Book Review: Heat Lightning by John Sandford

The best-selling author of the Lucas Davenport Prey novels has returned with his second book featuring Detective Virgil Flowers.
Flowers is called up to investigate a series of killings that appear to be the work of the same killer. He determines that all of the victims had a common link; they served in Vietnam in the turbulent period before the U. S. pullout and eventual fall of the South Vietnamese govenment.
I found the book to be as fast paced and absorbing as Sanford's prior works and in many ways find Flowers to be a much more interesting protaganist than Lucas Davenport. I highly recommend this for lovers of mystery/thriller novels.
