely unputdownable.
