Publisher Description

The first Virgil Flowers novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford. Virgil's been doing the hard stuff for three years, but he’s never seen anything like this. In the small rural town of Bluestem, an old man is bound in his basement, doused with gasoline and set on fire. Three weeks before, a doctor and his wife were murdered. Three homicides in Bluestem in just as many weeks is unheard of. It’s also no coincidence. And it’s far from over.

    " this book starts off pretty good, gets you hooked pretty fast, but then it slows down...and it takes you a while to get through the middle of it to get towards the end where all the excitement is.....though i didn't feel a real connection with the characters, they weren't in depth enough, but all in all its a decent book.

    " Overall not a bad mystery. Probably more 3.5 stars than a full four but I do like Virgil as a character and would definitely read another book in the series. "

    " This is a good murder mystery. The main character, Virgil Flowers, is a new one for Sandford. Every once in a while, I enjoy reading a paperback thriller...this one will keep you guessing. "

    " This was a good mystery piece with ever unfolding twists. I found Sandford's approach and his development of the Virgil Flowers character were well done and will revisit his work. Not a run out and get it book but fairly entertaining "

    " Sandford changed things up a bit on this one. His star of the Prey books, Lucas Daveport, is but a minor character in this one. This stars Virgil Flowers and moves out of the usual Twin Cities area. It is a little slower than his usual thrill-a-minute killer/chiller books. "

    " Virgil Flowers is a state criminal investigator sent to a small town to help solve a series of murders. The character's ability to uncover clues is fun to follow and it proved to be an enjoyable audio book with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. "

    " I've enjoyed reading John Sandford's "Prey" series, but didn't find Virgil Flowers to be much of an interesting character with any depth. The plot was decent and imaginative, but fell short of Sandford's other excellent novels. "

    " I love John Sandford's Lucas Davenport series. This one had its main character Virgil Flowers who we first hear of in the prey series. A great read - lots of suspense and twists and turns. Likeable hero, and kept me guessing. I read this in a day - a real page turner. John Sandford rocks! "
