The brilliant new Virgil Flowers thriller from the number-one New York Times-best-selling author.
One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator - and a young man hits him on the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead, and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident". Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers, who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell.
Remorse? Virgil isn't so sure, and as he investigates he begins to uncover a multigeneration, multifamily conspiracy - a series of crimes of such monstrosity that, though he's seen an awful lot in his life, even he has difficulty in comprehending it...and in figuring out what to do next.

This is easily the best Virgil Flowers novel to date. Great characters, lots of good detective work and loads of pulse pounding action. I just finished it on a 300 mile straight through drive - I couldn't halt the non-stop action for a break.
"That f___ing Flowers" lives up to his reputation in spades - as a cop, as a lover, and as a quality human being with real insights into the human character. Ranks right up there with the best of police procedurals.
Don't miss this one - it has me waiting with great expectation for the next Virgil Flowers thriller. As a former police chaplain who has spent years working with law enforcement, I can tell you that this is the real deal!
I am not new to the series or the Davenport series but this book was a standout. If you like stand alone books get it. If you like series get it.
Sanford has a writing style that gives the POV of the hunter and hunted. While doing that you lose some of the Who done it factor but his story telling is strong enough you don't miss it. the same style holds in this book but the tension created with events you couldn't see coming made my heart literally race. I was so invested I felt panic and fear for the characters. I enjoyed the moment of justice so much. It's layered and complex. It's shocking and gritty at times. I can not recommend it enough.
Fast. Interesting. Virgil.
It was interesting...with periods of on the edge of my seat and periods of okay, let's get moving.
Too graphic my granddaughter was in the car sections of it were soft porn
If I had known sexual topics were going to be covered in such detail I would never have chosen this book. I am no prude but this book is inappropriate for the 12-15 year old audiance
It would depend on the book
I will be a little more selective of the author
Took three books before I started getting into the Flowers series
Virgil, he is a mix of a cop and a normal guy.
It seriously took three books before I am getting use to his style of narration.
Religion gone wrong.
I am now looking forward to the rest of the Flowers series.
