Author Info
John Sandford
John Sandford is the pseudonym of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp.
After serving in the Korean War, John Sandford began his journalism career working in Missouri and Iowa before moving to Florida in 1970. He worked for "The Miami Herald" for eight years before moving again to Minnesota to work for "The Saint Paul Pioneer Press", where he became a popular columnist. In the mid-'80s, during what was then called the "Farm Crisis," Sandford, under his given name John Camp, wrote a five-part series focusing on the hardships of a Minnesota farming family. His reporting won him a Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. Several years later, Sandford published his first novel, "The Fool's Run", followed almost simultaneously by "Rules of Prey", the first novel in his popular Prey series, featuring policeman Lucas Davenport. Often revolving around a disturbing crime or demented criminal, the majority of Sandford's novels are psychological thrillers with tough characters and fast pacing.
Praise
"The imaginative con scheme is clever...but the biggest thrills occur when events don't go as planned."
From the Publisher
Annotation Computer hack Kidd and his lying lover LuEllen are plotting the ultimate sting. Their target is the wealthy and corrupt mayor of a small Mississippi river town. The set-up includes assuming false identities, buying a houseboat, and scamming local officials out of the million dollars the politicians have embezzled. The con is perfect until everything goes awry.
Editors Note Computer hack Kidd always plays both sides against the middle. His partner LuEllen is his lover, a liar and a thief. When two major politicians secretly embezzle over a million dollars, Kidd and LuEllen decide to steal the stash--and cover their tracks by blowing the whistle on the dirty officials. "A fast-moving delight, with dialogue that crackles!"--Publishers Weekly.
Editors Note 2 When fourteen-year-old Darrell Clark is mistakenly killed by local cops and the inevitable cover-up occurs, Marvel Atkins sets out to destroy the entire corrupt bureaucratic and political machine of Longstreet, Mississippi
