Two bodies in two days. One is murder. The other is suicide. Virgil Flowers never imagined that discovering the connection would lead him into the perverse history of the Minnesota farm community, and almost unimaginable darkness.

While there have been other popular crime/thriller series over the past 20 years, very few if any of the authors have been able to maintain both continuity and high quality writing. John Sandford is the consistent exception. Bad Blood continues the story of Virgil Flowers (who was skillful spun off from Lucas Davenport) while maintaining the unique Minnesota setting and characters from the very first of the "prey" novels. Except for one excessively dramatic gun battle which seemed a little too unrealistic, the entire book is filled with crystal clear images that seem to be as sharp and clear as the winter air.
Highly recommend this book!
Bad blood review
Disturbing subject, but no one tells a story better than John Sandford. Virgil Flowers is one enjoyable detective. I always enjoy his relaxed attitude.
Not his best
An entertaining book and I am glad I read it but a tale without a twist or turn. Sandford has a likable hero in Virgil without all the domestic ties of Davenport and there Sandford has it right. But I want a more convoluted plot and more action. What action there is in this book is very well done, incidentally. Sandford has a good horse but needs to let him have his head and run. Sandford has done better.
