PRAISE FOR THE VIRGIL FLOWERS SERIES
“Another brainy thriller from a prolific author, Deadline fulfills readers’ expectations of Sandford’s fiction: tense, smart and character-driven.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Sandford’s best Flowers book to date. This book is the most fun I have had reading in a long time.” —The Huffington Post
“The biggest joys of this series are Flowers himself (his boss is Lucas Davenport from Sandford’s Prey novels), the case of eccentric supporting characters, and the humorous dialogue.” —Shelf Awareness
“Pure reading pleasure.” —Booklist
“Sandford keeps one last surprise up his sleeve, and it’s a doozy. Exhilaratingly professional work by both Virgil and his creator.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Rich characters [and] the descriptions of small-town life, politics and corruption and the concurrent trails of action make for a fast and entertaining read.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

There are some disconnects in the story - at one point Honus is with the girlfriend and then is magically transported from Frankie's place to Virgil's Mankato home. Sanford novels are usually more carefully crafted than that. For my money - part of Virgil's character is the ease with which he charms all women (okay, I am envious). Virgil is a one woman guy in this book - nothing wrong with that, but it takes something off of his character.
I’d read all Sandford’s “Prey” novels then decided to order the most recently released Virgil Flowers one. That lead to my ordering all the rest of this series. After they’d all arrived, I put them in publication order. Beginning with the first of the series,I began a John Sandford’s Virgil Flowers series reading marathon. If you’re a mystery/thriller fan you’ve probably read Sandford
and know what to expect. Excellent character development, good descriptions of people and places, interesting story lines, plots with twists and turns, real life, although not for the sensitive to vulgarity, conversations and page-turning, have to see what happens next stories. Rather than get into the storyline of each book in the series, since so many other reviews have already done that, I think that pretty much says it all. The one thought I had after completing each one was…”How does he come up with all these different story lines?” If you like reading mystery/thriller books, I highly recommend John Sandford.
Sanford has written some great plots but needs to remember his audience reads crime stories. Any detective worth his badge would have solved the case pronto but had short story
