The mother/daughter team writing as Tracy bring back their Monkeewrench team for a baffling new set of murders. The novels are truly ensemble pieces with various characters providing richness and real warmth to a twisted and disturbing tale. The dark side of both human nature and the Web are fodder for this nightmarish thriller. Here's hoping we don't have to wait so long for the next chapter in this unforgettable series!

When the FBI realizes several online videos contain real murders, they send agent John Smith to work with the Monkeewrench team: Grace, Annie, Harley and Roadrunner. Homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth get involved as well when one of their cases turns up on the Web. As the Monkee-wrench team follows the cyber trail, Leo and Gino address the physical clues. Motive remains a mystery, but could it be as horrifyingly simple as a quest for fame? (PUTNAM, May, 320 pp., $24.95)

Reader review for Shoot to Thrill

Submitted by kdrake (not verified) on June 25, 2010 - 5:13pm.

I love the Monkeewrench books. I picked up the first book simply because of the title and have been hooked ever since. Shoot to Thrill doesn't disappoint. Minneapolis Detective Magozzi and Rolseth, along with the Monkeewrench crew and newcomer FBI Agent John Smith (yes, that's his real name), quickly learn that while the Internet is a useful tool and an indispensable part of our lives, it has also become an anonymous social gathering point for all of the deviants of the world. Someone is randomly killing people and posting video footage of their handiwork on the web. The hits spread like a virus, and everyone fears that it may turn watchers into doers before they can even find a thread to start pulling. Full of twists and turns, this one may keep you guessing.
