What if it's simply too cold too kill?
Life imitating art or death?
Makes you wonder when a young woman turns up dead and the clues lead back to an art gallery.
Perhaps there's an underground destructive past here but one thing is for sure the deaths must stop.
The digital age is great for connecting dots especially in murder cases so the cold case may turn hot over there.
Meanwhile clu ...more
Our murder is extremely compelling and the tech aspect of this one is intriguing as can be.
I especially adored our characters. They're quirky, but likable.
More than anything, though, I loved our icy Minnesota setting. The atmosphere is the perfect backdrop for our chilling murders.
Will happily read more in this terrific series!
I've enjoyed the Monkeewrench books from the beginning even though the previous book (#9) didn't have the same "edge" that I've come to expect. But Ice Cold Heart (#10) brings it back.... that feeling of imminent and threatening menace is present from the beginning. The story moved along quickly in spite of the complex story lines running throughout. Nice and complex and very, very twisty -- kinda like curly fries. All the usual characters ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed Ice Cold Heart, the latest instalment in a ...more

Murder and mystery abound in Minneapolis as the detectives take on the bitter winter to find a killer.
This story takes on so many twists and turns, and what feels like at first could be an easy capture leads us on a road that ...more
