Sifting through the debris for answers, O'Dell discovers that worse is yet to come, with more attacks imminent - and the consequences unimaginable. In less than twenty-four hours O'Dell must figure out what the next target is, and who exactly she is fighting against. Struggling to put the pieces together in time, she realizes just what is at stake - and that her own brother may be in the firing line.

"Starred Review. Bestseller Kava's superb Maggie O'Dell thriller (after Exposed) features a particularly memorable villain, the Project Manager (aka Robert Asante), the third party behind 1995's horrifying Oklahoma City bombing, along with real-life terrorists Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Now Asante has directed an attack on Minnesota's Mall of America during Black Friday, the big retailing day after Thanksgiving, that kills 32 people, including two students who were duped into carrying devices that they believed would just create an electronic blackout. FBI profiler O'Dell, still recovering from the death of her boss, must work with her new superior, hypercritical Raymond Kunze, as well as her ex-boyfriend, security consultant Nick Morrelli, to prevent a second major terrorist outrage Asante has planned to follow shortly after the first. Kava peppers the breathless action with enough intel to make the premise scarily real." (Oct.) Publishers Weekly
