Praise for John Sandford's MAD RIVER:
“The best entry in a stellar series” – Booklist (starred review)
“A high-octane thrill ride. Virgil pulls out all the stops.” – Publishers Weekly
“Wonderfully entertaining” – St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“The greatest strength of Mad River lies in Flowers himself. It’s hard to think of a more balanced and genial investigative hero, yet he’s still able to keep cops and bad guys alike in line. The killers’ motivations and dynamic remain riveting until the final pages.” – Shelf Awareness
“There are few events more welcome in the literary world than the appearance of another John Sandford book. Mad River is shot through with dark humor from all sides [and] the violence that is the driving force of the book ratchets up the suspense to an almost excruciating degree.” – Bookreporter.com

In this, the sixth installment, Flowers is involved in tracking down a young couple who are on a killing spree in rural Minnesota. (Remember the movie Badlands?) The first two thirds of the book follows the killers attempts to get away and the police procedures to catch them. The plot then takes an interesting turn, leading to an unusual conclusion.
Sandford is a very good writer, there is some humor and snappy dialogue; overall entertaining and a good way to while away a summer weekend.
I own most of his books and have enjoyed every one.
Difficult to put down. The only problem is I read his books in two days, then wish there was more.

John Sandford is a very talented writer with many serial novels. His Virgil Flowers books are a very entertaining read. Wish there were more Virgil Flowers novels available.Published 10 months ago by Glen
I suppose this should not be surprising after a couple of decades of publishing fiction. This book could use some editing and proofreading. Read morePublished 23 months ago by lifelong reader
