Letty Davenport, the tough-as-nails adopted daughter of Lucas Davenport, takes on an undercover assignment that brings her across the country and into the crosshairs of a dangerous group of hackers.

Letty Davenport’s days working a desk job at are behind her. Her previous actions at a gunfight in Texas—and her incredible skills with firearms—draw the attention of several branches of the US government, and make her a perfect fit for even more dangerous work. The Department of Homeland Security and the NSA have tasked her with infiltrating a hacker group, known only as Ordinary People, that is intent on wreaking havoc. Letty and her reluctant partner from the NSA pose as free-spirited programmers for hire and embark on a cross country road trip to the group’s California headquarters.

While the two work to make inroads with Ordinary People and uncover their plans, they begin to suspect that the hackers are not their only enemy. Someone within their own circle may have betrayed them, and has ulterior motives that place their mission—and their lives—in grave danger.

As someone who has read all of John Sandford’s books, I don’t know what to think of this one. It’s just different. The plotting is different. The character development is different. And there are some things in it that had me scratching my head as to how this was John Sandford writing this, particularly the dialogue between characters. It was one-dimensional and even frustrating much too often. And the stereotypes and tropes became too common and the story itself seemed to wander. I particularly didn’t like how twenty-something Letty has suddenly become this bigger than life super-agent killer who always has the right answers, never does anything wrong, and is invincible no matter what she does. That wasn’t the Letty of her last novel or any of the Prey novels. There’s no sense of mortality or vulnerability to her. And pairing her with a female CIA bigger than life super-agent killer who comes away like an identical twin didn’t enhance the story so much as flatten it more. I don’t know what happened on this one, particularly after so many solid novels. But I’ll still get the next one.

Pretty decent story, certainly timely, main character is likeable but the ending was too neat. However, I understand why, maybe the Russian villain returns.
