Overview

Hotwire (Maggie O'Dell Series #9) by Alex Kava, Tanya Eby

In New York Times bestselling author
Alex Kava’s new thriller,
Special Agent Maggie O’Dell investigates the death of three teenagers, only to find herself in the middle of a conspiracy involving biological warfare.

On a crisp fall evening in western Nebraska, what started as a group of kids filming their drug-induced party ends in an explosive light show, leaving the victims apparently electrocuted, with odd scorch marks being the only evidence. While Maggie tries to make sense of the different stories, sifting through what is real and what is hallucination, she realizes that the surviving teens are being targeted and systematically eliminated.

Meanwhile, on the East Coast, Army Colonel Benjamin Platt is at the scene of a deadly outbreak, desperate to identify the pathogen that has infected children at a Washington, D.C., elementary school. Despite the miles that separate them, the two cases collide as Maggie and Platt uncover secrets that were meant to stay hidden in the remote Midwest landscape.

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. Reviewed by Brittany for Book Sake.

I like Alex Kava's Maggie O'Dell series. I like the fact that the books are set at various locations around the country – and NOT ones that are commonly used by other novelists. (This one is largely set in western Nebraska, for example.) I like the fact that the heroes – while likeable – have their flaws, and the bad guys have some redeeming social qualities – not enough to actually be considered redeemable, mind you, but enough to provide some color to characters and organizations that many lesser writers would paint in black and white. However, after reading a few (or listening to them read to me in audio book format), I find that “mystery” is a misnomer. I can usually determine who the culprit(s) is/are well before the end of the book, and any “surprise” is either in the “how” it is determined or because I missed out on additional members of what turned out to be a conspiracy. Hotwire is no exception. Teenagers at a clandestine outdoor party in western Nebraska are electrocuted. School kids in Norfolk are sickened after eating their school lunch. WHAT is going on? Is there a connection? (Readers of this genre will, of course, anticipate that they MUST be, or they wouldn't be occurring in the same book!) I treat the Maggie O'Dell series like popcorn. Enjoyable, but not filling. A quick snack, which I could certainly skip, but won't because I find it enjoyable. RATING: 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 stars.

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.
