Clayton Deese loves his barbeques and his killing jobs. They are easy
things to do and the money is good. As a small thin man, Deese finds
hurting jobs harder to do; still his boss Roger Smith, a former lawyer,
and now Louisiana's top loan shark, pays well, so Deese takes it on.
Tracking down victim Howell Paine is easy, but best-laid plans often do
not go as expected and bloody evidence gets left behind. When police
attempt to track down Deese, they find evidence of worse crimes and
multiple bodies at his home deep in the Louisiana swamp.
U.S. Marshall Lucas Davenport, along with Rae Givens and Bob Matees,
is called in to help Sandro Tremanty and his FBI team. Being
independently wealthy, Lucas only wants to go after badass killers and
Deese easily fits the bill, especially as the Marshalls realize his unusual
taste for human flesh. Yet with few clues, how will they find him?

Lucas Davenport tracks a prolific serial killer in the
newest nail-biter by #1 New York Times-bestselling
author John Sandford.
Clayton Deese looks like a small-time criminal, muscle for
hire when his loan shark boss needs to teach someone a
lesson. Now, seven months after a job that went south and
landed him in jail, Deese has skipped out on bail, and the
U.S. Marshals come looking for him. They don't much care
about a low-level guy--it's his boss they want--but Deese
might be their best chance to bring down the whole operation.
Then, they step onto a dirt trail behind Deese's rural
Louisiana cabin and find a jungle full of graves.
Now Lucas Davenport is on the trail of a serial killer who
has been operating for years without notice. His quarry is
ruthless, and--as Davenport will come to find--full of
surprises . . .
