Publisher's Summary

Minneapolis detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth join Grace MacBride and Monkeewrench to uncover a dark and ugly conspiracy that reaches deep into the safety of homes in this latest electrifying thriller from New York Times best-selling author P. J. Tracy.

It's a bitter winter in Minnesota - too cold to kill. There hasn't been a murder for a month, but the lull quickly comes to an end for Detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth, when they're called to the gruesome homicide of Kelly Ramage. Found in a friend's vacant house, this was no random attack, and clues reveal that she was living a very dangerous secret life. 

Magozzi and Gino trace her steps back to an art gallery where she was last seen alive. The gallery seems like a dead end, but the art is disturbing and exploitative. It may very well be inspiring a sadistic killer, because in this instance, art doesn't imitate life, it imitates death. 

Tipped off about a year-old murder that is a mirror image of Kelly's crime scene, Gino and Magozzi enlist the aid of Grace MacBride and her eccentric, tech genius partners in Monkeewrench Software to help them decipher the digital trail that might connect the cases. 

As coincidences emerge, Magozzi, Gino, and the team have to work around the clock at breakneck pace to unravel a series of clues that form the framework of a larger, more sweeping, and insidious conspiracy than any of them could have imagined. Is Kelly the last person to die, or just the most recent? And is there any way to stop it?

Love the book not the reader

I like the book, monkee wrench series is always good. However the reader does pronounce words incorrectly and that can be a bit off putting.

Hated the narrator

Liked the story dislike the narrator. Ms Borges has no understanding of sarcasm or snark. Please go back to one of the other narrators.

Love the Monkeywrench Series-not this new narrator

Tried, really tried to get into the book but, as with the previous one, had to stop and purchase the kindle version. This narrator isn't able to pull off the many male characters who are featured in this series, most of the time it's tough to tell who is supposed to be speaking. There is so much wry humor in these books, wonderfully expressed by Buck Schirmer in his narration and it's all missing in these last two. These were offered at a reduced cost and I purchased them at the same time. Won't make that mistake again.

Good story- bad accents!

Great story, intriguing narrative, but the narration and the horrific attempts at a Minnesotan accent moved from comical to painful as the story pressed on. Still worth a listen!

Great story with many twists

But did not care for the funny voices the narrator used for Gino and Magozzi

Narration is not for everyone

The narrator’s voice isn’t unpleasant, but she overacts during the entire novel. It’s as if she is not taking in/understanding the story and only reading the words, all in a manner akin to an hours-long radio ad.

Meh

Pretty run of the mill, hackneyed storyline.
The narrator wasn’t very good. I have listened to thousands of books - started listening when they were books on tape. She sometimes did accents for some people. Of these, she would/could go in and out of “character”. Why did only 1 northern MN character have a stereotyped northern MN accent while others didn’t? For some of the male characters she didn’t even change from her female speaking voice. As you can see, I was distracted by the narrator. On a plus side, this is a good book if you need a mindless palate cleanser after reading/ listening to a book with a heavier subject manner or dark storyline.

Mispronounced words?!

It was really hard to focus on the story after hearing so many words mispronounced. She did a great job with the voices and characters but I hated the fact that she seemingly had never heard or read these words before.

Problems with narration

The book held my attention. I’d like to hear more by this author. The narrator was excellent. Unfortunately she mispronounced many words which interfered with my concentration.

Oh My…

First I’d like to say that the book itself is really good, but this narrator is subpar. As a Minnesotan, the faked Minnesotan accent about killed me, but she also mispronounced basic words and the names of common Minnesota location that would have been easy to look up. I rated the performance a 1/5 for these reasons. It took me out of the story too frequently!
