Rough Country by John Sandford
Virgil Flowers, thrice-divorced, affable member of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is fishing in Minnesota lake country when he is called to investigate a homicide at a nearby resort for women.  A powerful adverting executive has been shot while canoeing.  There are many potential suspects including her employees, the people at the resort and locals (including a popular country singer).  Virgil discovers that this isn’t the first murder at the resort and suspects it may not be the last.  Stephen King has praised the book as “Rich, satisfying and frequently hilarious.”  New members are always welcome to the Mystery Club.  Contact Jocelyn Ozolins for more information:  jozolins@silibrary.org
