On the busiest shopping day of the year, some idealistic college students believe they're about to carry out an elaborate media stunt at the largest mall in America. They think the jamming devices in their backpacks will disrupt stores' computer systems, causing delays and chaos. What they don't realize is that instead of jamming devices, their backpacks are stuffed with explosives, ready to be detonated by remote control and turning them into suicide bombers.

Caught up in a political nightmare, battling a new interim director and still mourning the death of her boss A. D. Cunningham, FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell must put her own troubles aside and fly to Minnesota to help figure out what's behind this terrorist attack - a massacre that is all the more frightening because no group has claimed responsibility.

The search becomes personal when a tip reveals that one of the college students involved is Patrick, Maggie's brother. Afraid and on the run, Patrick must decide if he can finally trust Maggie enough to help her unravel this horrifying nightmare.

Sifting through the debris for answers, Maggie is joined by Nick Morrelli, who has recently taken a job with a national security company that oversees security for the mall. Although Maggie and Nick have investigated several cases together in the past, they've never investigated a relationship with each other. Nick would like to change that.

When an informant confides in Maggie that there are other attacks on the secret agenda, she knows that she's running out of time. In less than 24 hours, she'll need to figure out exactly when and where the second attack will take place, who to look for and how to keep her brother from becoming one of the casualties.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne Stehr | 2/19/2014

    " First off, this book is not nearly as lolng as it say, it is less than 300 pages, not the 400+ it says. It is a great book until the end (so as not to give much away I will say little) it falls flat. Completely flat. You rush to read and it has every making of a great thriller and then nothing. Good luck! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Currier | 2/18/2014

    " Another great entry into the series. Good suspense, well written, good pace. Of course, the ending was unfinished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 2/9/2014

    " Great idea for a story, so believeable, especially in this day of terrorism scares. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 2/2/2014

    " Maggie O'Dell provides excitement once again, fast and furious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yva | 1/31/2014

    " It's a great bath tub book: very entertaining with a good story that doesn't spur any outside research. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan | 1/18/2014

    " Enjoyed the story, though it ended very abruptly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise Malecki | 1/15/2014

    " Excellent story, if you like the profiling type stories, you will love this author and this story. Takes place the day after Thanksgiving ("Black Friday") and gets your blood rushing from the start. Just love Alex Kava, can't wait to start the next book in her Maggie O'Dell series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 1/13/2014

    " This one was pretty good I thought. Still enjoying the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trisha Jones | 11/11/2013

    " Kava -a master of suspense. Plot hits close to home with tie ins to the John Doe#2 conspiracy theory surrounding the OKC bombings. Good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kwing (Mook) | 11/3/2013

    " Interesting premise. Somewhat reminiscent of Cornwell's Scarpetta series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 8/30/2013

    " Every chapter was another scene from a movie that I want to see on the big screen. A great action read! I don't usually read books like this but I'm glad I made the exception. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 8/29/2013

    " Modern day thriller filled with terrorists and FBI agents trying to out maneuver one another. Fast-paced and interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 8/5/2013

    " I just enjoy the author and the charter Maggie O'Dell "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 7/10/2013

    " Typical fairly-well-written FBI vs. terrorist procedural. Great for the car. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina | 3/24/2013

    " It was rather boring and rushed. I read it in a double-decker edition with "Exposed" and liked the former much more. I will definitely check out the other Maggie O'Dell books though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 11/21/2012

    " I really enjoyed this. I kept having to put it down so it took me longer than I wanted to read it, but I'm sure the Project Manager is another of Maggie's cases that will get seen again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 9/30/2012

    " You may never look at a mall the same way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky | 9/6/2012

    " Maybe by reading all the Maggie O'Dells' right in a row, I have "it" figured out by the 2nd chapter, but it still worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina | 8/28/2012

    " Oh man. This book started off great - just like all her other great Maggie O'Dell novels (and police procedurals) but I found it had a lot of explanation, but no ACTION. And to find out at the end - that the darn guy DOESN'T GET CAUGHT? What's the point of writing the darn thing?! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Florence | 11/10/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. The story line had to do with a bombing at a mall. Terrorism or not? Couldn't put the book down. Will be getting more of this authors' novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl Cassell | 8/26/2011

    " This book started out really good but the ending didn't come together. Pretty disappointing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Giselle | 7/15/2011

    " I love all Kava books. This was not her greatest novel but it was still a great read.I wish it would have been longer and gone deeper into character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dwerdell | 5/2/2011

    " The latest of the Maggie O'Dell series. This was a good story but a little too dependent on the reader knowing who all the repeating characters are and how they fit into the background. The central event is something that could all too readily happen! Kind of a frightening thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 3/27/2011

    " Enjoyable book that entertained me on the day I didn't feel good and decided to stay in bed! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Md | 2/23/2011

    " FANTASTIC STORY!!!! I happened to read this on Black Friday in 2010. It was also the first Alex Kava book I'd read. A gripping page-turner! I've gone back and am reading her other novels to pick up Maggie's background. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Beth Preston | 2/2/2011

    " I really like Alex Kava. Since I listened to this on my ipod, I got through it a lot faster than if I had read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodney | 11/8/2010

    " This book was thrilling from the very beginning. It's scary to think that the terrorists attacks portrayed in this book could actually happen. Still a great read. I just love Maggie O'Dell. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 8/4/2010

    " This was an awesome book.
    I believe the author researched the subject very well, and it seems to me that he may have some "inside" information about how such things (terrorist things) work and are combatted.
    I really reccomend this book to people who like suspense novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/4/2010

    " The Mall of America is the setting for this thriller that takes place on the busiest shopping day in America--the day after Thanksgiving. The author has written a compelling story that brings all of her characters together from previous Maggie O'Dell series novels. It is an enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 11/24/2009

    " A Maggie O'dell novel. Prety good, starts out fast with kids carrying backpacks into the biggest mall in America, thinking they are only going to disrupt cell and satelight service. They are really bombs and thats only part of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 11/23/2009

    " How dumb am I to read this book during the week of Black Friday. Very scary because we can all imagine something happening at a big mall. Very fast moving, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dwerdell | 11/17/2009

    " The latest of the Maggie O'Dell series. This was a good story but a little too dependent on the reader knowing who all the repeating characters are and how they fit into the background. The central event is something that could all too readily happen! Kind of a frightening thought. "
