Publisher Comments:

When the corpses of three police officers are discovered entombed in snowmen, Grace MacBride and her team of crime-busting computer jocks at the Monkeewrench firm are called in to assist. What they discover is a terrifying link among the victims that reaches beyond the badge and crosses the line between hard justice and stone cold vengeance.

Review:

"At the start of the exciting fourth Monkeewrench thriller (after 2005's Dead Run) from Tracy, the pseudonym of a mother-daughter writing team, two of the series' staples — Minneapolis police detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth — are on hand for a snowman-building contest their department is sponsoring in a local park. The contest turns into a double murder investigation after the frozen bodies of two policemen turn up inside two of the snowmen. Meanwhile, computer expert and ace crime solver Grace MacBride, who has a loving relationship with Magozzi, and the rest of her high-powered Monkeewrench gang are called in for help when a rookie female sheriff in rural Dundas County runs across another murdered cop inside another snowman. Grace and company discover trouble on their Web searches through arcane chat rooms — and also find themselves in danger as the bizarre but believable plot unwinds. A bestseller in the U.K., Tracy could well break out in the U.S. with this entertaining effort. 12-city author tour. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The explosive new thriller from the freshest, quirkiest voice on the mystery scene today finds the Monkeewrench team and its law-abiding counterparts on the Minneapolis P.D. on the case when dead policemen start showing up inside snowmen.

Synopsis:

Nothing's bleaker than Minneapolis during the winter, the season that, to some longtime residents, lasts eleven months of the year. So what better way to bring a little cheer to the good people of the city than by sponsoring an old-fashioned snowman-building contest? In a matter of hours, a local park is filled with the innocent laughter of children and their frosty creations. But things take an awful turn when the dead bodies of Minneapolis police officers are discovered inside two of the snowmen- sending the MPD and Detectives Magozzi and Rolseth on high alert. The next day, Iris Rikker, the newly minted sheriff of rural Dundas County, comes across another dead cop. Fearing that Rikker's inexperience will hamper the investigation, Magozzi and Rolseth head north-in a blizzard-to hunt for clues. As Grace MacBride and her crack computer jocks at Monkeewrench comb cyber-murder websites for connections, a terrifying link emerges, connecting the dead cops, Magozzi and Rolseth, and Monkeewrench-a link that must be broken, before it's too late.

About the Author

P.J. Tracy is the pseudonym of mother-daughter writing duo P.J. and Traci Lambrecht, winners of the Anthony, Barry, Gumshoe, and Minnesota Book Awards. Their first four novels, Monkeewrench, Live Bait, Dead Run, and Snow Blind have become national and international bestsellers.

P.J. Lambrecht is a college dropout with one of the largest collections of sweatpants in the world. She was raised in an upper-middle class family of very nice people, and turned to writing to escape the hardships of such a life. She had her first short story published in The Saturday Evening Post when Traci was eight, still mercifully oblivious to her mother’s plans to eventually trick her into joining the family business. She has been a moderately successfully free-lance writer ever since, although she has absolutely no qualifications for such a profession, except a penchant for lying.

Traci Lambrecht spent most of her childhood riding and showing horses. She graduated with a Russian Studies major from St. Olaf College in Northfield Minnesota, where she also studied voice. Her aspirations of becoming a spy were dashed when the Cold War ended, so she instead attempted briefly and unsuccessfully to import Eastern European folk art. She began writing to finance her annoying habits of travel and singing in rock bands, and much to her mother’s relief, finally realized that the written word was her true calling. They have been writing together ever since.
