The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times -bestselling author.

The superstore chain PyeMart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project, though, until someone decides to take matters into his own hands.

The first bomb goes off on the top floor of PyeMart's headquarters. The second one explodes at the construction site itself. The blasts are meant to inflict maximum damage-and they do. Who's behind the bombs, and how far will they go? It's Virgil Flowers's job to find out . . . before more people get killed.

Virgil is growing on me, he seems to keep his cool in any situation except those involving romance. With the ladies he seems rather inept, too bad for Virgil he will have to be satisfied with catching the bad guys.

Entertaining read by Sandford. His Virgil Flowers character is difficult not to like.

The mystery drags on a bit too long. Found myself began to fast read the last two chapters after realizing the "new clues" kept on coming. As it turned out, one of the two unknowns turned out to be an overlooked scheme that should have been an easy discovery by the most detective neophytes.

I have read all of Sandford's novels twice and a few of them, three times. I'll probably read them all again in the future. Lucas Davenport, Virgil Flowers, Del Capslock, Shrake, Jenkins, Marcy Sherrell et al are my ALL TIME favorite fictional detectives. I hope Sandford never stops writing about these characters. It would be nice if the library would obtain copies of his non-fiction as well. Those are published under his real name... John Camp
