As is obvious by the title of this review, Play to Kill is the fifth book following the Monkeewrench Team. The Monkeewrench team comprises of four of the best computer programmers in the world, Grace, Annie, Roadrunner and Harley. A mismatched crew of outsiders that have made themselves a family, of sorts. Due to a violent history they are all very guarded, especially Grace, who was once the object of a serial killers obsession. Grace has an awkward yet endearing relationship with a homicide detective named Leo Magozzi. Leo and his partner Gino have been involved in all sorts of brutal cases in Minneapolis but now they face something so horrifying they don't know how they'll all survive.
It begins with the murder of a drag queen, which is an exact copy of a murder Monkeewrench have designed for their new computer game. As each day passes a new murder is discovered. Soon videos appear online of the murders and the team are faced with the terrifying question: is this one lone mad man or is this something much more sinister, a group of murders connecting through their depraved obssession and sharing what they've done online?
I did enjoy this book but I felt a bit let down as I felt the plot line wasn't as well developed as in previous books but I'd still recommend it if you've read the previous books in the series. It's nice to see how things turn out for Grace and Magozzi.
