I read this book until 3 am and finished it afer several hours of sleep. Kidd is hired to sabotage a rival company's computer system. He in turn hires a female cat burglar to help. I am a retired computer programmer and this book really held me.

This book is part of a 2-book series. I read them out of order because of the publisher's comments on the back of each one. It said that The Fool's Run was the sequel to the The Empress File. It's actually the other way around......... I love these two characters... Kidd and LuEllen. They are very intelligent, ingenious and fun-loving people. I can't believe they get away with all of the mischief they cause, but its a fast, fun read. I'd love it if John Camp (Sandford) would continue this series! John Sandford writes very intelligent, suspenseful books. I'm already hooked on his "Prey" series. Every year I patiently await the arrival of the next sequel

I really enjoyed this book. AS Kidd gets his assignment, hires Luellen and Dace, and begins his project, it is just fast enough to keep you interested.Then, right around the time Dace dies, it really picks up. THe plot centers around this Tarot-reading, Computer-hacking painter who is hired by a military defense company to sabatoge another company's computer systm. This book was areally good read and I can't wait to read 'the empress file'
