"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 southwestern Minnesota. 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"--Provided by publisher.

I've been riding with this here Monkeewrench gang since they left their hideout, oh wait, wrong genre. How about I've been a devotee of the Monkeewrench gang since they burst upon the literary scene in ...wait that is not quite right either. Okay final try. This is the eighth and very welcomed book in the Monkeewrench series. The Monkeewrench gang are four brilliant, damaged, and extremely tight computer mavens who have developed a software that is proving invaluable to law enforcement agencies.
There are two story lines, a search for a missing girl and a search for a serial killer, the first headed by the Monkeewrench Gang and the second headed by their Minneapolis homicide detective friends/lovers. These two hunts become intertwined to the surprise of everyone since one hunt is in the Minnesota cornfields and the other in the Twin Cities.
This might seem an odd complaint, but this book was mostly story. I would have liked to have spent more time with just the characters. A minor complaint as the stories are really intriguing. As are all of the Monkeewrench series, this is well-written and fast paced. The murders are not too graphic, but still disturbing. Especially when a bit unexpected. So close.....
This book can absolutely stand on its own, but just for the pleasure of meeting these characters I would suggest some of the earlier books.
I have to say Minnesota is producing some of my favorite mystery writers and settings, right after LA.
The Tracy team is spot on with their cartel information.
Oops, I had to go back and change the rating to five stars because one of the characters talks about making French toast by dipping it in melted vanilla ice cream.
There is a lion. Did I mention there is a lion living in the cornfields?
Thank you NetGalley for a chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

Grace, Annie, Harley & Roadrunner are the Monkeewrench crew. Four geniuses that help law enforcement and others solve crimes that are usually unsolvable. Their supercomputer the Beast really helps. Grace is pregnant and softening up to detective Magozzi.

There's a missing woman and a serial killer on the loose. The cases seem connected. With the Beast, Monkeewrench and the Detectives on the case it'll be sure to get solved. The description put into describing the lake house, Walts farm and everything else was written so well I could picture everything in my minds eyes. This is my second Monkeewrench book and I really look forward to more.
