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)

    Story
    "Difficult to Listen"
    Would you try another book from John Sandford and/or Eric Conger?

    Probably not.


    Would you recommend Dark of the Moon to your friends? Why or why not?

    I found it difficult to listen to this story. The reader read it verbatim. As in "he said: "take me there", and then 'she said': "it's this way".'he said': "up this road', then 'he said': "which way". All throughout the book. No change in the voices to indicate which person was talking---just the he said, she said type dialogue.


    What didn’t you like about Eric Conger’s performance?

    I didn't like it!


    Did Dark of the Moon inspire you to do anything?

    No.

    "The Man in the Moon"

    I've always been amazed by Sanford's story telling and ability weaving multiple sub-plots within and around the major theme. Suspenseful, fast paced, and sprinkled with humor and tragic events this is amazing. I hope the other books in this series are equally entertaining.
