Holy Ghost

10 Dec

“Holy Ghost” is the latest novel by John Sandford.

In a small town in Minnesota, the Virgin Mary has taken to appearing in a small church. Is it a hoax? That’s really none of Virgil Flowers’ business, but the maniac who has taken to shooting people outside the church is!

The 11th Virgil Flowers novel is every bit as delightful as the previous ones. Virgil has grown a bit, settling in to the idea of being a father.

The book just zooms an bounces along. As usual the supporting characters are all well rounded and interesting. I am hoping for a couple of them to come back in future books.

My cup of happiness overflowed when Jenkins and Shrake appeared. The BCA’s bully boys are possibly my favourites of John Sandford’s supporting characters.

“Holy Ghost” is an excellent addition to the Virgil Flowers series, which has now overtaken the Lucas Davenport books as my preferred John Sandford reads.

Highly recommended.
