Two Evils

Recommended by Gordon Holmes

A missing teenage girl lies dead in a parking lot. Two young immigrants are killed in their apartment. Three men are found dead in the street nearby. And that’s just in the first 10 pages!

As the police struggle to establish what’s happened, they realise that the deaths may not be as random as they first appear.

As the killings continue, homicide detectives Magozzi and Rolseth turn to maverick computer analyst Grace McBride and her Monkeewrench team for help, drawing her into an investigation that will threaten all their lives.

And as the evidence mounts, it reveals terrifying intent. Ultimately, it forces the two detectives to make a dreadful choice: down which path does the lesser of two evils lie...

It’s a touch formulaic and at times stretches credibility a little but overall, this is an enjoyable read for those who like fast action and plenty of bodies - and it made me want to visit the Minnesota countryside.
