Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

At the start of the exciting sixth Monkeewrench novel from the pseudonymous Tracy (a mother-daughter writing team), Minneapolis computer entrepreneur Grace MacBride and FBI cybercrime expert John Smith, with whom she worked on a case in 2010's Shoot to Thrill, are sailing on his boat off the Florida Keys. When two men sneak aboard one night intent on killing John, Grace shoots them both dead and dumps their bodies over the side. Meanwhile, back in Minneapolis, a 15-year-old Native American girl, who's been missing from her reservation in northern Minnesota, turns up with her throat cut in a vacant lot, the apparent victim of a kidnapping ring made up of Somali immigrants who exploit Native American girls for the sex trade. The execution-style murders of first two, then three Somali men that follow prove to be part of a larger national pattern. The two main story lines converge in a gripping finale in the Minnesota woods. Agent: Ellen Geiger, Frances Goldin Literary Agency. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

From Library Journal:

If you haven't been introduced to the Monkeewrench gang of eccentric but brilliant software designers, you are missing out on complex characters, witty repartee, and exciting thrills. In the sixth installment (after Shoot to Thrill), trouble follows Monkeewrench partner Grace McBride on a sailing trip off the Florida Keys with ex-FBI agent John Smith when she thwarts an assassination attempt against him. Back in Minneapolis, homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth investigate a series of murders that lead to a remote Indian reservation. VERDICT Tracy, a mother-daughter writing team, skillfully incorporates a diverse array of elements-Native Americans, war veterans, a terrorist plot, and kidnapped children-while keeping the thrill level high and the writing sharp and frequently funny. Readers can't help but root for love-struck Magozzi and Grace to finally work it out. The twist of an ending leaves fans waiting for the next installment. For newcomers, this could be read as a stand-alone, but the history behind all the main characters really makes it a top-notch title for series followers. Readers who enjoy Harlan Coben or T. Jefferson Parker might want to give this series a try.-Marianne Fitzgerald, Severna Park H.S., MD (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
