Quite a story again. This time Virgil Flowers gets involved with not only some dudes who steal tigers from a Minnesota zoo but he is also trying to find out who beat up Frankie, his current girlfriend.
It all starts when Virgil and Frankie are swimming in the lake on Frankie’s place when Sparkle and her new boyfriend, Rev. Bill come along and pile into the pool with them. (As a side note Rev. Bill works 9 months as a priest and then 3 months as a bartender. Sandford is good at rigging up stuff like that). Turns out that Sparkel is in the area to do some digging into a local manufacturing plant that is hiring Mexicans in an uncanny and illegal way. She is going to do the investigating for her dissertation that is required for her degree.
