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.

"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)

Political Thriller

This isn't your usual John Sandford "Prey" mystery. You might think it was written by a different man -- and it's great! Unlike many political thrillers, this one is easy to follow -- there are conspiracies and surprises -- but you never feel as though you got lost in a maze. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good whodunit.

Great paced

All I can say is I hope this is not the last we see of Jake Winter. This character has the makings of another Lucas Davenport. The story is fast paced and draws you in from the beginning. I was never dissapointed except at the end when it was over. I wanted more.
