The brilliant new Virgil Flowers thriller from the #1
New York Times-bestselling author.
One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load
of soybeans to a local grain elevator- and a young man hits him on
the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits
until he''s sure he''s dead, and then calls the sheriff to report
the "accident." Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers,
who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy''s found
hanging in his cell. Remorse? Virgil isn''t so sure, and as he
investigates he begins to uncover a multigeneration, multifamily
conspiracy-a series of crimes of such monstrosity that, though
he''s seen an awful lot in his life, even he has difficulty in
comprehending it...and in figuring out what to do next.
