Product Description

Review

Praise for Storm Front
 
“One of the best in that series so far . . . [it is] exciting, complex and funny . . . The beauty of Sanford's writing is that the narrative of the book is told in perfect harmony with Flowers' personality. The descriptions of the plot and the locale of the story have the same laconic quality as Virgil's tone and speaking habits. You seem to be in Virgil's mind and thoughts as the narrative unfolds . . . STORM FRONT is an enjoyable and relaxing read. Sandford knows his characters, his locale and his plot. There are no missteps. It is entertaining reading all the way.”—Huffington Post
 
“With another gritty storyline and appealing characters, Sandford has penned another winner, one sure to shoot to the top of the best-seller lists.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
 
“Clever, quirky . . . unusually good-natured intrigue distinguishes this outing.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
Praise for 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
 
“Very strong. Sandford is one of America’s ace mystery authors.” – Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“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
 
“The best thing about Sandford’s writing is that it is still fresh. He writes with enthusiasm and never coasts on his merits or uses any tricks of the trade. Mad River is just as refreshing as the first novel he ever wrote.” – Huffington Post
 
“Sandford can be depended upon to create thrillers infused with page-turner plots, knife’s-edge prose, and well-drawn portraits. What sets this series apart, though, is Flowers himself, a man of action but also one of contemplation. In Mad River, as in his entire body of work, Sandford sets out not only to thrill and entertain, but also to inspire thought.” – Richmond Times-Dispatch

I love John Sandford's "Prey" novels. I just started reading the Virgil Flowers series - I've read three so far. This was the weakest. The book is okay - that's the best I can say about it. I found the plot repeating itself, over and over again. I don't want to give too much of the story away (but trust me, it doesn't really matter)- Virgil spends the entire book trying to find an artifact - he finds it, he loses it, he finds it, he loses it - you get the picture. My favourite parts were the Ma Nobles character and Virgil's phone conversations with Lucas Davenport.

I waited too long for this book and was very disappointed in the entire book. Not at all up to Sandford's capability and was a tough slow read. Loaned it to and avid Flowers follower and she feels the same way.

Having read every Sandford novel and having spent countless months WAITING in inter book purgatory working out my sins from taking such enjoyment from Sandford's wry sense of humour combining metro male awareness with both a testosterone based propensity for violence and a helplessness in the presence of slightly earthy femininity I now come on this: at the half way point a sense of dismay because it is sinking down to a situational THING. TOO MUCH SITUATIONAL NONSENSE. I don't know what is coming. I don't have a glimmer. And unfortunately I am at the point I increasingly don't really care. Virgil is a young version of his mentor with a sufficiently complex character that he can be used for many more stories but this story line is overly complex,unbelievable and BORING. A new Davenport was needed and the early stories delivered nicely but this? Too contrived and leaving no real sense of anticipation. Do I care? Duh,

I seem to be the only reviewer who loved this book as a total send-up of a couple of genres:Dan Brown (and his many clones), spy novels, especially the current fascination with the Middle East. I found it very funny, but then, I have always thought Sandford intends that f&@++&n Flowers to appear as the comic anti-hero who is secretly heroic.

We really enjoy Sanford's book. We listen to the tapes in the evening as we go to bed. They are entertaining and well done.

Love the Virgil Flowers and Davenport series. I have read almost all of them and pre-orders are always on my wish list.

There really aren't any other words for this. Virgil Flowers. He is my book crush. Storm Front was terrific just like all of John Sandford's other books.
