Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on December 16, 2018
Sanford's two main characters, Lucas Davenport and Virgiul Flowers, have over the years provided hours of pleasure. No more. The 11th Flower book is sadly repetitive--plot, subplot, small town, witty repartees and a feeling that I've just been conned out my $17.95 Sanford needs a new hero, and a new line of thought. By the time I finished reading Holy Ghost, I no longer cared whether Flowers solved the crime (murders, main plot) or saw through the apparition of the Virgin Mary in a small town church (subplot.) Flowers is now engaged to be married, so even the faint amusement garnered from watching him spar with female characters is gone. I suspect the Sanford machine will keep cranking out novels. After all, what publisher would give up such a good thing? But it's sad to see a great crime writer become uninteresting.
