The first bomb goes off on the top floor of PyeMart''s headquarters. The second one explodes at the construction site itself. The blasts are meant to inflict maximum damage-and they do. Who''s behind the bombs, and how far will they go? It''s Virgil Flowers''s job to find out . . . before more people get killed.

The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

Annotation:
In this installment in the popular series featuring John Sanford's no-frills bachelor police detective, Virgil Flowers's only true love--fishing--plays a particularly central role. In fact, fishing, or trout, could be the motivation for the acts of small-town terrorism that are shaking Virgil's Minnesota town. The multinational chain PyeMart has started construction on its big-box store, but many locals--small business owners concerned about their livelihoods and environmentalists worried about the store's pollution contaminating the Butternut River and endangering the trout population--do not want the store built. Someone feels so strongly about it, that he or she decides to bomb the company's office building. When another explosion blasts the construction site, Virgil realizes that even if he, too, wants the fish to prevail, he must put a stop to this vigilante aggression.
