Just OK3By MiketaReview Heat Lightning I've read many of the Prey series and was very impressed with John Sandfords excellent characters and mystery plots. When I saw he also had a series with a new character (cop) called Virgil Flowers I was excited to read it. The story was interesting with real life characters but no-one that was either unique or that wasn't a stereotype. The flow was smooth and easy to read but offered nothing that wasn't predictable or made it hard to put down. Heat Lightning offered nothing in it that would qualify it as a thriller or wow you with a few chapters of non stop action. It read more like a Michael Connelly novel without the twists and sub plots. If your looking for a straight depiction of just what a typical cop goes through to solve a crime you will like this series, but if your looking for hard to solve mystery or exciting plots there is a lot better out there.
Heat Lightening5By NiminaI liked this book. Great characters and good action. Build-up and end game are well thought out. Great author.
