    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    Bill says: "Good. Not Great. But Virgil is Hard to Skip."
    "It's always the journey with Sanford."

    Story

    If you like entertainment that lets you think then this book is for you. With Sanford the Flower books are almost always the same - no mystery as to whodunit. But that misses the point. These are wonderful stories of mid-west Americans that for this left coaster hit all the romantic notions of what are the real shades of grey in the world of crime. The same mass culture that produces intelligent detectives has the opposite effect on alienated youth. Nobody does it better or more entertainingly than John Sanford.

    Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent.

    P. Giorgio says: "Depth & Breadth"
    "Don't store your data online!"
    Overall

    MacAvoy is annoying and unrealistic as a fighter, but his reporter's drive keeps the plot moving. The plight of newspaper people is described well, but journalism is far from dead. The shocker is the online data storage role. I'm thinking twice about using such a service.
    The reader was good, and because he was a younger voice, perhaps the fight scenes with the 'old' reporter seemed more realistic.

    Story

    Keller's a hit man. For years now, he's had places to go and people to kill. But enough is enough. He's got money in the bank and just one last job standing between him and retirement. So he carries it out with his usual professionalism, and he heads home, but guess what?

    Jose says: "End of game?"
    "Hit and Run by Lawrence Block"
    Overall

    Keller's moral equivalency at it's best! Only this time Keller gets drawn into political intrigue and love - there's even room for another sequel, though I'm not sure that's Block's intent. Also, the reader isn't so bad, though I missed the author's voice.
