Penguin Putnam
Haunted by a series of horrifying and violent episodes in their past, Grace McBride and the oddball crew of her software company, Monkeewrench, create a computer game where the killer is always caught, where the good guys always win. But their game becomes a nightmare when someone starts duplicating the fictional murders in real life, down to the last detail.

By the time the police realize what's happening, three people are dead, and with seventeen more murder scenarios available online, there are seventeen more potential victims. While the authorities scramble to find the killer in a city paralyzed by fear, the Monkeewrench staff are playing their own game, analyzing victim profiles in a frantic attempt to discover the murderer's next target.

In a thriller populated by characters both hilarious and heartbreaking, a rural Wisconsin sheriff, two Minneapolis police detectives, and Grace's gang are caught in a web of decades-old secrets that could get them all killed.

Great read. Reminds you of the John Sandford "Prey" series. Characters are original & diverse, smart & funny dialogue & a plot that is fast, complex & keeps you turning the pages.
Quite impressive for a first book & I look forward to reading the others.

This is a really great thriller written by a mother-daughter writing team. The plot is clever with lots of twists and turns, never boring or obvious. I hope they are hard at work right now writing more books!
