PJ Tracy is about to become a household name (Daily Mirror) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

Grace MacBride, Annie Belinsky, and Deputy Sharon Mueller are driving from Minneapolis to Green Bay, Wisconsin, where Sharon believes a new serial killer is just warming up, about to terrorize the city if Grace's software can't identify him soon. A couple of detours later and the women find themselves deep in woodland where, to Annie's citified horror, the car breaks down. They eventually stumble across Four Corners, a crossroads town where they hoped to find a land line and a mechanic.What they find instead is a ghost town where everything appears normal apart from the complete absence of life and severed phone lines in every building. When the three become witness to a horrifying double murder committed by soldiers who have closed the town to the outside world for reasons the women can't begin to imagine, they find themselves running for their lives! With all the hallmarks that made "Want to Play?" and "Live Bait" so successful - crackling dialogue, great characters and striking pace - this next novel will take PJ Tracy to new levels. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

3 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von AugenBlicke-Fotografie am 3. Mai 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Ich bin erstaunt, was sich so alles verkaufen läßt und als Thirller des Jahres, Bestseller und was weiß ich angepriesen wird. Drei Frauen, die auf der Jagd nach einem Serienkiller ins Hinterland fahren und zufällig auf ein paar gruselige paramilitärische Aktivitäten stoßen und wie aufgescheuchte Hühner durch den Wald und durchs Dorf irren. Währenddessen die dazugehörigen Männer, Computercracks und ein paar arme FBI-Trottel die diese Frauen suchen.

Komplett planlos das Ganze. Die Serienkillergeschichte versickert im Sande, die Charaktere sind erstens stereotyp und zweitens weder ausgearbeitet noch glaubwürdig, die Story ist konfus und - sorry - kreuzdämlich. Das Ende war schlampig dahingekritzelt. Es berührt nicht. So schlimm das Szenario ist, das das Autorenteam entwirft: es läßt einen kalt, weil man es nicht glaubt.

Schlecht geschrieben ist es auch noch. Ich lese viele englische Bücher, aber bei diesem da hatte ich Schwierigkeiten dem Plot zu folgen. Die Autorinnen hüpfen von einem Thema zum anderen, geben Plattitüden von sich, daß es einem grauselt und die Männer sind so amerikanisch im schlimmsten Sinne, daß man am liebsten wegrennen würde.

Durchgequält und froh, daß es vorbei war - ich hatte gehofft, daß es besser wird, doch dem war nicht so. Ein Buch zum Lesen und Vergessen. Schade um die Zeit.

Dieses Buch reiht sich in die Tradition der Monkeewrench-Serie von P.J. Tracy ein. Im Mittelpunkt stehen diesmal die Frauen der Geschichte die in einer Kleinstadt in Wisconsin landen in der so einiges schief gegangen ist.

Jetzt mehr zu schreiben verraet schon zu viel ueber die Geschichte. Jeder, der dem Humor von P.J. Tracy verfallen ist, sollte sich dieses Buch goennen. Spannend und witzig - a must!

Mal wieder ein weiteres tolles Buch von PJ Tracy. Atemlos fesselt es bis zur letzten Sekunde mit echten Charakteren und einer Story, die sich vom Normalen deutlich abhebt.

Wie kann jemand, der mit einer solchen Phantasie gesegnet ist, nur abends ruhig einschlafen?

Unbedingt lesen!!

Different From the First Two, But Still Excellent! 23. Juli 2005
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The third outing for the Monkeewrench crew finds Grace, Annie and Sharon (Wisconsin deputy from the first book, now on loan to the FBI) traveling from Minneapolis to Green Bay, Wisconsin. Along the way their car breaks down and they stumble into a town where everyone has mysteriously vanished, and progressively more sinister developments are taking place.

Unlike the first two books which were more whodunnit mysteries, this is straight up slam-bang suspense as the three women pool all their considerable resources to survive their predicament and the rest of the now-familiar characters--Minneapolis detectives Maggozzi and Rolseth, the Monkeewrench geeks, and (welcome back!) Wisconsin sheriff Mike Halloran and deputy Bonar Carlson--race to their rescue as it becomes increasingly clear that not only as something horrible happened in the isolated Wisconsin town, but sinister forces are trying to make it happen again, on a larger scale.

A couple of reviews have pointed out the preposterousness of the plot, and it is one of those books that you read breathlessly and then put down and think, now waaaaiit a minute, that is kind of unbelievable--but while you are caught up in it it's totally believable, and I'm okay with spending a few hours like that.

Again, the characters are what drew me in and kept me involved with the story. The development of their intertwining plotlines, like Magozzi's slowly blooming romance with Grace and Sharon's with Mike Halloran, makes this more than a routinely forgettable thriller. The idea of three women kicking ass and getting themselves out of their predicament, plus the touches of humor amid the suspense and horror, are just icing on the cake.

This is another book I devoured in a day, and my only disappointment is that I now have to wait until the next book comes out to spend more time with these memorable characters!

Again, highly recommended but also recommended that you read this series in order: Monkeewrench, followed by Live Bait, followed by Dead Run.

Fast-paced, straight-up (but never straightforward) thriller 27. April 2005
Von Bookreporter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
P. J. Tracy first came on the scene with the tightly plotted serial killer novel MONKEEWRENCH. Tracy's sophomore effort, LIVE BAIT, although not as innovative as the first novel in the series, marked Tracy as an author to watch. Now, with DEAD RUN, Tracy offers a straight-up (but never straightforward) thriller that should propel this mother-daughter writing team into the company of the very best mystery and thriller writers.

As with the earlier novels in this loosely connected series, DEAD RUN's story alternates between Minneapolis and small-town Wisconsin. The software developers known as the Monkeewrench team have volunteered their sophisticated computer programs and their considerable expertise to help police departments solve related crimes. When Sharon Mueller, a Wisconsin police deputy now working for the FBI in Minneapolis, asks Grace MacBride and Annie Belinsky of the Monkeewrench team to help her connect the dots in a series of Green Bay murders, the three women set off on a road trip through rural Wisconsin.

Along the way, they find the grisly remnants of a mysterious event: an abandoned town, a quasi-military blockade, and a farm field filled with unspeakable horrors. Is this some kind of secret government experiment? Or is it the beginning of a new kind of war? Drawn into the mystery against their will, the three women soon find themselves actively involved not only in saving themselves, but also in preventing the potential deaths of thousands of other people.

In the meantime, terrified by the women's disappearance, the rest of the Monkeewrench crew and law enforcement agencies in two states mobilize to find the three women before it's too late. For some, such as Detective Leo Magozzi, the motivation is as much about their personal desires as it is about professional concerns: "We're not on the job. What we really are is a couple of frantic guys chasing a couple of skirts. Saving our women. Caveman stuff." Little do these frantic guys know, though, that their women are more than capable of taking care of business, sometimes surprising even themselves.

If this fast-paced, breathlessly plotted thriller has a fault, it is that it depends too much on a reader's knowledge of the earlier books in the series to fully understand and appreciate the nuances of character development and relationships explored in this third volume. Don't view this as a weakness, though; instead, use it as an excuse to pick up all three volumes in this thrilling series.

Deadly disappointing 11. April 2006
Von Mr. Phillips - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Grace, Annie and Sharon are on their way to lend their expertise to a serial killer case when their car breaks down and they stumble into a deserted town. It just so happens that the small population has been decimated by nerve gas and a right-wing militia group is determined to keep the incident from becoming public knowledge.

"Dead Run" certainly gets off to a great start, culminating in the three women witnessing a particularly brutal double murder. But things soon start to fall apart from that moment on. Basically, what started out as a decent thriller began resembling some bizarre cross between a B-grade action movie and a "Secret Seven" Enid Blyton novel. When "the boys" started pooling their resources to track down the women, the whole thing just started seeming silly. Main reason being - we the reader knew what sort of predicament the women were in! Following the boys around as they catch up to what we already know isn't particularly enthralling. And when Harvey (Grace's dog) suddenly started using his previously never mentioned supersniffer powers of detection, I was nearly ready to throw the book across the room. Was this a joke? Did the writers of two previous top-notch serial killer thrillers really come up with this pap?

I can't give this one star - there are some well-staged sequences of suspense. If this had been the focus of the story, I wouldn't have minded the lack of plot complications. But "Dead Run" is far more suited to the sort of $3.95 novel you pick up at the chemist as opposed to the major release it got.

ok plot, bad editing! 17. Mai 2007
Von C. M. Parisi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
ok plot, bad editing! they kept talking about how quiet it was but they couldn't hear a huge RV going breakneck speeds on country roads until it pulled up right in front of them? that is only one of the many inconsistencies I found. One must read it all the way through without stopping because if you stop you'll notice these things. also having never read the first two books the characters were completely faceless to me. only harley and sheriff ed pitala were explained in any way gave them 'life'. not bad for an airplane read I guess.

Good thriller with pace and panache 19. Dezember 2006
Von F. J. Harvey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is another novel about the "Monkeewrench " crew and the Minneapolis and Wisconsin cops with whom they co-operate to do down the bad guys .It differs from the previous series entries in being more thrillerish and less of a murder mystery.Indeed there are no mystery elements in the book and what we get is a good chase thriller.

The women from Monkeewrench -the Rubensesque Annie and the edgy Grace -are travelling by car to Green Bay from Minneapolis accompanied by a cop , Sharon Mueller ,when their car breaks down in a mobile phone and radio"dead zone ".They make their way on foot to the small town of Four Corners ,Wisconsin which they find is deserted and whose phone lines have been cut ,They then witness what seems to be the shooting of a local citizen by a National Guardsman.In fact .the killer is a member of a right wing militia group which is planning a nerve gas attack on selected targets .There has been a leakage in the area and the group is seeking to isolate the area and press ahead with the planned attack

We then get interlocking plots as the women seek to evade the militia and escape while their colleagues and the law enforcement agencies try tolocate them and foil the baddies

The authors take time to introduce us to the inhabitants of the town torn apart by the plot and this helps readers feel more empathy than if they had just been faceless victims and there is an nice vein of humour in the relationships between the cops and the somewhat unorthodox computer geeks they are partnered with .The tension build nicely and this is a good solid entry in a consistently entertaining series
