Publisher's Summary

When Kidd - artist, computer whiz, and professional criminal - learns of a colleague's murder, he doesn't buy the official story: that a jittery security guard caught the hacker raiding the files of a high-tech Texas corporation. It's not what his friend was looking for that got him killed. It's what he already knew. For Kidd and LuEllen, infiltrating the firm is the first move. Discovering the secrets of its devious entrepreneur is the next. But it's more than a secret....

It's a conspiracy. And it's landed Kidd and LuEllen in the cross-hairs of an unknown assassin hellbent on conning the life out of the ultimate con artists....

Really really should have a different narrator

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Having a hard time finishing it.

Would you be willing to try another book from John Sandford? Why or why not?

I really enjoy Sanford’s Davenport series but not getting a different narrator was a HUGE mistake. The first 2hrs i kept expecting Lucas behaviors/snark. The next couple of hours I I just couldn’t get into it. Wrong voice for the dialogue made it easy to tune out. Have 3hr left and am taking a break.

What aspect of Richard Ferrone’s performance would you have changed?

He does a wonderful job he just shouldn’t do different main characters from the same author.

Not Davenport

When I have tried a Sanford book other than Davenport and Flowers I am very disappointed. I do love all of those, but Kidd, are you Kidding? This one just leaves me flat and in fact I think I read this back in the paper library days. Maybe I'll finish this when I am totally desperate. Anyway, you just can't write a book about computer tech and think it will last for ten years.
