On Pensacola Beach, the Coast Guard prepares for a Category 5 hurricane that has entered the Gulf of Mexico. When the air crew patrols the waterways, they spot a huge fishing cooler about a mile offshore. Drug traffickers have been known to dump coolers with smuggled product to avoid detection and pay fishermen to retrieve them. But when the crew open this cooler, they're shocked by what they find: body parts tightly wrapped in plastic.

Though she is putting herself in the projected path of the hurricane, Special Agent Maggie O'Dell is sent to investigate. Eventually, she's able to trace the torso in the cooler back to a man who mysteriously disappeared weeks earlier after a hurricane hit Port St. Lucie, Florida. Only Port St. Lucie is on the Atlantic side. How did his body end up six hundred miles away in the Gulf of Mexico?

Cliffhanger chapters, behind-the-scenes forensic details, colorful characters, and satisfying twists have become the trademarks of Kava's psychological thrillers. In Damaged, she ratchets up the suspense a notch by sending Maggie into the eye of an impending monster hurricane to track down a killer.

    " Still loving Maggie O'Dell. Even though Damaged was predictable, the overall story was still gripping and enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 1/24/2014

    " Easy read did it on an audiobook as I am getting so int these. All I can say is of this was not on audio I would not have taken the time to read the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Collver | 1/14/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary sipp rigby | 1/9/2014

    " read in 2 days wow she has written other books also "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 12/26/2013

    " Didn't like the way this book jumped back and forth between storylines. There wasn't much mystery to this either. You can easily determine the oitcome of this story within the first few chapters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/19/2013

    " I've enjoyed all of Kava's books that I've read so far. This one wasn't bad but wasn't as good as the others. I do appreciate her attention to detail and how she seems to seamlessly combine fact and fiction. It's still worth reading and it is also one of her shorter novels. I read in a couple days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 6/24/2013

    " Another gory book by Alex Kava. Not the best of her novels but I still couldn't put it down once I started reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 6/21/2013

    " This book centers on a hurricane in Florida with a guy attempting to supply bones and tissue for replacement for hospitals and doctors. I hadn't realized this was even happening. Good main character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beate | 6/10/2013

    " A predictable storyline and gore. Nothing spectacular about this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 3/23/2013

    " Maggie O'Dell rolls so hard "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy Spicer | 3/22/2013

    " B; A new author for me. Had a bit of trouble keeping on track as there were multiple main characters. Not a bad read and I'd dive into the author's work again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madeline | 3/20/2013

    " A good face paced read for the summer. Maggie O'Dell is in trouble again - this time with a major hurricane coming. Enjoyed it. "

    " Enjoyed it quite a bit, but it'd be nice to have Tully back! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 E | 2/16/2012

    " My main complaint about this book was that it was too short! While I am no fan of the 500-page behemoths that many myster novels seem to be these days, I felt like I was just starting to get into the characters, and then the book was done! Guess I'll have to read more in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 11/20/2011

    " This series is the bomb! It reads fast with satisfying results! "
