Thoroughly enjoyed this Virgil Flowers novel. I like John Sandford overall even though some of his characters' language can darn near make me topple over in my chair. But what I really enjoyed was the humor, which was inserted everywhere. Thanks, John -- that's always a relief in a novel that has malice, blood and gore. Sparkle was the most unbelievable character, but everyone else was mostly in line. I'll probably read this one again some day just for the fun of it.
