Heat Lightning - Virgil Flowers, Bk 2
Author: John Sandford
It's a hot, humid summer night in Minnesota and Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers is in bed, with one of his ex-wives (the second one, if you're keeping count), when the phone rings.

Heat Lightning is a story about a group of Vietnam vets who are being tortured and killed off one by one. Detective Virgil Flowers is the main character and there are splashes of Lucas Davenport throughout the book. Personally, I was really disapointed in the book and had a dificult time getting to the end. I would rate it as BORING.

I have been a fan of John Sandford for quite some time now. I guess he is best known for the "Prey" series. This is one of the Virgil Flowers books. Flowers is a great character and Sandford is really amazing at letting the reader "see" him. I really loved this book until about 30 pages before the end. It was like Sandford just ran out of gas and started to drift about for awhile. It is a shame, because the book was really great till then.

Well being a big Davenport fan I figured I would probably like Flowers. It felt just like a Prey book except very boring. I hard a hard time getting into it and then kept going because I trusted Sandford to keep it interesting, alas, it never got much better and the end was just so, so. I think I will pass on Flowers he just feels like a copycat. The casual love interest in every town is believable if you are male, but as a female it is hard enough to swallow with Davenport, don't try to convince me it could happen exactly the same way with Flowers. Oh well I am gald I did not buy the book!

The series with Virgil Flowers is running right there with my favorites of the "Prey" series with Lucas Davenport.

I wasn't impressed. I usually read for an hour or so each night before going to sleep. . . this book kind of put me to sleep.
