Richard Ferrone has performed almost all of John Sandford's books. He also knows how to ratchet up the excitement, which is especially important as Sandford starts all of his action sentences with verbs. Jake Winter is a welcome addition to the author's cast of characters. One hopes that Winter will join Sandford's other protagonists-Lucas Davenport, Kidd, and the "Night Crew"-and become a Sandford regular.

Best-selling author John Sandford takes all the action and suspense of his acclaimed Prey novels and heads west to the dark gleam of . where the Night Crew works. A mobile unit of video freelancers, they prowl the midnight streets to sell to the highest network bidder.

Listened to this as an audiobook. A refreshing change from the increasingly redundant Lucas Davenport series. In this case we follow Jacob, "Jake," Winter, a "forensic bureaucracy specialist.

Narrated by Richard Ferrone. The New York Times bestselling author of the Lucas Davenport novels delivers a page-turner with a new hero, breakneck pace&.

John Sandford rrowed from one of the occupied offices. Jake told them that he didn’t want a lawyer, but he did want to talk to Novatny privately, and wouldn’t make any other statement. The FBI man went away for a while, then came back and said, Agent Novatny will be here in three hours. He’s flying straight in from Washington.

From the author of the #1 bestselling Prey novels comes an extraordinary story of murder, passion, and deadly ambition-a political thriller like no other. Abridged CDs - 5 CDs, 6 hours


Dead Watch introduces a new lead character, Jacob Winter, to the list of John Sandford's creations. Winter works out of Washington and is a political "fixer" - meaning he is the man who gets certain jobs done that the politicians want kept low-key.

In this novel, a well-known politician disappears under suspicious circumstances and Winter is asked to investigate. There are no end of possible suspects ranging from the Governor, the missing man's former gay partner, the missing man's wife and others.

The story is quite good for the most part. Sandford writes a very readable novel where one can relate to the lead character and there are always amusing moments in the novels. The action part of the book near the end is a bit far-fetched but I assume the author needed a resolution that he was comfortable with.

I think this was the only Winter outing so far, Sandford has such strong leads with Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers, he doesn't really need another lead.
John Roswell Camp, aka John Sandford, is the author of nearly four dozen books, the bestselling 25-book Prey series most prominent among them. Lucas Davenport of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension stars in the series, often assisted by the crack investigator Virgil Flowers (who sports his own eight-book series).
A new bestselling series?

Dead Watch bears all the signs of a new series coming on. Sandford has moved the setting from the Twin Cities to Washington, DC, where Jacob Winter works as a freelance “researcher” for the White House. However, job description is a euphemism; he’s a political trouble-shooter. Jake is 33 years old and is a former soldier in the Special Forces in Afghanistan, where he was wounded in the leg by shrapnel and now uses a cane to help him get around. The President’s Chief of Staff has called Jake in to wrestle a particularly threatening crisis to the ground: a former right-wing U.S. Senator from Virginia has disappeared, and his outspoken wife is making loud noise about it. Jake’s assignment: to find the missing Senator as quickly as possible. Though Jake, like the President, is a moderate Democrat and the missing Senator’s wife, Madison Bowe, shares her husband’s Republican politics, the chemistry starts boiling between the two when they meet early in the course of Jake’s investigation.
The plot thickens

Madison (“Maddy”) is convinced that the Governor of Virginia, Arlo Goodman, has kidnapped her husband. The Bowes’ hatred for the Governor runs deep: Goodman used dirty tricks to sabotage the Senator’s reelection campaign. Goodman, though nominally a Democrat, has created a paramilitary force called The Watchers, which Maddy and Jake both suspect is behind the Senator’s disappearance. However, the story is far more complicated than that — and it’s suspenseful to the end.

Jake Winter is a fascinating character with sufficient depth to become the protagonist of another long-running Sandford series. I, for one, would like to see that happen.

Before turning to writing fiction full-time, Sandford worked for The Miami Herald and later The Saint Paul Pioneer Press, where he won a Pulitzer for features writing.
John Sandford has a unique talent for adapting his writing style to fit the personalities and characteristics of his main characters. In he does his usual exemplary job of developing his characters and establishing an intimate connection with his reader. Stanford's frequent dry humor helps the pace of the book, giving the reader a breather and a smile--just before the next exciting development.
This is one of my favorite Sandford books and that is saying a lot, because there are so many others!
As a devoted reader of John Sanford Prey series thought I'd venture a different set of characters to read. Sanford really has a great way of spinning a story. I was hooked on this book after about the second chapter and kept turning the pages. This writer can really write a good mystery. Only negative issue I have with Sanford is he definitely leans to the left in politics.....wish he could get away from that.
A little slow to get into but as always Sandford spins a good tale. Spoiler alert (or maybe not): I was waiting to see what kind of help promised by Winter he would get the Levine character ( one who provided package). Either I missed it or his promise was forgotten about. Seemed strange since he helped Dorn. Did Sanford forget to include?
I've read all of Sanford's series books, including Flowers,
Davenport, The artist even the emotional reader and this one stacks right up there. I have a feeling this didn't take off like Virgil or Lucas as the guy is just too inside the hard part of politics, which is far to real to be enjoyable. I enjoyed e.g. the "Wag the dog" movie but I don't want to see a sequel. Too depressing. Good but too true to life.
John Sanford has a way with story telling that hooks you from the first chapter, until the very end. He is one of the best writers if our time. This book involves a very complex mystery that has a grizzly murder to start everything off. The investigation has the White House, the FBI, and the various State Law enforcement authorities involved. By the time all is done, several bad guys are dead, as well as several others involved. Never does the book get boring or cluttered. There is a bit of everything in this book and I honestly can't say one bad thing about it. I'll definitely keep buying the series of books. I've read nearly all of John Sanford's work, and I can't recall anything I didn't like.
I finished this book and it was okay. I didn't enjoy it as much as the Prey or Virgil Flowers books. Didn't like the characters as much. Also, I hope our government isn't as corrupt as this book indicates. My guess is, some government folks are this bad, maybe worse. Story line runs pretty parallel with today's news.
