Good story as usual. Sandford is one of my two favorite authors and having read every one of his Flower's and Davenport books I look forward to each new one as it comes out. John

I am so sorry I actually bought this book--so far I have liked the Virgil Flowers series but this one is just boring!!!!!! I tried and tried to keep reading but it just moves so slow and is just boring---maybe a bomb goes off and another one goes off but it is just mostly talk talk talk and as I skipped through it I couldn't find anything exciting or thrilling about it.

A thoroughly absorbing and convoluted read with a colorful collection of characters and mercenary villains. Virgil's boss is Lucas Davenport from Sanford's other series. Seems Flowers is the fellow that the State sends out to the Minnesota hinterlands to unravel mysteries and figure out the murderer. And he does with flair and persistence. Virgil is a fun fellow, enjoys fishing, eyes the ladies, and wears collectible R&R T shirts with his sport coat, but when it comes to detecting, he is all business, and eventually he figures out 'who dunnit' in this case, who the bomber is trying to stop the construction of a Big Box store in a small town.

In my opinion.....boring ...boring....boring! Hard to find anything to make me want to keep reading this one! Very disappointed!!!

Never read a John Sandford book that I didn't enjoy. I just like Davenport characters a little more than Flowers. But, he is growing on me...ha ha.

Another good book by Sandford about "that f****** Flowers". I rated this book a bit lower than previous ones because I felt that Flowers shared his thinking and suspicions with too many people, including suspects, which just didn't feel right. It was a good storyline, just a bit scattered for me.

Another fantastic read, I just love John Sandford. I thought that maybe giving that "f---ing Flowers" his own series wouldn't work but now 5 books later I say Bravo! You won't be sorry you read this one either!

Boy, do I disagree with the review that thought this book was boring. I found it engrossing. It's well-written with Sanford's usual wit and entertaining plot. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Sanford. One this I do not recommend is that you try to read one of these books without reading previous ones in the series as there would be so many references that wouldn't be explained. But having said that, the book is wonderful.

Great book! Virgil comes through again. This is the 5th book in the series, and I love them all. Sanford has done a good job of giving Virgil a life of his own, but still keeping him involved in the Minnesota BCI. We still get to hear from Lucas, but this is Virgil's show. Hopefully there will be many more to come.

Start with number one and work your way through the series. This one is as good as the others. I love them as well as the "Prey" series with Lucas Davenport

My favorite man, Virgil, does it again. This was a
"who done it" right to the last page.
