Which makes things all the more complicated for Virgil, because as he begins investigating, he finds a web of connections between the people at the resort, the victim, and some local women, notably a talented country singer.

I've read the two previous Virgil Flowers' books and was so happy to see another installment. While not as good as Heat Lightning, it's still better than the re-warmed-over latest Davenport books. I love Virgil's character and philosophy about life. He's funny and quirky (however the T-shirt shtick is enough already) and he's a joy to read. To me, the mystery is less interesting than Virgil's actions, thoughts, and love life. All the Flowers books are good and fun reads, but to really get to know Virg, read them in order.
Can't wait for the next one!
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Okay, y'gotta read Rough Country to get my title up there. But you gotta read it to have a good time too. Eric Conger brings Virgil Flowers to full bloom once again and he squeezes the stitching out of every character and plot twist that John Sandford imagined in this ass kickin' adventure. If you're looking for fun wrapped inside of a nice puzzle... here it be! I'll be reading another Virgil Flowers adventure with murder, wild folks and hot women. Why? Because this one was cool.
OH... BTW... don't start with this Flowers novel. Too many flashbacks to previous stories in this series. And most of them are spoilers if and when you go back to earlier books. So... do read this, but start earlier on with the series. You'll thank me... or John Sandford.
Another great from John Sandford. A great story with interesting people, some tiwsts when you don't expect them and a cool finish.
Very well done from beginning to end. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Tight plot. Full character development without getting too wordy. Narrator did a professional job with voices and did not overpower the read. Highly recommended!
The author has a odd sense of humor, but is a good writer. Enjoyed it.
Best Virgil Flowers novel so far. Interesting plot and good twists and turns. Very enjoyable.
I never heard of this book but truly enjoyed it. Virgil made the story with his humor. I now plan to go back and read the others.
A very well done audio book of a pretty good mystery. The performance is just spirited enough to give the book life without being distracting. The book itself is good, but the story could have used some tightening in the middle, with a few to many plot threads running. Still, I was never bored, and the characters are all interesting enough to keep me entertained. Recommended.
Although I am partial to the Davenport series, and love the Kidd series, Virgil is quickly becoming a new fav in my house. I listened to the entire book in one sitting as I drove across country, and every time I had it figured put, a new twist would make me question my reasoning. This book kept me guessing till the end! Can't wait to get started on the next one.
I always like these. Virgil is kind of like Lucas but with some of the edges softened, but not alot. I could see where this was going but that's okay. it was fun getting there.
