By P. J. Tracy.
My Granddaughter Nicky highly recommended this book to me.I was a little leery of it as she tends to read things like Patricia Cornwall books with lots of gore in them. She isn't bothered by gore as her job exposes her to lots of it while I'm more the cosy mystery type reader. But this book is kind of between the two types. Some violence but not too much. :) And a right out of the blue ending. I love mysteries that keep you hanging until the very last page.
People are dying for the new computer game by the software company Monkeewrench. Literally. With Serial Killer Detective out in limited release, the real-life murders of a jogger and a young woman have already mimicked the first two scenarios in the game.
But Grace McBride and her eccentric Monkeewrench partners are caught in a vise. If they tell the Minneapolis police of the link between their game and the murders, they'll shine a spotlight on the past they thought they had erased-and the horror they thought they'd left behind. If they don't, eighteen more people will die...
