Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down. But even he doesn't realize what's about to happen next.… (more)

Another good Sandford, though this one didn't seem to have quite the verve and energy of some of the other Virgil Flowers stories. Still, a good read! ( )

Join Virgil Flowers on a fast paced, roller coaster ride as he helps track some younger folks who seem to have gone on a killing spree. Small towns, small time police, and kids with nothing to lose all come into play.

John Sandford never disappoints :) ( )

This was my first time reading a book from John Sandford. I didn't realize it was a part of the Virgil Flowers series before reading, but it didn't affect my understanding or enjoyment of the story at all.

There was a point in the book that took me by surprise, and made love this book even more. I enjoyed the flow of conversation and the action-packed storyline.

I'm going to be looking out for the rest of the series! ( )
