Minneapolis detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are bored—ever since they solved the Monkeewrench case, the Twin Cities have been in a murder-free dry spell, as people no longer seem interested in killing one another. But when elderly Morey Gilbert is found dead in the plant nursery he runs with his wife, Lily, the crime drought ends—not with a trickle, but with a torrent. Who would kill Morey, a man without an enemy, a man who might as well have been a saint? His tiny, cranky little wife is no help, and may even be a suspect; his estranged son, Jack, an infamous ambulance-chasing lawyer, has his own enemies; and his son-in-law, former cop Marty Pullman, is so depressed over his wife's death a year earlier he's ready to kill himself, but not Morey. The number of victims—all elderly—grows, and the city is fearful once again. Can Grace McBride's cold case-solving software program somehow find the missing link? Download and start listening now!

    " Another good one from PJ Tracy. Really like the character development and the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelsey | 2/17/2014

    " very good book! a light read that keeps you going... awesome for a summer reading list! :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tm Buffalo | 2/12/2014

    " Reading the second in the series . Really like the first one except the ending which was stupid but loved the characters so I'm reading this. It's funny and keeping my interest although cast of characters is a bit too big for my taste but so far so good , hope ending doesn't suck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/3/2014

    " I liked the plot of this book because I thought it was quite unique without falling into stereotypes. Also it was refreshing to have older victims rather than the norm of young females! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Magda | 2/1/2014

    " Rather a fun murder mystery, but the place-characters seemed a bit off. Also, there was way too much gratuitous cursing. And I had trouble keeping the detective characters straight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/30/2014

    " I really think this one of the series is my favorite. How unexpected to bring holocaust survivors into the mix? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 1/26/2014

    " Good underlying themes to delve into if you so wish but also an excellent storyline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/18/2014

    " Very Good; Continuing characters:MacBride and Magozzi; Jews who survived death camps are being murdered; and Magozzi with the help of MacBride's computer genius, tries to figure out how they're related "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie Liechty | 1/17/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trudy | 12/26/2013

    " The second in the Monkeewrench series by P.J. Tracy. Equally as good as the first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary G. | 12/18/2013

    " Wow. What a great sequel to Monkeewench. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 12/15/2013

    " I enjoyed their first in the Monkeywrench series so tried number 2. Fun to read a mystery set in a familiar location and easy, mystery reading. I wouldn't call this great writing but better than your average who done it. Good enough to go back for another one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 11/21/2013

    " Very good.... Makes you think! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 11/17/2013

    " All of the Monkeewrench novels are confusing, but if you keep reading, it's worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kat | 5/20/2013

    " I enjoyed this one as much as the first. It was well read and face paced. The ending was a surprise and I am excited to listen to the rest of the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ravenonthewing | 2/14/2013

    " Not as good as Monkeewrench, but it was fun to get the Minnesota local color. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/11/2013

    " Another detective mystery featuring our 2 favorite Minnesotan policemen. A good read from this mother/daughter writing duo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 1/13/2013

    " I didn't see that ending coming! I enjoyed this book, but I wish that the Monkeewrench people were a little more involved in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CLM | 8/21/2012

    " I enjoyed this at times humorous mystery with Minnesota setting but not enough to go back to find the first book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 7/31/2012

    " the second book in the monkeewrench series was a bit of a disappointment. It was good, but extremely slow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle Bain | 5/10/2012

    " First P.J. Tracy novel I read and it got me hooked. Unbelievable real dialogue between the characters. great setting, and a well developed plot. A must read for the mystery fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 3/7/2012

    " I loved this book. I have now read the first two books in the "Monkeewrench" series and loved both of them. P. J. Tracy is actually a terrific mother/daughter writing team. I highly recommend these books, but it is probably best to start with the first one, Monkeewrench. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DeeAnn | 2/14/2012

    " Really good story that twists so you don't guess the ending until the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 2/4/2012

    " #2 in the Monkeewrench series, which I'm enjoying very much. I love the way the authors have several mysteries going at once and they all tie together in the end. A very fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 11/1/2011

    " Well done - twisty, but not enough Monkeewrench as I had hoped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 10/21/2011

    " I like this series...good characters, interesting plots. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 8/9/2011

    " Not as good as I'd hoped - I seem to recall being much fonder of Monkeewrench. The veteran cops just seem a little slow on the uptake given the numerous not-very-veiled references to the link between the homicides. Skippable, I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 5/27/2011

    " The second installment of the Monkeewrench gang. This one has nazi assasinations...enough said. Not as good as the !st book, but definitely a page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 12/18/2010

    " This is another thriller by the mother/daughter team who wrote Monkeewrench. They know how to tell a tale, and they like twists and turns. I plan to read more books by them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 12/11/2010

    " Good underlying themes to delve into if you so wish but also an excellent storyline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 11/21/2010

    " Quick read, takes place in Minneapolis, connection to the Auschwitz. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 11/13/2010

    " the second book in the monkeewrench series was a bit of a disappointment. It was good, but extremely slow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Magda | 11/2/2010

    " Rather a fun murder mystery, but the place-characters seemed a bit off. Also, there was way too much gratuitous cursing. And I had trouble keeping the detective characters straight. "

    " Wow. What a great sequel to Monkeewench. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kriscrowe | 10/13/2010

    " After reading the fifth Monkeewrench book I went back towards the beginning. This was a good read, an interesting mystery with some unexpected twists and it takes place in Minneapolis with some spill over into Wisconsin. I just picked up the next one in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 10/4/2010

    " My second favorite book by this author. An excellent read and an excellent Audiobook listen, narrated by Buck Shirner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 8/19/2010

    " Second of the series. What I like about these books is that one minute I am laughing out loud, another minute I am on the edge of my seat, and then towards the end I get teary -- perfect fiction! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 8/17/2010

    " Live Bait by P.J Tracy was a page turner. Monkeewrench gang was in it, but not major players. The detectives were the main players and they shined in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 7/12/2010

    " Fun, quick read!
    Good characters, I really like the detectives. Enough drama and realistic scenarios to be interesting with the surprise twist on 'who-done'it'.
    Enjoy "
