Whenever you hear the sky rumble, that usually means a storm. In Virgil Flowers’ case, make that two. The exceptional new thriller from the writer whose books are “pure reading pleasure” (Booklist).
The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large, and very rare, Amur tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are worried sick that they’ve been stolen for their body parts. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes those parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get what they need. Some of them are a great deal more extreme than others—as Virgil is about to find out.
Then there’s the homefront. Virgil’s relationship with his girlfriend Frankie has been getting kind of serious, but when Frankie’s sister Sparkle moves in for the summer, the situation gets a lot more complicated. For one thing, her research into migrant workers is about to bring her up against some very violent people who emphatically do not want to be researched. For another…she thinks Virgil’s kind of cute.
“You mess around with Sparkle,” Frankie told Virgil, “you could get yourself stabbed.”
“She carries a knife?”
“No, but I do.”
Forget a storm—this one’s a tornado.

Escape the Clause
Fast paced with lots of action, making it an enjoyable read. End of the " bad guy " a bit predictable, but well deserved.
Virgil Flowers books
Loved everyone of these Virgil Flowers sagas. He is my hero and nobody writes a nail biter like John Sanford.
Enough of Sandford's Politics
Probably read about two dozen of the "Prey" and Flowers novels. This is the last. I'm finished with the liberal flavor of his writing. The liberties he takes with the Catholic faith in this book are the last straw.
