A #1 New York Times Bestseller Virgil Flowers investigates a miracle--and a murder--in the wickedly entertaining new thriller from the master of "pure reading pleasure" (Booklist). Wheatfield, Minnesota: a metropolis of six hundred souls and change, for which the word "moribund" might have been invented. Nothing ever happened there and nothing ever would--until the mayor of sorts (campaign slogan: "I'll Do What I Can") and his precocious teenage buddy come up with a scheme to put Wheatfield on the map. Should something dramatic occur--say, that the apparition of the Virgin Mary miraculously appeared at the local Catholic Church--the whole town would be turned into a shrine, attracting thousands of pilgrims. And all those pilgrims needed food, shelter, all kinds of crazy things. The town would get rich! What could go wrong? Then the shootings begin. And as they--and Virgil Flowers--are about to discover, that's only the beginning of their troubles. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Wickedly enjoyable . . . Sandford’s trademark sly humor shines throughout. Publishers Weekly (starred review)   Praise for Deep Freeze  
Along the way to the satisfying ending, Virgil displays the rough humor and rough justice that make him such an appealing character. Publishers Weekly
The ride, as always in a Sandford novel, surprises and delights....Add a gripping storyline, a generous helping of exquisitely conceived characters and laugh-out-loud humor that produce explosive guffaws, not muted chuckles, and you’re in for the usual late-night, don’t-even-think-of-stopping treat when Flowers hits town. Richmond Times-Dispatch
Holy smoke, Holy Ghost is a hot one! . . . The dialogue is sometimes biting and always witty, and the entire book is at once wicked and sublime. Booklist (starred review)
Another winner. Washington Post 
“Madly entertaining…the plots outlandish, the characters peculiar, and the best bits of dialogue are largely unprintable.” New York Times Book Review
John Sandford’s madly entertaining Virgil Flower mysteries are more fun than a greased-pig-wrestling contest. The plots outlandish; the characters peculiar; and the best bits of dialogue are largely unprintable. Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“Wickedly enjoyable…Sandford’s trademark sly humor shines throughout.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
