Silken Prey by John Sanford

Silken Prey - John Sandford

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.
