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.

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.
This book was very interesting and entertaining. The characters were great and kept my interest throughout. I highly recommend this one.
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.
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.
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.
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
I have to say........ what can I say the book keep me stuck to the head phones. The way the book unfolded was great, great begaining, middle and the ending was everything I have come to exept from John Sandford. Very, very well writen and Narrated. A mind blowing book. Thanks John for all your hard work.
Loved this book. Virgil Flowers has really blossomed into one of my favorite detectives. I have read almost all of John's book and love them all. Can't wait for the next x!!#%ing Flowers story.
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.
