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 love the Prey books and now I look forward to the Virgil Flowers novels. Sandford mixes in just enough personal stuff without overdoing it. His descriptive talents bring the scenes alive and, again, without overdoing it. This was hard to put down and Eric Conger's narration is among the best.
I love this series by John Sandford. Virgil is just the right kind of smart gilded with vunerable. I like my heros with lots of intuitiveness and just a little "misguidedness". Virgil has just the right blend. Some people may not like the background - lesbianism, but Virgil's persuit of the answers/killer is the really interesting part of this for me.
Unpredictable. Intense. Exciting.
The very last part.
Yes. They are all great.
Laughed at some parts.
John Sandford's writing and Eric Conger's reading. Eric brings the writing alive. He is more of an actor than an attractive voice just reading the words.I
Virgil Flower has a way with women. I loved the scene where he is starting to embed himself into the investigation by getting to know the locals. This time he gets it wrong and is trying to seduce a lesbian.
This is by far the best reading of ANY artist. Conger's reading of all the Virgil Flower's books is spot on.
Listen to all the Flower's books and Eric Conger---What a treasue!
No but I certainly will listen to Eric again. Great narrator
Yes it really draws you in
Great series, great author and narrator!
I like to read, but I drive 3 hours each day and this is the best way for tme to feed the need to read. :-)
The main character is Virgil Flowers, he's just like me!
Bug bits & Men kill
I liked the story and the book...
I'm hooked. A friend who never steers me wrong on books and movies recommended John Sanford, so I started with the Virgil Flowers series. This is the third one I've purchased. With each one, as soon as it ends I start it over and listen again immediately. I'm going to start #4 in a few minutes, but wanted to take time to recommend this series. It's good fun, well written, and well read. Enjoy!
a very good story. the constant use of virgil said or one of the other charicters ssaid when only two people are in the conversation and you don't need that . most of the time its obvious
the finding of the body in the lake
already stated , but the use of the phrase , he said she said to much, i wanted to erase the book a couple times.
Intricate, interesting, entertaining
I really enjoy the way John Sandford uses his characters. Whatever action they take always seems exactly right, they never behave out of character.
I can't imagine hearing anyone else read a Virgil Flowers book. His performance is excellent and his voices seem exactly right, even for characters I've read about in other books by Sandford.
This, and other John Sanford crime mysteries, are an easy listen. Not the most intriguing I've read, but very enjoyable.
The minor characters are interesting, but Virgil is layed back, cool, and I like the way he solves his problems.
It always makes me chuckle that Virgil has to grab something to eat after a particularly gruesome and stressful crime scene.
