Prey fans everywhere have embraced the return of Sandford's other charismatic hero, Kidd—artist, computer whiz, and professional criminal—and his sometime partner, sometime lover, LuEllen.
And now here they are. In The Hanged Man's Song, a superhacker friend of Kidd's named Bobby suddenly disappears from cyberspace, and Kidd knows that isn't a good sign. Then, when he goes to Bobby's house, Kidd finds him dead on the floor, his head bashed in and his laptop missing—and Kidd knows that really isn't a good sign. The secrets on that laptop are potent enough to hang Kidd and everybody else in Bobby's circle, just to start with, so there's no question that Kidd and LuEllen have to try to track it down—not to mention that Kidd would dearly love to get his hands on the man who killed Bobby. But before Kidd can get very gar, the secrets start coming out anyway... and they're more staggering than even he had imagined. Because it's not just about the lives of a circle of friends and colleagues now, oh no—it's about something much, much bigger. And much, much scarier...
