John Sanford's novels never fail to send a chill up my spine. 'Invisible Prey' continues the story of detective Lucas Davenport. Davenport is investigating the murder of a rich widow and her housekeeper at the behest of the Governor. All politics is local, especially in police thrillers. The widow Bucher had a large collection of antiques, but its far from certain that robbery was the motive here. The investigation leads Davenport to a string of similar crimes. At the same time, our hero is investigating a state senator who's been accused of having sex with a 15 year-old girl. But that story is also leading to some very muddy waters. The girl's mother may simply be after a payoff.

Its less of a chiller than most of the previous novels by Sanford, but there's no getting around how deeply engrossed you get into the story lines. Its a fine outing by this reliable author.
