Monkeewrench founders Grace McBride and Annie Belinsky, along with Deputy Sharon Mueller, are driving from Minneapolis to Green Bay, Wisconsin, where they believe a new serial killer is just warming up, when their car breaks down, deep in the northern woods, far away from civilization and cell towers. A walk through the forest leads them to the crossroads town of Four Corners, where they had hoped to find a landline and a mechanic, but instead find...absolutely nothing. Something terrible has happened in Four Corners, and the complete absence of life and severed phone lines in every building make it impossible to get help. Grace, her senses honed by a lifetime of justifiable paranoia, sees the sinister in every detail, and her intuition barely saves all three of them when they witness a horrifying double murder. Grace, Annie, and Sharon are suddenly running for their lives, while the rest of the Monkeewrench crew, along with Minneapolis cops Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth, strike out on a blind search to find them.… (more)

This is the third in the series that started with Monkeewrench. (Each stands alone, nicely, too, by the way.) Grace and Annie (founders of the company that makes crime profiling software) head out for Green Bay with their FBI pal, Sharon, to help find a serial murderer there. But on the way... Their car breaks down just outside Four Corners, Wisconsin - a lovely, sleepy little down. Maybe a little too sleepy. The signs of people - a working dinner and shops and homes and cars - but there are no people. There are no animals. What in the world happened to this town? And it starts getting even stranger faster. This author is really two people and they are great story tellers. These books are all guaranteed to entrap! ( )

This was my favorite of the 10 books in the series. Many innocent lives were lost, but the tension build up was about more than I could stand. I could not put this book down. ( )

Good extension of the series. Not as funny as the previous book and sometimes the plot tends a little too strongly toward the improbable but a fun read none the less. ( )

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. ( )
