Really? You’re going to post a non-YA book suggestion? Say whaaaaat?!
Ok, so I read these books two summers ago, and I absolutely devoured them. They are fun, well-written mysteries by a mother-daughter team that writes under the name P.J. Tracy. (The daughter’s name is Traci and the mother’s name is P.J.). First up:
Monkeewrench. This is a mystery about a tech-savvy (to put it mildly) team that helps the Minneapolis Police solve computer-based crimes. There’s a twisty back story and neat gadgets.
“Haunted by a series of horrifying and violent episodes in their past, Grace MacBride and the oddball crew of her software company, Monkeewrench, create a computer game where the killer is always caught, where the good guys always win. But their game becomes a nightmare when someone starts duplicating the fictional murders in real life, down to the last detail. By the time the police learn of the connection between the murders and the game, three people are dead, and the game is just beginning.”
There are three more books in the series (so far!): Live bait, Dead run, and Snow blind. They are seriously addictive.
