In PJ Tracy's Monkeewrench, the first installment in the Monkeewrench mystery series, we were introduced to an intriguing new police procedural. We were right in the heart of the matter when both sets of crimes had taken place in two states: Minnesota and Wisconsin. We were introduced to Grace and the Monkeewrench crew--all of them had secrets to hide and covered their tracks--when they developed a new computer game that caused tons of publicity--the bad kind. We can really feel the pain, when someone imitated life after their computer's graphic art. We followed their footsteps, heading right into danger, when no one was none the wiser between them. It was very fast paced and placed you into the heart of the suspense and danger. Your heart's racing and you're sweating, because you don't want to me in the killer's path too. This novel would keep you into suspense in both set states, and put you in Grace's shoes, when we learned her secrets and how she protected herself from evil... which might be next door.
This was a great new mystery debut. It tackled hard crime with a dose of humor. I really cared about Grace and her crew and became intrigued with the MPD, especially when she meets Leo Magozzi. You can instantly see a growing attraction between them. I loved the dual locations of Minnesota and Wisconsin for the settings for this novel's dark crimes. This would pull you in for a ride on every page that's filled with non-stop action, drama, intrigue and plenty of suspense.
