New York Times best-selling author Alex Kava returns with another action-packed thriller featuring Special Agent Maggie O’Dell, who is on the hunt for a madman terrorizing the nation’s highways.
Tired travelers and exhausted truckers have stopped at rest areas on the nation’s highways for decades to refuel, grab a bite, and maybe get some shut-eye, but one man’s rest stop is another’s hunting ground. For years the defenseless, the weary, and the stranded have disappeared along interstates and tollways, vanishing without a trace. But these seemingly unconnected incidents are no coincidence, and a serial killer stalks the roads.
When FBI Special Agent Maggie O’Dell and her partner, Tully, discover the remains of a young woman, the one clue left behind is a map - an invitation of sorts for Maggie to play a game - a game of cat and mouse between killer and investigators that will take Maggie and Tully on a frantic hunt crisscrossing the country to halt the truck-stop killer before he strikes again.
With the body count rising, Maggie and her partner race against the clock to unmask the monster before it’s too late. As they piece together the clues, following the killer’s trail from D.C. to the heart of the Midwest and finally to the isolated forests of the Florida Panhandle, it becomes eerily clear that this killer may have had Maggie in his sights all along.
Intense and harrowing, this white-knuckle ride of a thriller introduces a lethal foe for Maggie and is Alex Kava’s most compelling novel yet.

Only with another narrator.
I couldn't listen to the whole book--didn't get past the first disk. I am requesting a refund so that I can purchase the book on my e-reader.
Her performance of the male characters was so irritating that I just couldn't listen to the book.
I wouldn't have cut anything, I would just have had the narrator read in a normal voice.
I love Alex Kava's books--she needs to screen her reader's more carefully--readers like Joyce Bean do a wonderful job of reading both male and female voices without being so irritating!
I enjoyed this book until the last 20 min. Good story really liked the characters. Big build up to a unrealistic ending.
I will give Kava another try.
Not trying to be judgmental here, but this narrator has a lisp that is so terribly distracting I cant listen to the book. I really want to listen to the book, since I have listened to others by this author and read in print as well. Plan to return if I can.
