I have to admit I did not finish this book; I read about a third. I just found it too "scattered' and I had a hard time even knowing what was going on. If I didn't have other books to read, I might have stuck with it, but I did not feel this was worth the effort. Usually I love Sandford, but this was certainly not my favorite. ( )

When a fellow computer whiz known as Sanford is killed under suspicious circumstances, Kidd, artists, computer hacker, and professional criminal finds himself in the crosshairs of a government investigation targeting a group of hackers calling themselves Firewall. Something's rotten in the state of Texas, and with the NSA, the FBI, and a pair of corporate assassins on their tails, Kidd and LuEllen are a short step ahead and a long way out on a limb.

A bit rough around the edges, but I didn't want to stop turning pages. ( )

this was a nice change. i have read quite a few code books, books about all the intricacies of the computer world and the terrorism that goes with it. for one the fact that again, i was drowned in middle eastern conflict (it seems lately that a book can't be written unless it is about that; which is sad, talk about not using any imagination) this one did touch on it but it was more about other things. again i quite liked it and would recommend it.

Another great thriller about Kidd, the 40-something hacker and painter, his best friend Luellen the thief, and a circle of shadowy hackers trying to protect themselves. A group calling itself Firewall has appeared and is causing the U.S. government to go after hackers to try to stop a computer attack. At the same time, a murder leads Kidd and Luellen to try to figure out who has named Kidd as a member of Firewall. Sandford's writing is fun and, although now quite dated technologically, moves quickly along. I continue to be surprised that these books haven't been turned in to movies, because there are great characters and engaging plots in each of his books. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425179885, Mass Market Paperback)

When Kidd—artist, computer whiz, and professional criminal—learns of a colleague’s murder, he doesn’t buy the official story: that a jittery security guard caught the hacker raiding the files of a high-tech Texas corporation. It’s not what his friend was looking for that got him killed. It’s 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 a secret—it’s a conspiracy. And it’s landed Kidd and LuEllen in the cross-hairs of an unknown assassin hellbent on conning the life out of the ultimate con artists…
