Rough Country Audiobook is the third story in the Virgil Flowers thriller series by John Sandford and revolving around a roving detective with a penchant for band T-shirts and writing fishing and hunting articles. This murder mystery is an easy listen with a number of characters to keep straight without being overwritten.
As always, Sandford spins a complex plot with an unknown killer in an unusual situation in the Minnesota north country.
Filled with the brilliant plotting and compulsively readable prose that are his hallmarks, Rough Country is another “immensely satisfying tale by a writer at the top of his game” (The Providence Journal-Bulletin).
Virgil’s always been known for having a somewhat active, er, social life, but he’s probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort, where a woman has been shot while kayaking. The resort is for women only, a place to relax, get fit, recover from plastic surgery, commune with nature, and while it didn’t start out to be a place mostly for those with Sapphic inclinations, that’s pretty much what it is today.
This makes things all the more complicated for Virgil because as he begins investigating, 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 move he discovers the arrows of suspicion that point in many directions, encompassing a multitude of motivations: jealousy, blackmail, greed, anger, fear.
And then he discovers that this is not the first murder, that there was a second, seemingly unrelated one, the year before. And that there’s about to be a third, definitely related one, any time now.
And as for the fourth… well, Virgil better hope he can catch the killer before that happens.
Because it could be his own.

Rough Country Audiobook mp3 is an interesting story, although not quite as good as the debut book for the Virgil Flowers series. Good plot with lots of little kinks and curves, and Sandford’s trademark guy humor. Also many familiar characters carried over from the Lucas Davenport series, so I felt I was hangin’ with my old friends.
Really enjoy reading about Virgil Flowers and his ways of solving a crime He always solves it too and it’s never what you think while reading the story but wraps it up at the end. As is often the case in Sandford’s work, there are many characters and while they give the novel a sense of reality and complexity it is somewhat difficult to keep track of them all (a special challenge for an audiobook). In my view the way many of the characters are in the spotlight for a short time and then kind of fade away quickly leads too strongly to the real villain by a simple process of elimination in the reader’s mind.
There are numerous clues, including a shell casing, but it starts to complicate. She had been staying at a lodge for women only. Most of the guests are lesbians – not all, or all of the time mind you, and that included the victim who occasionally reached out to whichever gender was nearest!
Overall this is an enjoyable crime thriller with an interesting lead character and some good action scenes, and eventually, the series clicked up to the level I’ve come to expect from Sandford.
