It's been years since I've taken up a John Sanford novel. I decided to take another "chance" with his latest: Silken Prey. The blurbs on Amazon all speak of Sanford in sparkling terms - "this novel is not to be missed." Well, I've not finished it but I think I'll miss the rest of it. I like novels that MOVE and move quickly. This one doesn't. I was acquainted with Lucas Davenport in Sanford's books that I read years ago and now I understand why I stopped reading them. They just "poke along."
This novel was supposed to involve the best aspects of a political thriller and a murder mystery. Well, it does include both of these elements but after a hundred pages it still has not gone anywhere fast. So, Goodbye, John Sanford.
