Overview

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.

Praise

“Eerily suspenseful.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“Vintage Sandford—a tough, intriguing story wrapped around an equally tough and intriguing cop.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“Skillfully blends dark humor and the macabre in scenes worthy of a Coen brothers’ movie…pure delight.”—Orlando Sentinel
 
“Deft, action-packed, and slyly funny. Just when you thought the silky smooth Sandford couldn’t possibly get better, he does.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The plot unfolds sharply, holding you relentlessly until its superb denouement. Sandford’s writing is as spare and direct as a Minnesota winter landscape, and his characters crackle with life…[Davenport] is the pounding heart of the novel.”—The Associated Press
