A Necessary Evil
Ever since finishing all of Christie’s novels 3 or 4 times over, I’ve been looking for more detective fiction to fill my mystery appetite. This is the first Alex Kava novel I’ve read. I think I may be off a bit, because I didn’t feel neccessary for most of the people that got killed. I found the plot very interesting and had a good feeling about the ending w the book in general once I finished it.
When Keller offers to help Maggie solve the crimes in exchange for protection, she has no choice but to ally herself with the elusive child killer—the person she despises with a conviction that’s almost religious in its fervor.
I was very pleased that I was able to take off without feeling it had been too long. Thank you for your feedback. Jul 03, Cindy rated it liked it Shelves: I might as well retire my less than shiny super sleuth badge after reading A Neessary Evil.
