    4.0 von 5 Sternen Another installement in the Virgil Flowers series 3. Januar 2010
    Format:Taschenbuch
    Another fictional outing for Sandford's other main character, Virgil Flowers, who is an investigator for Lucas Davenport. Flowers is on holiday and happily fishing when he gets a call from Davenport to tell him that there has been a murder at a ladies-only resort. A businesswoman has been shot in the head and Flowers soon discovers that there are no lack of possible suspects to choose from. Could it be the partner that she was soon about to dump? The employees she was soon about to fire? A love / jealousy angle from other people she was sleeping with? Or does it have something to do with a local music band she was planning to promote?

    Flowers had better hurry up and find the killer because they are preparing to strike again - and the next victim could be Flowers himself.

    The Virgil Flowers series has gradually improved. The first book was absolutely terrible, the second much better and this one is even better. However, there are times when the dialogue just rambles a bit and there are some unnecessary scenes, as if Sandford was padding the story out a bit. Therefore only 4 stars. Still a very good book and highly recommended.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Amusing but not thilling 14. April 2013
    Format:Audio CD
    Police procedural about a complex murder case in Minnesota. An all-girl country band and a lake-side resort frequented by lesbian and bisexual women play a major part in this book. Until the final pages, it remains unclear who committed the murder Virgil Flowers (VF) has to solve. And there will be more (near) casualties...

    John Sandford (JS) wrote 23 books about crime fighter Lucas Davenport (LD) in Minneapolis/ St. Paul, who is unique among fictional or real-life policemen because he drives to work in a Porsche. [He became rich selling the games and simulations he invented to bigger firms]. After many depressing thrillers re its victims starring Lucas, JS created another hero and series situated in rural Minnesota, but with LD still nominally in charge. This is book 3/6 about Virgil's cases so far.

    Virgil has solved more murders than anyone in Minnesota, but for Davenport he is also a liability: He sleeps with witnesses, forgets where his official handgun is, and being a fanatical angler, takes his boat tied to his official car to murder sites. Worse, he was once married and divorced 3 times within 3 years. He looks like a pop star, wears rare T-shirts with names of forgotten bands. His focus on women is boobs and spectacles. As a pastor's son, he thinks about God for a few minutes before falling asleep, every day...

    This is not a series full of alcohol or office politics: VF drinks cola, sometimes a can of beer, and colleagues help him wherever he turns up. The 2 books this reader has read about VF were not very well plotted: In this case, I sensed parts of the outcome well ahead of the finish, and find it hard to accept that VFs laid-back worldview and lifestyle is so easily accepted by fellow policemen. But US readers love him and awarded this book on average 4 stars. I find 3 stars a rich reward, but please, judge for yourselves.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen stunning suspense - firecracker prose 7. November 2009
    Format:Taschenbuch
    No question that thriller master John Sandford knows how to hook a reader early on. He's done it with 19 Prey novels and he does it again with this, the third in his Virgil Flowers series.

    It had been an idyllic day now turning to evening as Erica McDill, who heads an advertising agency, was out on Stone Lake paddling toward what she called the pond. One partner in the agency had died, the other was retired and agreed to sell McGill his remaining stock. She would have "absolute control. So Excellent."

    McGill's mind was busy, full of plans, wondering how to get rid of what she called the "footdraggers," workers not pulling their weight. At the same time she was looking for an eagle to return to its nest high in a white pine. "She saw it a half mile out, unmistakable in its size, a giant bird floating along on unmoving wings." That was all she saw - "The killer shot her in the forehead."

    At the same time Virgil Flowers along with his pal Johnson is enjoying a fishing tournament not too far away in northern Minnesota. His sport is soon interrupted by a phone call from Lucas Davenport saying Virgil needs to investigate the murder of a woman at Eagle Nest Lodge, an upscale resort for women only. It doesn't take long for Virgil to discover that much of the resort's popularity is due to the privacy provided for lesbian affairs or to have flings with the good-looking underage male employees.

    In addition, Erica's murder was not the first to have occurred at the Lodge, another woman died the year before. Motives? There are a slew - jealousy, revenge, love, hate, greed. Erica had been involved with Wendy, the lead vocalist, in a nearby country band. Not a shrinking violet, Wendy had ambition and Erica made some promises but now she was dead.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Please, people, review the BOOK, not the price 5. Oktober 2009
    Von Barry S. Sharpnack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    I read this book, and I loved it just as much as the previous two Virgil Flowers books. He's an interesting detective, and I always like John Sandford's plots. This one was well thought out, and had a strong ending. What I expect from Sandford. Great as always.

    But I am TIRED of reading reviews from people that do nothing but complain about the price. If you have a gripe about the price, contact Amazon customer service! Don't give the book a one-star review because you don't like the price. This is a place for BOOK REVIEWS. It is not a forum for launching a protest against Amazon's pricing policies.
    These reviews complaining about the price are improper and unfair to the author, and also unfair to fans who may get the wrong impression of the book.

    So please, don't be misled by the bad reviews. This is an excellent read. If you don't like the price, then wait for the paperback.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Virgil is a sexy beast 2. Oktober 2009
    Von Kathy Kaiser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    Okay, I admit it. I've got a crush on Virgil Flowers, John Sandford's great new detective. Flowers is reminiscent of Lucas Davenport during his younger, single years. Davenport is now older, married, and unfortunately boring. So, I've been thrilled that Sandford created a younger, hipper, sexier detective, one who thinks about God a few minutes every night before he goes to sleep but oozes sex appeal during the daylight hours. Whereas Davenport dealt with his depression and mental demons, Virgil has a brighter outlook on life. That's refreshing.

    The plot is fast-paced and involving. While I've been reading John Sandford for almost 20 years, I was wholly taken by surprise at the end of the investigation. The final twist is interesting and unnerving. Totally didn't see that coming. But, it's Virgil Flowers with his quasi surfer look, obscure and sometimes old-school band t-shirts, cool demeanor, and quiet intelligence that really floats my boat. He's a great character. I'm already looking forward to the next book.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Rough Country Hits It! 4. Oktober 2009
    Von Kathy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
    I've got to say that Virgil really grows on you. The action and twists kept me guessing the entire time. I couldn't put it down. I've liked Virgil since Invisible Prey, (back then I wondered what kind of a name was Virgil Flowers for a hippy-type cop?) his laid-back manner and his aversion to guns. That's so funny for a cop in his position to not like guns the way he does. I've always liked the Prey novels and John Sandford's really done it up right again. Each Virgil Flower's offering keeps getting better. Although, I felt a little sorry for Virgil at the end of Rough Country. I won't elaborate for spoiler sake. But come on! Didn't he suffer enough in the line of duty? Isn't the hero supposed to get a little something in the end? It was an excellent read all the way around. If John will keep writing them, I'll keep reading them!

    3.0 von 5 Sternen An actual REVIEW! - I've read the book - 3  Stars 3. Oktober 2009
    Von Brian Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    I've long been a Sanford fan, and have REALLY enjoyed the Virgil Flowers books. I find him fresh and innovative, and a terrific counterpoint to Lucas Davenport's dourness.

    There's quite a bit in this book to appreciate: first and foremost, the irony of chronic womanizer and hound Flowers finding himself smack-dab in the middle of a murder case heavily populated with beautiful - and gay - women.

    You see, a murder has taken place at a resort hotel patronized exclusively by women - especially gay women. The victim's gay, as are many of the suspects and witnesses and other characters. Gay women.

    What's a hound like Virgil to do?

    Though this is a really clever device for a while, the blush does come off that rose, and there's only so far it can be driven as the primary mover of the story.

    And that's why I didn't rate the book higher. After a while, we have to address the fact that there's supposed to be an actual story here. There is, in a sense: it's fun seeing Virgil driving and flying hither and yon chasing down clues and leads. The problem is this: less than halfway through the book, I'd figured out who the perp was and why that person committed the crime.

    Oh, there was a slight twist thrown in at the end that I hadn't figured out, but I had the right perp and motivation at about page 120 or so.

    So.... Buyer beware. If you're looking for a puzzler, this isn't going to satisy. If you're looking for a very light romp, some beach or airline reading, then this book's for you.

    PS... to you Kindle whiners. This isn't the forum for that. Write an email to Amazon or something. No one wants to wade through your tantrums while trying to figure out if this is a book they want to read.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen A confession... 16. Oktober 2009
    Von Sheryl McCallister - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    I read quite a few procedurals, and since Lucas Davenport first came gunslinging onto the scene chasing the maddog killer, he's consistently been by far my favorite 'serial cop.'

    But....

    I think I need to confess that I've been cheating on Lucas recently.

    With That F***ing Flowers, of all people!

    He's just so laid BACK, you know? And always looking for a way to show a girl a good time before he gets his. Not to mention that it's a lot easier to hang out with a guy who wears vintage t-shirts instead of Italian suits.

    I find myself watching the release dates list, wondering which of them I'll be spending the night with next. I guess it's a good thing that these are fictional men....
