Whenever 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 Vi
Virgil is about to find out.
Then there’s the home front. Virgil’s relationship with 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 k
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.
