Bluestem, Minnesota, is a quiet town where everybody knows everyone else's business and murder is unheard of. But now someone is killing off a generation of old-timers, and Virgil Flowers, of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, is in town to find the person responsible. Eric Conger uses a careful, edgy baritone to build the suspense in this clever thriller. Conger's reading and Sandford's tight and evocative dialogue render the characters as fully developed individuals, be they a washed-out trailer park mom, ex-con preacher of hate, or handsome Virgil Flowers himself. Fans of Sandford's Prey series will appreciate the tie-ins to that series and the occasional appearance of its hero, Lucas Davenport.
