Product Description

Review

“Flowers is a fun character, smart and honest with a healthy supply of cynicism and snark…a thoroughly engaging, suspenseful, satisfying story.”—The Washington Examiner
 
“John Sandford is the master of his craft.”—Dayton Daily News
 
“Sandford’s exciting fourth thriller to feature Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agent Virgil Flowers. [His] biggest…case to date.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“A Pandora’s box of multiple murders, criminal behavior…and revelations of deviancy that go back generations. As usual, Sandford delivers a great mystery with action, suspense, humor, and, yes, sex. Virgil always gets his man, but he also gets the girl. Good reading.”—Booklist

Product Description

The fourth thrilling novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford's Virgil Flowers series.

Two bodies in two days. One is murder. The other is suicide. Virgil Flowers never imagined that discovering the connection would lead him into the perverse history of the Minnesota farm community, and almost unimaginable darkness.


From the Paperback edition.

As usual, I received this book from a GoodReads giveaway. It's also worth noting that this novel belongs to a genre that is normally not among those I pick up for frequent perusal. Because of this I'm reviewing a bit outside my ken.

In a nutshell, Sandford's novel is about as pulpy as it gets: gritty, action packed and completely unapologetic about it. Despite the fact that this is not a genre I tend to pick up, and I'm not likely even now to start, I did find myself dragged along quite against my will once having started. Sandford's style is marvelous and it's obvious that he's been doing writing in this vein for quite some time. Easily the best I've read in the crime-action genre.

My only real complaint is that he does tend to go over the top. His dramatic conclusion reads more like a scene from a war movie than a police action. If this sort of thing regularly occurs then I'm rather surprised there are any cops left to keep the peace.

That aside, Sandford's writing is solid and his topic engaging. For those who enjoy work in the CSI realm this is a grand example of the genre.

Ever since John Sandford introduced Virgil Flowers I have been entranced with this character's paradox of a personality. Funny, serious, intelligent, poor judgment, good looking, bad clothes, well read, rock junkie etc.

I was looking forward to this new story and was very disapointed. The thin plot made no sense to me. I read every word and line and about halfway, I started talking to the book's pages. Asking questions, pondering, maybe this will be resolved at the end. It never was.

Examples:
1. Why would a highly secretive and controlled group of abusive men, leave a naked body of a young female in a cemetery? which is how this whole chain of events began. It's hinted that other women were killed and disapeared (buried behind the house in the woodlot) over several decades. Nobody asked the question and I got no answer....
2. If every one was doing every one for this long, there must have been some unwanted pregnancies with the younger girls, did they always use condoms? how is that possible when 8 men are going at one girl in a pool? Nobody asked, got no answer...
3. In the same vein, how did the women know whose child they were having? you get the drift.
4. Virgil as charming and sexy as he sounds, got a little boring by the end. Gets another bed partner by batting his eyelashes, she wears him out. He wants more. Would have been such fun if the tables were turned and some incredible female gave HIM the run around for a change.
5. Virgil says he wants to find love and not be in-lust. Well does he? I find immature male character behavior a trial after a while. Davenport got his act together eventually. Much more believable.

I don't know what happens to bestselling writers, somehow the quality and editing goes down, as their bank account balance and their publishers go up.

Funny... I liked all the Lucas davenport books and they were a great read. But with all of the Virgil flowers books (just finished number 4 in the series) I find there are so many characters I lose track of who's who!

I will continue to read more of the flowers series because I like the story .
