About

Overview

A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
A Virgil Flowers Novel

Wheatfield, Minnesota: a metropolis of six hundred souls and change, 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 his precocious teenage buddy come up with a scheme to put Wheatfield on the map. Should something dramatic occur — say, that the apparition of the Virgin Mary miraculously appeared 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 go wrong? Then the shootings begin. And as they — and Virgil Flowers — are about to discover, that’s only the beginning of their troubles.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“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)

“Wickedly enjoyable . . . Sandford’s trademark sly humor shines throughout.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“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.”
