Escape Clause

 

By:  John Sandford

Virgil Flowers #9

ISBN: 0399168915

Publisher: Penguin/Putnam

Publication Date: 10/4/2016

Format: Other 

My Rating: TBR

The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel in the #1 New York Times–bestselling series.

Whenever you hear the sky rumble, that usually means a storm. In Virgil Flowers’s case, make that two.

 

The first comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large Siberian tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are very concerned that they’ve been stolen for their organs. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes their parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get – and keep—what they need. As Virgil is about to find out.

 

Then there’s the home front. Virgil’s relationship with his girlfriend, Frankie, has been getting kind of serious, but when Frankie’s sister, Sparkle, moves in for the summer, things get a lot more complicated. Sparkle has a roving eye, and it’s fixed right on Virgil. 

 

Forget a storm—this one’s a tornado.

PRAISE FOR THE VIRGIL FLOWERS SERIES

 

“Another brainy thriller from a prolific author, Deadline fulfills readers’ expectations of Sandford’s fiction: tense, smart and character-driven.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
 
“Sandford’s best Flowers book to date. This book is the most fun I have had reading in a long time.” —The Huffington Post
 
“The biggest joys of this series are Flowers himself (his boss is Lucas Davenport from Sandford’s Prey novels), the case of eccentric supporting characters, and the humorous dialogue.” —Shelf Awareness
 
“Pure reading pleasure.” —Booklist
 
“Sandford keeps one last surprise up his sleeve, and it’s a doozy. Exhilaratingly professional work by both Virgil and his creator.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Rich characters [and] the descriptions of small-town life, politics and corruption and the concurrent trails of action make for a fast and entertaining read.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
