*at least* three times. Crazy, I know. But Sanford/Camp can really write-for a northerner. Tongue-in-cheek joke there.
Having read all those books all those times, I gotta say, Kidd is my favorite. Mainly because Sanford is writing in the first person, and I like the perspective he gives it. Kidd is a complex character-very smart, very talented, not mean-but pretty dangerous. And actually, a pretty moral guy. About half-honest, but loyal to those he cares about. Sanford, writing in the first person, has the license to show the reader Kidd in a more personal way. This episode, Kidd’s first, really sets the stage for the next three books in his series. If you’ve read any of the “Prey” or “Flowers” books, I would be very surprised if you didn’t like this. I really like al, three series; I got bored early with Saturn Run & Face Off, and I’ll admit I haven’t read Sanford’s non-fiction-probably my mistake.in fact, while I’m waiting for the next “Prey” book-“Ocean Prey”-to come out, I think I’ll read one of his non-fiction titles. I read his collaborative teen books written with his wife-liked those, too.
Unfortunately, from what Sanford has said, there won’t be any more Kidd books-though he shows up in a couple of the “Prey” series. Apparently the Kidd books never sold as well. The almighty dollar leers with it’s ugly visage. But give this series a shot. Damn good writing. Fer a northerner!
For those who enjoy character development, interesting plot, and fun dialogue, you will find this series easy, fun, and quick reads. The first book is a bit technical, computer wise, but is written so that even if I don't understand technically, I follow plot wise, and stay connected to the story. This book was like meeting a new old friend.

I love the Prey and Virgil books and am disappointed I didn't enjoy this.
