How is Trippton such a hotbed of crime? On the other hand I've just looked it up and it isn't a real place -- I never know with the Sandford books how much of it is actually real Minnesota, but it's compelling enough that I naturally assume that it is because Sandford's good. The usual Virgil blend of folksy charm hiding sharpness, although I don't like Johnson Johnson anywhere near as much as I think I'm supposed to, since he shows up a lot. The Barbie subplot was excellent. And I spotted the Ruger pest-control thing from a previous book right off, and it was nice that that was a plot point and not just "JS knows this thing and has randomly dropped it into two separate stories now".
