Overview

In Dark of the Moon, #1 New York Times bestselling author John Sandford introduced veteran investigator Virgil Flowers, "an idiosyncratic, thoroughly ingratiating hero" (Booklist). Following a late-night phone call from his associate Lucas Davenport, Flowers is thrust back into the world of homicide investigation. A dead body has turned up with a lemon stuffed in its mouth-just like the corpse authorities found last week.
