ARE YOU LISTENING? HOLY GHOST BY JOHN SANDFORD

HOLY GHOST
READ BY ERIC CONGER
BY JOHN SANDFORD 
"Virgil Flowers investigates a miracle–and a murder–in the wickedly entertaining new thriller from the master of “pure reading pleasure” (Booklist)
ABOUT THE AUDIOBOOK:
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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
John Sandford is the pseudonym for the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp. He is the author of the Prey novels, the Kidd novels, the Virgil Flowers novels, and six other books, including three YA novels co-authored with his wife Michele Cook.

PRAISE FOR HOLY GHOST:
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

“Another winner.”–Washington Post 

“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)

“Wickedly enjoyable . . . Sandford’s trademark sly humor shines throughout.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

He is so prolific! I try to keep up with a home state series, but to no avail! Listening may be a good way to do that.
Welcome back! ☺

Welcome back! Hope you are feeling better.
I love a good Minnesota mystery---and can think of many small towns close to here that are "moribund" in this long, long winter.

I've read some of the Prey books but not the Virgil Flowers books. This sounds interesting.
