Virgil's always been known for having a somewhat active er social life but he's probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort where a woman has been shot while kayaking The resort is for women only a place to relax get fit recover. The endorsement by THE Stephen King on the cover page of the novel had attracted my attention By the way it is a murder mystery not a horror storyThis was my first Virgil Flower novel I had read a few Lucas Davenport novels earlier by the same author and liked the fact that Davenport made a brief appearance in this bookAnyway this is not the first book in the Virgil Flower series but you can read it as a standaloneThe story opens with the murder of Erica McDill while she was relaxing in a peaceful and bucolic wooded women only resort McDill was the CEO of an advertising agency and had planned to get rid of uite a few unwanted people Understandably uite a few people hated her and a sexual angle would also emergeNow our protagonist Virgil Flowers agent of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension who by the way looks like a surfer than a cop is tasked with carrying out the investigation I liked the character of Virgil unusual name he is a bit different from the protagonists of the police procedural I have come across so far He does not look or dress like a cop forgets where he kept his gun thinks about God before going to bed not depressed about anything But don t let his appearance fool you he is a shrewd customerVirgil s investigation will make him encounter a variety of characters self centered manipulative pure weird Some pretty unsavory secrets would be revealed and we would have uite a few suspects with strong motives McDill s murder won t be the only murder in this story be prepared for It is a pretty decent mystery novel with suspense action and some genuinely funny moments John Sandford has never disappointed till nowThrough out the book there are references to some shoot out that Virgil had been involved in It would be fun to read about it assuming the event transpires in some earlier novelI would recommend this book to mystery lovers

From plastic surgery commune with nature and while it didn't start out to be a place mostly for those with Sapphic inclinations that's pretty much what it is todayWhich makes things all the complicated for Virgil because as he begins investigating he finds a web of connections between the people at the resort the victim and some local women notably a talented country singer and the he digs the move he discovers the arrows. Hurray for this satisfying detective tale set in northern Minnesota Virgil Flowers a charming investigator with the state s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension gets called away from a fishing trip to solve a sniping murder of a tourist woman staying at a rustic lodge on a lake near Grand Rapids In chatting up women guests and staff at the lodge he learns the setting is used largely as a lesbian retreat The murdered woman worked in PR and promotions and showed some interest in helping a local female country band and maybe buying the resort Flowers is challenged by too many plausible motivations and suspects in the areas of money sexual jealousy and redneck craziness I love his humor and methods for drawing people out Sandford outdoes himself with a colorful cast of characters in this one His usual MO of wearing of T shirts figuring obscure rock bands makes for a great way to break the ice with the music crowd But his usual pattern of flirting and love conuests is a bit out of place in this set and a promising link up he finally succeeds at is continually frustrated from fulfillment by events I dug how Flowers uses fishing dreams and reveries while on the road as a mental venue to piece together clues When he finally homes in on the best candidate for the villain he has to make that final leap of proving it and an amazing leap it isThis is number 3 in a series of 7 and best for me of the 4 I ve read It is solidly in police procedural territory rather than a thriller
