Heat Lightning (Virgil Flowers Series, #2)

by John Sandford

Flowers is only in his late thirties, but he's been around the block a few times, and he doesn't think much can surprise him anymore. He's wrong. It's a hot, humid summer night in Minnesota, and Flowers is in bed with one of his ex-wives (the second one, if you're keeping count) when the phone rings. It's Lucas Davenport.There's a body in Stillwater, two shots to the head, found near a veterans' memorial. And the victim has a lemon in his mouth. Exactly like the body they found last week. The more Flowers works the murders, the more convinced he is that someone's keeping a list, and that the list could have a lot more names on it. If only he could find out what connects them all... and then he does, and he's almost sorry he did. Because if it's true, then this whole thing leads down a lot more trails than he thought it did-and every one of them is booby trapped. Filled with the audacious plotting, rich characters and brilliant suspense that have always made his books "compulsively readable" {Los Angeles Times), this is Sandford writing at the top of his game.

For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay-and he's waiting for the bill. <P> It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota.

There is worse to come-much, much worse.

So it's no surprise that Lily would ask him back to consult on another difficult case--this time, one she can't trust to her fellow NYC cops. Teaming up with New York's finest forensic mind, the irascible and brilliant Lincoln Rhyme, and Lincoln's partner Amelia Sachs, they set out to investigate the deaths of four young women, all illegal Mexicans, all of whom seem to be connected to the drug trade. The problem is: the killings may not be cartel hits--they may be carried out by corrupt cops looking to get information, and then silence the source. Or, as the veteran investigators will soon discover, they could be dealing with a very different kind of killer--and to draw him out, Lily and Amelia will have to pose as bait. For more exciting pairs, check out all eleven short stories in FaceOff!
