The mother-daughter team of P.J. Tracy brings us the latest installment of Grace MacBride and Monkeewrench Software.
Grace accepts a friends offer to go sailing but wakes up to hear someone sneaking onto the boat. When she reaches for her gun and goes on deck, one of the invaders has a knife and is about to kill her friend, retired FBI agent, John Smith. Grace shoots the two men and then she and John discover a photo of John in their possession. They realize this wasn't robbery but assassination.
Looking for answers, John admits that he was using the Monkeewrench software to monitor terrorist communications.
In a sup-plot, five Native American girls are kidnapped by a gang of Somalis with the purpose of selling them into the sex slave market. One of the girls tries escaping and they slit her throat.
There is quite a bit of patriotism in this story as the info John found is put out on the web and people take it on themselves to take action against some of the terrorists.
This is a successful thriller and the characters are unique and memorable. I did find the conclusion a bit too convenient but overall enjoyed this exciting story.
Since this story takes place in various locations in Minnesota, it would be helpful if the reader had a map of the state so they could visualize where the action is taking place. In addition it would give a time space in getting from one part of the action to another.
