“One of [the] best” (Orlando Sentinel) Lucas Davenport Novels—now with a New Introduction by the Author.

Clara Rinker is twenty-eight, beautiful, charmingly southern—and the best hit woman in the business. She just goes about her business, collects her money, and goes home. Her latest hit sounds simple: a defense attorney wants a rival eliminated. No problem—until a witness survives. Clara usually knows how to deal with loose ends: cut them off, one by one, until they're all gone. This time, there’s one loose end that’s hard to shake.

Lucas Davenport has no idea of the toll this case is about to take on him. Clara knows his weak spots. She knows how to penetrate them, and how to use them. And when a woman like Clara has the advantage, no one is safe.

    A fast, fun crime read. Somewhat bloody, but has smart bad-guys/women. Lucas Davenport is, of course, smarter.
  • Freaking awesome!!!!!!

    I've read all the "Prey" series of books, up to this one. They were all good reading. However, this book was not the same. Lucas pulls some very crazy and super illegal maneuvers to prove his case. Really unbelievable stuff. Plus, the villain was a little on the unbelievable Sid as well. I'm going to try one more book, and if it's like this one, that's it.
  • Not his finest

    The Davenport series are very good ,but this is below average.The story is too contrived,the bad guys do not scare,the solution a bit less convincing.
