I’m into something a little weird here, the letter said. I don’t want to worry you, but if anything unusual should happen, get in touch with Kidd, okay?

Before Lucas Davenport and the brilliant Prey novels, there was Kidd—artist, computer whiz, and professional criminal—and his sometime partner / sometime 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 was dead. Jack was supposedly killed by a jittery security guard who caught him raiding a Texas 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 didn’t die because of what he was looking for—he died because of what he already knew.

For Kidd and LuEllen, infiltrating the firm is the first move. Discovering the secrets of its devious entrepreneur is the next. But it’s more than secrets—it’s a conspiracy, and it’s landed Kidd and LuEllen in the cross-hairs of an unknown assassin hell-bent on conning the life out of the ultimate con artists. Unless Kidd and LuEllen got to the bottom of it all quickly, the next bodies will be their own.

  • “Kidd makes a welcome return in a cleverly conceived cyber-thriller…Offers a full display of its author’s many gifts. These include his clean, no-frills style, his flawless ear for dialogue, and his precise reporter’s eye for character and setting. But the most impressive aspect of The Devil’s Code—and the true heart of the book—is its convincing re-creation of the arcane world of the professional hacker. Sandford’s familiarity with that world, together with his easy mastery of abstruse technical details, enhances the narrative at every turn, lending it an air of seamless, unobtrusive authenticity.”
