K9 handler, Ryder Creed and his scent dog, Grace return to Nebraska to join FBI Agent, Maggie O'Dell and Special Investigator, Tommy Pakula on the same task force that helped rescue his sister, Brodie a year ago. But their job is interrupted when a rural Postal carrier finds a black, plastic bag discarded in a grassy roadside ditch. What's inside is shocking to even these seasoned investigators: the partial remains of what appears to be a young woman. TRUST NO ONE. Just that morning another young woman has gone missing. Is her disappearance connected? Did she run away? Or was she taken? And is it only a matter of time before she ends up in a roadside ditch? Ryder agrees to search for her, but an early snowstorm threatens to replace the warm fall temperatures. His scent dog, Grace has never worked in cold and snowy conditions. THEN EVERYTHING GOES WRONG. The snow blurs the landscape and grinds life to a halt. As Maggie O'Dell searches for answers about the victim, she begins to uncover a cold-blooded, ruthless killer who has murdered before. By the time Maggie realizes no one has heard or seen Ryder since before the snow began to fall, she fears he and Grace may have walked into the killer's path. Reading Alex Kava for the first time?

A TRAILBLAZER IN THE K-9 FICTION GENRE, Kava creates a “dynamic between Ryder and his canines that reveals a world rarely shared in fiction and perhaps nowhere presented more effectively than in this series.” —Phil Jason, Florida Weekly Award-winning author, Alex Kava pulls readers into the middle of the storm and has them gasping for air even as they turn the next page. —A STORM IS COMING— In Alabama: A deadly outbreak of tornadoes sends K9 handlers, Ryder Creed and Jason Seaver with their scent dogs, Grace and Scout to search for survivors. As storms intensify and Ryder and Jason race against time to save victims, they end up racing to save themselves. —NOT EVERYONE’S STORM IS THE SAME— In Chicago: Francine “Frankie” Russo is irritated when her young co-worker calls at 5:00 am for a video-chat and catches her in only a towel. She’s so annoyed with Tyler Gates that she’s barely paying attention when two men confront him on the street. In a matter of seconds, Frankie witnesses Tyler’s murder. Then the killers pick up the phone. And suddenly, they know what Frankie looks like, who she is, where she works and lives. She knows absolutely nothing about them. But one thing’s for certain—they’re coming for her next. —WHEN THE STORM HITS— Frankie calls the only people she knows can help: her childhood friend, Hannah Washington and Hannah’s business partner, Ryder Creed. Hannah tells her to “come on home,” and she arranges a meeting for Frankie to meet with FBI agent Maggie O’Dell. Meanwhile in the Florida Panhandle: Creed’s sister, Brodie is dealing with her own storm. She’s realizing that after sixteen years of captivity, surviving was only the first step. With the killers hot on her trail, Frankie races to meet Maggie. But she has no idea that she’s driving straight into the grasp of another killer—a monster storm system. She and Maggie will need Ryder and Jason’s help, but no one is safe from the devastation. And by the time the sky clears, none of them will ever be the same. WHO WILL BE STRONG ENOUGH TO SURVIVE? In Desperate Creed Alex Kava, once again, delivers her signature trademark combining “well-developed characters” (Publishers Weekly) with “a highly original plot” (Suspense Magazine) then packing it with “twists, turns and suspense galore” (Modern Dog). “Did I mention the dogs? They and their human partners are simply the heart and soul of everything.” (Florida Weekly)

For decades, tired travellers have stopped at rest areas on America's epic highways to rest, refuel and get a bite to eat, but little do they know that one man's rest stop is another's hunting ground. For years the defenceless, the weary and the stranded have been disappearing along the highways and byways, vanishing without a trace. When FBI special agent Maggie O'Dell and her partner, Tully, discover the remains of a young woman in a highway ditch, the one clue left behind is a map that will send Maggie and Tully on a frantic hunt crisscrossing the country to stop a madman before he kills again. As the body count rises and Maggie races against the clock to unmask the monster who's terrorising the nation's highways, she turns for help to a former foe who seems to have an uncanny knack for guessing what the killer's next move will be. But as she gets closer to finding the killer, it becomes eerily clear that Maggie is the ultimate target.
