Description

'O'Dell could be Reacher's long-lost twin' LEE CHILD

Special Agent Maggie O'Dell doesn't need to set foot at a crime scene to catch a serial killer. From her small Quantico office, she's profiled criminals using just Polaroids and faxed copies of evidence from homicide detectives across the country.

Then comes Albert Stucky . . . and nothing will ever be the same.

Stucky is a sadistic madman who places pieces of his victims in takeout containers and leaves them for innocent bystanders to find. He enjoys his twisted games as much as he enjoys the kill. And when Maggie is tasked with profiling his murders, Stucky is only too happy to rise to the challenge:

'Let the chase begin.'

New York Times bestselling author Alex Kava returns with a heart-stopping new thriller featuring special agent Maggie O'Dell, who will face one of the most terrifying serial killers of her career.

Review quote

International bestseller Alex Kava delivers a stunning prequel to her critically acclaimed Maggie O' Dell series.

Special Agent Maggie O'Dell doesn't need to set foot at a crime scene to catch a serial killer. From her small Quantico office, she's profiled criminals using just Polaroids and faxed copies of evidence from homicide detectives across the country.

Then comes Albert Stucky . . . and nothing will ever be the same. Stucky is a sadistic madman who enjoys his twisted games as much as he enjoys the kill. And his killing grounds are the backwoods of Virginia, right on Maggie's doorstep. Tasked with profiling the murders, she must face the gruesome crime scenes firsthand.

When Stucky discovers a young female FBI agent is part of the taskforce to stop him, he begins to taunt Maggie. He leaves notes and clues for her to follow, daring her to catch him. But can Maggie hunt him down before he makes her his next victim?
