They dubbed him the Collector, so named for his ritual of collecting victims before disposing of them in the most heinous ways possible.

FBI Special Agent Maggie O'Dell spent two years tracking him down, caught in a game of cat and mouse that left her forever marked by this killer.

Now Albert Stucky has escaped from prison. And he is setting up a new game to draw Maggie back into the chase.

Some say Maggie O'Dell has lost it, lost the professional edge that makes her one of the best criminal profilers, and lost her ability to think clearly. Since capturing Stucky she's been walking a tightwire, battling nightmares and the guilt over the victims she couldn't save. Now with news of his escape, she's been taken out of the field until he's caught again. But Maggie knows the truth: only she can see into the twisted mind of this madman. Only she can catch him. Albert Stucky wouldn't have it any other way.

When it becomes undeniable that Stucky's trail of victims is leading closer and closer to Maggie, the Bureau puts her back on the case. Under the supervision of Special Agent R. J. Tully, Maggie joins the hunt for a psychopath who continues to stay one bloody step ahead of them. And, once again under the control of a cunning killer, Maggie finds herself pushed to the very edge.

What, ultimately, is Maggie O'Dell capable of? Has her desire to stop Albert Stucky, to make him look into her eyes before she ends the game once and for all, become a matter of personal vengeance? Has she crossed that line in her need to make him suffer as he's made others suffer? And is this Stucky's game, to turn Special Agent O'Dell into a monster? Download and start listening now!

    " It didn't catch me at first but as I stuck with it, I was interested to know what was going to happen next. A bit graphic for my tastes but I'll try another one by her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 2/6/2014

    " Ms. Kava's second Maggie O'Dell book grabbed my attention and kept me enthralled from beginning to end. Albert Stucky is out of prison and playing his evil game with Maggie again. Nick Morrelli puts in an appearance as well. Ms. Kava is definitely honing her craft. "

    " The second in the Maggie O'Dell series was slower to get going. Don't get me wrong, it was worth the wait. The story had a lot to set up for which made it that much more exciting in the end. But the result was making the beginning slower. I was excited to dive into this book knowing Stucky would be after her. I was also thrilled to read more about her and Nick's relationship development. As the rest, her books are easy to get lost in, even if the story seems slower at the start. "

    " It was good! Full of interesting and unexpected turns of events. Amazing psychological thriller. Plus, I finally found out how Maggie O'Dell got her lovely dog Harvey! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelby | 1/20/2014

    " I liked this book featuring FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell even better than the first one. She is tracking down the serial killer that has haunted her nightmares. "

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

    " Maggie O'dell is a terrible heroine. Not even a likable character. I like suspense in my suspense novels and Alex Kava just doesn't have what it takes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Olson | 1/9/2014

    " "Split Second" is a gripping, fast-paced read. It is a great improvement after "A Perfect Evil." Even so I could do with a little less of the "heart palpitations" and such every time some male looks at Maggie, the main character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zo'e | 9/11/2013

    " Interesting second book but I was left feeling like I wanted more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha Starsick | 4/29/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 2/5/2013

    " AWESOME book!!!!! The character development was great, the plot was great... I was a little sad that I learned so little about the villian, but I think that he must have been discussed in the first book in this series, which I didn't read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 7/31/2012

    " Maggie's the bomb! I'm loving this grisly little series with the 'silence of the lambs' undertones. 2 down, many more to go. Yum! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bobbsta | 6/8/2012

    " Much better than the first one. Didn't follow the normal format of the first one or other crime books I've read recently. Looking forward to read the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 3/29/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Holford | 2/20/2012

    " I liked the story mostly. She scares me. I hope there are not very many people like her antagonist in the world. Too much nasty, violent death. However, I am reading her 3rd book now. "

    " Mostly enjoyable. There were just a few parts that had me thinking really? The ending was slightly anti-climatic . . . I spotted that coming just a short was into the story. Overall though, I enjoyed the characters and the story. "
