    Haunted by a series of horrifying and violent episodes in their past, Grace McBride and the oddball crew of her software company, Monkeewrench, create a computer game where the killer is always caught, where the good guys always win. But their game becomes a nightmare when someone starts duplicating the fictional murders in real life, down to the last detail.

    It’s not bad, but I had some problems with it.

    It’s interesting enough to pass the time if you like murder mysteries. This book was recommended to me by a minister’s wife. There are a few religio..Show More »

    Minneapolis detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are bored - ever since they solved the Monkeewrench case, the Twin Cities have been in a murder-free dry spell, as people no longer seem interested in killing one another. But when elderly Morey Gilbert is found dead in the plant nursery he runs with his wife, Lily, the crime drought ends - not with a trickle, but with a torrent.

    Great Story - compelling and surprising

    Story line was unique and engaging. Characters fleshed out nicely. Second to last scene was too contrived but didn't take away from the rest of it

    Minneapolis detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are bored - ever since they solved the Monkeewrench case, the Twin Cities have been in a murder-free dry spell, as people no longer seem interested in killing one another. But when elderly Morey Gilbert is found dead in the plant nursery he runs with his wife, Lily, the crime drought ends - not with a trickle, but with a torrent. Who would kill Morey, a man without an enemy, a man who might as well have been a saint? Can Grace McBride's cold case-solving software program somehow find the missing link?

    Good Story!

    I really like the first book in the series. And the second is does not disappoint....on number three!

    When Minneapolis homicide cops Rolseth and Magozzi are called to a derelict stretch of the Mississippi River, they see a bride, facedown, dead in the water. And when the Monkeewrench crew – computer geeks who made a fortune on games, now assisting the cops with special anticrime software – are invited by the FBI to investigate a series of murder videos posted to the Web, it’s not long before the group discovers the frightening link between the unlucky bride and the latest, most horrific use of the Internet yet.

    Great mystery book

    Read the book, the narration is Not up to Par!

    The narrator was not what was needed with this story. All of the characters sounded the same, all high pitched, and not anything I could listen to for..Show More »
