The second book in the Lucas Davenport series. I liked this one better, I think, because I was rooting a little bit more for the bad guys - at least some of them.
The basic idea is that a group of indian assassins are knocking off people who have done them wrong. But there is an interesting subplot about a pedophile who has managed to end up in a position of power.
My only complaint is that there isn't more discussion of his baby and on again / off again girlfriend who was introduced in the first book. Hopefully more in book 3.
