Very intense...and you might want to read Perfect Evil first. She uses many of the same characters.

Book 5 in the Maggie O'dell series is really a sequel to "A Perfect Evil", book 1 in this series. I was wondering when we would hear from Father Michael Keller again. And here he is on a hit list!

Fifth in a series, but works well as a stand-alone.

Kava weaves together two waves of frightening murders -- a series of young women whose decapitated heads have been found in the Washington, D.C. area, and a series of murdered priests who have all been involved in pedophilia scandals.

The observant reader will probably identify the Master Villain fairly early on, as Kava is generous with the clues and doesn't clutter things up with too many red herrings. At the heart of the novel, however, is a moral dilemma, dealing with the essential conflict between the law and true justice.

FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell is called in to profile the murder of a priest. Good story, interesting (and somewhat unexpected) ending, and some interesting characters.
