Play to Kill by PJ Tracy is the second novel in the Gino and Magozzi crime series.

Call it murdertube . . .

Minneapolis homicide cops Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth fish a murdered drag queen out of the Mississippi. Another day, another corpse. Except the victim's death throes quickly appear in a video posted online. And there are other videos, other murders.

Unable to trace who is posting the videos, the cops turn to Grace MacBride and her crew of eccentric computer mavericks. But as the bodies and videos stack up, the team desperately try and answer a terrifying question:

Is this the work of a lone individual? Or of several killers who have taken social networking to the darkest extreme. . .

Hot on the heels of Want to Play? comes PJ Tracy's thrilling Play to Kill, the second work in the series. The much loved Grace MacBride, Gino and Magozzi are back. Fans of Karen Rose and Lisa Gardiner should sit up and pay attention.

Our customer reviews

This is an extremely well-written mystery thriller. It only took me one day to read, because I was unable to put it down. The characters are real, the prose easy to read and the plot all too believable in the internet age. I particularly enjoyed the race-against-time scenes. These parts aren't always easy to write and often fall flat, but in this book the tension that built up was genuine and I found myself gripping the book as tightly as I could while praying that they would arrive in time. Play to Kill is definitely an example of one of the better written murder mysteries and I highly recommend it as a gateway into the more
