|Summary, etc.:||Virgil Flowers investigates a miracle ... and a murder ... in the wickedly entertaining new thriller from the master of pulse-pounding thrillers. Wheatfield, Minnesota: a huge city of all of seven hundred folks who define the phrase 'small town'. Nothing has ever happened in Wheatfield and nothing ever will ... until the mayor of sorts (campaign promise: `I'll Do What I Can') comes up with a scheme to put Wheatfield on the map. He's heard of a place where a floating image of the Virgin Mary turned the whole town into a shrine, attracting thousands of curious people and making the townsfolk rich overnight. Why not stage a prank in Wheatfield and do the same? No one gets hurt and everyone gets rich. What could go wrong? And then a dead body shows up. It turns out that lots can go wrong with a get-rich-quick scheme like this one ... and lots will. It'll take everything Virgil Flowers has to put things to right - before someone else dies.|

*Starred Review* The prolific Sandford has produced 28 Lucas Davenport thrillers since 1989, many of which were best-sellers, as well as the Virgil Flowers novels, of which this is the eleventh (after Deep Freeze?, 2017). And, holy smoke, Holy Ghost is a hot one! Something is cooking in Pinion, Minnesota. Not just the bad cheeseburgers and fries at Mom's Cafe, the only restaurant in the small town of 700 souls, or the sad chicken pot pies available at Skinner & Holland Eats and Souvenirs. But what is really on fire is the town's once-crumbling economy. A floating apparition of the Virgin Mary has appeared in the local Catholic church, attracting thousands of pilgrims. When the miracle is eclipsed by random sniper shootings and murders, Flowers is at wit's end trying to figure out what's going on. He gets lots of help from his usual posse, as well as some of the locals, who are so well described that the reader could easily pick them out of a lineup. The dialogue is sometimes biting and always witty, and the entire book is at once wicked and sublime. This would be perfect for fans anxiously awaiting the next Carl Hiaasen. They will be delighted to learn the distinctions between Cheeto and Cheez-It residues. But no palm trees; just lots of good corn acreage. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Sandford is a bona fide A-lister, and every new novel, whether starring Lucas Davenport or Virgil Flowers, is sure to generate public-library demand.
