" Pretty much a formula novel. Usually there are some interesting side events to keep it interesting, and there were some in this story. Unfortunately, Sandford's women characters have begun advising the police and solving his crimes. Flowers, who was always a great character, despite being just as henpecked as Sandford's other cops, is fading away. Having twins with a bossy mother of several children, and losing any energy as a possible hasty romance object with the other female characters in the book. Sorry to say, after many years and several wonderful tales, I'm no longer a number one fan of John Sandford. But...we all gotta go sometimes! "
