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.
