John Sandford’s Second Letty Davenport Announced


On April 11, 2023, Letty Davenport returns in Dark Angel, the next must-read novel from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist turned #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford.

Letty Davenport, the brilliant and tenacious adopted daughter of Sandford’s iconic protagionist Lucas Davenport, took on her first starring role in The Investigator (2022), which saw her head to Texas in order to investigate the shadowy force behind a string of crude oil robberies that quickly took a deadly turn. This time around, Letty will be in Minneapolis (a familiar setting to fans of the series) hoping to track down a dangerous group of hackers who have threatened to take down the power grid.

Check out the official plot details below.


The second book featuring Letty Davenport, the tough-as-nails adopted daughter of Lucas Davenport, this time taking on an undercover case that brings her across the country—and into the most dangerous group she has ever faced.

When a group of hackers threatens to take over the power grid of Minneapolis—putting thousands of lives at risk—the Department of Homeland Security and the NSA team up to prevent the attack. They need to find out who these dangerous hackers are…and they need to do it quickly. Letty Davenport, the twentysomething daughter of Lucas Davenport, is brought on board to go undercover and infiltrate the group. Posing as a rogue programmer for hire, she and her reluctant partner from the NSA, Rod Baxter, head to Los Angeles to find the illusive group before it is too late.



John Sandford is the pseudonym for the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp. He is the author of thirty Prey novels; four Kidd novels; twelve Virgil Flowers novels; three YA novels coauthored with his wife, Michele Cook; and three other books.
