Publisher's Summary

On a sailboat 10 miles off the Florida Keys, Grace MacBride, partner in Monkeewrench Software, thwarts an assassination attempt on retired FBI agent John Smith. A few hours later, in Minneapolis, a 15-year-old girl is found in a vacant lot, her throat slashed. Later that morning, two young men are found in their home a few blocks away, killed execution style. The next morning, three more men are found savagely murdered in the same neighborhood.
As Minneapolis homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth struggle to link the crime scenes, they discover that there have been similar murders in other cities across the United States. Piece by piece, evidence accumulates, pointing to a suspect whose identity shocks them to the core, uncovering a motive that puts the entire Midwest on high alert and Monkeewrench in the direct line of fire. Before it’s all over, Grace and her partners, Annie, Roadrunner, and Harley Davidson, find themselves in the middle of a shocking collision of violence on a remote northern Minnesota Indian reservation, fighting for their lives.

The fith and newest P. J. Tracy Monkeywrench Gang

Five American Indian teenage girls are being held in a Minneapolis house to be sold into the slave trade. The oldest one, Amy, gets away but is soon caught. She is murdered and her body is left in front of a house. The police knock on the doors of all neighbors and come up with the other four girls being held for ransom and they are released. But very soon, the police find themselves back to the neighborhood where two Samalian males are killed at the house where the girls were held, and another three are killed outside a house where a veteran from Iraq is found dead as well. In the meantime, Grace, who has been sailing in the Keys with FBI agent John Smith, wakes to find someone on their boat holding a knife to John’s throat. She rescues them both and then returns to Minneapolis. She believes that since John appears to be a target, that the whole Monkeywrench gang is targeted. They and the two police officers from Minneapolis all end up on an Indian reservation in northern Minnesota to escape from terrorists who have a plan in store for the whole country, and they’re all stuck there because of a major snowstorm. This book is back on track for the Tracys. It’s a pretty good thriller with the Monkeywrench gang front and center.

Expanding other characters

Would you try another book from P. J. Tracy and/or Buck Schirner?

yes, but not sure I'd buy another MonkeeWrench book because it appears from this book that the characters are played out. The narration is good, the story is just not very strong.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I didn't find a lot really spell binding about this book. To me it really wasn't much of a 'Monkeewrench' book, just had the characters mentioned - they really played no significant role, not even Grace. The plot was only so-so even tho the ending did have a slight twist. The relationship between Grace & John and Grace & Leo is hinted at a lot during the book but pitifully done in my opinion.


Which character – as performed by Buck Schirner – was your favorite?

Leo Magozzi & Gino Rolseth who were really the main characters in this book.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

no, but I don't go see many movies nor do I watch much TV. This would be more of a made for TV movie than a theater movie.
