Publisher's Summary

The thrilling new novel in the number one New York Times - bestselling series.

In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You're about to get a visitor. It's an Israeli cop, and she's tailing a man who's smuggled out an extraordinary relic - a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon.

Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses?

He looks at the cop. She's not laughing. As it turns out, there are very bad men chasing the relic, and they don't care who's in the way or what they have to do to get it. Maybe Virgil should start praying.

    Great job on all fronts. Story keeps you guessing, the characters are so much fun, and the narration was excellent as always. Love that "Bleeping Flowers"

    "Another Hit"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely YES!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As usual, I was engrossed from the start and had a hard time not listening.


    Have you listened to any of Eric Conger’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all the Sandford books. Eric Conger is a fabulous narrator and he makes the Virgil Flowers books so much richer. He hits the humor dead on. The characters are awesome much because Conger's presentation. I've been tempted to look for other books just to listen to more Eric Conger.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As usual with Virgil Flowers books, there were many moments where I truly did LOL. With a couple of them, I replayed them because they were so funny!!


    Any additional comments?

    The Sandford/Conger combo is outstanding. It just doesn't get any better than these.

    "Loved it!"

    I enjoyed this book very much. It is funny and engaging and shows a humanity in Virgil we have not seen before. It also was not so bloody or so tragic as to make me squirm. I thought it delightful!

    "Not up to par"

    I love Sanford AND Virgil, but this book simply seemed to far-fetched a plot premise and I felt much less in touch with the characters involved. I think Virgil dealing with crimes and characters that are somewhat indigenous to the Midwest make for a much better book.

    Variety...the spice of life! I read a variety of genres. From historical fiction, to murder mystery, to vampires and on to teen fiction.

    "That f@#$ing Flowers hard at work again!"

    I enjoyed this book in the Virgil Flowers series as much as the others. Most of the others involved Virgil tracking down murderers, but his one offered a bit of a refreshing break from that. Virgil has to track down a stolen relic from another country....stolen by a priest!!! The story left me guessing up to the end with a surprise ending. This was an enjoyable read and the reader does a nice job as usual with the characters' voices. I recommend the story. I love the fact that it was a Minnesota-based storyline. Anyone that lives in Minnesota will appreciate the part about the Mosquitoes and Poison Ivy. I had a good laugh!

    "another Virgil Flowers"

    I have listened to all of John Sandford books and really love his Flowers series.
    Flowers is a different kind of cop and gets the "bad guys" in his own way.

    this was a good installment - He has his unique way of doing things --

    worth a credit --

    "Sanford, Enough said."

    At this point with Sanford books it doesn't really matter what he writes about because I know and love the characters so much. Most books are a very easy fun read with some of them more time fillers then literary works of art. That being said I really liked where they took this book. A little international intrigue thrown in with the usual Effin Flowers and Davenport banter. Highly recommended.

    I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.

    "Another Virgil Flower's escapades"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Storm Front to be better than the print version?

    The print edition would allow you to re-orient to the character with the name.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Always Virgil Flowers


    What about Eric Conger’s performance did you like?

    Always good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Good fast pace that kept you engaged


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to most of John Sandford’s books and this is right up with the best. Eric Conger continues as an enjoyable narrator. The only negative is that there are many Middle Eastern character names and it is difficult to orient the listener which character they goes with the name.
