"That F*!#ing Flowers!" We've all heard that exclamation coming from Lucas Davenport, his boss Rosemarie Roux, and other working compatriots of Virgil Flowers over the years of John Sandford's novels, but we've never really known why. Now, we know! Virgil Flowers is brought forward in this Sandford book and is really given some character. The story line has lots of twists and turns-- CIA involvement in a 30-plus year Viet Nam War-era coverup that extends into a current-day Minnesota killing spree-- and like his boss Lucas Davenport in his Porsche, Virgil drives his old pickup truck through them all, getting shot at the whole time. Flowers is an amazing investigator-- a little crazy, perhaps, or maybe just "unconventional"-- but with an uncanny ability to figure out the "who dunit" of the crimes while on one of his well-known fishing trips. Muskie and Northern Pike fishing will never be the same... Virgil Flowers really comes out as a "fleshed-in" character-- more than just an honorable mention in a Lucas Davenport story. A great "listen"-- I loved it!
