Tired travelers and exhausted truckers have stopped at rest areas on the nation’s highways for decades to refuel, grab a bite, and maybe get some shut-eye, but one man’s rest stop is another’s hunting ground. For years the defenseless, the weary, and the stranded have disappeared along interstates and tollways, vanishing without a trace. But these seemingly unconnected incidents are no coincidence, and a serial killer stalks the roads.
When FBI Special Agent Maggie O’Dell and her partner, Tully, discover the remains of a young woman, the one clue left behind is a map - an invitation of sorts for Maggie to play a game - a game of cat and mouse between killer and investigators that will take Maggie and Tully on a frantic hunt crisscrossing the country to halt the truck-stop killer before he strikes again.
With the body count rising, Maggie and her partner race against the clock to unmask the monster before it’s too late. As they piece together the clues, following the killer’s trail from D.C. to the heart of the Midwest and finally to the isolated forests of the Florida Panhandle, it becomes eerily clear that this killer may have had Maggie in his sights all along.
Intense and harrowing, this white-knuckle ride of a thriller introduces a lethal foe for Maggie and is Alex Kava’s most compelling novel yet.

Would you try another book from Alex Kava and/or Tanya Eby?
Only with another narrator.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I couldn't listen to the whole book--didn't get past the first disk. I am requesting a refund so that I can purchase the book on my e-reader.
What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?
Her performance of the male characters was so irritating that I just couldn't listen to the book.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stranded?
I wouldn't have cut anything, I would just have had the narrator read in a normal voice.
Any additional comments?
I love Alex Kava's books--she needs to screen her reader's more carefully--readers like Joyce Bean do a wonderful job of reading both male and female voices without being so irritating!
