The Soul Catcher
In a secluded cabin six young men stage a deadly standoff with FBI agents.
In a wooded area near the FDR Memorial in Washington, the body of a senator's daughter is discovered.
FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell is called to the crime scene of a murdered young girl who was assaulted, strangled and left to die near the FDR Memorial in Washington, D.C. Her investigation leads Maggie to Reverend Everett, the charismatic leader of a religious group who had held a prayer meeting the night before the murder – a meeting that had attracted many young people, including the victim. Searching for leads with her partner, Tully, Maggie begins to realize that this case may strike close to home – her own mother is involved with Everett, and she may be the key to solving the case
At The Stroke Of Madness
In the tomblike silence of an abandoned rock quarry someone is trying to hide their dirty little secret.
A secret that is about to be discovered.
Special Agent Maggie O'Dell is on the trail of a serial murderer who has an affinity for lopping off his victims' diseased body parts and embalming the rest of their bodies in 55–gallon oil drums. Now Maggie suspects that her friend Gwen may be the murderer's next victim, and her only chance of finding the killer depends on the memory of an Alzheimer–stricken man.
