5 Stars. An entertaining romp through northern Minnesota and, just a little, the Rainy River area of Ontario, Canada. As usual that F'n Flowers is front-row centre in the commotion. It's a page-turner! A body is found at the Veteran's Memorial in Stillwater with a lemon in its mouth. Both the middle-aged man, and his dog, had been shot in the forehead. Flowers is yanked out of bed during a visit with a former wife when Lucas Davenport calls telling him to get up there ASAP as there are striking similarities to a murder a few weeks ago. Connections to the Vietnam War become apparent and a strange incident surfaces about the theft of construction equipment followed by a horrible rape and slaughter. Has someone developed a hit list? Who are the others on such list? Along the way we bump into anti-war hero Meade Sinclair, now a local college professor, his Vietnamese daughter Mai, a few U.S. Homeland Security bullies, Sandy who is Virgil's go-to researcher, and a Governor who takes a huge political risk. Throw in two international territorial violations! Yes I liked it. "Heat ..." is one of the 4,000 or so titles in my "A Basic Mystery and Thriller Compilation" on Goodreads. (July 2019)

I love all of John Sanford's novels with Virgil Flowers as the lead investigator. This was another gripping story with twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your chair. Excellent!

Enjoyed the book, but probably the type of book I will forget I read in about a months time.

Since I didn't care for Dark Side of the Moon, it's no surprise I didn't like Heat Lightening. I should just stick with the "Prey" series. 2 of 10 stars
