Publisher's Summary

Before Lucas Davenport and the brilliant Prey novels, there was Kidd (artist, computer whiz, and professional criminal) and his sometimes partner/sometimes lover, LuEllen. The army left Kidd with a dislike for bureaucracy and the skills to do something about it, but it didn't prepare him for the day a woman would call and tell him his colleague Jack Morrison is dead. Jack was supposedly killed by a jittery security guard when he was caught raiding a company's files in the middle of the night, but that story just doesn't sit right with Kidd. The more he investigates the company and its ambitious owner, the more convinced he becomes that Jack stumbled onto something that got him murdered. And that unless he and LuEllen get to the bottom of it all quickly, the next bodies might very well be their own.Saturated with the atmosphere, characters, and exceptional drama that have made John Sandford one of America's best-loved thriller writers, The Devil's Code is a masterpiece of suspense, a richly layered novel, filled with the unexpected. It is truly vintage Sandford.


What the Critics Say

"The thriller, a high-tech suspense novel in which superior intelligence defeats money and power, is augmented by Frank Muller's flawless narration....Muller is particularly effective in distinguishing the voices and personalities of the characters, and gives each scene the drama it deserves." (Publishers Weekly)
"Kidd is a unique protagonist whose toughness is derived not from flashing fists or big guns but from superior intellect and moral certitude." (Booklist)

Sandford and Muller

This is early John Sandford and not as slick as his Lucas Davenport character, and thats both good and bad, I find it refreshing to see Sandford with a different main character and one that is different while at the same time shows the promise of the Davenport that is to come, the books moves quickly and smoothly into Sandfords world of not so nice people on both sides of the law. Also I love hearing Peter Mullers voice once again, among readers for me, Muller, Brick and Dale are in a league of their own and Mullers readings will greatly be missed. I give this audio book 4 stars for its storyline and narration, while holding back that 5th star only because it is rough around the edges compared to his new attempts, but i highly recommend it to all Sandford fans.
