'NAKED' LAUNCH

Ah, Minnesota! It must be something in the water -- remember, it's the Land of 10,000 Lakes -- that makes thriller writer and North Star State resident John Sandford so very productive. Naked Prey is the 14th book in his ever-popular Prey series, and this week it hits the best-seller chart like a blizzard, storming straight to No. 1. In nonfiction, Robert Dallek's new JFK bio, An Unfinished Life, had a lively finish in its first week on the chart. It opens at No. 2.
