When Serial Killer Albert Stuckey was finally put in prison, FBI Special Agent Maggie O'Dell breathed a sigh of relief. But it was only a few months later that Stuckey escaped from prison. Maggie is an expert profiler who knows Stuckey like the back of her hand. She is the one person who knows Stuckey's patterns, knows the way he thinks. As Maggie works with Special Agent R.J. Tully, they realize that the latest victims all have one thing in common...they have all been in contact with Maggie within a few hours of their death.

This is the second book in Kava's Maggie O'Dell series. I liked this story better than the first in the series. We know that the killer is watching Maggie closely. He knows exactly where she is at all times. It gave me a creepy feeling to think about someone being stalked but having no knowledge of where that person is hiding.

I liked many of the new characters that were introduced in this book, especially R.J. Tully and Tess McGowan. But I thought Maggie's continuous paranoia and inner thoughts were monotonous. My rating: 4 Stars.
