**ESCAPE CLAUSE**

*A Virgil Flowers Novel***BY JOHN SANDFORD**

**The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo.

Virgil’s relationship with his girlfriend Frankie has been getting kind of serious, but when Frankie’s sister Sparkle moves in for the summer, the situation gets a lot more complicated. For one thing, her research into migrant workers is about to bring her up against some very violent people who emphatically do
