By John Sandford
Virgil Flowers investigates a miracle--and a murder--in the wickedly entertaining new thriller from the master of "pure reading pleasure" (Booklist)
Pinion, Minnesota: a metropolis of all of seven hundred souls, for which the word "moribund" might have been invented. Nothing ever happened there and nothing ever would--until the mayor of sorts (campaign slogan: "I'll Do What I Can") and a buddy come up with a scheme to put Pinion on the map. They'd heard of a place where a floating image of the Virgin Mary had turned the whole town into a shrine, attracting thousands of pilgrims. And all those pilgrims needed food, shelter, all kinds of crazy things, right? They'd all get rich! What could go wrong?
When the dead body shows up, they find out, and that's only the beginning of their troubles--and Virgil Flowers'--as they are all about to discover all too soon.
Holy Ghost2By Med FinderBasic. If your looking for Robert Parker quality character driven novel, look elsewhere. Scale of 1-10...4. Read Louise Penny instead for award winning cop drama.
Holy Ghost5By Jimi RayFun read
I hate myself for forcing myself to finish this1By ScubaDyerIt’s just a horrible book. No character development, no one to like, one, this one, hates all the characters for being so stupid. Silly plot. That’s just one fool's opinion for paying for it.
Holy Ghost3By S diggyNot my favorite Sandford book, and I have read every one. Virgil was made to appear as a Barney Fife character (bumbling idiot) Way too many pages about gun information, who cares? Goofy story line, did John really write this book? Hard to believe he did. Don' waste your money like I did.
Holy Ghost4By EMuenchFor the most part a good read. Not quite up to par as far as Virgil stories. Too many non-character characters. I read in my spare time, so rarely more than a chapter or two at one sitting, so I found the whole story a bit too tangled.
Holy Ghost2By Whickey58I usually love Virgil Flowers books but this one was slow, dragged and had way too thin a story line. I would skip this book and hope Sanford returns to form in the future.
Expletive language distracts3By 75 plusI have read 41 of your books and liked the stories. I don’t remember in the previous books that there was as much really offensive language as in this one, even a nine year old swearing at the end. The language was distracting to the story. I have tried 4 times to put in a nickname but does not accept one and I don’t think they are already used. Why.
Slow1By JsnsathyaNot a lot of action. It was a little boring. Not like the usual Virgil Flowers novel.
Sad1By Dsg357This book marks the end of an era. Sadly, will never buy another John Sandford book.
