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....

boring book

i love lucas Davenport and virgil Flowers stories. all good and page turners. I like the Minnesota humar and the charactors. I am sad that Lucas is now a US Marshal instead of in the Bureau of Criminal Amprehension because i like the regional angles. But this book and the technical computer stuff and dated charactors and no stories is bad. couldnt finish and i will not read another story about Kidd. So John Sanford dont wast your time writing about this charactor.

Sanford writes books that give me insomnia!

I’ve been a huge fan of John Sandford books for years because they are so well researched and written. I listened to this entire book within a 24 hour period because the story was so well constructed, I couldn’t stop until the book ended. Now, I’m on the trail of reading anything he’s written that I haven’t yet read👍🏼

Not my first choice

I am 9 chapters in and apparently didn’t read the 1st 2 books in the series. I don’t know how I will get through this with this narrator. I’m going to be very sad if his voice is like this in other books. I also find that I prefer Davenport and Flowers way more than Kidd. I miss the MN references.

Ok read waiting for Davenport or Flowers

Richard Ferrone was great is usually is but the subject matter was a little bit tedious. Perhaps if Lucas or Virgil had been consulted things might have spit up a little bit. I listen to the first half of this book and then actually listen to the next book in this series before I realized I had not finished this one. with most of John Sandford books I don't stop listening until I'm finished with the book period still while waiting for Lucas and Virgil to reappear it was worth listening

Unlike other Sandford novels, this felt disjointed

I found this novel more disjointed than the typical Sandford novel. So, I enjoyed it less. However, the tech ideas were engaging.

Another John Sandford masterwork.

Another John Sandford masterwork. It' s full of tense drama with enough credible data to keep the story moving and very interesting.

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.
