Tracy, P.J.: Two Evils

The authors' usual detectives Gino and Magozzi find themselves dealing with a series of killings in
the Somali area of Minneapolis.   At the same time, Grace McBride, on a yacht owned by her ex-FBI
agent friend, has killed two intruders who had come to kill them.   The two strands inevitably come
together.   In the Minneapolis killings, an ex-soldier dying of cancer is found shot with two local
crooks and this sends the two detectives to the north of the state to interview the man's friends with
whom he had been staying.   They, too, are ex-Army, one of them now the Police Chief on a Native
Reservation.   The denouement takes place in the latter's area.   While up to the standards of the
earlier novels of this mother and daughter pair, the underlying concept is a little hard to take even
in the current climate.   This, however, did not distract from the overall enjoyment of the book.
