It held my interest immediately. ( )

A road trip goes horribly wrong when Grace, Annie and Deputy Sharon Mueller leave from the Cities for Green Bay to use Monkeewrench's new computer program to help solve a troubling crime. But when car trouble leaves them stranded, a walk to the nearest town leaves all sorts of questions.

Four Corners is suspiciously silent. There is no one there and the town looks scrubbed clean. With all the phone lines cut and in a dead spot in cellphone coverage in very rural Wisconsin, the women have no way to call for help. And they need help badly. They have run into some sort of military operation.

We know what happened in Four Corners. There was an accident with a milk truck the loosed nerve gas that killed all the people there. And a group came in to sanitize the scene before their dastardly plot could be discovered and stopped.

Meanwhile, Magozzi, Rolseth, and Harley and Roadrunner from the Monkeewrench crew are getting very concerned when they don't hear from the women. Sheriff Halloran is also concerned when he can't contact Sharon. He has a mystery of his own when three bodies are pulled from a local quarry which is a hang-out spot for teens. The three had been killed execution style. Before he can identify them, the FBI sweep in and claim the bodies.

The story is divided between the women who are trying to get out of Four Quarters and the men who are trying to find them. The suspense kept building to a very dramatic conclusion. I love the variety of mysteries in this series. This time the focus is on domestic terrorists which is a very timely topic in a book written in 2006. ( )

Grace, Annie and Sharon stumble across an entirely deserted small town - no people, no animals, no vehicles, no working phone lines - when their car breaks down. They soon discover what happened to all the inhabitants and gradually work out

SPOILER

that they are at the centre of a terrorist plot.

Unable to communicate with the police or the Monkeywrench crew, they fight for their lives, while their colleagues try to locate them.

This was a very exciting read and perhaps the most believable plot of the three novels in this series I have read so far. (Which is not to say that it wasn't a bit extreme!) ( )

Computer game experts Grace MacBride and Annie Belinsky are en route to Green Bay following reports of a serial killer when their car breaks down deep in the northern woods-and near an eerily quiet town where the phone lines are dead and no one is in sight. But when they witness a double murder, they find themselves running for their lives.
If you like tension, mystery, action, adventure you will enjoy this

Grace MacBride and Annie Belinsky, partners of Monkeewrench pick up Sharon Mueller, friend and Deputy Sheriff of Kingsport County, Wisconsin. They head north to Green Bay where they plan to consult with detectives who fear they have a serial killer on their hands.

While driving to Green Bay, they take a detour to see a tourist attraction, but their car breaks down and they walk into what appears to be a ghost town. All the phone lines have been cut. While sitting in the café they witness a soldier in camouflage kill a middle-aged couple with a M16. They decide to hide to until they can figure out what is going on. The action is just beginning …

Great read with excellent tension that keeps the pace hot and heavy. ( )
