Overview

Split Second (Maggie O'Dell Series #2) by Alex Kava

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 tracked him for two years, finally ending their game of cat and mouse. Now Albert Stucky has escaped from prison . . . and he is setting up a new game for Maggie O'Dell.

Some say Maggie O'Dell has lost her edge as one of the FBI's best profilers. Since capturing Stucky, she's been walking a tightwire, battling nightmares and guilt over the victims she couldn't save. Now that Stucky is loose again, she's been pulled out of the field. But she knows it's only a matter of time before she's drawn back in — because only she can see so clearly into the mind of this madman. And he's counting on just that.

As Stucky's trail of victims leads closer and closer to Maggie, she is put back on the case under the supervision of Special Agent R. J. Tully. Together they race against the clock to hunt the killer who remains one bloody step ahead of them. And Maggie finds herself pushed to the very edge. Has her desire to stop Albert Stucky become a matter of personal vengeance? Has she crossed the line? And has that been Stucky's goal all along — to make her into a monster?

Although her first book was more intense, this book did keep me reading. I read the other reviews and almost didn't waste my time, but im very happy I did. Great book. Good twist, and good ending. I recommend reading! I am planning on reading the rest of the "Maggie" series. Definately good reads!

I had never read an Alex Kava book before, but I do enjoy crime novels. This was just what I like...evil criminal, determined law enforecement, personal glimpses into the lives of the characters. It was hard to put down, and I found myself reading when I knew I only had time for just a page or two.

This book really starts with a bang and the rest is so intriguing it's tough to put down. The amount of evil and depth of Stucky is fantastic, while Maggie is an equally strong character. A killer without a conscience - Stucky makes this an exceptional book. There's no excuse not to read this one!

I like Split Second even better than the first book in the Maggie O'Dell seres. This was a reread for me, and it has been enough years that I didn't remember much about the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and think Kava did a great job of writing a thrilling suspense. I couldn't turn the pages enough waiting to find out what would happen to Maggie, Tully, Tess, and some of the other characters. FBI Special Agent Maggie O'Dell has been taken out of the field after her nemesis, serial killer Albert Stucky escapes custody. That he will come after Maggie isn't in question, so her boss is trying to protect her. All too soon, women Maggie randomly encounters start turning up dead, mutilated in a way that is Stucky's signature. Maggie knows she is the only one who can find him and has to be back on the investigation. When her boss finally relents, Maggie and a new partner, T.J. Tully, follow the trail left by Stucky, trying to find him before he ratchets up more kills and eventually gets them or someone close to them. When they start finding fingerprints that do no belong to Stucky and some other inconsistencies, they begin to wonder if this madman is working with a partner. Kava is a master at creating evil villains! This book also had mention of the one from the last book, Father Keller, and I'm sure we haven't seen the last of him. He and Albert Stucky were both ones I found very evil and creepy. I love the character of Maggie O'Dell, as well as some of the secondary characters. I thought she and Tully made a great investigative team, with each having completely different strengths. I like Tess in this one quite a bit, and worried about her fate terribly. It was good to get a glimpse of Nick Morelli again in this one, and I was very glad that Maggie adopted Harvey and bonded with him. The storyline was great, and I can't wait to see what happens in the series next!
