Snow Blind by P. J. Tracy

Review by Andrea Maloney

The holidays are over and it looks like it will be a long, cold winter in Minneapolis. But this is Minneapolis and they love the snow so they sponsor a good, old fashioned snowman building contest.  Everything is going along delightfully until two of the snowman are revealed to contain the bodies of two police officers. Suddenly what was a fun filled event turns into a nightmare for Detectives Magozzi and Rolseth.

Meanwhile the next day, the brand new sheriff of Dundas County, Iris Rikker, comes across another body in another snowman and soon it is feared a serial killer is on the loose.  

Afraid that the new sheriff will be unable to handle the investigation, Magozzi and Rolseth head to Dundas County in a blizzard to help out.  Soon they find themselves in need of help from Grace MacBride and her crew at Monkeewrench to search the web for clues to help them solve this horrible killing spree.

The mother and daughter writing team known as P.J. Tracy have done it again. Snow Blind is another thrilling installment in the Monkeewrench series with a taut and exciting storyline, beloved characters and humor sprinkled liberally throughout.

With Detectives Magozzi and Rolseth in the lead this time you get a wonderfully developed police procedural storyline with terrific character interactions, witty dialogue and woven throughout are social issues that will leave the detectives with an ethical dilemma showing that life isn't just black and white but sometimes filled with shades of gray.

P.J. Tracy has done a marvelous job of continuing the evolution of these wonderful characters and I for one am looking forward with great anticipation for the next installment in this delightful series.
