    Continuing with the work of P.J. Tracy, I ventured into the third novel of the Monkeewrench series, which spins things a little and provides the reader with a new approach. Sheriff Michael Halloran is keeping an eye on his rural Wisconsin county when three bodies are pulled from the wa...

    The third entry in the Monkeewrench series finds Monkeewrench founders Annie Belinsky and Grace MacBride on their way to a conference in Green Bay, along with Wisconsin deputy sheriff, Sharon Mueller. As they make their way north, they take several scenic detours to see interesting bar...

    This one is book 3 and I am loving the whole series so far! Grace is becoming a major character with some amazing survival skills and a definite attitude. Along with her two friends she demonstrates what genuinely strong women can do and at no point does she have to be rescued by a man...

    It was great to see all the characters for the first Monkeywrench novel back in this third instalment and to see the Monkeewrench women out on their own, out of their comfort zone and using all their survival skills. Grace, Annie and FBI agent Sharon Mueller set off to drive to Green B...

    I enjoyed this book at least as much as the previous books in the series. To me, it seems a bit less serious but still exciting with a race against time to save a lot of unknown people for an unknown fate by some unknown group. With a plot like that, you need some humor to hide the fac...

    This was not a great book, but it wasn?t terrible either. Sometimes a book just needs to have realistic scenarios to satisfy me, and this book had me rolling my eyes too often. There were also too many long descriptive passages unrelated to the story that I began to skip over. I c...

    **4.5 stars** This book was incredible. The story brings back all the characters from the first book in the series: the Monkeewrench crew, Leo & Gino from the Minneapolis Police Dept. plus the three Wisconsin law enforcement officers: Sharon, Halloran and Bonar. The plot is a...

    This is the third book in P.J. Tracy's wonderful "Monkeewrench" series. I loved it just as much as the first two. All the quirky characters, the detectives and the Monkeewrench crew, are back, this time confronting a mysterious event perpetrated by a sinister paramilitary group that is...

    Grace, Annie and Sharon are on their way to assist a law enforcement group in Green Bay with the profiling and tracking of a suspected serial killer when their car breaks down in a remote town in Wisconsin. What happens when they slog to the town to find a mechanic is utterly chilling....

    Wish we could have taken a little more time on plot with this one, as we had alot of running around in the Wisconsin forest. ...

    I was so excited to finally get to this third book because the synopsis stated that they were headed to Green Bay, which I hoped meant that Sharon, Mike and Bonar would be in this one. And to my delight they were. That's where my delight ends. I found it unrealistic that a civilian wou...

    This one had me yelling at my windsheild. Repeatedly. Two strong books and then....lord knows what happened. Maybe the authors read W.K. Krueger's Mercy Falls and needed something outlandish too. I dunno. I'll try and do this without major spoilers: Govt conspiracy/major cover u...

    This is my favorite of the Monkeewrench novels by P. J. Tracy. The first book introduced the series' classic character sets: urban cops, rural cops, and computer nerds. Adding the FBI, some home-grown terrorists, and sundry other state and federal agencies to the mix, "Dead Run" deploy...

    This was horrible! It started off fine enough then there were far too many odd ball plot twists and an inordinate amount of time was spent crawling through the dark in the mud. I tried to skim ahead to see "who dunnit" and couldn't dig the answer out of this mess of a book. I'll trudge...

    I was given this book to read by a family member and I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to read it. It is part of a series, after all, and I felt as though I shouldn?t have been jumping in part way through. In the end, though, I decided to give it a go. By the end of the f...

    This instalment of the Monkeewrench series was a real page turner and had my heart racing at times! The Monkeewrench gang were right in the thick of things which I think made it slightly better than book 2. My only complaint would be that there weren't as many one liners from Gino. ...

    If I look at it logically outside the story, the Monkeewrench characters are probably pretty unrealistic. But when I'm in the story, I just love them and don't care how likely it is they really exist. The authors do a great job suspending disbelief even with these unlikely folks. ...

    I enjoy the PJ Tracy series, but didn't like this book as much. The tension was there, and pages were turning, but I couldn't appreciate the plot. ...

    As a devoted new fan to the series, I picked up this book almost as soon as I finished the first one. This book takes a bit of a detour from the previously plausible last 2 books & goes for a bit of an outlandish spin. It doesn't fit well with the rest of the series & to be hon...

    There are a lot of things to like about this series, In my opinion, a successful series has characters that grow on you with each novel as well as a good plot. This series succeeds on both fronts. Sometimes, you can feel an author's fatigue with a group of characters after the first bo...

    The third entry in the Monkeewrench series finds Monkeewrench founders Annie Belinsky and Grace MacBride on their way to a conference in Green Bay, along with Wisconsin deputy sheriff, Sharon Mueller. As they make their way north, they take several scenic detours to see interesting bar...

    This one is book 3 and I am loving the whole series so far! Grace is becoming a major character with some amazing survival skills and a definite attitude. Along with her two friends she demonstrates what genuinely strong women can do and at no point does she have to be rescued by a man...

    I enjoyed this book at least as much as the previous books in the series. To me, it seems a bit less serious but still exciting with a race against time to save a lot of unknown people for an unknown fate by some unknown group. With a plot like that, you need some humor to hide the fac...

    I was given this book to read by a family member and I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to read it. It is part of a series, after all, and I felt as though I shouldn?t have been jumping in part way through. In the end, though, I decided to give it a go. By the end of the f...

    This instalment of the Monkeewrench series was a real page turner and had my heart racing at times! The Monkeewrench gang were right in the thick of things which I think made it slightly better than book 2. My only complaint would be that there weren't as many one liners from Gino. ...

    If I look at it logically outside the story, the Monkeewrench characters are probably pretty unrealistic. But when I'm in the story, I just love them and don't care how likely it is they really exist. The authors do a great job suspending disbelief even with these unlikely folks. ...

    I read the first two books in this series years ago and really enjoyed them. I don't know if it's because my tastes have changed or it was just this book but, gah, this book was not good for me. Tedious and boring. I couldn't wait for it to be over. I don't even have the energy to writ...

    Thriller/suspense. A milk truck overturns and wipes out an entire (very small) town, three bodies are found in an abandoned quarry, three women fall off the radar on a routine trip to Green Bay. It is not at all clear in the beginning how all this connects, but the story line moves at ...

    I deliberated long and hard about whether to read this - only because I was concerned that it might be part of a series, which always makes sense. There was no information on the sleeve notes to suggest it was so i dived in. However, it turns out that it was number three in a series...

    As a devoted new fan to the series, I picked up this book almost as soon as I finished the first one. This book takes a bit of a detour from the previously plausible last 2 books & goes for a bit of an outlandish spin. It doesn't fit well with the rest of the series & to be hon...

    I loved Monkeewrenchand recommended it to many people, as the plot was strong, characters well defined and a good mystery. The follow up Live Baitwas a great follow up to the debut novel and another good mystery. Well Dead run, lost it all, there is no great mystery and the team is div...

    Thriller/suspense. A milk truck overturns and wipes out an entire (very small) town, three bodies are found in an abandoned quarry, three women fall off the radar on a routine trip to Green Bay. It is not at all clear in the beginning how all this connects, but the story line moves at ...

    Continuing with the work of P.J. Tracy, I ventured into the third novel of the Monkeewrench series, which spins things a little and provides the reader with a new approach. Sheriff Michael Halloran is keeping an eye on his rural Wisconsin county when three bodies are pulled from the wa...

    The third entry in the Monkeewrench series finds Monkeewrench founders Annie Belinsky and Grace MacBride on their way to a conference in Green Bay, along with Wisconsin deputy sheriff, Sharon Mueller. As they make their way north, they take several scenic detours to see interesting bar...

    This one is book 3 and I am loving the whole series so far! Grace is becoming a major character with some amazing survival skills and a definite attitude. Along with her two friends she demonstrates what genuinely strong women can do and at no point does she have to be rescued by a man...

    I enjoyed this book at least as much as the previous books in the series. To me, it seems a bit less serious but still exciting with a race against time to save a lot of unknown people for an unknown fate by some unknown group. With a plot like that, you need some humor to hide the fac...

    **4.5 stars** This book was incredible. The story brings back all the characters from the first book in the series: the Monkeewrench crew, Leo & Gino from the Minneapolis Police Dept. plus the three Wisconsin law enforcement officers: Sharon, Halloran and Bonar. The plot is a...

    This is the third book in P.J. Tracy's wonderful "Monkeewrench" series. I loved it just as much as the first two. All the quirky characters, the detectives and the Monkeewrench crew, are back, this time confronting a mysterious event perpetrated by a sinister paramilitary group that is...

    This was horrible! It started off fine enough then there were far too many odd ball plot twists and an inordinate amount of time was spent crawling through the dark in the mud. I tried to skim ahead to see "who dunnit" and couldn't dig the answer out of this mess of a book. I'll trudge...

    I was given this book to read by a family member and I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to read it. It is part of a series, after all, and I felt as though I shouldn?t have been jumping in part way through. In the end, though, I decided to give it a go. By the end of the f...

    This instalment of the Monkeewrench series was a real page turner and had my heart racing at times! The Monkeewrench gang were right in the thick of things which I think made it slightly better than book 2. My only complaint would be that there weren't as many one liners from Gino. ...

    If I look at it logically outside the story, the Monkeewrench characters are probably pretty unrealistic. But when I'm in the story, I just love them and don't care how likely it is they really exist. The authors do a great job suspending disbelief even with these unlikely folks. ...

    As a devoted new fan to the series, I picked up this book almost as soon as I finished the first one. This book takes a bit of a detour from the previously plausible last 2 books & goes for a bit of an outlandish spin. It doesn't fit well with the rest of the series & to be hon...

    I loved Monkeewrenchand recommended it to many people, as the plot was strong, characters well defined and a good mystery. The follow up Live Baitwas a great follow up to the debut novel and another good mystery. Well Dead run, lost it all, there is no great mystery and the team is div...

    There are a lot of things to like about this series, In my opinion, a successful series has characters that grow on you with each novel as well as a good plot. This series succeeds on both fronts. Sometimes, you can feel an author's fatigue with a group of characters after the first bo...

    I can't say this book wins points for realism, but that didn't stop it from being a darned satisfying read. From the moment when things go wrong for the bad guys in chapter 1 until the very end, I was pretty hooked. I just had to know what was going on in Four Corners and what grand sc...

    Continuing with the work of P.J. Tracy, I ventured into the third novel of the Monkeewrench series, which spins things a little and provides the reader with a new approach. Sheriff Michael Halloran is keeping an eye on his rural Wisconsin county when three bodies are pulled from the wa...

    The third entry in the Monkeewrench series finds Monkeewrench founders Annie Belinsky and Grace MacBride on their way to a conference in Green Bay, along with Wisconsin deputy sheriff, Sharon Mueller. As they make their way north, they take several scenic detours to see interesting bar...

    This one is book 3 and I am loving the whole series so far! Grace is becoming a major character with some amazing survival skills and a definite attitude. Along with her two friends she demonstrates what genuinely strong women can do and at no point does she have to be rescued by a man...

    It was great to see all the characters for the first Monkeywrench novel back in this third instalment and to see the Monkeewrench women out on their own, out of their comfort zone and using all their survival skills. Grace, Annie and FBI agent Sharon Mueller set off to drive to Green B...

    I enjoyed this book at least as much as the previous books in the series. To me, it seems a bit less serious but still exciting with a race against time to save a lot of unknown people for an unknown fate by some unknown group. With a plot like that, you need some humor to hide the fac...

    This was not a great book, but it wasn?t terrible either. Sometimes a book just needs to have realistic scenarios to satisfy me, and this book had me rolling my eyes too often. There were also too many long descriptive passages unrelated to the story that I began to skip over. I c...

    **4.5 stars** This book was incredible. The story brings back all the characters from the first book in the series: the Monkeewrench crew, Leo & Gino from the Minneapolis Police Dept. plus the three Wisconsin law enforcement officers: Sharon, Halloran and Bonar. The plot is a...

    This is the third book in P.J. Tracy's wonderful "Monkeewrench" series. I loved it just as much as the first two. All the quirky characters, the detectives and the Monkeewrench crew, are back, this time confronting a mysterious event perpetrated by a sinister paramilitary group that is...

    Grace, Annie and Sharon are on their way to assist a law enforcement group in Green Bay with the profiling and tracking of a suspected serial killer when their car breaks down in a remote town in Wisconsin. What happens when they slog to the town to find a mechanic is utterly chilling....

    Wish we could have taken a little more time on plot with this one, as we had alot of running around in the Wisconsin forest. ...

    I was so excited to finally get to this third book because the synopsis stated that they were headed to Green Bay, which I hoped meant that Sharon, Mike and Bonar would be in this one. And to my delight they were. That's where my delight ends. I found it unrealistic that a civilian wou...

    This is my favorite of the Monkeewrench novels by P. J. Tracy. The first book introduced the series' classic character sets: urban cops, rural cops, and computer nerds. Adding the FBI, some home-grown terrorists, and sundry other state and federal agencies to the mix, "Dead Run" deploy...

    This was horrible! It started off fine enough then there were far too many odd ball plot twists and an inordinate amount of time was spent crawling through the dark in the mud. I tried to skim ahead to see "who dunnit" and couldn't dig the answer out of this mess of a book. I'll trudge...

    I was given this book to read by a family member and I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to read it. It is part of a series, after all, and I felt as though I shouldn?t have been jumping in part way through. In the end, though, I decided to give it a go. By the end of the f...

    This instalment of the Monkeewrench series was a real page turner and had my heart racing at times! The Monkeewrench gang were right in the thick of things which I think made it slightly better than book 2. My only complaint would be that there weren't as many one liners from Gino. ...

    If I look at it logically outside the story, the Monkeewrench characters are probably pretty unrealistic. But when I'm in the story, I just love them and don't care how likely it is they really exist. The authors do a great job suspending disbelief even with these unlikely folks. ...

    I enjoy the PJ Tracy series, but didn't like this book as much. The tension was there, and pages were turning, but I couldn't appreciate the plot. ...

    I read the first two books in this series years ago and really enjoyed them. I don't know if it's because my tastes have changed or it was just this book but, gah, this book was not good for me. Tedious and boring. I couldn't wait for it to be over. I don't even have the energy to writ...
