One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator- and a young man hits him on the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead, and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident." Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers, who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell. Remorse? Virgil isn't so sure, and as he investigates he begins to uncover a multigeneration, multifamily conspiracy-a series of crimes of such monstrosity that, though he's seen an awful lot in his life, even he has difficulty in comprehending it...and in figuring out what to do next.

John Sandford you should be flogged for saying that ugly thing about Grandma Moses. And them that let you print it should be flogged right along with you. Shame on all of you.

Virgil Flowers #4. In Homestead, Minnesota, the local all-American boy has murdered a local farmer. When he's later found dead in his cell, an apparent homicide, it's time to call in Flowers. Another fun read from Sandford, combining gruesome detail with hysterical banter.

Another great Virgil f@%king Flowers novel! If you read this series, you will learn that his colleagues refer to him in this manner, which Virgil admits he was offended by at first, but got used to it. Another first rate read by Mr. Sandford. Fast paced and very hard to put down!

Fun read, fast-paced, and despite being really predictable it is the perfect book for a weekend at the beach or a couple of days of rainy weather

As with most of Sandford's books, this was an excellent read. The bad guys were truly abhorrent and their endings were appropriate.

Bad Blood is a "Virgil Flowers" novel. Virgil is an investigator for the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. His investigative methods often leave his superiors shaking their heads, but he gets results. Lots of twists and turns in this plot as Virgil uncovers a religious cult, child/sexual abuse, and pornography.

He's back..that (expletive deleted) Flowers. As with Sandford's other series, you can't go wrong with these books. The bad guys (& girls) in this one are particularly heinous & some may find the plot subject too disturbing but Sandford always balances it with witty dialogue & characters we've come to know & enjoy from previous books. Look forward to the next one.

Another Virgil F*@!ing Flowers masterpiece. The only trouble with John Sandford's books is that I just don't do anything else until I'm finished.
