Track My Order. My Wishlist Sign In Join. Be the first to write a review. In recent years as a senior officer of the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension , he has been able to call on the services of several specialized research professionals. Beyond these things, he is lucky, a characteristic mentioned in more than one book. He is not above skirting the law and accepted procedures to move a case forward. He even uses news media contacts to leak secrets to freak out criminal suspects or motivate laggard senior officialdom.
Unforeseen civilian deaths sometimes result from these schemes. Davenport is a police celebrity, having shot and killed many suspects in the line of duty. Quite apart from those deaths caused in spontaneous gunfights, Davenport has been suspected—appropriately—of engineering some outcomes so that the death of a miscreant is virtually certain.
Unusually for a police officer, he has more than once been a target of assassination attempts by criminals; his numerous contacts in the media consider him a good interview, but editors persistently criticize his violence. Davenport feels no hesitation about killing defenseless criminals who present no threat to him.

Sarah lives with her mother and a stepfather, and Davenport visits her frequently. As the series progresses, Davenport settles down with and eventually marries the highly paid maxillofacial surgeon Weather Karkinnen, who in Winter Prey saved his life by performing an emergency tracheotomy with what Lucas called a " jackknife.
