Summary:

Through twenty-one novels featuring Lucas Davenport, Kidd, or the razor-edge world of the Night Crew, John Sandford has been writing brilliantly suspenseful, consistently surprising thrillers filled with rich characters and exceptional drama.

But Dead Watch sets a whole new level.

Early morning, Virginia, and a woman is on the run. Her husband, a former U.S. Senator, has been missing for days. Kidnapped? Murdered? She doesn't know, but she thinks she knows who's involved, and why. And that she's next.

Hours later in Washington, D.C., a cell phone rings. The White House chief of staff needs Jacob Winter now. His chief investigator and an Army Intelligence veteran, Winter knows how to move quickly and decisively, but he's never faced a problem like this. The disappearances are bad, but when the blackened body shows up barbed-wired to a tree, Winter knows there is much worse to come. And soon enough, there is. Large forces are at work, determined to do whatever it takes to achieve their ends. Winter will have to use all his resources not only to prevail but also to survive. And so will the nation. . . .

    I am such a fan of Sandford that perhaps I am a hard judge to review his books. This was not one of my favorites and became predictable. I suppose I was also expecting an unpredicable ending with a twist.

    John Sandford is one of my favorite authors. This book is fast paced & it keeps you interested from beginning to end. I love all the twist & suspense in this book. The language is alittle much but as you get to know the characters, the rough language fits them to a tee. I enjoyed the book & would highly recommend it.

    I am a huge fan of Lucas Davenport series, and this was as good as those. Written in much the same tone and tempo, Sandford thrills and twists during the story. I thought everything was wrapped up a bit to neat at the end, but overall a very good read.
