Virgil knows the town of Trippton, Minnesota, a little too well. A few years back, he investigated the corrupt - and, as it turned out, homicidal - local school board, and now the town's back in view with more alarming news: A woman's been found dead, frozen in a block of ice. There's a possibility that it might be connected to a high school class of 20 years ago that has a midwinter reunion coming up, and so, wrapping his coat a little tighter, Virgil begins to dig into 20 years' worth of traumas, feuds, and bad blood. In the process one thing becomes increasingly clear to him. It's true what they say: High school is murder.

Virgil gets the s*** beat out of him...
By a bunch of women! While investigating the murder of another woman found in a frozen river. The woman is the bank president (reason enough for many to dislike her), in the process of getting a divorce from a man questioning his sexual identity and having an S&M tryst with someone Virgil can't identify.
At the same time a woman from the toy company Mattel is trying to find who is messing with their Barbie line of dolls. They're turning them into little sex dolls that say things they were never supposed to say or look (especially Ken's addition).
If you're familiar with the Virgil Flowers series then you're already getting ready for the sarcasm, snappy comebacks and great humor his character is known for. If you've never listened to a Flowers novel, they can be read as stand alone novels but for character development I would read/listen to them in the order they were written. But either way get ready for a real "humdinger" of a story.
Eric Conger is the voice of Flowers. He delivers crazy lines in dead pan that would have me rolling. Perfect.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that F*****g Flowers.

Not many surprises here
I don't think i like knowing up front who the killer is. It seems backwards to me & i keep wanting to scream out the answer to the detectives. there were some good side line stories though that kept the book from becoming too boring. it also brought out the people in this world who need help, so like i say not many surprises here.
