    "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.

    "Fun to read" Would make a good X-Mas Present. If you like a good mystery, this is your book. You won't be able to put it down.

    "Great Way to spend some time" A Necessary End is a fun book to read, you fly through the pages and the author keeps you wanting more when you finish. Great way to spend a day when you need a break from the distractions in life and just want to relax.
