Hold onto your hats, folks, because John Sandford is back with another action-packed thriller featuring our favorite crime-fighting duo: Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers. In this newest installment, the two detectives are faced with their toughest challenge yet, and it’ll take all of their wits and guile to come out on top.
The book, with its ASIN B0BRMJKZ97, is published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons on October 3, 2023. Coming in at a weighty tome of over 500 pages, the book has all the makings of a classic Sandford adventure: high stakes, pulse-pounding action, and unforgettable characters.
As always, Sandford’s writing is crisp and engaging, drawing the reader in from the very first line. His indefatigable wit and sly humor are on full display here, keeping the tone light even as the tension ratchets up to almost unbearable levels.
But it’s the characters that really make this book shine. Lucas Davenport, the tough-as-nails detective with a heart of gold, is as compelling as ever. His wry observations and quick thinking make him a force to be reckoned with, and it’s always a pleasure seeing him in action.
And then there’s Virgil Flowers, Davenport’s laid-back and unconventional partner. Flowers is a breath of fresh air in the world of hard-boiled detective fiction, a man who prefers fishing and rock ‘n’ roll to chasing down bad guys. But make no mistake, when it comes to solving crimes, Flowers is every bit as skilled as Davenport.
Together, these two make an unbeatable team. Their dynamic is electric, with Davenport’s gruff seriousness playing off Flowers’ irreverent humor in the most delightful way. It’s clear that Sandford has a real affection for these characters, and it shows in every scene they share together.
But don’t let the laughter fool you – this is a dark and twisty tale, full of murder and mayhem. Sandford’s villains are some of the most menacing and cruel you’ll ever have the misfortune to encounter, and the suspense is unbearable at times. It’s the kind of book that will keep you up all night, feverishly turning the pages to see what happens next.
One thing that sets this book apart from some of Sandford’s previous work is its timely and topical subject matter. Without giving too much away, let’s just say that the case Davenport and Flowers are working on is ripped from the headlines in the best possible way. It’s clear that Sandford has done his research, and the way he weaves real-world issues into the fabric of his story is nothing short of masterful.
Of course, no Sandford book would be complete without a healthy dose of Midwestern charm. The book is set in Sandford’s beloved Minnesota, and the author’s affection for his home state is evident on every page. From the descriptions of the landscape to the dialect of the locals, the book oozes with Minnesota flavor. It’s a nice touch that makes the story feel all the more authentic.
All in all, this is another winner from John Sandford. His ability to craft thrilling, character-driven stories is unparalleled, and fans of the genre will find plenty to love here. If you’re new to the world of Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers, this book is a great place to start. And if you’re already a fan, well, you’re in for a treat. So grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and get ready for a wild ride. You won’t be disappointed.
