Publisher's Summary

On a late autumn Sunday in Southern Minnesota, a farmer is bludgeoned around the head by a teenager wielding a bat. Following the teenager’s apparent suicide, Sheriff Lee Coakley is worried that she is up against a far more complicated case than she first thought, and calls in investigator Virgil Flowers. It doesn't take long for Flowers to uncover a series of crimes so monstrous that the small town can never be the same again.

bad blood - disappointing

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. It was too complicated. Mostly it was dialogue rather than action. Totally addicted to the prey series by Sandford. This felt like a different author. Some books don't translate well to audio.

Has Bad Blood turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I still look for crime and violence!

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes, although my wife thought he sounded drunk! I thought he was good and matched the story

Do you think Bad Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, so that sandford can redeem himself!

Any additional comments?

Flowers is a believable character, but there wasn't the tension and suspense I've got used to in the prey series with Lucas Davenport.

Brilliant Endeavours

Great read. Mystery and dealing with a devastating community issue and Virgil is the strong. Man with humour
