Book Review: Off The Grid - P.J. Tracy

Off the Grid (Monkeewrench #6)
On a sailboat ten miles off the Florida coast, Grace MacBride, partner in Monkeewrench Software, thwarts an assassination attempt on retired FBI agent John Smith. A few hours later, in Minneapolis, a fifteen-year-old girl is discovered in a vacant lot, her throat slashed. Later that day, two young men are found in their home a few blocks away, killed execution-style. The next morning, the dead bodies of three more men turn up, savagely murdered in the same neighborhood.

As Minneapolis homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth struggle to link the three crimes, they learn that there have been similar murders in other cities around the United States. Piece by piece, evidence accumulates, pointing to a suspect that shocks them to the core, uncovering a motive that puts the entire Midwest on high alert and Monkeewrench in the direct line of fire. Before it's all over, Grace and her partners, Annie, Roadrunner, and Harley Davidson, find themselves in the middle of a shocking collision of violence on a remote northern Minnesota reservation, fighting for their lives. 

3/5 stars (liked it)
I started reading this series by the suggestion of a family member plus it takes place in Minnesota, which is where I live.  This books starts off pretty much where the last one left off.  Grace is on a boat with John and Leo is in Minneapolis carrying on with his life.  Grace and Leo need to sit down and have a serious conversation to figure out what their relationship really is.  Leo is jealous of John and thinks they're sleeping together.  While Grace views John as a good friend and just needed a change.  I had guess a lot of the things that would connect to each other but that epilogue sure threw me for a loop.  I hope another book gets written soon.
