Virgil Flowers investigates a miracle ... and a murder ... in the wickedly entertaining new thriller from the master of pulse-pounding thrillers. Wheatfield, Minnesota: a huge city of all of seven hundred folks who define the phrase 'small town'. Nothing has ever happened in Wheatfield and nothing ever will ... until the mayor (of sorts - campaign promise: "I'll Do What I Can") comes up with a scheme to put Wheatfield on the map. He's heard of a place where a floating image of the Virgin Mary turned the whole town into a shrine, attracting thousands of curious people and making the townsfolk rich overnight. Why not stage a prank in Wheatfield and do the same? No one gets hurt and everyone gets rich. What could go wrong? And then a dead body shows up. It turns out that lots can go wrong with a get-rich-quick scheme like this one ... and lots will. It'll take everything Virgil Flowers has to put things to right - before someone else dies.
