Publisher's Summary

Through 21 novels featuring Lucas Davenport, Kidd, or the razor-edge world of the Night Crew, John Sandford has been writing brilliantly suspenseful, consistently surprising thrillers filled with rich characters and exceptional drama.

But Dead Watch sets a whole new level.

Early morning, Virginia, and a woman is on the run. Her husband, a former U.S. Senator, has been missing for days. Kidnapped? Murdered? She doesn't know, but she thinks she knows who's involved, and why. And that she's next.

Hours later in Washington, D.C., a cell phone rings. The White House chief of staff needs Jacob Winter now. His chief investigator and an Army Intelligence veteran, Winter knows how to move quickly and decisively, but he's never faced a problem like this. The disappearances are bad, but when the blackened body shows up barbed-wired to a tree, Winter knows there is much worse to come. And soon enough, there is. Large forces are at work, determined to do whatever it takes to achieve their ends. Winter will have to use all his resources not only to prevail but also to survive. And so will the nation.

What the Critics Say

"Sandford...displays an insider's knowledge of political infighting and couples it with his skill at creating memorable characters working through the maze of a diabolical plot." (Booklist)

    "Not bad"

    By far, not my favorite John Sandford novel, but i doubt he writes anything bad. I didn't find the main characters as memorable as some he's written, but i overall, enjoyed this book.

    "Sanford does it again"
    Where does Dead Watch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    John Sanford is one of the authors who I always want to read as soon as he releases a new story for us. Even though I didn't enjoy this one as much as a Lucas Davenport or Virgil Flowers, DEAD WATCH was definitely a book I would recommend to other readers and would possibly read (or I should say listen to again).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Madison. I wasn't completely sure how far she was involved in her husband's death and found it intriguing to watch her character develop.


    What about Eric Conger’s performance did you like?

    Eric Confer's performance was very good, but I do wish there was a little more inflection between characters during conservations.
