Overview

After recovering from her nearly fatal exposure to a terrorist's deadly virus (read A Necessary End), Officer Katie Maguire and her best friend, Officer Marty Goldman, are rewarded for helping to save the world from a global pandemic with a one week Caribbean cruise aboard the MS Atlantis Pearl. The trip is going well until the ship docks in Kingston, Jamaica, where things quickly take a turn for the worse. Their problems start when Katie and Marty decide to go on a horseback riding excursion into the mysterious Blue Mountains located in the eastern tip of the large tropical island. Formerly a haven for pirates, it is said that the mountains and adjacent castle ruins along the coastline still harbor the ghosts of these long-dead buccaneers. The two Miami cops, along with their superstitious Jamaican trail guide and seven other members of the tour group, must soon deal with one disaster after another along the isolated horse trail. And then they discover they are not alone.

    good read

    Let¿s see, what happens when you take a tall beautiful blonde police officer, her friends, pirates, Greek mythology, Jamaica, PT boats, horses, and some topless women and mix them all up? You get Gerry Mackey¿s new novel, Seed of Thesis. Oh, did I mention a tall beautiful blonde woman? That would be Katie Maguire South Beach Florida¿s new police recruit whom Mackay damn near killed of in her first outing, A Necessary End. I¿m not giving plot away as this is a series. Katie and her buddy Marty are on a cruise to recover from their last adventure when they take a horseback tour up the mountains. On that journey, there is an accident and Katie and company run into a group of pirates whose leader claims to be a descendent of the Greek hero Achilles. Things get tight, but Katie is a master of martial arts, and a quick thinking, level headed woman. Plus, her captors think she¿s a sorceress. Katie risks her life to save those of her friends, and some of her friends become heroes in their own right. Mackey sets up a nice story that has a fast-paced ending that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good action thriller with a strong female lead. Be careful though, Katie Maguire will grow on you.

    What a cool book!

    Mr. Mackey did it again, what a great story! As in the first book of this series (A Necessary End) there's lots of action, comedy, and romance, along with some poignant scenes mixed in with scary, thriller stuff. Another classic example of good vs evil. All the true-to-life characters are realistically portrayed as normal, everyday folks who find themselves thrust into life and death situations from which they must either rise above their fears and personal shortcomings to survive . . . or give up and die. Some of them make it through, others don't. Believe me, once you pick up this book and start reading, you can't put it down. And the best part is, Gerry made me look great . . . again!

    Addicted to Katie Maquire

    If you liked the first Katie Maguire novel you will love this one. I was fascinated with the character development in addition to the actual plot which takes place in Jamaica. The author obviously did his research. Katie is once again a victim of circumstances and caught up in a dangerous situation. An action packed adventure reminding me of both 'Indiana Jones' and 'Pirates of the Carribean', it is a must read this summer. Animal lovers will enjoy the introduction of Voodoo, the mysterious horse. Marty, Katie's best friend will remind women of all those 'nice guy' friends who always wanted more. Will Katie ever fall for Marty? Looking forward to the next Katie Maguire novel.
