John Sandford's latest Kidd novel is a thriller for the computer age. Someone has killed Kidd's cyberfriend, and he's determined to solve the mystery. In the process, Kidd must deal with assassins, politicians, and a coterie of other suspects. Although his actions and insights are nothing short of astounding, the book remains thoroughly enjoyable, and computer lovers will enjoy all the geeky detail. Richard Ferrone's gruff voice fits the novel's tone. His intense style keeps the story moving and gives the characters vitality. Sandford's fans will not be disappointed with the conclusion, when all the pieces finally fit together. D.J.S.
