I actually didn't find the story particularly interesting. It was the narration.
Yes, I laughed out loud. I like the effin Flowers humor and Eric Conger makes it seem like you are listening to a real conversation or a thought in Virgil's head.
The reason I listen to the Virgil Flowers books is for the throw-away lines and the humor. Eric Conger is Virgil Flowers to me. I can't read these books; I have to listen to Eric Conger read them.
Hard to pinpoint.
Virgil's sense of humor is always something to look forward to.
Ma is awesome.
I am an attorney and author in Jefferson City, MO.
When the Virgil Flowers line of books started he was kind of an unwelcome diversion from the Davenport series. A spinoff that I was not entirely sure I was going to like. The series started slowly, but I've listened to every one of them, and I am liking them more and more. Eric Conger delivers a good reading performance, and I've come to the point that I like Flowers and know pretty much what he's going to do. He's his own man, and a very different man than Davenport. You can almost predict what Davenport will do; not so with Flowers whom Sandford keeps us guessing about most of the time. This is a good listen and worth you time and money.
The story was good, but many of the characters had conflicting loyalties and at times it was hard to keep them straight. Eric Conger is great, as usual, but I wish both he and Richard Ferrone, who reads Lucas Davenport, would ask someone from the mid-west how to pronounce crappies, bratwurst & lilacs.
Even though the premise is time tested Sandford brings the topic to life through that f-ing Flowers!
Setting is perfect contrast .... Middle East v. Minnesota
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
I do think that after so many books Virgil is loosing a little steam. Ma helped generate fresh interest and enjoyment for me. If it were not for Ma, I would not have enjoyed it as much. I hope she is a fixture in future adventures.
I will buy the next installment in this series.
Way above average, in the top 5.
Lots of fun characters, humor and plot twists.
Again above average.
Yes, but of course I don't have such a schedule. I will have it finished in about 3 days.
I was a bit worried that this would just be another Virgil Flowers novel. It may be the best one!
Another great mystery
Virgil Flowers and his relationship with the redneck barn-wood selling female.
I can listen while I do long runs and not get bored.
I always chuckle at certain scenes in the book.
Flowers is fun.
I only get to listen to audio Truck driver and I enjoyed Mr Sanford's work
Who wouldn't think Virgil is the best also the rest where very interesting
One of the best and I have enjoyed all of his works
Yes, if time would allow good story great read and likeable charactors
Look forward to the next one Soon I hope
