Review

Praise for Storm Front
 
“One of the best in that series so far . . . [it is] exciting, complex and funny . . . 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
 
“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

By Robert P. Brown TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 18 2015
Format: Paperback
A terminally ill professor/preacher, while on an archeological dig in Israel, makes off with a small, stone artifact covered with hieroglyphs, which, when translated, could seriously alter the World`s perception of the Old Testament. He carts this off to his home in Minnesota in the hopes of selling it for a small fortune. This in turn attracts a motely bunch of characters eager to get their hands on it.

There`s a representative from the Israel Antiquities Authority who turns out to be a Mossad agent, the real representative (Yael 1 and Yael 2), a couple of murderous Turks, a young Arab with Hezbollah connections, a TV personality, a Texas millionaire, and, among others, a local single mother of five who deals in fake barn wood. Lucas Davenport of the "Prey" novels gets involved, and then there`s Virgil Flowers, who is in the middle of what he refers to as a compound word beginning with "cluster".

This is not a conventional crime/ thriller novel. Rather, it is a caper, along the lines of Donald Westlake, and a clever satire with amusing scenes and great dialogue, targeting religious relics and writers like Dan Brown. This is a point most of the 1 and 2 star reviewers miss.

An entertaining, tongue-in-cheek ride with chuckles along the way. Those with a sense of humor will enjoy it.

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.

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 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 have read every Sanford offering. In this book, Virgil Flowers appears to be buddies with everyone who are on the wrong side of the law. I found many of the situations to be not-believable. Also, it seemed to me that potential deadly-force situations were treated very lightly; with no sense of panic. No more Virgil Flowers books for me.

It just keeps getting better and better, Flowers is excellent as a character, the action is believable and just enough to keep you turning the pages I found the plot is a turnaround not the usual killers,but current smugglers and artifacts is the theme something different. I enjoyed this offering and felt my money was well spent.

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.
