From Goodreads.com: It begins with a floater.
When Minneapolis homicide cops Gino Rolseth and Leo Magozzi are called to a derelict stretch of the Mississippi River, they see the bride, facedown, dead in the water. And when the Monkeewrench crew-computer geeks who made a fortune on games, now assisting the cops with special anticrime soft-ware-are invited by the FBI to investigate a series of murder videos posted to the Web, it's not long before the group dis- covers the frightening link between the unlucky bride and the latest, most horrific use of the Internet yet. Using their skills to scour the Net to prevent more killings, the team must race against the clock . . . before it's too late.
Read as an audiobook.
This book has been more sedate and grounded than the last couple of Monkeewrench book - a return to the feel of Book 1 (Monkeewrench) and Book 2 (Live Bait) No one is running around the countryside in the dark trying to escape terrorists, no one is driving around the state in a week long blizzard; we have our characters knuckling down and working the crimes in their hometown of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
I can't decide if I felt there was a de-emphasis on the romantic interests that were developing but not really progressing in books 1-4. Detective Leo Magozzi and Grace McBride continue their strange relationship, while unintended outside influences make them reconsider their lack of a relationship. The epilogue makes me wonder if I was missing more in the relationship dance or if I just ceased to care. Much like TV shows, when the unrequited love/sex interests drags on long enough, I loose interest. And in the case of Grace McBride, I've lost interest.
I also particularly enjoyed the twists at the end - somewhat expected if you are paying attention, but delightful anyway. Whole series is recommended.
