The latest Virgil Flowers (aka “that f*ckin’ Flowers) novel from John Sandford is awesome. Yes, I said it. Awesome. I have found that I like Virgil Flowers even more than Lucas Davenport from the author’s Prey series. The laid-back, unorthodox detective faces the challenge of finding out who is trying to keep a large megastore (think Walmart) from being built in a small town via bombings. Virgil is unorthodox and appealing. I highly suggest crime thriller lovers read this one!!!

This is Kellerman’s latest entry in the Alex Delaware series of mysteries. He and his absolutely non-stereotypical gay cop friend, Milo, work on unusual murder cases together. This wasn’t my favorite of the series, but overall, not bad. You might want to wait until the eBook price drops or it comes out in paperback – depending on how you roll. You won’t be disappointed, but it’s not winning any prizes either.
I finally finished I’d Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman. In spoiler-free terms, I’d know this plot anywhere. It wasn’t BAD… it just didn’t live up to my expectations. I expect my thrillers to be thrilling, and most of the “thrill” part was in the past in this novel. In fact, even the end didn’t “thrill” me.
Lippman writes pretty good suspense/thrillers, but I’m not crazy about this one. If you’re looking for “edge of your seat”, this isn’t it.
