New York Times bestselling author Alex Kava returns with another action-packed thriller featuring special agent Maggie O'Dell, who is on the hunt for a "truck stop" serial killer. Tired travelers and weary truckers have stopped at rest areas on the nation's highways for decades to refuel, grab a bite, and maybe get some shut-eye, but one man's rest stop is another's hunting ground. For decades the defenseless, the weary, and the stranded have disappeared along the highways and byways, vanishing without a trace, but these seemingly unconnected incidents are no coincidence, and a madman stalks the freeways. When FBI special agent Maggie O'Dell and her partner, Tully, discover the remains of a young woman in a highway ditch, the one clue left behind is a map that will send Maggie and Tully on a frantic hunt crisscrossing the country to stop a madman before he kills again. As the body count rises and Maggie races against the clock to unmask the monster who's terrorizing the nation's highways, she turns to a former foe for help since he seems to know just what the killer's next move will be. As she gets closer to finding the killer, it becomes eerily clear that Maggie is the ultimate target.

While I do co...
*Genre* Murder, Mystery*Rating* 3.0*Thoughts*I'm normally a fan of the FBI Special Agents Maggie O’Dell series, but this book felt kind of like a bridge to something else. If you haven't read this series yet, you will absolutely positively be lost. I would say that the least you could do is read Fir...
3.5 star readEvery now and again as a reader I'm fortunate enough to come across a series by an author that just seems to get better with each book. The Maggie O'Dell series by Alex Kava is, for me, one of these series. In Stranded the FBI and local law enforcement agencies are dealing with a series...
No waffling. She gets straight to the plot and to the point. Fat free.
