Synopsis: Kidd's a pretty good painter, but it's his computer genius that pays the rent. And when the billionaire owner of Anshiser Aviation offers him his biggest ever payday - to deal with corporate espionage and wreak havoc on the computer system of Anchiser's rival, for whom he has worked in the past - Kidd jumps at the chance. For this money, he'll even work with a team - LuEllen, a cat burglar, and Dace, a journalist who will do anything for a scoop. But Kidd finds that computer fraud is child's play compared with the defence industry's Machiavellian games, and lives are soon on the line in the cool high-tech thriller. Authentic, fast-moving and ingenious, The Fool's Run is not only the first novel featuring Kidd, but it marks the debut of John Sandford as one of the world's premier thriller writers.
