Heat LightningLarge Print - 2008
On a hot, humid summer night in Minnesota, Flowers is in bed with one of his ex-wives when the phone rings. It's Lucas Davenport. There's a body near a veteran's memorial in Stillwater with two shots to the head. The victim has a lemon in his mouth - exactly like the body they found a week ago.
The more Flowers works the murders, the more convinced he is that someone's keeping a list, and that the list could have a lot more names on it. If he could only figure out what connects them. But when he does connect the dots, he almost wishes he hadn't. If his suspicion is correct, there will be a lot more trails - every one of them booby-trapped.

SummaryAdd a Summary
This is your basic gristled detective story where he figures all these un-attached things to solve the crime.
Virgil Flowers works for the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and despite his long blond hair and usual attire of jeans and aged rock t-shirts, he gets called for a lot of tough cases. And this one is tough. The first body is discovered near a veteran's memorial, execution style with a lemon in his mouth. And the list continues, all with the same M.O. He and his team frantically work to find the connection between the murders and how many more names are on the list. The trail winds down several paths and across several states. At the hub of the trails is the revenge killing for a massacre that happened in Viet Nam years ago. Can he stop it before more innocent bodies drop?
