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.
Believing a serial killer to be at work in the vicinity, Grace MacBride and Annie Belinsky of Monkeewrench, a crime-gaming software company, are driving to Green Bay with a Wisconsin deputy to offer their services in targeting the culprit. But car failure strands them a short walk from the isolated Wisconsin town of Four Corners, which is entirely--and apparently, recently--devoid of people and working phones. As events unfold, the three women find themselves fleeing from a ruthless rural militia. This darkly comic mystery is the third Monkeewrench novel, written by a mother/daughter team.
