At the Stroke of Madness (Maggie O'Dell Novels)by Alex Kava
Synopses & Reviews
In the tomblike silence of an abandoned rock quarry someone is trying to hide their dirty little secret. A secret that reveals the depths of human depravity. A secret that is about to be discovered.
FBI Special Agent Maggie O'Dell is just starting a hard-earned vacation when she gets a call from her friend, psychologist Dr. Gwen Patterson. One of Gwen's patients is missing on a trip to Connecticut. Can Maggie look into Joan Begley's disappearance?
At first Maggie dismisses Gwen's concern. But when the body of a woman is discovered buried in an abandoned rock quarry in Connecticut, Maggie heads to the small town on "unofficial" business to see if there's a connection to Joan Begley. Soon the shocking news surfaces that more bodies have been discovered. And before she realizes it, Maggie is drawn into a case that confounds both local law enforcement and a seasoned criminal profiler like herself.
The question remains: Where is Joan Begley? Is she in fact the woman discovered buried in the quarry? Or is she the unwilling guest of a killer obsessed with possessing an unimaginable prize from his victims?
A Special Agent Maggie O'Dell novel, from the bestselling author of 'A Perfect Evil', 'Split Second' and 'The Soul Catcher'.
FBI special agent Maggie O'Dell learns that the body of an unidentified woman has been found buried in a 55-gallon drum in an abandoned rock quarry in Connecticut. Maggie heads there on "unofficial" business, and realizes this case is more twisted than anyone imagines.
