DARK OF THE MOON by John Sandford - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by John Sandford.

Virgil Flowers-tall, lean, late thirties, three times divorced, hair way too long for a cop's-had kicked around for a while before joining the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. First, it was the army and the military police, then the police in St. Paul, and finally Lucas Davenport had brought him into the BCA, promising him, "We'll only give you the hard stuff." He'd been doing the hard stuff for three years now-but never anything like this.

In the small town of Bluestem, where everybody knows everybody, a house way up on a ridge explodes into flames, its owner, a man namedJudd, trapped inside. There is a lot of reason to hate him, Flowers discovers. Years ago, Judd had perpetrated a scam that'd driven a lot of local farmers out of business, even to suicide. There are also rumors swirling around: of some very dicey activities with other men's wives; of involvement with some nutcase religious guy; of an out-of-wedlock daughter. In fact, Flowers concludes, you'd probably have to dig around to find a person who didn't despise him.

And that wasn't even the reason Flowers had come to Bluestem. Three weeks before, there'd been another murder-two, in fact-a doctor and his wife, the doctor found propped up in his backyard, both eyes shot out. There hadn't been a murder in Bluestem in years-and now, suddenly, three? Flowers knows two things: This wasn't a coincidence, and this had to be personal.

But just how personal is something even he doesn't realize, and may not find out until too late. Because the next victim . . .may be himself.

Filled with the audacious plotting, rich characters, and brilliant suspense that have always madehis books "compulsively readable" (Los Angeles Times), Dark of the Moon is vintage Sandford, further proof that he "is in a class of his own" (The Orlando Sentinel).

5 of 5 Dark of the Moon / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. Clement from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
Virgil Flowers, a Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, was introduced in the Prey Series. The three-time divorced man reports to Prey Series Hero Lucas Davenport, but Virgil pretty much operates on his own, calling Lucas on the phone with reports.  Virgil is brought in because of the multiple murders. Virgil is a Man's man. Above all,  he is straight cop and likes to stir up trouble. Both a religious cult and survivalist theme used in this novel, along with a town grudge against Bill Judd. Sandford's plots have been described as audacious.  That definitely fits for this read. This is a gritty and compulsive page turner. This is the first Sandford novel I've read.  I will definitely check out the Lucas Davenport series.
