Escape clause a virgil flowers novel
Escape Clause (Virgil Flowers, #9) by John SandfordWhenever you hear the sky rumble, that usually means a storm. In Virgil Flowers’ case, make that two. The exceptional new thriller from the writer whose books are “pure reading pleasure” (Booklist)
The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large, and very rare, Amur tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are worried sick that they’ve been stolen for their body parts. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes those parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get what they need. Some of them are a great deal more extreme than others -- as Virgil is about to find out.
Then there’s the homefront. Virgil’s relationship wi th his girlfriend Frankie has been getting kind of serious, but when Frankie’s sister Sparkle moves in for the summer, the situation gets a lot more complicated. For one thing, her research into migrant workers is about to bring her up against some very violent people who emphatically do not want to be researched. For another…she thinks Virgil’s kind of cute.
“You mess around with Sparkle,” Frankie told Virgil, “you could get yourself stabbed.”
“She carries a knife?”
“No, but I do.”
Forget a storm – this one’s a tornado.

A detective whose beat can be anywhere across Minnesota, Virgil is a member of the Minnesota Bureau of Apprehension a sort of state equivalent of the FBI, operating across local jurisdictions. Although he often travels towing a boat, he regularly finds his beloved fishing interrupted by his boss Lucas Davenport landing him with a case. What cases they are! This is no exception. Thieves have stolen two very rare and dangerous Amur tigers from the Minneapolis Zoo and they executed the heist with mathematical precision. There are signs of collaboration from inside the zoo the tiger thieves possessed a copy of a vital key but in general Virgil soon deduces that the thieves are from out of town.
The prolific author is back with a new whodunit that's grisly and funny and gets full points for introducing a memorable villain. He has a large following among mystery readers, yet for some reason, this is my introduction to his writing.
