The first full length novel featuring Virgil Flowers. This is a solid introduction to this series. In this book Virgil is tasked with solving three murders within a few days in a town/location that has not seen a murder in half a century. Three themes that appear throughout the Flowers novels originate here. Virgil seems to have an unlimited supply of t-shirts featuring obscure musical groups; Virgil, seemingly irresistible to women, has an affair with the local sheriff's sister, and he drives back and forth lot. The first seems to reflect the writer's interest expertise as a music critic (See Broken Prey). The second seems to be a knock-off of Lee Child's Jack Reacher character. The last seems to be a filler to substitute pseudo action for something that will advance the plot meaningfully. Either that or the author wants us to think that Flowers is not particularly well organized. ( )

Virgil Flowers-tall, lean, late thirties, three times divorced, hair way too long for a cop's-had kicked around for a while before joining the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. First, it was the army and the military police, then the police in St. Paul, and finally Lucas Davenport had brought him into the BCA, promising him, "We'll only give you the hard stuff."

He'd been doing the hard stuff for three years now-but never anything like... ( )

Virgil Flowers of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has been pulled into an investigation with several murdered victims. It looks like someone has a personal vendetta and it doesn't look like the murders have stopped. It will be up to Virgil to sort through the evidence and find the killer. A good read!!

decent story but not great. Mary Zimko had recommended Virgil Flowers books and he seems a pretty good character but not great. murder of several folks in a small town in the west - led to a drug ring and a crazy serial killer. ( )

Virgil Flowers is sent to a tiny Minnesota town to solve a vicious murder. It's a fairly straightforward thriller, but Virgil is a fun character, with all his irreverence. I grew up in the Midwest, though not nearly as rural an area, and it was a nice trip back to familiar territory. If you like thrillers, you'll probably like this one, but it doesn't really stand out from the genre. ( )

Virgil Flowers
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399154779, Hardcover)

Three murders in just as many weeks in the quiet rural town of Bluestream is unheard of. It’s also no coincidence. And it’s not over: Detective Virgil Flowers is about to be pulled into the middle of a killer’s violent personal vendetta.
