About the book:

A black man and a white woman are discovered hanging from a tree in northern Minnesota. Both are naked. The media labels the crime a lynching, which trumps a run-of-the-mill double murder. Fearing that he'll be a one-term wonder if the case isn't solved quickly, the governor of Minnesota calls Lucas Davenport, who has accepted an appointment to the state's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The only witness he and his partner, Del Capslock, have is Letty West. She's a 12-year-old who manages for her alcoholic mother and herself by trapping muskrat and raccoon. Her dilapidated home is a mere 200 yards from the hanging tree. She saw headlights on the night of the killing and found the bodies the next morning when she set about clearing her trap lines. She's a tough kid, knows everybody in her small town of Broderick, and is able to provide enough info on the car to help lead Davenport to the killer. But there's no arrest to be made because the killer and his wife have been killed just prior to Lucas' arrival. The crimes must have a common thread, but Lucas can't find it. This fifteenth Prey novel is suspenseful and cleverly plotted, and the denouement is an exhilarating example of ultimate justice convincingly delivered. Sandford has another best-seller here, and it's one of the better entries in a fine series.
