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.
