Publisher's Summary

The murder of a successful advertising executive leads Detective Virgil Flowers to the unlikely scene of the crime: a peaceful and bucolic wooded resort with as many suspects as it has secrets....

While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of Northern Minnesota, Virgil Flowers receives a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a brutal murder at a nearby resort for women only. As Virgil begins investigating, he finds a web of connections between the people at the resort, the victim, and some local women, notably a talented and popular country singer. The more Virgil digs, the more he discovers the arrows of suspicion point in many directions, encompassing a multitude of motivations: jealousy, blackmail, greed, anger, and fear.

Then Virgil discovers something that sends his investigation reeling. This is not the first murder connected to the Eagle Nest Lodge. Nor will it be the last....

Please note: This is the abridged edition. An unabridged version is also available.

Performance could be better

Book was very good. I was bothered by the attempt to dramatize with music the interval between some chapters. Minor annoyance but I cannot understand why they thought they needed more drama than was already in a good nove.

my least like Sanford book

I really enjoy all of Sanford's Davenport and Flowers books. Normally the stories are interesting and their lots of plot twists and turns. I found this to be slow and not as intriguing. This was so dull that I had forgotten that I must have listened to it in the past but had the unabridged version in my library. When the released the new unabridged I thought it was a new book and I bought it.
