A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
It's always pleasant to revisit a series after skipping a few books to see if the appeal of the main characters still holds you in thrall and American mother and daughter duo P.J. Tracy certainly sustain the interest in this 7th instalment of their series. Mid-West cops Magozi and Rolseth, ably assisted by the sparky Monkeewrench tech analysts team headed by Grace McBride, are back on the case when two men are killed on opposite sides of the city. What is the connection and why does it appear that the murders are connected to the past? With genuine suspense and splendid plot architecture, the charm of this classic murder mystery lies in the interplay between the characters and its relentless pace and ingenuity. Detection, computer lore, conspiracies, a full menu of thrills for your delectation. Entertainment of the first order. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
