        August 27, 2012
        In this high-octane thrill ride, bestseller Sandford’s fifth novel featuring Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agent Virgil Flowers (after 2011’s Shock Wave), Lucas Davenport, Virgil’s boss (and star of his own series), dispatches Virgil to a remote corner of the state to deal with “a bad one.” Four people are dead: a married couple in Shinder, another two in nearby Bigham. The gang responsible—armed and dangerous teens Jimmy Sharp, Tom McCall, and Becky Welsh—have already murdered one woman during a robbery, and Virgil soon suspects them in these other crimes. Fearful that the killing spree hasn’t run its course, Virgil pulls out all the stops to get inside the minds of his quarry while he sorts through all the possible motives for the spate of deaths. Virgil’s penchant for wisecracking, which in less skilled hands could have been annoying, serves to deflate the tension, and his backstory is simple enough to allow new readers to easily keep up. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM.

        September 15, 2012
        Virgil Flowers and the forces of Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension battle trigger-happy Bare County Sheriff Lewis Duke in pursuit of a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde. Tom McCall and Becky Welsh think that Jimmy Sharp has led them to Dr. John O'Leary's home to relieve Marsha O'Leary of a diamond necklace she recently showed off around town. No sooner have they broken in, however, than Jimmy shoots the O'Learys' oldest daughter, Agatha Murphy, without getting the necklace. In their haste to exit, Jimmy shoots Emmett Williams for his brother-in-law's Dodge Charger, and their murder spree has begun. First they clear the decks by killing Jimmy's father and Becky's parents; then they murder a McDonald's owner and his wife for some traveling money; then, when a bank robbery goes bad, they kill a Bare County deputy. Called in to the first murder scene, Virgil alertly realizes that Jimmy aimed for the one and only O'Leary window he could easily get through and wonders if Agatha's murder was something other than a panicky reaction--something like a murder-for-hire arranged by Agatha's estranged husband, smarmy insurance salesman Dick Murphy. As Virgil, who wants to talk the killers in, tilts with Duke, who wants to shoot them down on sight, Sandford explores the unstable dynamics among the three fugitives and raises questions about how any of the easily identified culprits can ever be brought to justice. None of these minor complications, though, are enough to raise Virgil's sixth (Shock Wave, 2011, etc.) much above the level of a highly competent but routine manhunt.

        Three angry teenagers without prospects but with access to guns make like Bonnie and Clyde and a sidekick, often sending cell phone images of their crimes to a local Minnesota TV station. Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the crowd hunting down these nasties--just before things get really bad. Flowers seems about as popular as Sandford regular John Prey; buy up.
