Virgil Flowers Synopses: The second book of the Virgil Flowers series, Heat Lightning has Virgil sent out to Stillwater to investigate a victim who has been shot in the head twice near a veteran’s memorial. There is a lemon in the victim’s mouth. The scene is not unfamiliar to Virgil, as they found an identical one last week. Can Virgil find out who will be next on the killer’s hit list and stop him before he strikes again?

In Rough Country (book three of the Virgil Flowers series), Virgil is in a fishing tournament in a remote part of Minnesota when he receives a call from Lucas Davenport. A woman has been shot while kayaking at a nearby women’s only resort. Virgil must dig to find out some of the possible motives behind this killing (of which there are many). He also finds out that this is not the first murder of this type and perhaps not the last.
