Deep Freeze
A Virgil Flowers Novel #10
by John Sandford 
Narrated by Eric Conger

Class reunions: a time for memories—good, bad, and, as Virgil Flowers is about to find out, deadly—in this New York Times bestselling thriller from John Sandford. 

Virgil knows the town of Trippton, Minnesota, a little too well. A few years back, he investigated the corrupt—and as it turned out, homicidal—local school board, and now the town’s back in view with more alarming news: A woman’s been found dead, frozen in a block of ice. There’s a possibility that it might be connected to a high school class of twenty years ago that has a mid-winter reunion coming up, and so, wrapping his coat a little tighter, Virgil begins to dig into twenty years’ worth of traumas, feuds, and bad blood. In the process, one thing becomes increasingly clear to him. It’s true what they say: High school is murder.

Momma Says: 4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Virgil's back for another investigation in Trippton, and while we know early on who the killer is, it's always fun to watch that Fu#!in' Flowers do his thing. Along with the murder case, Virgil gets pulled into another case that is more amusing than mysterious, but he soon finds out that the women of Trippton aren't to be trifled with. While this one doesn't have as much action as previous books in the series, we do get an engaging story full of Sandford's wit, especially with Virgil's pal, Johnson, on the scene. True to form, there are some twists along the way with one interesting twist in Virgil's personal life to close out the story. How that last one will go remains to be seen and I'm not sure how I feel about it given Virgil's history, but it should be entertaining to watch it play out in the next book. As always, Eric Conger does an excellent job on the narration with a style that is perfect for this series.
