This is the best story in the series to date with Maggie and Tully doing some serious profiling. We learn a lot more about Tully's history and there are a few shocking events before the end. I really liked how true life events were woven into this fictional tale, w ...more
I still dislike the author's habit of pausing in the middle of events to tell us unimportant details about her character's thoughts or past lives. However she did reduce this somewhat in this particular book.
Maggie also seems to be getting a grip on life now and managed to come up with some actual constructive detective work. I do wish she would ...more
An act of terrorism or a personal vendetta…
On a seemingly routine morning at the FBI behavioral sciences unit, agent Maggie O’Dell and her superior find a threat hidden in the doughnut box and are subsequently exposed to a deadly virus. Is this the work of a fanatic or someone with a grudge? How many will die before Maggie and her partner uncover the truth?
A thrilling premise delivered with style. A little different from the other books in the series, Exposure is mo ...more
Maggie and her boss receive an anonymous letter that leads them to a house where a woman if dying with a contagious disease. They all have to be quarantined and soon the virus threatening them has a name: Ebola Zaire. One of the deadliest viruses around.
Not only that but also several people across the country are receiving money packages infected with the viru ...more
In this sixth installment of the Maggie O'Dell series, FBI expert-profiler Maggie is tracking down a killer who indirectly murders others using a strain of the Ebola virus. Maggie's latest case is extraordinary because she tracks the killer while being confined in a private lock-down cell - after already having been exposed to the virus.
Exposed is quick, fast-paced, and unques ...more
Maggie's role in this one was intriguing, mostly because she was so isolated, forcing her to come to some hard realities that she was really alone. It will be interesting to see if she makes any changes in her life.
Tully was more front and center in this book by default. I liked how he worked through things. ...more
I was happy to see O'Dell and Tully get the chance to use their profiler skills to solve the mystery, even if that resolution comes a bit late. Too often these two key characters are reacting to events around them instead of acting on wh ...more
I don't want to post any spoilers - there are twists and turns, who do you trust, who don't you trust and not everyone makes it out alive (which is something you can see coming).
"Elvan", the subject matter is right up your alley :)
2 thumbs up and 5 stars - onto "Black ...more

A Maggie O’Dell Novel
By Alex Kava
It isn’t so much the actual acts of terrorism that makes Exposed by Alex Kava so chilling! It was, more, that the story setting was so real and vivid! A game of chance used to cover the personal actions of one man to murder those he hated! Innocent victims!
It was a routine morning and Maggie and other FBI agents were gathered to enjoy the doughnuts that were sitting waiting to be consumed. Maggie O’Dell was about to ta ...more
Exposed had the potential to be an outstanding example of a m ...more
Veteran FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell and Assistant Director Cunningham believed the threat targeted Quantico. It targeted them.
A deadly virus—virtually undetectable until it causes death from a million internal cuts. The victims appear random, but Maggie wonders if vengeance isn't the guiding hand.
An aficionado of contemporary killers, using bits and pieces from their crimes—the Beltway Sniper's phrases, the Unabomber's clues, the Anthrax Killer's delivery.
Maggie knows dangerous minds, but she
1st my review of the book then my excited blabber about finding a great new author and new series to read....
"Exposed" is a great read about dangers of murder using chemical warfare. "Exposed" is interesting because for most of the book the main character (Maggie O'Dell) is in the hospital under quarantine and yet it does not take away from the suspense of the story line. Kava gets you hooked on the main characters of this book and you want to know more about them- luckily she has a whole series ...more
The story was interesting at first, I love the setup for action at the begining. This was going to be my first experience with the Maggie O'dell book series. My library has lots of this series and it sounded it interesting. I got two books and this was going to be my safe book, the one I just knew would be light and easy fun.
There is one problem with this book, but it is hugely insurmountable and makes this a horrible mess and kills all enjoyment of the book. There are too many ...more
This review is from: Exposed (Maggie O'Dell) (Hardcover)
This was an entertaining biomedical thriller. It had enough science to inform a reader about the resultant disease and the ease of transmission of a lethal virus (Ebola Zaire) and an adequate amount of suspense to keep me guessing as to the identity and motivations of the criminal mastermind behind the devious plot. I find books about ...more
OK, so if it sounds like I'm giving the story short shrift, it's probably because I think Kava gave the book's topic, with all its terrifying implications, the sam ...more
"Agent Maggie O'Dell and Assistant Director Cunningham believe they're responding to a threat made at Quantico. Instead they walk into a trap. Before they realize it, they've both been exposed to a killer who can strike at anyone, at any time, and no one can predict who might be next.until it's too late.
The killer's tactics suggest he's an aficionado of criminal minds. He uses bits and pieces from those he admires: a phrase from the Beltway Snipers, a clue from the Unabomber, a delivery ...more
Granted, I wasn't as impressed with 'Black Friday' as I thought I would be, but I was willing to give the author another shot, especially since the boo ...more

You can kind of guess at the quality of a book if it has 384 pages and 83 chapters, plus an introduction, end notes and a bibliography of referenced works. There isn't going to be a lot of in depth examination of any as ...more
