Virgil Flowers clearly has his hands full. His latest assignment finds the brilliant detective on the trail of a couple of kidnapped tigers. Flowers is tasked with the unenviable task of locating the exotic felines before they meet an untimely end. The media scrutiny shines a suffocating light on Flowers and the BCA. Virgil has to weed his way through the medical quacks who would look to trade in exotic medicine while keeping an eye on a crazed animal rights assassin looking to take down one of those quacks. The robbers who would be the beneficiaries of inside help in their theft quickly delve into a treacherous double cross when a key piece of evidence turns up. The action amps up as the bodies start to fall. In addition to this, Virgil’s girlfriend is endangered by the work of her sister in researching slave labor in a local business. Will Virgil be able to solve the cases before he becomes the next cadaver?
Escape Clause excels at engaging the reader in a fun and action-filled story. The story line moves fast, the twists are smart, the characters are well written. John Sandford has done it once again in furthering the story of Virgil Flowers. Grade A mystery!
