Rough Country John Sandford Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The murder of a successful advertising executive leads Detective Virgil Flowers to the unlikely scene of the crime: a peaceful and bucolic wooded resort with as many suspects as it has secrets...

While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, Virgil Flowers receives a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a brutal murder at a nearby resort for women only. As Virgil begins investigating, he finds a web of connections between the people at the resort, the victim, and some local women, notably a talented and popular country singer. The more Virgil digs, the more he discovers the arrows of suspicion point in many directions, encompassing a multitude of motivations: jealousy, blackmail, greed, anger, and fear.

Then Virgil discovers something that sends his investigation reeling. This is not the first murder connected to the Eagle Nest Lodge. Nor will it be the last...

    Had it pegged abt 200 pages in but a good read. Funny but sensitive-like Flowers himself
  • Below par

    By Jwalczuk
    I love nearly all John Sandford’s books featuring the characters Lucas and Virgil. This was just not compelling in any way. I finished it because I had purchased the hardback, but really basically boring.

    Virgil's brain is scrambled by sex fantasies in this thin plot. I knew whodunit before page 50.

  • Disappointed

    By Adam G23456
    After reading a positive review, I decided to give this book (and the author) a try. I found the prose clumbsy, the story only somewhat interesting, and contrary to the review, lacking in humor.
  • Great book

    I really enjoyed the Kidd series and of course I enjoyed the Prey series, (for awhile) then I got tired of Davenport having bad days when the Porsche needed a tuneup. It was like John Sanford was righting for the wealthy one percent. Now with the Virgil Flowers books I can identify with the characters again, the humor is perfect the story lines are Sanford at his all time best. Let's hope Virgil sticks around for awhile.

    I read all of the Prey novels. I enjoyed them a lot but quite frankly, had started to get a bit bored of Davenport. Branching off with Virgil Flowers was a great idea at this point in the series. A mention or brush with Davenport is fine with me, or even with Davenport as a minor character, which this book does. If you read all the Prey novels, you'll surely enjoy Sandford's fresh direction with Rough Country.
