Mad River (Virgil Flowers Novels)by John Sandford
Synopses & Reviews
The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.
The superstore chain PyeMart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project, though, until someone decides to take matters into his own hands.
The first bomb goes off on the top floor of PyeMart's headquarters. The second one explodes at the construction site itself. The blasts are meant to inflict maximum damage-and they do. Who's behind the bombs, and how far will they go? It's Virgil Flowers's job to find out . . . before more people get killed.
They were average kids looking for something to do.
Today they started killing people.
A modern-day Bonnie and Clyde are on the run through rural Minnesota—victim by victim theyre having the time of their lives. But when Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the hunt for the thrill-hungry kids, things take a shocking detour.
Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Wayzata, an entire family has been killedandmdash;husband, wife, two daughters, dogs.
Thereandrsquo;s something about the scene that pokes at Lucasandrsquo;s cop instinctsandmdash;it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution heandrsquo;s seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesnandrsquo;t seem to fit.
Until it does. And where it leads Lucas will take him into the darkest nightmare of his life.
