Overview

Virgil Flowers investigates a miracle--and a murder--in the wickedly entertaining new thriller from the master of "pure reading pleasure" (Booklist)

Pinion, Minnesota: a metropolis of all of seven hundred souls, 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 a buddy come up with a scheme to put Pinion on the map. They'd heard of a place where a floating image of the Virgin Mary had turned the whole town into a shrine, attracting thousands of pilgrims. And all those pilgrims needed food, shelter, all kinds of crazy things, right? They'd all get rich! What could go wrong?

When the dead body shows up, they find out, and that's only the beginning of their troubles--and Virgil Flowers'--as they are all about to discover all too soon.

A mayor's half-baked scheme to revive a floundering Minnesota community by turning it into a religious shrine is thrown into chaos by the discovery of a body. By the #1 New York Times best-selling author of Twisted Prey.

"Wheatfield, Minnesota, is a metropolis of all six hundred souls and change for which the word "moribund" might have been coined. 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, an apparition of the Virgin Mary miraculously appearing 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 possibly go wrong? Then the shootings begin. And as they-and Virgil Flowers-are about to discover, that's only the beginning of their troubles ..."--Front jacket flap.

When the mayor of Pinion, Minnesota tries to turn his small town into a religious shrine, his plan is interrupted by the discovery of a dead body.
