If you have never read a P. J. Tracy novel starring the
gang, you have no idea what you are missing.
Monkeewrench is a secret group of computer geniuses that
have extra special skills to help where others fail. They
consist of the big teddy bear of a man named Harley
Davidson, Roadrunner, Annie, and Grace McBride who is sort
of the leader of the group. Each of these people have
superior skills and have a reason for being there.
Grace has been pursued by a ruthless killer for a long time
now and never goes anywhere without her gun. Annie is a sexy
full-figured woman who never lets any man near her forget
just how remarkable she is. Harley had a hard life until he
became a member of his Monkeewrench family and makes the
most of every moment. Roadrunner is one of the foremost
computer geniuses around in spite of his sort of shy
In THE SIXTH IDEA, homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and his
partner Gino love their work even though it is more often
than not, rather depressing. Yet they are quite good at
catching the bad guys, no matter who they may be. The
murders happening around them at the moment all seem to be
connected and a part of a super-secret government agency.
When bodies start turning up all over the city, it becomes
clear that a young woman named Lydia might be at the center
of everything. Not that she has done anything herself, but
she does seem to be, unknowingly, a part of what is happening.
As usual of the Monkeewrench series, there is plenty of
excitement, tension, and suspense in THE SIXTH IDEA as the
team works with the detectives to figure out this extreme
puzzle and stop the murders before they continue.
THE SIXTH IDEA seemed a bit shorter than other books in this
series but it certainly was just as excellent a book as the
ones preceding it. If you have become a fan of P. J. Tracy
and the Monkeewrench team, you must not miss this one!
While they do not have to be read in order to stay caught
up, I highly recommend that you start at the beginning book
and just work your way through them. You will not regret the
time spent getting caught up with these wonderful
characters. In fact, just get them all at once and block
some time to read. You are going to love them!
The Monkeewrench crew returns in a twisty, heart-stopping
The peaceful Christmas season in Minneapolis is shattered
when two friends, Chuck Spencer and Wally Luntz, scheduled
to meet in person for the first time, are murdered on the
same night, two hours and several miles apart, dramatically
concluding winter vacation for homicide detectives Leo
Magozzi and Gino Rolseth.
An hour north of Minneapolis, Lydia Ascher comes home to
find two dead men in her basement. When Leo and Gino
discover her connection to their current cases, they suspect
that she is a target, too. The same day, an elderly,
terminally ill man is kidnapped from his home, an
Alzheimer’s patient goes missing from his care facility, and
a baffling link among all the crimes emerges.
This series of inexplicable events sends the detectives
sixty years into the past to search for answers—and straight
to Grace MacBride’s Monkeewrench, a group of eccentric
computer geniuses who devote their time and resources to
helping the cops solve the unsolvable. What they find is an
unimaginable horror—a dormant Armageddon that might be
activated at any moment unless Grace and her partners Annie,
Roadrunner, and Harley Davidson, along with Leo and Gino,
can find a way to stop it.
