Read 2 times. Last read September 18, 2018 to September 19, 2018.

Sandford has written 3 stand alone novels, Saturn Run (5 stars!), The Night Watch (3 stars) and this one, Dead Watch.

While interesting this didn't have the bite or flair of the Prey series novels. Jake Winter was like Lucas Davenport lite. The romance was not all that realistic and much of the action seemed contrived, also not quite realistic. There was Sandford's use of black humor at times and his great attention to the small details that don't add to the plot but certainly helps one see the overall atmosphere of a scene.

While not a bad book it's just not up to Sandford's usual work. It was released 12 years ago and I can see why Sandford didn't make this into a series. His Kidd series was much better but his Prey and Virgil Flowers series are about as good as it gets.
