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!
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.
Another great from John Sandford. A great story with interesting people, some tiwsts when you don't expect them and a cool finish.
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.
Sanford has an excellent series in the "F***king Virgil Flowers" lead - you'll understand the quotes when you read the book. Humor added to the main character.
Sanford writes a good novel and only occasionally throws in the anti-Republican propaganda. Detracts from the story when no reference was even needed. But it is a good read or listen.
excellent cadence and rhythm with very well enunciation. It is sad that sometimes he has to read the slam at Republicans when the reference wasn't needed.
The author manages to pile up a story about money, music, sex, underage sex, lesbians, and powerful women and... be boring. The hyper masculine Vietnam veteran that stands up to all these women might well be a sexual fantasy of provincial, conservative Americans. If you are not in this kind of fantasies, and actually like women with power, stay away!
This is a keeper. Virgil is so human. Sandford's Virgil Flower is a great down to earth kind of a guy. Sandford leaves enough out to keep you guessing but not so much that you lose interest. I suspected the ending but it was funny how Sandford pulled it off. Poor Virgil.
