Excerpt from Deep Freeze

I hope you had a chance to get a copy of A Psychic with Catitude and some other books last weekend!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

Last week I read Deep Freeze, by John Sandford. This is part of the Virgil Flowers series, which I’ve read at least one book from before. John Sandford writes complex mysteries with plenty of twists and turns and misdirection. Virgil Flowers is a relatable detective, smart, and always a good read.

He reeled in the lure carefully until the ducktail hit the floating fabric. He set the hook and towed the thing over to his show. There was weight to it. A lot of weight. The closer it got, the more it looked like a body.  

John Sandford, Deep Freeze

Virgil knows the town of Trippton, Minnesota, a little too well. A few years back, he investigated the corrupt—and as it turned out, homicidal—local school board, and now the town’s back in view with more alarming news: A woman’s been found dead, frozen in a block of ice. There’s a possibility that it might be connected to a high school class of twenty years ago that has a mid-winter reunion coming up, and so, wrapping his coat a little tighter, Virgil begins to dig into twenty years’ worth of traumas, feuds, and bad blood.

In the process, one thing becomes increasingly clear to him. It’s true what they say: High school is murder.

Comments

  2. I have not read this series.
