Virgil Flowers will have to watch his back--and his mouth--as he investigates a college culture war turned deadly in another one of Sandford's "madly entertaining Virgil Flowers mysteries" (New York Times Book Review).
At the local state university, two feuding departments have faced off on the battleground of science and medicine. Each carries their views to extremes that may seem absurd, but highly educated people of sound mind and good intentions can reasonably disagree, right?
Then a renowned and confrontational scholar winds up dead, and Virgil Flowers is brought in to investigate . . . and as he probes the recent ideological unrest, he soon comes to realize he's dealing with people who, on this one particular issue, are functionally crazy. Among this group of wildly impassioned, diametrically opposed zealots lurks a killer, and it will be up to Virgil to sort the murderer from the mere maniacs.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Our favorite wisecracking, trash-talking, cowboy boot–wearing detective is back in action, and domestic bliss hasn’t changed him one bit. Virgil Flowers has his hands full helping run a farm with his extremely pregnant girlfriend, Frankie, in John Sandford’s 12th book in this series. But when a prominent University of Minnesota neuroscience professor is murdered, exposing his double life, Flowers is sent in to find answers. His keen instincts are as sound as ever, but we really love his trademark irreverence, which he uses to throw shade on everyone from bitter Minneapolis cops to lofty academics. Virgil Flowers is one of the smartest detectives in current fiction, and his attitude makes him the one we’d most like to have a beer with.
