Naked Prey book description

Lucas Davenport’s old boss, Rose Marie Roux, has moved up to the state level and taken him with her, creating a special troubleshooter job for him for the cases that are too complicated or politically touchy for others to handle.

In addition, Lucas is now married and a new father, both of which are fine with him: he doesn’t mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay — and he’s waiting for the bill.

It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are of a black man and a white woman, and they’re naked.

“Lynching” is the word that everybody’s trying not to say — but, as Lucas begins to discover, in fact the murders are not what they appear to be, and they are not the end of the story.

There is worse to come — much, much worse.
