    Well what can I say, this is Flowers!!! Two cases draw Flowers off his vacation, unwillingly as fans know how seriously Flowers takes his time off, which more often than not, he doesn't ever complete. A woman found dead, in the lake, a prominent member of the community, owner of the local bank, and Barbie and Ken dolls being altered in a sexual way. So we get the usual suspects of stereotypical type that seem to populate this place, people who ar...

    A while ago I expressed a view that Michael Connelly is the best storyteller in the crime fiction. Whilst I’m not looking to recant this view I will say that I think John Sandford runs Connelly very close. They both have their own way of telling a tale: Connelly typically shows you the crime and then documents the chase for an unknown criminal (the classic, most often adopted form); in Sandford’s books you not only see the crime but you nearl...

    I received a free advance copy from NetGalley for review.I got sneak preview of this one last spring when I made a long drive to attend a John Sandford signing, and he told us about the current book he was fighting a deadline on that he was going to have to spend the evening working on when he got back to the hotel. All work and no play may make Jack a dull boy, but it makes John one of the best and most productive thriller writers on the bestsel...

    There’s always a sense of humor to the Virgil Flowers series. Sometimes it’s dry, sometimes it’s laugh out loud funny. But it’s always there. This was a fun book to listen to. There more thinking than action, as Virgil tries to figure out who the murderer is. I liked Virgil’s thought process as he works through all the possible suspects. The whole Barbie-oh subplot is just a hoot.

    “That f-----g Virgil Flowers,” a sobriquet used at least once by everyone who comes in contact with him. Ace investigator with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), wild-life writer and photographer, hunter, fisherman, and loyal friend, Virgil is pulled early from his vacation and send back to Trippton, Minnesota. In the recent past he arrested and charged with murder the entire school board and newspaper editor. Yep, Virgil su...

    I'd love to meet Virgil Flowers. There. I said it. He's long been a favorite character (this is, I believe, his 10th book). Actually, so is the author's other series hero, Lucas Davenport, but Virgil always won out (if only by a little bit). I'm not exactly sure why, except Virgil has that "bad boy" appeal - coupled with an irresistible offbeat - many would say irreverent - sense of humor.But Virgil wasn't all that thrilled to get involved here, ...

    Another good Virgil Flowers book. I started to get a little bored about through. Sometimes I felt like there was one voice in this book and everyone was using it.

    I have adored John Sandfords writing for years now. I'm a faithful reader of his Lucas Davenport series, and Virgil Flowers had been a character I enjoyed from the very beginning.Deep Freeze was my first Virgil Flowers book.What I love about the Prey series, is the recurring supporting cast, their camaraderie, the politics and his family. I think this is what's missing with Virgil, a supporting cast that is as hilarious and enjoyable as the main ...

    If you don't hear from me for a while, it's because I'm in treatment. You see, I'm seriously addicted to these books. And unforgivably, John Sandford only writes one of them a year, which means I'll be shivering in a corner and slapping at invisible insects for the next eleven months. See you all then.

    Yea!! Virgil's back!Thank you Netgalley & Penguin Group for this ARC.I'm a long time fan of John Sandford's books. Good plots. Fast pacing. Wonderful escapist / rainy day reads. Oh and there's the usual cast of Sandford's stock characters. Smart detective, detective's comedic-relief side-kick, bumbling crook, wise woman and other assorted Minnesotains as needed (not to mention the Minnesota weather). But Sandford does a great job fleshing out his...
