Description

In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You're about to get a visitor. It's an Israeli cop, and she's tailing a man who's smuggled out an extraordinary relic—a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon. Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses? He looks at the cop. She's not laughing. As it turns out, there are very bad men chasing the relic, and they don't care who's in the way or what they have to do to get it. Maybe Virgil should start praying.

        Starred review from August 19, 2013
        Thriller Award–winner Sandford ventures into Da Vinci Code territory in his clever, quirky seventh Virgil Flowers novel (after 2012’s Mad River). When an archeological dig in Israel turns up a stele—an inscribed piece of stone—with the potential to shake the roots of Biblical faith, Elijah Jones, a college professor who fears he’s dying, steals the precious artifact and flees home to Mankuto, Minn. Virgil, a Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent, at first simply attempts to recover the stolen object, but soon finds himself trying to outwit mercenary Turks as well as agents of the Mossad, Hezbollah, and Texas gazillionares, all of whom want the artifact for their own purposes. Despite the bloodthirsty fanaticism the participants display, the quest for the stone provides many opportunities for cross-cultural verbal confusion and violent slapstick. Though attracted to a sexy local criminal who’s become Jones’s accomplice, the exasperated Virgil mainly tries to stop the commotion before anyone gets seriously hurt. Unusually good-natured intrigue distinguishes this outing. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM.

      • content: Minnesota crime investigator Virgil Flowers returns in this seventh installment in Sandford's series, this time becoming ensnared in a strange tangle of biblical archaeology, international terrorism, and small-town Minnesota criminals. Eric Conger's narration shrewdly depicts the complex Flowers, who is somehow both serene and zealous as he tries to ascertain why a local professor would apparently steal a priceless artifact from an archaeological dig in Israel. Conger adds only slight characterizations to most of the international players but indulges in an over-the-top portrayal of a Texas millionaire. His quick pace is respectful of Flowers's quick wit and dry humor but still allows the listener to follow the story's convoluted twists. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
