Escape Clause (Virgil Flowers, book 9) by John SandfordAlthough Sandford has created other characters and series, none seems to have been as similar to the Davenport persona as Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agent Virgil Flowers, an independent albeit colorful lawman respected by those around him and fearless in the face of danger, the next generation as Davenport matures and is much more involved with the politics of his job. Both men are impressive, with unique personalities and the special skill set required by their jobs. Flowers, unmarried and fond of his off-duty hobbies, most recently keeps company with Frankie Noble and her brood of children, a spirited woman who gives Virgil a run for his money. While Frankie becomes peripherally involved with some trouble her visiting sister stirs up at a local canning factory perhaps exploiting immigrant labor, the real focus in Escape Clause involves the kidnapping of two protected Amur tigers from the Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley. The theft and elaborate escape plan involve a complicated plot to carry out a heinous scheme by local thieves, funding by a Chinese millionaire from California and his son and enforcement by a large family of Armenian brothers who arrive unexpectedly, threatening vengeance for perceived grievances against family members.
