Want To Play? – By T.J. Tracy – Book Review #26
Want To Play?
I’ve been reading a book a week, sometimes more than one a week, since the start of the year. I pledged to read a book a week for my Goodreads challenge and I’d been doing really well until I started this book.This book took me three weeks to finish. I hasten to add that it wasn’t because the book wasn’t good. It was excellent and I really enjoyed. The reason it took me so long is that I’ve been so busy these last few weeks.

What with all the garden updates, working on the blog and family stuff, I just haven’t had time to sit and read.
I gave myself some time off over the weekend just so that I could finally get the book finished!
Want To Play? has also been published with the title, Monkeewrench and is the first book in the series. The story centres around a group of people who own a business called, funnily enough, Monkeewrench and a detective called Leo Magozzi.
Monkeewrench is a computer game design company. Grace McBride is working on a new serial killer game in which there are 20 murders and you have to find the clues to each murder before moving on to the next one. It’s been released online but only for testing and as such, not all of the levels have been released.
Meanwhile, actual people start getting murdered in the same way and same sequence as in the game. Grace notices this and calls the police. Detective Magozzi is the lead on the case and through his investigation, we soon find out that the people from Monkeewrench aren’t all they seem. There’s something in their past that could be connected to the murders.
All through the book, I was kept wondering who the killer was. Every time I had to put it down, I got annoyed because I just wanted to keep on reading!
I’ve bought some of the others in the series but I was very disappointed to find that I haven’t yet bought book 2! I now have to wait until a copy of Live Bait comes into the charity shop so I can carry on with the series!
