Reviews

At the start of bestseller Sandford's solid second thriller to feature officer Virgil Flowers of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal ApprehensionA(after Dark of the Moon), a gunman shoots Bobby Sanderson as he's walking his dog one night in Stillwater, Minn., then places a lemon in the dead man's mouth.ASanderson's killing is one in a series, and Flowers soon discovers that all the victims served together in Vietnam.AWhen Flowers learns that Vietnamese firing squads stuck lemons in the mouths of their human targets, he pursues leads in the local immigrant community, where he hooks up with the attractive daughter of a radical professor who'd written a paper about Agent Orange.AEventually, he settles on the owner of a security company involved with the upcoming Republican National Convention as his prime suspect. While the less than credible plot builds to a highly unlikely resolution,Amost readers will enjoy spending time in the company of the genial Flowers. (Oct.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Having had good luck when he took time out from his Prey novels to introduce Virgil Flowers, a Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator, Sandford brings Flowers back to investigate a string of murders near a veterans memorial. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Praise for Heat Lightning "Sandford returns to Flowers (and more than just a bit of Davenport, too) in Heat Lightning, and the ride's another wild one."--Richmond Times-Dispatch "Features a colorful protagonist quite distinct from Davenport, and contains the usual snappy dialogue and suspenseful action."--The Tennessean "A fun, breezy read."--The Post and Courier "[A] fast-paced thriller...Flowers is a disarming and sometimes charming investigator. This book will appeal to readers of Sandford's Prey series as well as fans of adventures like those by Lee Child."--Library Journal "Solid...Most readers will enjoy spending time in the company of the genial Flowers."--Publishers Weekly "The very last surprise...is a honey."--Kirkus Reviews
