The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large and very rare Amur tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are worried that they’ve been stolen for their body parts. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes those parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get what they need. Some of them are a great deal more extreme than others - as Virgil is about to find out. Forget a storm...this one’s a tornado.

"The exceptional new thriller from the writer whose books are pure reading pleasure." (Booklist)
Praise for the Virgil Flowers series: "Sandford keeps one last surprise up his sleeve, and it’s a doozy. Exhilaratingly professional work by both Virgil and his creator." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Sandford’s best Flowers book to date. This book is the most fun I have had reading in a long time." (The Huffington Post)

not enough bite -- not up to normal JS

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

a much better story --weak

Has Escape Clause put you off other books in this genre?

but fewer to choose from

Would you listen to another book narrated by Eric Conger?


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

I hope this was a one off generally liked VF books by JS

Bad guys get their just desserts as does a tiger

Entertaining, funny, very satisfying yarn. Easy listening very good for car journeys. I don't think I am spoiling the story by saying that everything comes up roses again for virgil flowers.
