The killer's tactics suggest he's an aficionado of criminal minds. He uses bits and pieces from those he admires: a phrase from the Beltway Snipers, a clue from the Unabomber, a delivery method similar to the Anthrax Killer. His weapon is a deadly virus, virtually invisible and totally unexpected. His victims appear to be random but, in fact, they are chosen with a revengeful precision. The vaccine is limited and untested.
Maggie knows dangerous minds - from hauntingly perverse child predators to cunningly twisted serial killers. Now she faces a new opponent from inside an isolation ward at a biosafety containment hospital. Maggie must help Agent R. J. Tully find clues to catch the killer - while waiting to see if the deadly strain is already multiplying in her body. With every new exposure there's the potential for an epidemic. And Maggie knows she and Cunningham may not live long enough to discover who is the deadliest, most intelligent killer they've ever profiled.

I am a big fan of thrillers. I only give stories a 5 rating if it really keeps my attention and makes we anxiously wait to see what's next!
The story was way too slow moving. Kava's books are usually better than this so I was disappointed. I think keeping the main character out of the major action for a good part of it did not help. It also seemed repetitve in many spots.
The main characters in the story are F.B.I. The narrator made the characters, both male and female sound like they are in a junior high school Nancy Drew type play. It was so annoying it took away from what may have been a decent story. If I see the narrator's name again on any other book, I will avoid purchase.
