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)

Excellent story, convoluted, but satisfying

Twisted & full of untrustworthy politicians. And peppered with Sandford's signature humor. Why did he not write more novels of this character? And Ferrone is great in delivering the Sandford humor & drama.

Not Davenport, But Good

I think it has to be difficult to write a book with a different lead character than one you've been using for quite some time. There's Virgil, but the locations are the same so I think he sort of thinks like he's a young Lucas Jacob is a different character in a different location. Neither Sanford's writing or Ferone's reading the part ever made me think of Lucas. Except all of Sanford's main characters are very clever, brave, and good at figuring things out. A very good listen
