A review by constancechloe
At the Stroke of Madness by Alex Kava


Though the way the story is written was rather interesting, it wasn't really as much of a thriller as the author sells it to be. Because it's a "Maggie O'Dell" novel, the ending is slightly ruined what with the showdown between the killer and Maggie because the author wouldn't kill off a character that a whole series circulates around. Other than the very typical ending and the greatly irritating killer - who takes the entire book to finally kill someone only to get busted by the police before he can actually do anything - this book was fairly well written and I actually enjoyed some of it.
