"... an explosive book."


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

Maggie truly knows and understands dangerous minds, from hauntingly peverse 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 - whilst waiting to see if the lethal strain is already multiplying in her body.

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

Purchase the book from Amazon.


Exposed is an excellent thriller that you will probably want to finish in one read. It is a slightly different format to the usual murder mystery as the killer is using a lethal virus rather than a traditional knife or gun, but don't let that put you off as it is certainly no less exciting. Kava's characters are all very realistic and interact well with each other. The reader has a definite sense of empathy with them and there is a real sense that you want them to survive or succeed. Some clues are given to enable the reader to guess who is behind the crimes, but there are also plenty of false leads so you will need to keep reading to the end to find out who - and why. It is great to have Kava back with such an explosive book.
