As a die-hard John Sandford fan (I've read most of the Prey series and all the Kidd series plus a couple of stand alones). I bought this and finished it in a day, and it was indeed a page-turner.

Yet, it fell short of the Prey and Kidd series.

I think the thing that makes certain political thrillers work and others fail is character construction, and for me, there were a few too many characters to keep track of, and it's a fairly convoluted plot as well.

I think the main character, Jake Winter, has a lot of potential, he's consided a
"forensic bureaucrat". It's a unique approach for a protagonist and one that could open up a new avenue for Sandford.

All in all I give it 4 stars; it kept me interested, and was a quick and easy read, but at times was a bit hard to follow, like the conversation on a where references are made to people, events and places with which you're unfamiliar.

I look forward to the return of Kidd or Lucas, but I would read another Jake Winter novel.

This political thriller, featuring quirky Jacob Winter, kept me turning the pages all the way to the end. I usually get bored with stories with a heavy political theme. However, this book kept the political aspects fresh and relevant to the plot. Dead Watch was well written with a well developed storyline.

A FAST read with turns at every corner. Political at the national and state level. Jack Winter is an excellent main character who takes the reader along for a fast ride.
