Reviews
"The Investigator is a procedural action thriller in which the technical sleuthing only heightens the tension. Letty is such a capable character, and Mr. Sandford such a fine tactician, it would seem incomprehensible and even cruel to deny readers a swift follow-up."--Wall Street Journal

"John Sandford created a winning formula with his furiously paced Prey novels, which star Lucas Davenport, a Minnesota detective turned U.S. marshal with a penchant for sharp dressing, high romancing and expert marksmanship. In The Investigator he moves the chess pieces to a different board."--New York Times

"Sandford's first Letty Davenport novel is a violent, topical, fast-paced story that's sure to please action fans."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Readers are treated to Sandford's well-crafted prose, conversational but never chatty and charged with boisterous humor. A top-line thriller from one of thegenre's heavy hitters."--Booklist

"A domestic-terrorist plot gives the adopted daughter of storied U.S. Marshal Lucas Davenport her moment to shine. Generations may succeed generations, but Sandford's patented investigation/action formula hasn't aged a whit. Bring it on."--Kirkus Reviews

"Letty Davenport takes center stage in this welcome series spin-off. One of Sandford's best books in years."--Publishers Weekly

"If John Sandford's The Investigator isn't the most-anticipated spring book, it's darn close...Sandford writes fully realized characters and no doubt he will deepen our understanding of Letty as the series matures."--Pioneer Press

"Fans of the Lucas Davenport series will find much to like in the adventures of his adopted daughter."--Criminal Element
