About this Book

Fresh from his “spectacular” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) debut in Dark of the Moon, investigator Virgil Flowers takes on a puzzling—and most alarming—case, in the new book from the #1 bestselling author.

The introduction of Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers by author John Sandford was an immediate critical and popular success: “laser-sharp characters and a plot that’s fast and surprising” (Cleveland Plain Dealer); “an idiosyncratic, thoroughly ingratiating hero” (Booklist). Despite being in his late thirties, Flowers has been around the block a few times and doesn't think that there's a lot that can surprise him anymore. Think again.

On a hot and humid summer night in Minnesota, Flowers is in his bed with one of his ex-wives (the second one if you're keeping track) when the phone rings. It's Lucas Davenport, reporting that there's a dead body in Stillwater. The victim had two gunshot wounds to the head, found near a veteran's memorial, and had a lemon in his mouth.

Exactly like the dead body they found last week.

The more Flowers works this string of homicides, the more convinced he is that someone's got a list. A list that could have a lot more names on it. He could potentially crack the case if he could find out what connects them all...but will he regret finding the connection?

If he's right, then a hornet's nest has been stirred up because the whole thing leads down a lot more trails than he originally thought, and each and every one of them is booby-trapped.

This is vintage Sandford, as Heat Lightning is filled with hte audactious plotting, rich characters, and brilliant suspense that has always made his books "compulsively readable" (Los Angeles Times).
