mostly for those with Sapphic inclinations that's pretty much what it is todayWhich makes things all the complicated for Virgil because as he begins investigating he finds a web of connections between the people at the resort the victim and some local women notably a talented country singer and the he digs the move he discovers the arrows Third in the Virgil Flowers thriller subseries and revolving around a roving detective with a penchant for band T shirts and writing fishing and hunting articles This series is an off shoot from Sandford s Lucas Davenport and doesn t rely upon itMy TakeIt s an intriguing start as McDill thinks of her scientist dad s explanation on the difference between full moons on the horizon and overhead It s true enough that you can sell the image easier than you can sell the truthI m thinking that the epithet everyone assigns to Virgil refers to is his clearance rate Then again I ve been working downtown for ten years and I ve never been hit on by a college girl Sedlacek said looking after her What have you got that I don t Good looks personalitycowboy boots Fuck me Sedlacek said I ve been trying to get by on intelligence Wendy is such a drama ueen She likes stirring everyone up screwing anybody and fighting At least she comes by it naturally eye roll To be fair everyone does seem to roll with itWow I did not like the Sextons and then to hear what everyone else has to say about themwell now I know why I didn t like em I did have to laugh at Susan Boehm gettin all uppity on Virgil Then her kid deflates the heck out of her and Virgil stomps out any last bits of hot air lolVirgil sees himself as the genial observer a role which is shot to hell with his two stories being in The New York Times Magazine and I see him as a stirrer upper whispering in one ear after another stirring the pot to see what bubbles up next I did miss having Virgil writing this case up the way he did in Dark of the Moon 1 and Heat Lightning 2Windrow is right No artist thinks or wants to think they re in a business All they want to do is create And make enough money to create some I m still trying to get a handle on Sandford s Virgil even as I am enjoying
