Prey fans everywhere have embraced the return of Sandford's other charismatic hero, Kidd, artist, computer whiz, and professional criminal, and his sometime partner, sometime lover, LuEllen.

In The Hanged Man's Song, a superhacker friend of Kidd's named Bobby suddenly disappears from cyberspace, and Kidd knows that isn't a good sign. Then, when he goes to Bobby's house, Kidd finds him dead on the floor, his head bashed in and his laptop missing, and Kidd knows that really isn't a good sign. The secrets on that laptop are potent enough to hang Kidd and everybody else in Bobby's circle, just to start with, so there's no question that Kidd and LuEllen have to try to track it down, not to mention that Kidd would dearly love to get his hands on the man who killed Bobby. But before Kidd can get very far, the secrets start coming out anyway...and they're more staggering than even he had imagined. Because it's not just about the lives of a circle of friends and colleagues now, oh no, it's about something much, much bigger. And much, much scarier.

Filled with the atmosphere, characters, and exceptional drama that have made John Sandford one of America's best-loved thriller writers, The Hanged Man's Song is a masterpiece of suspense. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Loved this book. To my knowledge, this is the first John Sandford book I've read. I know I've never read any of the Kidd novels. Enjoyed the characters very much and was sad when I finished the book simply because the story was over. I'll definitely look for more by this author and read more of the Kidd series. "

    " Sanford is most well known for his "Prey" series, but this features a different protagonist, a painter/hacker/thief named Kidd, and his frequent accomplice/love interest LuEllen. In this story, a crippled hacker is killed in rural Mississippi (where most hackers live) and his lap top full of a life time of political investigation dynamite is stolen. Our heroes team up with local activists to track down the killer. This is not War and Peace. However, it was a fast and fun read once I bought into the premise. The discussion of life underground was pretty interesting and the book does touch on some social issues about privacy, government surveillance and so on. "

    " John Sandford doesn't disappoint with this book--it is compelling, with interesting character besides Kidd and LuEllen. I thought that I actually prefer his book series with Lucas Davenport, the Prey novels, but this held my interest. Some of the intricate computer parts were beyond me, but that didn't ruin the all over effect. Kidd and LuEllen go out on a limb more than once, in trying to track down the murderer of Bobby, and to find what has happened to his laptop, which holds so much information on political figures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Crow | 1/21/2014

    " I really enjoy the Kidd books. This was an exceptional one if you're a computer geek. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 1/18/2014

    " Another of Sanford's characters, Kidd, and his cohort, LuEllen, find themselves dealing with politicians in the world of computers and murder. You can't beat Sanford! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MepoInc | 1/11/2014

    " I really liked this last book, too bad it is the last. I wish the author would have kept this series going. Good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 1/10/2014

    " I liked this one better than Night Crew which I finished Sunday, also by Sandford. This one had a tighter story with more suspense. Being a technothriller, it was funny how dated the technology is in it even only being 6 years old. Good light read though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ricardo | 1/6/2014

    " Very entertaining and easy to read. Sandford's Kidd and his sidekick Lou Ellen are back at it again and if you're not already a fan, it's hard not to be one by the end of the book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 12/31/2013

    " love the "Prey" books too "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crys Williams | 12/27/2013

    " This may be my favorite Sandford novel, behind Rules of Prey and Chosen Prey "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 12/11/2013

    " John Sanford is a favorite author. The Kidd stories are okay - written very well, but it's not Lucas Davenport! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 12/10/2013

    " A cyber thriller with occasional flashes of real humor. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gary | 9/6/2013

    " Did not like the characters "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbi | 6/3/2013

    " I love the Lucas Davenport series by this author, but the Kidd series-NOT SO MUCH. Don't know if I will give the rest of the series a shot or not. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 4/11/2013

    " Lousy, didn't finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/12/2013

    " Great book with a lot of twisted and turns which is Sandford's style. I recommend this with five stars "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynne | 1/1/2013

    " not that good. Lots of interesting techie talk and a few fandom murders. yawn-ish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindee Bowen | 9/17/2012

    " I had shied away from reading John Sandford's other series because I'm such a big fan of the Prey books. Although this one is quite a bit different (more of a political-technology thriller), I ended up really enjoying it. I'll have to look for the others in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Satchell | 6/29/2012

    " My second Kidd novel. Enjoyed very much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe O'c | 4/5/2012

    " Good; continuing character: Kidd and LuEllen. When one of their hacker friends is killed, Kidd and company start to trace back and find computer files being kept on influential people and bad guys in Washington DC; a little high on the tech talk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 2/11/2012

    " BOT, this was a good story. Very unexpected. "

    " Great book, great writer, great series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 7/15/2011

    " The best of the Kidd series by far. If you read any of the books in the series make it this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 5/17/2011

    " I've read it before. Its a nice distraction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 3/4/2011

    " Hard to put down and moves quickly. Elements of the story were predictable, but most were not. I may even read it again someday "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 2/14/2011

    " Great book. One of the Kidd series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jami | 9/29/2010

    " Computer hacker mystery that keeps you guessing and teaches you how vunerable you are because our lives really are "on-line". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 6/18/2010

    " I liked this one better than Night Crew which I finished Sunday, also by Sandford. This one had a tighter story with more suspense. Being a technothriller, it was funny how dated the technology is in it even only being 6 years old. Good light read though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 5/22/2010

    " In enjoyed the Kidd and LuEllen series, though they now come across as dated. I wouldn't at all mind it if Sandford resurrected these characters, but then he's got his hands full with Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 3/18/2010

    " Really enjoyed Sandford bringing back Kidd and Luellen- been too many years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 3/2/2010

    " Sandford has a minor series that revolves around the cards in a Tarot deck.

    This is the best in that series.

    Some of his standalone novels are great also. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mukta | 12/18/2009

    " This is the last of the Kidd novels. It is always exciting to see Kidd, LuEllen, John and Marvel work togther. The villain is much more sadistic than usual and the crime is far more heinous. Fast, fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gary | 12/14/2009

    " Did not like the characters "
