Dark of the Moon | [John Sandford]

Dark of the Moon

Virgil Flowers kicked around for a while before joining the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. First it was the army and the military police, then the police in St. Paul, and finally Lucas Davenport brought him into the BCA, promising him, "We'll only give you the hard stuff." He's been doing the hard stuff for three years now, but never anything like this.

Publisher's Summary

Virgil Flowers kicked around for a while before joining the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. First it was the army and the military police, then the police in St. Paul, and finally Lucas Davenport brought him into the BCA, promising him, "We'll only give you the hard stuff."

He's been doing the hard stuff for three years now, but never anything like this.

In the small town of Bluestem, a house way up on a ridge explodes into flames, its owner, a man named Judd, trapped inside. There are a lot of reasons to hate him, Flowers discovers. In fact, he concludes, you'd probably have to dig around to find a person who doesn't despise Judd.

And that isn't even why Flowers came to Bluestem. Three weeks before, there'd been another murder, two, in fact, a doctor and his wife, the doctor found propped up in his backyard, both eyes shot out. Flowers knows two things: this wasn't a coincidence, and it had to be personal.

But just how personal is something even he doesn't realize, and may not find out until too late. Because the next victim may be himself.

What the Critics Say

"Sandford keeps the reader guessing and the pages turning while Flowers displays the kind of cool and folksy charm that might force Davenport to share the spotlight more often." (Publishers Weekly)

    "A nice change"

    No Lucas Davenport this time, but the same great writing and character development. A peripheral character in the Prey series, Virgil Flowers is developed as a savey and persistent detective in this latest contribution from Sandford.

    By having Virgil as the protagonist, Sandford gets to add some sexual tension. He is a bachelor so he gets to do more than flirt. But can Virgil trust his instincts?

    "He's done better"

    A pretty good book, but very verbose and repetitive. Hope Sanford is not getting lazy and just putting in minimal effort.

    "Narration was aweful"

    I am having the toughest time getting into this book, despite really enjoying the story. The narrator doesn't even try to make any of the characters sound different, female voices, big guys, little guys all sound exactly the same. Conger is just reading the book to you; I have never had this much trouble figuring out who was talking.

    "Very enjoyable listen from the beginning to end"

    Another great book with Virgil Flowers as the "man".
    This book grabbed me right at the start and kept me interested to the end, with one event after another. As in his other books about Virgil Flowers, John Sandford uses his humor through out the book and sometimes had me laughing out loud at things that Virgil would say. Eric Conger did a great job narrating as well, he had just the right tone in his voice to fit the situation or person.
