They were average kids looking for something to do.
Today they started killing people.

A modern-day Bonnie and Clyde are on the run through rural Minnesota—victim by victim they’re having the time of their lives. But when Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the hunt for the thrill-hungry kids, things take a shocking detour.


  • Loved it!

    Best Virgil Flowers yet. I am never disappointed with a Davenport or Flowers mystery.

    So slow! So predictable! Not the author's best work.

    Not as mysterious as V. Flowers has been, yet an excellent read.

    Awesome!!! Sanford kept me enraptured till the last sentence. I love Virgil Flowers!!
  • Price of ebooks too high

    By s2whalen
    Sanford is becoming template. And really publisher, do ebooks need to cost as much as paper?
  • Realistic

    By KingfishRich
    Agent Virgil Flowers is one of the best characters in fiction. Sanford does things a little different with this book. Among so many other things he makes a person kinda root for the bad guy. This is maybe his best work yet.

    Worst ending ever and the book was way too long for the plot
  • Did Sanford run out of gas or just give up?

    By Foxy1x
    Usually like his books but not this one. Kept hoping it would get better as I got further along but it didn't. Save your money!
