Grace, Annie, Harley and Roadrunner make up a unique family
of computer geeks who formed Monkeewrench and work closely
with Minneapolis homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino
Rolseth, as they utilize their special software and hacking
skills to solve crimes. This time, detectives Magozzi and
Rolseth are dealing with a serial killer who leaves playing
cards on his victims' bodies. In the meantime, the
Monkeewrench crew has decided to assist a small-town
sheriff in locating a young woman who disappeared without a
trace. Monkeewrench packs up their super fancy, technically
outfitted RV and head to the country.
As each search proceeds, it soon becomes apparent that the
serial killer case and the missing girl could be entwined.
Trying to figure out the connection when the two
investigations are situated so far apart becomes a real
test of analytical skills from everyone involved. As a
tornado starts heading toward the rural area where
Monkeewrench is located, the shocking facts needed to solve th
the unusual murder case are uncovered. No one anticipated
such a terrible outcome from their investigations.
As the 8th installment in P.J. Tracy's exciting
series, NOTHING STAYS BURIED is a cleverly
devised thriller with plenty of exhilarating twists and
turns. She's an expert at developing intelligent, if
somewhat quirky, characters in suspenseful situations as
she increases the tension to a fever pitch. I've enjoyed
the realistic growth of the relationships throughout this
series, especially Magozzi and Grace, as well as the
compelling and fast-paced plotting of each book. This is a
remarkable suspense series, and I hope it will continue
following the death of one of the collaborative authors.
The Monkeewrench crew returns to face the city of
Minneapolis’s worst nightmare—a rampant serial killer on the
loose—in the electrifying new thriller.
When Minneapolis homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino
Rolseth are called to a crime scene in a heavily wooded city
park, everything about the setting is all too familiar. And
when they discover a playing card on the victim's body,
their worst fears are confirmed—there’s a serial killer
operating in the city for the first time in years.
Across town, Grace MacBride and her unconventional partners
at Monkeewrench Software find themselves at both personal
and career crossroads. Weary of the darker side of their
computer work for law enforcement, they agree to take on a
private missing-persons case in a small farming community in
As the violence accelerates in Minneapolis, Magozzi and Gino
soon realize their killer is planning to complete the deck,
and they enlist Monkeewrench to help stop the rampage. As a
baffling tangle of evidence accumulates, the cops and
Monkeewrench make the unlikely connections among a farmer’s
missing daughter, a serial killer, and a decades-old
stabbing that brings them face-to-face with pure evil.
