Virgil Flowers is only in his late thirties, but he’s been around the block a few times, and he doesn’t think much can surprise him anymore. He’s wrong.

It’s a hot, humid summer night in Minnesota, and Flowers is in bed with one of his ex-wives (the second one, if you’re keeping count ) when the phone rings. It’s Lucas Davenport. There’s a body in Stillwater, two shots to the head, found near a veterans’ memorial. And the victim has a lemon in his mouth, exactly like the body they found last week.

The more Flowers works the murders, the more convinced he is that someone’s keeping a list, and that the list could have a lot more names on it. If only he could find out what connects them all … and then he does, and he’s almost sorry he did. Because if it’s true, then this whole thing leads down a lot more trails than he thought it did—and every one of them is booby-trapped.

Filled with the audacious plotting, rich characters, and brilliant suspense, this is Sandford writing at the top of his game.

    " This is the second story featuring Virgil Flowers as the lead character and it is much better than the first. The supporting cast we got to know in the "Prey" books are more prominent in this story and the ties between Virgil and Lucas are more clear. "

    " Not a bad little book to listen to on a long car drive. "

    " A typical Sandford book...fast paced and never a dull moment. I loved it! Virgil Flowers is terrific! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kemper | 2/9/2014

    " Pretty typical Sandford with the relatively new Virgil Flowers character adding some twists and freshness to the mix. Sandford is one of the better crime/thriller writers of these types of books, and they're always a fun read. But he isn't breaking any new ground here. "
