Part of the Maggie O'Dell series
For decades, tired travellers have stopped at rest areas on America's epic highways to rest, refuel and get a bite to eat, but little do they know that one man's rest stop is another's hunting ground.
For years the defenceless, the weary and the stranded have been disappearing along the highways and byways, vanishing without a trace. When FBI special agent Maggie O'Dell and her partner, Tully, discover the remains of a young woman in a highway ditch, the one clue left behind is a map that will send Maggie and Tully on a frantic hunt crisscrossing the country to stop a madman before he kills again. As the body count rises and Maggie races against the clock to unmask the monster who's terrorising the nation's highways, she turns for help to a former foe who seems to have an uncanny knack for guessing what the killer's next move will be.
But as she gets closer to finding the killer, it becomes eerily clear that Maggie is the ultimate target.

Review by tina1969
As always I think it best sometimes to read books in order. This book could be read as a stand alone but readers will miss the earlier encounters with profiler Maggie O'Dell which are the better ones.The earlier books for me were better because of the relationship Maggie did or didn't have with Nick Morelli. These earlier books for me were page turners and I couldn't wait for the next installment. The Nick was wrote out of the stories and the books became for me an average thriller. I really missed Nick !Now a new character, Ryder Creed as been introduced and in this novel straight away there is something between him and Maggie that will maybe bring back that magical spark. The story has been left open and the nect book is called Breaking Creed, so will is still around.The story was a fast paced thriller with the back stories of the familiar characters of Maggie, Gwen, Tully and now Ryder. Again this is why I like to read books in order. A better read from the series but earlier books are a must.
