Review quote

Sandford keeps the reader guessing and the pages turning while Flowers displays the kind of cool and folksy charm that might force Davenport to share the spotlight more often. *Publishers Weekly Flowers is a welcome addition to [Sandford s] body of work. Chicago Sun-Times [Sandford] maintains the page-turning momentum that makes his novels such a treat. If you liked Lucas, you ll love Virgil. The Tampa Tribune A book that will keep you turning pages, guessing, and completely immersed and engrossed in whatever Sandford wants to throw at you. It s a great ride, and Sandford proves that sometimes it s not the character, it s not the series, it s the writer. The Post and Courier An adrenaline rush peppered with laugh-out-loud moments.
