Attorney Carmel Loan is beautiful, intelligent, ambitious - and used to getting what she wants. When she becomes infatuated with fellow barrister Hale Allen, she isn't going to let a little thing like his being married get in the way. So, through the contacts of an ex-client, she hired professional killer Clara Rinker to get rid of Allen's wife. Smart, attractive Rinker is the best hitwoman in the business - but things go wrong, and the shooting of a witness, a cop, brings DI Lucas Davenport into the case. Carmel Loan and Clara Rinker team up to clean up the loose ends - which includes getting Davenport off their backs by whatever means necessary.

Easy read. Good plot except for the reason the bimbo lawyer is attracted to Hale, who is a few bricks short of a full load. Sort of makes you wonder how Hale got through law school etc.

Lucas Davenport #10. A criminal attorney (read that how you will) and a hit woman team up to clean up. A clean up that may include sweeping Davenport off the board.

A very original plot which should scare us all as Sanford seems to draw his characters from real events. You will find yourself drawn to the assassain as she is the smartest and most motivated of the characters-go Clara. Lucas better bring his A game to this one.

This is probably one of Sandford's books that I've liked the most. The plot was tight and very well developed

I think this and the follow-up, Mortal Prey, are among my favorites among the 22 Prey books. Clara Rinker is one bad ass killer but she brings a dimension to Davenport that makes him more real. This is a fun read, well written (the author is a Pulitzer Prize winner, so what can you expect) and memorable.

Previously read. Female contract killer teams up with wacko female killer lawyer. Davenport interacts with both. Fun read, good characters.
