Bad Blood by John Sandford
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book is some seriously sick shit! EWWWWWW
Bobby Tripp is a high school football star. While working at a grain elevator in rural Minnesota he kills a local farmer. There seems to be no good explanation for it but he's arrested. The next morning he is found dead in his cell. Pretty quickly it's determined that he hasn't committed suicide like it's been made to seem. The deputy on duty is suspected and the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers from the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. When the sheriff and Virgil get to the deputy's house, they find him dead on the couch. This one's a murder set up to look like a suicide also. Two of the dead men as well as a teenage torture/murder victim are associated with the World of Spirit church. The investigation turns up some pretty bad stuff with this church.
Reading about the abuse of the children and some of the women in this church is almost too much to read. These are the kinds of monsters that scare me.
