In this motherdaughter writing team's second novel, a followup to their successful debut, Monkeewrench, Minneapolis police detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are on the case when a man is run over by a train after being tied to the tracks and three Holocaust survivors are killed.

As the quirky detectives look for a link between the crimes, they come across some disturbing coincidences that place the Holocaust survivors in the vicinity of some unsolved crimes around the globe.

Helped by computer guru Grace Mac-Bride, Leo and Gino follow the clues in this suspense-laden mystery. An action-packed read, with nary a dull moment, it will keep readers guessing. (May, 336 pp., $23.95)
