I had a few hours available and re-read the first Flowers novel (Dark of the Moon) this weekend.
It's a decent light hearted novel with some humor and sex thrown in. In it Flowers is introduced as a fisherman, hunter, photographer, music fan, military vet, and preacher's kid who has his own vision of God.
Flowers is primarily a bow hunter, but like most of my bow hunting friends he has his deer rifles still at home. He brings a sporting BAR 30-06 to the novel and uses it at the end.
I may re-read the others that I have, as time allows.
