ESCAPE CLAUSE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
ESCAPE CLAUSE
A Virgil Flowers Novel
BY JOHN SANDFORD
  
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large, and very rare, Amur tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are worried sick that they’ve been stolen for their body parts. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes those parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get what they need. Some of them are a great deal more extreme than others—as Virgil is about to find out.

Then there’s the homefront. 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 not want to be researched. For another…she thinks Virgil’s kind of cute.

     “You mess around with Sparkle,” Frankie told Virgil, “you could get yourself stabbed.”
     “She carries a knife?”
     “No, but I do.” 


Forget a storm—this one’s a tornado.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
John Sandford is the pseudonym for the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp. He is the author of over twenty Prey novels; eight Virgil Flowers novels, and seven other books, including the young adult novels Uncaged and Outrage, written with Michele Cook. He lives in New Mexico.

SOME OTHER BOOKS BY JOHN SANDFORD:
              

              

              
   
PRAISE FOR THE VIRGIL FLOWERS SERIES:
“Another brainy thriller from a prolific author, Deadline fulfills readers’ expectations of Sandford’s fiction: tense, smart and character-driven.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Sandford’s best Flowers book to date. This book is the most fun I have had reading in a long time.”
—The Huffington Post

“The biggest joys of this series are Flowers himself (his boss is Lucas Davenport from Sandford’s Prey novels), the case of eccentric supporting characters, and the humorous dialogue.”
—Shelf Awareness

“Pure reading pleasure.”
—Booklist

“Sandford keeps one last surprise up his sleeve, and it’s a doozy. Exhilaratingly professional work by both Virgil and his creator.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Rich characters [and] the descriptions of small-town life, politics and corruption and the concurrent trails of action make for a fast and entertaining read.”
—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I like the praise that calls it a "brainy thriller". The story sounds like it could get complicated, that is a good thing.

From his website, I checked the reviews on Amazon.com, there are already a lot reviews for this book and most of them are raves. Also checked his Facebook page. He will be talking about this book in Dallas at 3:00 p.m. Wish that I could be there!
