    When a University of Minnesota professor is murdered after hours in his library study carrel, Virgil Flowers, officer of the state's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and colleague of another Sandford series character, Lucas Davenport, is sent to investigate. The professor seems to have his share of academic enemies and a string of ex-wives, so there are plenty of suspects. Series reader Conger has a deep, confident voice, and he handles the action deftly. He gives Flowers an easy-going, likeable, Midwest tone, and there is just enough vocal characterisation to keep the main players straight without being distracting. Conger has a little fun portraying the college students and academics, showcasing their personality quirks. He pays close attention to context clues, adding chuckles and other sounds when appropriate, and he manages to keep the tension high particularly in the later chapters as Flowers tracks the killer. Sandford has a built-in fan base, so there will be plenty of interest in his latest thriller. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
