Publisher's Summary

The thrilling new novel in the number one New York Times best-selling series.
In Southeast Minnesota, down on the Mississippi, a school board meeting is coming to an end. The board chairman announces that the rest of the meeting will be closed, due to personnel issues. "Issues" is correct. The proposal up for a vote before them is whether to authorize the killing of a local reporter. The vote is four to one in favor.
Meanwhile, not far away, Virgil Flowers is helping out a friend by looking into a dognapping, which seems to be turning into something much bigger and uglier - a team of dognappers supplying medical labs - when he gets a call from Lucas Davenport. A murdered body has been found - and the victim is a local reporter.

Best in this series

Loved this installment. A little lighter. I actually laughed out loud twice at some of the dialogue. The story kept me interested throughout, and the narration was excellent.

About what you would expect

This story is filled with a whole lot of characters who are easy to hate. Perhaps the newspaper editor is the worst of them all. You have a primary plot and two sub plots that Sandford did an excellent job of weaving together. There's never any doubt that the dogs and the good guys will prevail but the journey is fun anyway. Standard Virgil Flowers fare with maybe a little less female intrigue than usual.
