Overview

The thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You're about to get a visitor. It's an Israeli cop, and she's tailing a man who's smuggled out an extraordinary relic--a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon.
Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses?
He looks at the cop. She's not laughing. As it turns out, there are very bad men chasing the relic, and they don't care who's in the way or what they have to do to get it. Maybe Virgil should start praying.

Second time I have listened to this book over the past few years and it just keeps getting better. Virgil is my favourite Sandford character and I was not disappointed.

Great book! The Virgil Flowers Character is my favorite series by John Sandford. Eric Conger's performance is perfection, and is absolutely number one in bringing forth the unique and quirky characters in the Virgil Flowers series! Bravo! You all make an A1 team.
