“Hard-boiled computer hacker Kidd and his sometime girlfriend LuEllen make for a refreshingly roguish couple” (Entertainment Weekly). Now they’re back in #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford’s electrifying novel of murder, intrigue, and revenge—Kidd style.

When Kidd’s superhacker friend Bobby is murdered and his laptop is stolen, Kidd knows it’s panic time. The secrets stashed in Bobby’s computer are enough to hang Kidd and everyone else in Bobby’s criminally ingenious cyber-circle. It’s up to Kidd and his partner LuEllen to track it down, find Bobby’s killer, and save their own necks—because the secrets are downloading faster than anyone anticipated. And they’re far more staggering than anyone imagined.
