The brilliant new Virgil Flowers thriller from the number-one New York Times-best-selling author.
One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator - and a young man hits him on the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead, and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident". Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers, who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell.
Remorse? Virgil isn't so sure, and as he investigates he begins to uncover a multigeneration, multifamily conspiracy - a series of crimes of such monstrosity that, though he's seen an awful lot in his life, even he has difficulty in comprehending it...and in figuring out what to do next.
What made the experience of listening to Bad Blood the most enjoyable?
Took three books before I started getting into the Flowers series
Who was your favorite character and why?
Virgil, he is a mix of a cop and a normal guy.
What does Eric Conger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
It seriously took three books before I am getting use to his style of narration.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Religion gone wrong.
Any additional comments?
I am now looking forward to the rest of the Flowers series.
I live Virgil and this was a great one. My favorite one yet. I am excited to see the best one.
As usual the writing was great. But the story was disturbing. Tough subject matter. On to the next book.
Sandford's series of Virgil Flowers and Lucas Davenport mysteries are good writing - just enough levity to smile, but not too much to ruin the mystery. This narrator was excellent, too. Recommend.
Description of characters bring them to life. Lots of twists and turns leaves you guessing till end. Very entertaining read.
Excellent but disturbing story. Really hard to put down. And the reader made the characters come to life. Can't wait to listen to others by this author.
I didn't want this to ever end. The ending quarter or so of the book is particularly wild. And Virgil as always was as entertaining as anything else in the book.
virgil. There is a person who is a fisherman who. dabbles in murder. well technically he is a BCA agent who takes any chance to Musky fish. good book.
Thrilling adrenaline rush. More and more and more. Cliff hanging. Disgusting plot. But hero wins ok great bye bye byr
I have read several Virgil Flowers books and understand why his character is much admired by listeners. The best part of this book was keeping up with the character.
Yet, I can't recommend the listen because I lost almost all interest once John Sanford revealed the identity of the killers and the mystery before I even reached the half-way point of the book. I enjoy true whodunits and want the go through the gradual reveal of clues. I listened for another hour or so, but my mind kept wondering and I wasn't willing to re-listen to parts I missed. I finally threw in the towel. Do you do the same? Under what circumstances do you stop listening to a book that used up a valuable credit?
I will say that Eric Conger did his usual outstanding job with the narration of this series.
