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.

Although I doubt I'll ever tire of Lucas Davenport, Virgil Flowers gives John Sandford some fresh canvass to paint a new and interesting protaganist to go with an always interesting cast of characters and another great murder mystery set in the backwoods of northern Minnesota. I also didn't think Richard Ferone could be improved upon as a narrator, but Eric Conger puts in another great peformance, handling the different characters and genders and accents with ease and accuracy. I only wish there were more audio books of this caliber
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!
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.
Great read(listen) and did not want it to end. That F----en Flowers will keep you smiling and laughing. A real Winner!!!
Busy...busy with daughter, with clients with community service projects
great way to spring up surprise endings always a pleasure to listen to Virgil analyze and come up with a plausible solution and just needing proof...
