Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The sixth book to feature FBI profiler Maggie O’Dell, here facing a seemingly impossible case for the killer is using a deadly virus as his weapon. It’s dark, gruesome and not for the faint-hearted, but she is definitely an author worth trying. This one will grab you from the start – it’s first-rate.

Comparison: Patricia Cornwell, Karin Slaughter, Tess Gerritsen.

If you like Alex Kava you might also like to read books by Karin Slaughter, Tami Hoag and Tess Gerritsen.

Synopsis

Exposed by Alex Kava

Agent Maggie O’Dell believes she’s responding to a threat, but instead walks into a trap. The killer’s weapon is a deadly virus, virtually invisible and totally unexpected.

Maggie knows dangerous minds—from hauntingly perverse child predators to cunningly twisted serial killers. Now she faces a new opponent from inside an isolation ward. Maggie must find clues to catch the killer—while waiting to see if the lethal strain is already multiplying in her body.

With every new exposure there’s the potential for an epidemic. And Maggie knows she may not live long enough to stop the nightmare scenario becoming a devastating reality.

About the Author

Alex Kava

Alex Kava grew up in Nebraska, outside the small town of Silver Creek (population 500). As a child, Alex wrote short stories on the backs of old calendars and scrap paper, sharing them only with her younger brother and hiding them in a shoebox under her bed.

Alex earned an art scholarship to attend college. To pay living expenses, she worked in a nearby hospital’s central surgery department scrubbing equipment, utensils and basins from the morgue and surgery departments. She graduated from College of Saint Mary, in Omaha, Nebraska, with a B.A. in Art and English. She has advanced studies and certificates in advertising and marketing.

Alex then worked in graphic design, advertising, and public relations. She designed food packages and logos for national corporations, written brochures and newsletters, created a line of greeting cards, and directed TV and radio commercials.

During the summer of 1996, Alex quit her full-time job as a director of public relations in order to dedicate more time to writing fiction and getting published. To pay the bills, she resurrected her home-based graphic design firm, Square One. She refinanced her home, maxed out her credit cards, and even took on a newspaper delivery route.

Also in the summer of 1996, serial killer John Joubert was executed. Alex’s inspiration for A Perfect Evil was drawn from her experience while working at a small newspaper in the community where Joubert’s rampage had taken place in 1983. His execution reminded her of the terror and panic experienced, not only by that community, but by many parents across Nebraska.

Alex lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her two dogs, Miss Molly and Scout.
