Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what’s-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns.
The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers’ cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down. But even he doesn’t realize what’s about to happen next.
A killer is leaving a puzzling calling card in the mouths of his victims. And in the middle of a steamy Minnesota summer, Virgil Flowers of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension finds himself embroiled in an investigation with no easy answers?and no easy way out.
The second Virgil Flowers novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford
On a hot, humid summer night in Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a call from Lucas Davenport. A body has been found near a veterans memorial in Stillwater with two shots to the head and a lemon in his mouth exactly like the body they found two weeks ago.
Working the murders, Flowers becomes convinced that someone is keeping a list with many more names on it. And when he discovers what connects them all, he s almost sorry. Because if it s true, then this whole thing leads down a lot more trails than he thought it did and every one of them is booby-trapped."
