As Flowers starts to ask questions, he finds a web of connections between the people at the resort, the victim and some local women, notably a talented country singer. And the more he digs, the more he discovers the resort to be a hotbed of jealousy, blackmail, greed, anger, and fear.
Then he discovers that this is not the first murder, that there was a second, seemingly unrelated killing the year before - and that there's about to be a third, definitely related one, any time now. As for the fourth...well, Virgil had better hope he can catch the killer before that happens. Because it could be his own.

Enjoyable if slightly unbelievable
I am a big fan of John Sandford and I have really enjoyed the new Virgil Flowers series- but Rough Country is a little 'out there'; it starts off well with an intriguing murder, gets busy with the plot, then unfortunately starts to get tangled up in its own cleverness and then trips over its own feet. The climax, when it comes, is a little too predictable, a little too overworked. That being said, its not a bad yarn, I just don't think this is Sandford's best book- Shockwave, the sequel, is a lot better and is a great return to form.
Eric Conger, as always, delivers on the narration, giving a slick rendition of a slightly trite story.
