In Dark of the Moon, #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford introduced veteran investigator Virgil Flowers, "an idiosyncratic, thoroughly ingratiating hero" (Booklist). Following a late-night phone call from his associate Lucas Davenport, Flowers is thrust back into the world of homicide investigation. A dead body has turned up with a lemon stuffed in its mouth-just like the corpse authorities found last week.

"Sometimes it seems like Virgil Flowers's biggest decision is which T-shirt to put on to confound or irritate the people he meets. Though he may look like a Woodstock throwback, Flowers is a top-notch investigator who's been spun off from Sandford's Lucas Davenport series. In this second outing, Flowers is investigating a perplexing series of torture murders that end with the victim's mouth being stuffed with a lemon wedge. Eric Conger's laid-back depiction of Flowers makes him seem like a modern-day Bret Maverick. Seemingly without effort, he always manages to do the right thing. Conger's tempo keeps the listener in suspense right up to the unorthodox ending--which contains the only appearance of the weather phenomenon for which the book is named. M.S.
