Overview

When 23 year old Katie Maguire graduated from the Miami police academy, she was ready to begin her new career with the South Beach Police Department. That's when Sergeant Steve Callaghan approached her for a special undercover assignment . . . as an underage prostitute. An easy detail, with very little danger. That is, until Murphy's Law took over. Suddenly, the FBI and CIA were involved, as was the mysterious Mr. Smith and his team of mercenaries. The previously routine South Beach vice investigation had now become an international incident involving hostile governments and weapons of mass destruction. Unaware of what was going on, Katie got caught in the middle of the whole mess, finding herself being held captive aboard a luxury yacht, heading halfway around the globe. Her captor was dashing and handsome, and despite her predicament, Katie found herself falling for him. Unfortunately Death had finally caught up to Katie and, with a tenacious grip, was preparing to drag her into oblivion.

    Couldn't put it down

    A fun read, great story with very interesting characters. As each chapter ended I couldn't wait to read the next. I had a hard time putting it down. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait for a sequel.

    Can't put it down

    I enjoyed reading this book, it kept me up nights as I had trouble putting it down. I know there is a sequel and am looking forward to reading it.

    Big Disappointment

    From the description this looked to be an interesting read. It was not. The characters were not well developed. The lead female character is supposedly highly intelligent, yet in the majority of the conversations you fell like you're listening to 12 year olds. It had potential but fell far short. I would not read this author again based on this book.

    Try it, you'll love it.

    I've read both "Seed of Thetis" and "A Necessary End". What a fun adventure. The characters are interesting and make you root for them throughout the book. Katie is every man's fantasy girl. She is the female version of James Bond without the attitude. Beautiful, innocent and not to be messed with. I can't wait until the next book comes out. This is just the start of Katie's career, you know there are many more dangerous adventures looming ahead. Keep working Gerry Mackey, I can't take a flight now until I have a Katie Maguire book to read.

    Good debut novel

    Any book that starts with, ¿Where¿s my hooker?¿ as a first line has promise. A Necessary End is the debut novel of Gerry Mackay, a former Miami Beach police officer, introducing a blonde bombshell of a character named Katie Maguire. Katie is a twenty-three year old rookie police officer, with a black belt and a cutting sense of humor, recruited for a simple undercover assignment as a teenaged prostitute, hence that interesting opening line. Of course, the assignment goes awry when the CIA gets involved and Katie finds herself halfway around the world making some new friends, and some new enemies along the way. It¿s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Mackay gives a few interesting plot twists, and turns making the reader wonder what¿s going to happen next. Through the engaging story, Katie¿s past is revealed in an interesting parallel story line and the reader comes to not only root for the heroine, but also want more of her. Fortunately, the author leaves a nice little lead-in for the next novel. A Necessary End is a good debut novel and I recommend it. Be careful, you may find Katie Maguire addicting.
