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.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In bestseller Sandford's strong sequel to 2022's The Investigator, Sen. Christopher Colles needs the skills of investigator Letty Davenport, who once worked for the powerful senator, who helped her get her current job with the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general. Colles wants her to go undercover to infiltrate Ordinary People, a group of American hackers who infiltrated the Russian rail system. The group maintained total control over Russian trains for months until $50 million in ransom was paid, but now the U.S. government fears that Ordinary People may be setting its sights on their own country. Evidence that the hackers are poking around natural gas networks has led Colles to worry that they may turn off natural gas for a northern city or cities in the middle of winter. Given that restarting that heating source could take weeks, such a cyberattack could cause massive fatalities. Letty agrees to the hazardous assignment, only to learn her mentor has another objective. Sandford keeps his foot on the gas throughout, without stretching plausibility too far. Lee Child fans will be hooked. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM Partners. (Apr.)"
