About the Author
Alex Kava is an international bestselling suspense writer. Her work has been widely praised by critics and fans alike, and her previous novels in the Maggie O’Dell series, A Perfect Evil, Split Second and The Soul Catcher, have spent several weeks on the New York Times extended and USA TODAY bestseller lists. Growing up in the country outside Silver Creek, Nebraska, Alex Kava fantasized about becoming a writer. Her parents, although they understood the value of education, had a tremendous work ethic. Reading was seen as frivolous unless required as schoolwork. As a teenager, Kava wrote short stories on the backs of calendars, sharing them only with her younger brother and hiding them in a shoe box under her bed. / Kava earned an art scholarship to attend college. To pay living expenses, she worked in a nearby hospital’s central supply department collecting and sterilizing all of the basins, instruments and equipment from surgery, pathology and the morgue. In 1982 she graduated magna cum laude from College of Saint Mary in Omaha, Nebraska, with a B.A. in art and English. /After graduating, Kava held a variety of jobs, mostly in advertising and marketing. Starting her own graphic design firm, Square One, she designed food packages and logos for national corporations, wrote brochures and newsletters, created a line of greeting cards and directed TV and radio commercials. In 1992 she returned to her alma mater as its director of public relations. /Kava quit her public relations position in the summer of 1996, wanting to dedicate more time to writing fiction and getting published. To pay the bills, she resurrected Square One, refinanced her home, maxed out her credit cards and even took on a newspaper delivery route. /Alex Kava is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. She lives in Omaha, Nebraska. Her Web site is located at www.alexkava.com

The characterisation fell into second place to the plotting, which was good, even though I did guess whodunnit. Nick was only in for a couple of pages (and not with Maggie.) There's really only Maggie and Tully as likeable characters - and even Maggie's beloved father's memory becomes tarnished. Maggie is sinking more into herself and her isolation and it was all a bit uncomfortable. I didn't enjoy this much at all. Also feel I should add:.....snake alert for those who don't like them!
Regarding the story per se, it had all the right ingredients but werent adequately acted upon. Stories of secret sects are always interesting and popular but i feel that its function was never satisfactorily explained and i couldnt feel but help that its members had to be extremely gullible to join in, leave everything behind and become willing slaves. The culprit responsible wasnt too difficult to guess, and the end is too neatly wrapped up for my liking plus very unlikely. However all in all, a good one for the collection of this promising series.
This book had such high potential. The story was there, I was really intrigued by the 'religious cult' theme and thought it really halped it along. And also the character of Julia Racine i found to be very intriguing and was a good character to be added to the series.
However there seemed to be alack of character development on the behalf of Maggie O' Dell and also Tully and his relationship with his daughter. A few chunksof the book seemed to be dedicated to delving into the relationship between Tully and his daughter however it seemed to go nowhere and just seemed to re-visit what was already explained in previous books.
Also another fault I found with this book was what I percieved as a slightly anti climatic ending. It seemed to be rushed and there seemed to be a few loose ends that I wont delve too far into here at risk of ruining the story for those of you who have not read it.
That being said I shall plough on with this series in hope of the 4th offering 'At the Stroke of Madness' to be an improvement. Theres definately potential for this series, Alex just needs to get her rear in gear.
