Praise for Deadline

“Another brainy thriller from a prolific author, ‘Deadline’ fulfills readers’ expectations of Sandford’s fiction: tense, smart and character-driven.” — Richmond Times Dispatch

“Rich characters [and] the descriptions of small-town life, politics and corruption and the concurrent trails of action make for a fast and entertaining read.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“Sandford's best Flowers book to date. . . . There is a lot of drama and mayhem in this story and readers of traditional Sandford books will be satisfied for sure. Still if you like a little humor in your plots, this book will more than sate that desire. This book is the most fun I have had reading in a long time.”—Huffington Post

“There’s a lot going on in Deadline . . . The biggest joys of this series are Flowers himself (his boss is Lucas Davenport from the Sandford's Prey novels), the cast of eccentric supporting characters and the humorous dialogue.”Shelf Awareness

“Sandford keeps one last surprise up his sleeve for the denouement of the dognapping case, and it's a doozy. Exhilaratingly professional work by both Virgil and his creator that breaks no new ground but will keep the fans happy and add to their number.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Stellar . . . Sandford is an accomplished and amusing storyteller, and he nails both the rural characters and terrain as well as he has skewered urban life in past installments.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Sanford balances straight-talking Virgil Flowers’ often hilariously folksy tone and Trippton’s dark core of methamphetamine manufacturers and sociopaths; the result is pure reading pleasure for thriller fans.”—Booklist

Praise for Storm Front
 
“John Sandford has the Midas touch. [Storm Front is] exciting, complex and funny all the way through. Virgil is a unique character [and] the beauty of Sandford’s writing is that the narrative of the book is told in perfect harmony with Flowers’ personality . . . Entertaining reading all the way.” —The Huffington Post

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

John Sandford is the author of twenty-four Prey novels; the Virgil Flowers novels, most recently Storm Front; and six other books. He lives in New Mexico.

I'm a fan of Sandford ... or maybe it should read I WAS a fan of Sandford ... his latest books all are mediocre at best ... at least in my opinion. Unfortunately it's hard to explain precisely what's wrong. Used to be that when I got a new of his books I would have to take the rest of the day off and finish it until sunrise. Not anymore ... One problem might be that there are no real surprises. In this book for instance the criminals are being identified within the first 10% of the book. You know who they are and you know they're going to loose ... and they do ... takes some pages to get it done, but as it is all comes down to one single clue which is also revealed at the beginning. That clue leads directly to a person, that person is weak, ... no surprises really. Then of course Virgil does stupid things, effectively gets good guys killed by negliciance, does not act on clear threads so that most of his proof gets burned away much AFTER he was told that that might be a risk and so on ... Another problem is how chances fall ... good guys and bad guys jump into arbitrary boats ... bad guy has first pick ... and takes the slower boat but does not incapacitate the other boat (having a shotgun) ... really ... Then of course I do NOT like it at all if I have to read the f*** word 20+ times on a single page and I do not need bathroom and sex details sprinkled all over the place ... and I also don't care for the idea that civilians build an armed mob behind face masks and body armor and attack people and this idea obviously to be endorsed by the author as he lets it end without consequences for the attackers. Not to mention that it is outright silly that our hero Virgil even after multiple bad experiences leaves his pistol where he can't reach it and can't shoot with it anyway. Sorry, but that just ...Lesen Sie weiter... ›

If you like Sandford, and if you like the Floweres series, then you'll like this. And 2, I'm originally from Minnesota, so it's a taste of home as a little bonus.

HASH(0x8fb3b5dc) von 5 Sternen Best Virgil Flowers Novel Yet 9. Oktober 2014
Von Tired Turtle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
John Sanford has outdone himself with this eighth book in the Virgil Flowers series. There is something here for every reader's interest. Dog lovers will become fans as the story begins with an effort to find dogs stolen by a scalawag who thinks nothing of taking man's best friends and selling them to medical laboratories. As Virgil's rather goofy friend Johnson Johnson ropes him into taking on the task of being an animal detective in a small town, things rapidly heat up as corrupt citizens go off the rails and start a chain reaction of crime resulting in murder. The pace is rather fast as a whole host of criminals get jumbled into a rats nest of separate crimes which keep getting tangled up. It is up to Virgil and a cast of oddballs and fellow cops try to sort out the various schemes and bring the perps to justice. The twists and turns are fun, with a lot of humor in this book. Highly recommend "Deadline" as a great way to spend a few hours with an old friend--Virgil Flowers.

Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A very enjoyable read. And recommended. Flowers is still that effin' Flowers.
A series devotee wants the same thing, and something new, from the character. That must present quite a problem for a writer. Not to be formulaic, but still write a worthy episode. In this novel, readers 'see' many of the characters from earlier novels, moving in their respective spheres, and enjoy the recurrence of their personalities as they make their contributions to this particular story.
Humor, often sly and subtle, is still a good part of the writing. So is the fact that Flowers is no Superman. He doesn't go A, B, C,......Z. He'll go A, B, J, B again, and then MNO. Since we know the bad guys early on, it's the journey. Actually, we know just one set. There are several things going on at once.
All in all, for me, a good book in the series. And I liked how everything ended up. Of course, I hope, more to follow.

While reading, I checked out one of the bands mentioned, which has several YouTube videos. Ain't the internet wonderful?

HASH(0x8fb33984) von 5 Sternen Virgil Flowers Scores Again Policing in Small Town Backwoods Minnesota 8. Oktober 2014
Von carol irvin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I started reading this yesterday and finished it today. It was just great. Virgil Flowers does not let us down, as per usual. He gets sucked into showing up in small town Minnesota when a fishing buddy of his calls and tells him his friends and neighbors are victims of dognappings. Virgil meets them in their local bar and finds a group of people who have grown up with rifles in one hand and fishing rods in the other. They are outraged by their dogs being stolen and are just about ready to lynch the person doing it. Is Virgil going to spend our entire story solving dognappings?

Although the dog aspect is a great part of this story, the town in which it has occurred also has a lot of other criminal activity going on. There is meth being cooked there and then trucked elsewhere in the USA to be sold by a drug kingpin. Let's not forgot one of Virgil's buddies in law enforcement heads up ATF in Chicago. So is it a meth story? Yes, in part but...

Then murders start happening in this small town and they tie into the school board. Turns out the school board has been doing creative accounting with its budget (embezzlement) and now needs to shut down some people in town who want to rat out its members. They get so carried away with killing anyone who gets in their way that they even set their sights on Virgil.

So this story, in short, has everything, and I could not put it down. It was great and I am only sorry I am done.

HASH(0x8fb38e04) von 5 Sternen Another Flowers Winner 8. Oktober 2014
Von T. Wicker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Sandford continues to develop the Flowers series as distinct from yet connected to the Davenport series. Despite sharing some of the same characters, the mood of the two series can be recognized from the outset. It's not just that Virgil Flowers is usually out the more rural areas of Minnesota (which adds interest in itself), but the tone is intense in a completely different way than the Davenport books. This installment doesn't disappoint in that regard.

What starts out as a favor for his friend, Johnson Johnson, turns into three different lines of investigation that twine around each other delightfully. Not as dark as some of the earlier stories, but just as deadly. You may have to suspend your disbelief at some of the goings on - but then you'll pick up a newspaper realize people really can be that crazy.

My only complaint is that I read these books too fast.

Love it! Virgil, Johnson, Shrake and Jenkins investigate dognapping, murder, meth cooking and crooked school board members. As always, compelling story that gives the reader a variety of ideas for music, bumper stickers and fishing.

Believable characters. Entertaining dialogue and great twists throughout the story.

I will re-read this story and always look forward to, pre-order when possible, new works by this author.
