VOICE PERFORMANCE PAR EXCELLENCE
Television actor and voice performer par excellence Richard Ferrone has recorded eleven of John Sandford's "Prey" novels. One would be hard pressed to find a more articulate, compelling performer to bring these thrillers to life.
With "The Hanged Man's Song," fans will welcome the return of Sandford's popular protagonist, Kidd. This man can do anything - he's an accomplished computer hacker, an artist and a Tarot card reader. Unlike Sandford's other hero, Minneapolis police detective Lucas Davenport who is found in the blockbuster "Prey" series, Kidd isn't completely law abiding. Inside or outside the law he does whatever it takes to get the job done.
And, this time out he has quite a task cut out for him. Bobby, the world's foremost computer hacker, has been brutally beaten to death and his laptop is missing. Big trouble for Kidd as there are secrets hidden there that he doesn't want revealed. Enlisting the comfort and support of his sometimes lover, LuEllen, Kidd sets out to track down the deadliest of villains - those who kill with a few taps on a keyboard.
Sandford never disappoints, so brace yourselves for an action-packed listen.

A FIRST RATE BOOK
This was my first john sandford book and it was a great first choice it is the type of book that you could read in one sitting definitely fast paced i did find in the first few pages had alot of metaphors that were kind of annoying but then this book really takes off.
Mr.kidd who is the main character who is a memeber of computer ring of geeks (who happens to be a professional criminal, an artist and at times a reader of tarot cards) gets a message that is possibly problems with one of his geek friends.When he and one of his friends go to investigate they find his geek friend bobby with a crushed skull and his computer missing.
Mr. Kidd having fear that members of the ring and some of the deeds they have done might be exposed and wanting to find out who killed bobby and why begins to search and finds out there maybe information on the computer that could bring many high placed political officials down.
Give this book a read it is well worth it
