Virgil is my favorite John Sanford character and Eric Conger brings him to life. I listen as much for Eric's performance as I do the storyline which was okay. All in all, I enjoyed the book very much.
Absolutely. I've read a number of John Sandford's book and usually enjoy them. The quirkiness and odd humorous comments and behavior of his protagonists keep the stories alive.
Probably not. It wasn't up to Mr. Sandford's standards in my opinion. Could be I just wasn't in the mood for this particular theme.
Don't think I had a favorite. I really like the Virgil Flowers character but...
No. The ending pretty much tied up all the strings.
Good enough to, but I doubt it because I have too many books to go through as it is.
This story is about some kids lost in the jungle of trying to make it in the real world who ends up making deadly choices. Their plight is eventually compared to Bonnie and Clyde and Natural Born Killers. One thing I did like about Sanfords take was how without apologizing for their actions did acknowledge how kids like this probably had little chance for sucess in very much that was available to them in the first place. Which really is at the bottom of a lot of the bad and deadly decisions kids make today.
Another aspect of the book I found interesting was the interaction between the local law enforcement and the BCA. How it seemed to work only to a point, and then the local basically screwed things up in a big way, but was covered because apparently they can deal with a different set of rules. I would have thought the BCA had priority, but I guess not. A very frustrating part of the story, but the continuation from that point was a pretty good conclusion.
All in all this was a damn good listen while going down the road. All of Sanford's books are good road books. The reader of this book did a very good job too and that always makes a difference.
Another blood-soaked Sandford, but I love it. Virgil Flowers is really taking on his own persona and soon he'll surpass Lucas Davenport for likability. Not much new, but I liked it.
My favorite so far in the Virgil Flowers series. Fast paced, great for listening on the elliptical. Makes time fly by.
Virgil works the problem and shows a different side to his personnality. Tracking the bad guys and trying to keep the shoot frst and sort out the bodies from over achieving. Virgil and Davenport are showing their teeth and guts!!
Listening while I run.
Virgil Flowers is one of my favorite characters. He is a tough smart cop that you can't help but like! I also like the small-town flavor of this series. Sandford is a master of keeping the interest. Conger is great too.
Not what I would call a complete novel. John Sandford kind of left out the plot on this one.
The story seemed like a jumble of mindless events, none really making very much sense. It does appear that the author just cranked this one out of the book factory without really giving it much thought. Reminds me of the stuff Patterson is putting out lately.
If you like Sandford, give it a listen, but it's probably the worst Flowers of the series.
It was very good and well paced.
The chase, the realness of it all.
I liked how he made it sound kind of Drag Net like. Very procedural and precise
A little of both. I'm pleased with the ending.
Made you think how hard it would really be to catch a couple of nut jobs like this.
