I enjoyed this book. It wasn’t fantastic but was an enjoyable read. Sandford always produces.
My first Virgil Flowers story. Thought it was just ok. Large Print version had a recurring typo -- "but" kept showing up as "ut".
Not my favourite f*cking Flowers book.
SPOILER: Virgil and Frankie having a baby ?
This is a 4 1/2 out of 5. I look forward to Virgil Flowers but this one isn't up to the others thought it was a good story and I did enjoy it.
Virgil finds himself back in Trippton Minnesota tasked with solving the murder of local bank president, Gina Hemming, and helping an LA PI Margaret S Griffin to shut down an illegal Barbie modification operation run by Jess McGovern.
In typical Flowers contemplation, the dolls bring him more bodily harm - as the mouse to a clan of angry cats - making Virgil resort to carrying his gun.
The characters all have their story line nicely concluded and Virgil finally meets Jess without having to arrest her.
Another "good ole boy" story featuring Virgil Flowers of the MBCA
Another enjoyable romp with Virgil in small town Minnesota! Yes, it's a bit formulaic, but it's also funny, entertaining, and a good escape from the December chill in Minnesota!
Virgil beat up by a bunch of ladies -told you he should carry that gun! One of the more interesting in the series but old Virgil can't keep on hanging around these small towns without backup-he is simply too nice a man to be involved with murderers and porno dolls. Sandford has to get his plot lines from real actions, no one could dream these characters up. Think I might move to the north country lots of action there.
Love Virgil Flowers. and this one has more of Johnson Johnson in there so there were times I was laughing so hard I was crying. I would like to see a bit more interaction between Lucas Davenport and Virgil in the next one.
Another in the Virgil Flowers series which seem to have less of the descriptive gore and gratuitous killings than Sandford's prey series books. Virgil's light banter adds dry humor to the situations.
I am tiring of the frequent mention of a particular soft drink in Sandford's books. Makes me wonder if this is paid product placement. One star off for that.
This is the first book that I have read by John Sandford and I am sure that I will be reading more of his books. In Deep Freeze, Virgil Flowers, who works for the State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, is sent to Trippton, Minnesota to investigate a murder, it seems like everyone is a suspect. But he has his work cut out for him when another woman is murdered. He has to figure out who is doing this before someone else get hurt. This is written with some humor in it as well and made for a very good read. Looking forward to trying another book by him.
Sandford is in a small group I have of 'A' list authors. He doesn't fail me now. Though I've always liked the Davenport character better, that F'ing Flowers continues to grow on me.
Virgil is back and as humorous and blunt as ever. The character development is superb. I loved all the characters; what a fantastic read. I’m very much looking forward to the next installment of the "Virgil" series, along with all his cronies who blunder their way through a murder committed, along with the chaos and drama.
