The eighth Virgil Flowers novel by internationally bestselling
author John Sandford Barns, the chairman, looked around the room
and said, 'Okay. We can do this. Let's see a show of hands. It's
unanimous, or it's prison. Do we kill Clancy Conley?' "They all
looked around at each other, each of them reluctant to go first.
Then the fat man raised his hand, and then Kerns, and then the rest
of them. "'It's unanimous,' Barns said." In southeast Minnesota,
down on the Mississippi, a school board meeting is coming to an
end. The board chairman announces that the rest of the meeting will
be closed, due to personnel issues. "Issues" is correct. The
proposal up for a vote before them is whether to authorize the
killing of a local reporter. There are no votes against. Meanwhile,
not far away, Virgil Flowers is helping out a friend by looking
into a dognapping, which seems to be turning into something much
bigger and uglier -- a team of dognappers supplying medical labs --
when he gets a call from Lucas Davenport. A murdered body has been
found -- and the victim is a local reporter... * * * Praise for
John Sandford and the Virgil Flower novels * * * 'Along the way to
the satisfying ending, Virgil displays the rough humor and rough
justice that make him such an appealing character' Publishers
Weekly on Deep Freeze 'A knowing portrait of small-town life
layered into a very well plotted mystery. Virgil understands that,
in small towns, no one ever outgrows high school... One of the very
best novels in a superior series'Booklist (starred review) on Deep
Freeze 'Add a gripping storyline, a generous helping of exquisitely
conceived characters and laugh-out-loud humor that produce
explosive guffaws, not muted chuckles, and you're in for the usual
late-night, don't-even-think-of-stopping treat when Flowers hits
town' Richmond Times-Dispatch on Deep Freeze 'An outstanding novel'
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Escape Clause 'Perfect
entertainment' Kirkus Reviews on Escape Clause
