Lucas Davenport #5.
A spectactular multiple murder in the Wisconsin woods. Inconveniently near where Davenport has his cabin, and he gets involved. There's a child porn ring involved, and a gutsy local doctor who saves Davenport after a child shoots him in the throat.
This one has quite a strong feel of the cold winter weather—it's definitely colder there than here in the Twin Cities.
The doctor becomes an ongoing character.
Sandford has a useful web site with reading order, publication date, and useful synopses (useful for reminding my which book goes with which title, anyway).
