"Alex Kava is a master. Her heroine, Special Agent Maggie ODell is one of the classic characters of the thriller genre."
--Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

International bestseller Alex Kava delivers a stunning prequel to her critically acclaimed Maggie ODell series.

From her small Quantico office, Special Agent Maggie ODell has profiled serial killers using Poloraids, faxed copies and scraps of evidence provided by homicide detectives from across the country. Shes gained a reputation for successfully profiling killers and solving crimes without ever stepping foot at a real crime scene.

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. Pieces of victims start showing up in takeout containers, strategically left for unsuspecting bystanders to find. Sometimes the body is dumped near by. Others are never found.

Maggie is tasked with profiling the murders. Despite all her skills and talents nothing has prepared for this. For the first time in her career shes seeing the gruesome crime scenes firsthand, because this madman has chosen the backwoods of Virginia as his killing grounds.

When Stucky discovers an attractive female FBI agent is part of the task force to stop him, he begins to taunt Maggie. He leaves notes and bits and pieces as if they were clues for a morbid scavenger hunt. Each step of the way hes daring Maggie to catch him if she can, all the while planning to make her his next prey.

Let the chase begin.
