Publisher Description

A #1 New York Times Bestseller

Virgil Flowers investigates a miracle--and a murder--in the wickedly entertaining new thriller from the master of "pure reading pleasure" (Booklist).


Wheatfield, Minnesota: a metropolis of six hundred souls and change, for which the word "moribund" might have been invented. Nothing ever happened there and nothing ever would--until the mayor of sorts (campaign slogan: "I'll Do What I Can") and his precocious teenage buddy come up with a scheme to put Wheatfield on the map. Should something dramatic occur--say, that the apparition of the Virgin Mary miraculously appeared at the local Catholic Church--the whole town would be turned into a shrine, attracting thousands of pilgrims. And all those pilgrims needed food, shelter, all kinds of crazy things. The town would get rich! What could go wrong?

Then the shootings begin. And as they--and Virgil Flowers--are about to discover, that's only the beginning of their troubles. . . .

Quotes

  • John Sandford’s madly entertaining Virgil Flower mysteries are more fun than a greased-pig-wrestling contest. The plots outlandish; the characters peculiar; and the best bits of dialogue are largely unprintable.

    - Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
  • Another winner.

    - Washington Post 
  • Holy smoke, Holy Ghost is a hot one! . . . The dialogue is sometimes biting and always witty, and the entire book is at once wicked and sublime.

    - Booklist (starred review)
  • Wickedly enjoyable . . . Sandford’s trademark sly humor shines throughout.

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review)   Praise for Deep Freeze  
  • Along the way to the satisfying ending, Virgil displays the rough humor and rough justice that make him such an appealing character.

    - Publishers Weekly
  • The ride, as always in a Sandford novel, surprises and delights....Add a gripping storyline, a generous helping of exquisitely conceived characters and laugh-out-loud humor that produce explosive guffaws, not muted chuckles, and you’re in for the usual late-night, don’t-even-think-of-stopping treat when Flowers hits town.

    " This is a funny Virgil Flowers story, with the typical Sandford profane language and gory scenes. As always, it is best to read/listen to the books in order, to follow character development. "
