Virgil Flowers is like reading the old John Sanford Prey Books. The new Lucas Davenport novels have taken the fun out of the reading for me. I will buy all the Virgil Flowers books I can get my hands on. This is a believable plot due to stories that have appeared in the news over the past 4 to 5 years.
I was enthralled with the subject matter and couldn't stop listening until the main characters got their "come up ins!". Very original plot. Can't wait for his next book to come out.
I really like Conger for the Flowers character. Sanford has really set the standard with the Prey and Flowers mysteries. The only down side is I probably will avoid Minnesota in the future. Too many creeps.
This is the best Sandford book I have read in a long time. I really hope this is a vision of things to come. The book does, however, contain graphic deviant sexuality; so be warned
I have to say........ what can I say the book keep me stuck to the head phones. The way the book unfolded was great, great begaining, middle and the ending was everything I have come to exept from John Sandford. Very, very well writen and Narrated. A mind blowing book. Thanks John for all your hard work.
Loved this book. Virgil Flowers has really blossomed into one of my favorite detectives. I have read almost all of John's book and love them all. Can't wait for the next x!!#%ing Flowers story.
I have been reading John Sandford going back to when he wrote under a different name for the Virgil Flowers stories. The plot line of this book is not the kind of materials I want to listen to. It's a bit more edgy than usual for Sandford. I'm definitely not a prude but listening this storyline did not leave me wanting more.
Retired elementary school teacher, and now build guitars and furniture. Listen to about 40 books a year with a heave interest on detective story.
Content disturbed me with a church and all crimes against children. If I would known the content would have purchased the book.
Eric Conger puts a very nice touch to a book that might not be Mr Sandford's best.
Crudely salacious....yes, believable....not so much.
Flowers is the best of the Sanford characters. I love the simple dialog between the players. This book has very little action but I could not stop listening. I will admit there is some graphic sex (not the romantic kind), but it is tolerable because of the way Sanford writes. Again that F'n Flowers is such an entertaining character. The narrator nails it also.
