From the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, Detective Virgil Flowers gets embroiled in a series of murders in a small Minnesota town, where retribution is the motive. ( )

The first VF novel and it ws pretty good. A middle aged VF unravels a complex series of murders while taking out a large meth lab. It seemed to drag in a few places and there was some odd punctuation but a good read. Sandford did a good job about disquising the murdered though it was somewhat confisung and thin when he went back and interviewed the killers early acquaintences. Loog forward to the next one. ( )

Good fast moving story.

Good atmosphere and Sanford manages a little romance (which usually kills a good thriller) without killing the story. Keeps it light and keeps the mystery going. The cops aren't perfect here and a tactical misstep or two adds to the body count. But, the killer isn't a James Bond super villain either so the story is believable. I haven't read the Davenport Prey series but I had heard a lot about them. So when this book came up on a Kindle deal of the day I bought it. I'm glad I did. ( )

I still say that John Sandford was trolling his readers with the first book in his series. He took all of the complaints of the Lucas Davenport series and just went to level 10 with everything. Lucas was a man that no man can say no to, Virgil rolls into town and gets a woman interested in him in like 5 minutes. Lucas does things out of bounds, well Virgil just goes and works around local law enforcement until he needs them as well and oh in one case several people get shot up and I don't even know what was happening at this point. This first book was a waste of time.

"Dark of the Moon" follows Virgil Flowers who was introduced in the Lucas Davenport series. We know that Virgil has been married three times and this book pretty much delves into how stupid Virgil is when it comes to women. Poor guy, he's unable to just be a professional without noting how hot or not hot some woman is. Blech.

Anyway, "Dark of the Moon" has Virgil called in on a case involving a man and woman who were murdered in the home in the town of Bluestem. Virgil is called in due to the way that the dead man was posed. On his way to the town, he stops when he sees a local rich man's house on fire. Virgil is quickly involved in both cases and wonders if something ties them together. This being a Sandford book of course something ties them together. Something stupid, but something does. We also have Virgil get involved with someone and lord that whole thing just made me tired. I already updated you all on how they watched her brother (the local sheriff) have sex and I just want to put that mess out of my mind. This book almost broke me. Almost.

Virgil is not worth me talking about besides his whole thing when he's trying to write the case as a mystery novelist made me laugh and laugh. He's a terrible writer. His reasoning skills are up there with Lucas. They just seem to come to conclusions about things and they are always right.

The other characters were barely developed. It was hard to keep everyone straight because the two cases tie back to something else and to the rich guy who was also a secret sex addict. Let's just say something happened way back when tied back to something and somehow the word moon got thrown in.

The writing was early Sandford and the flow was awful. The book felt endless after a while.

The ending made me sigh because per early Sandford, we find out about a character (something unsavory) but Sandford via his character just let's it go. I was bored and annoyed the entire time while reading this. ( )
