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.
