Publisher's Summary

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.

Stemming crime: listen to another Virgil Flowers novel.

    "Another great "F***ing Flowers" book"

    Thank you for another great book! The narration was very good. I am still bothered by a one dimensional feeling about most of the women characters, but since the stories are told from a man's perspective, it seems natural enough. The subject matter was very disturbing, but was so well written, it was bearable.

    Best book I've listened to in a long time. Well constructed, logical and intelligently plotted. Eric Conger's reading is flawless. Highly recommended.

    "This is like the early John Sanford Books"

    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.

    "Shocking and Riveting Bad Blood"

    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.

    "Great read!"

    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.

    "Worth the Credits"

    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

    "Not my favorite"

    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.
