    Fast Paced Thriller

    Alex Kava's novel, Hotwire, is a fast-paced thriller that kept my interest throughout the book. Readers will love the characters, especially Special Agent Maggie O'Dell, who uses her keen investigation abilities to connect two supposedly unrelated cases, but gets into some pretty sticky situations in the process.

    My only issue with this book is the unnecessary amount of conversation in every chapter. There were many instances when I felt the author could have elaborated on the setting or characters, instead of filling the pages with pointless dialogue, because the actual story was infinitely more captivating. It did, however, make the book a little easier to finish, since the last half involves many conversations that you can mostly skim, since they aren't incredibly relevant or important. Overall though, the book's premise and author's writing style make it worthwhile, as long as you're able to overlook the minor shortcomings.

    Hotwire

    Somewhere on government property in Nebraska a group of kids are nearly electrocuted during a drug party and not far away cattle are being mutilated. This is what FBI agent Maggie O'Dell has to deal with. Meanwhile on the east coast, a group of kids get sick from eating cafeteria food and Maggie's friend Dr. Benjamin Platt is investigating that. Are these two cases connected or are we reading two stories?

    This is the first Maggie O'Dell story I read and although intrigued by the possibility of government conspiracies, I didn't care for the jumping back from one subplot to the next. It was satisfactory.

    Good book.

    Love the Maggie O'Dell series. I feel if you read between the lines Maggie's case and Platt's case are linked. Wished they would have been together more in this book.
