Prey fans everywhere have embraced the return of Sandford's other charismatic hero, Kidd, artist, computer whiz, and professional criminal, and his sometime partner, sometime lover, LuEllen.In The Hanged Man's Song, a superhacker friend of Kidd's named Bobby suddenly disappears from cyberspace, and Kidd knows that isn't a good sign. Then, when he goes to Bobby's house, Kidd finds him dead on the floor, his head bashed in and his laptop missing, and Kidd knows that really isn't a good sign. The secrets on that laptop are potent enough to hang Kidd and everybody else in Bobby's circle, just to start with, so there's no question that Kidd and LuEllen have to try to track it down, not to mention that Kidd would dearly love to get his hands on the man who killed Bobby. But before Kidd can get very far, the secrets start coming out anyway...and they're more staggering than even he had imagined. Because it's not just about the lives of a circle of friends and colleagues now, oh no, it's about something much, much bigger. And much, much scarier.Filled with the atmosphere, characters, and exceptional drama that have made John Sandford one of America's best-loved thriller writers, The Hanged Man's Song is a masterpiece of suspense.

What the Critics Say

"This latest intelligent and exciting thriller proves a worthy addition to Sandford's overall body of work." (Publishers Weekly)
"Richard Ferrone's gruff voice fits the novel's tone. His intense style keeps the story moving and gives the characters vitality." (AudioFile)
"Ultimately, thrillers are defined by the scariness of the villains, and the bad guys Kidd contends with are a special breed indeed, capable of rendering lives meaningless by the thousands with a few key strokes. Clear a spot on the best-seller lists for this timely and entertaining thriller." (Booklist)

Great Kidd Novel

Another of Sandford's Kidd novels, this one takes us around the country documenting gambling rip offs and computerized shenanigans. It was an enjoyable book to listen to, and the narrator was my favorite. He undrestood Sandford, and understood the context well enough to translate it with a bit of a vocal edge.
