About book: "When a Massachusetts standoff results in the deaths of five out of six young cult members holed up in a backwoods cabin, things are bad enough. But when a U.S. senators daughter is found murdered in Washington, D.C."and her death seems to be related to the cult and its charismatic leader, Rev. Joseph Everett"the situation really heats up for Maggie and her partner, R.J. Tully. The case hits particularly close to both partners homes, since Maggies former alcoholic mother has joined Everetts church and Tullys daughter was with the senators daughter on the night she was killed. Will Maggie be able to solve the case without endangering her own mother?"Book nº 3 in the Maggie O'Dell series I really enjoyed this new story, more than I thought I would in fact because religious cults aren't really one of my favourite subjects.In the beginning in seems there are 2 plots being developed - a preacher trying to convert people to his cult and a serial killer on the loose - but soon it seems that both may be connected. Maggie is busy investigating the crimes and trying to identify the serial killer and doesn't immediately realise her mother is involved with the cult. I was intrigued by the killings and had my suspicions about the murderer but only guesses it a few chapters before the end.I think Maggie still has deep scars about her past and the book actually ends on a positive note as she and her mother may be prepared to speak about the past and make an effort and work in their relationship. I was surprised about not seeing more of Nick Morelly in the story after what we had in the previous books and I don't understand what is taking so long for her divorce to be final. I'm really curious about what's happening with Tully, Gwen and even Racine so I'll be picking up the next book soon.Grade: B

I started reading this book after it kept falling off my bookshelf (I took it as a sign, and I don't regret it.)I love the show "Criminal Minds" (Not because of Shemar Moore alone :p ) but because the human mind is fascinating and their thought process even more so. So, when I started this book and read that it was about FBI and more specifically, Behavioural Science Unit, I was taken with it. What Kava did was combine a realistic, yet a bit far-fetched at points, situation into a story that gripped you from the first page. She carefully weaved a web that was so complicated, a web that implicated more than one character for the heinous crimes and then slashed that web down with force enough to knock you off your feet! The story was simple yet complex and there were times I was confused and a bit disappointed, I did not quite like the ending, it was unexpected yes, but also did not deliver the satisfaction of having caught the guy. Ah well, you win some and you lose some, there were also a few loose ends the book failed to tie up, as such I am awarding a solid 3 stars because everything else kicked a$$ !!

I agree. Just for fun, I would like to see some writer show a religious, fundamentalist group in a postive light.It is such a stereotyple. I am not a fundamentalist--but I find the contant portrayal in media of all fundamentalists as wacky cultist to be unture.

I really enjoyed this book. I have enjoyed the whole series so far. Maggie finds out a little bit about her dad in this book and I am sure that will come into play in the future. She reminds me of me when it comes to family just a little. I would go into detail about how but my family may read this review!! haha. They will have to read the book to find out how. My only real beef with this book was that there were too many people who were really involved with the whole thing. Like her mother and Tully's daughter both being soo close. Then Racine saving her mom... I don't know... it was all a little too close to the problems but I really did enjoy it.

This is yet another series I’m coming into thanks to finding it at a library sale. Maggie O’Dell is a FBI agent, partnered to a divorcee, Tully, who is raising his daughter. Maggie has a strained relationship with her alcoholic mom and Tully has issues with his ex and dealing with a teenaged daughter. (trust me, this is important). The story has many points of view, Maggie, Tully, Gwen (Maggie’s psychiatrist friend), Maggie’s mother (Kathleen), and several of the villains.It opens with a Ruby Ri
