Karen Kleckner - Library Journal: Virgil Flowers, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) investigator, returns after Dark of the Moon in this fast-paced thriller. As Minneapolis/St. Paul tightens security for the 2008 Republican National Convention, dead bodies are being posed at local veterans' monuments. BCA Chief Lucas Davenport (last seen in Phantom Prey) assigns Flowers to investigate the assassination-style killings-the victims, all men linked to the last days of the Vietnam War. To learn what exactly these men had in common, Flowers contacts a former 1960s radical and begins romancing the man's Vietnamese daughter. Working with Davenport and his BCA colleagues, Flowers is led on a high-speed chase through the Northwoods that ends in a breathless, pitch-black shoot-out. With his long, blond hair and vintage band T-shirts, outdoorsman Flowers is a disarming and sometimes charming investigator. This book will appeal to readers of Sandford's "Prey" series as well as fans of adventures like those by Lee Child. Highly recommended for public libraries.
