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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 2/13/2014

    " If you need a book for a four hour flight, you could do worse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri | 2/2/2014

    " I really like his Kidd books over the prey books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/29/2014

    " A decent example of the spy thriller genre. I don't think I'd go out of my way to read a Sandford again as his style is too herky-jerky for me. Overall, a good story, barely decently told. But, I needed a good crime fiction and it worked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 1/22/2014

    " this Author is keeping me happy my kindle is hot from all the reading lam doing "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 1/14/2014

    " Being a huge John Sandford enthusiast, I was looking forward to more action and intrigue with this book but I felt a bit let down after reading this one. Don't get me wrong, I did like it, however I never felt the need to stick with it or keep reading. I thought Kidd and LuEllen were boring, no chemistry, just "empty." I don't know, I just fell as though this book was missing too much and not up to the usual John Sandford books I love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 1/13/2014

    " I like this series of novels. The way Sandford combines discussion of art, computer hacking, and general thievery really entertains me. It's like I've found a set of books that combines several of my enjoyments into a set thrilling suspense novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony Steinman | 1/4/2014

    " bit too technical "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby Fick | 12/11/2013

    " Can't quite ever give the Kidd books more than 3 stars, but they are all GOOD and deserve to be read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Close | 12/5/2013

    " Suspenseful, with good character interaction. Nicely crafted story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 11/13/2013

    " I love the entire Kidd & LuEllen series, they are so much fun. This one did not disappoint. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt Allen | 10/26/2013

    " A decent caper that fans of Sandford will enjoy. It's a quick read and the action moves swiftly enough to keep your nose in the spine. Those unfamiliar with this author are better off reading the Prey series, which is his best work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 10/14/2013

    " A by the numbers thriller that does not stand the test of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 10/14/2013

    " Made me think long and hard about what is reality . Made me wonder what is really the truth, "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jon | 9/3/2013

    " This is the third in the Kidd- Luellen series by Sanford, but it is the first I have read. I was a little familiar with Kidd from some cameos in the Lucas Davenport series. This was okay, no where near as good as Davenport or Flowers. I will probably try others in the series as I enjoy Sanford. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 8/25/2013

    " I like Sandford's "Prey" novels, but this is the first of his novels I've read with Kidd and LuEllen characters. Pretty good vacation reading about high-tech conspiracy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mitch | 6/7/2013

    " Not as good as the first two, but still entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cammie | 4/24/2013

    " I've read every book John Sandford has written. I buy them in hard cover because once I know he has a new one out I cannot wait for the paperback. Davenport, Flowers and Kidd are some of the most memorable antagonists you'll ever meet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/18/2013

    " I first read Devil's Code when it came out in 2000. It's probably the best of Sandford's Kidd/LuEllen series and it's a barn-burner. I just re-read it in June 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it, again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy Brooks | 11/17/2012

    " It's a John Sandford novel. Very fast read, good action, and a lot of fun. The story is dated, since it involves the characters being online a lot. With their dial up acoustically coupled modems. But it's a whole lot of fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 6/5/2012

    " Great book about computer hackers and crooked defense contractors. Another great "Kidd" book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pattykaykar | 4/17/2012

    " Exciting, fast moving, novel ideas for mystery, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 3/15/2012

    " Good Sandford novel featuring Kidd & LuEllen. Exciting, fast, fun, but if you're not into computers it may not do much for you. If you are into computers it might seem dated, but I recommend it to anyone who enjoys fast paced mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Todd | 1/6/2012

    " This is my first book by Sandford I have read. Not bad, and easy read that made me want to finish it to see what happens. I liked the plot but alot of the twists I could see coming. A good book to have with you to pass time while waiting. Makes me want to read more by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 12/9/2011

    " continuing in the "Kidd" series, not as much punch as the others. but still a good bedtime read. "
