A Necessary Evil
An Introduction

Detective Tommy Pakula is handed the case of his career when a Catholic monsignor is found knifed to death in an airport restroom. When Pakula learns that other priests have been murdered in other cities in the same ritualistic manner, FBI Special Agent Maggie O’Dell is called in to profile the case.

As Pakula and Maggie drill down into the facts they discover a disturbing Internet role-playing game for youths who have been victims of abuse by Catholic priests. With the first real lead in the investigation, they wonder if this group has turned cyberspace justice into reality by dispensing their own brand of vengeance. As the ritualistic killings leave America’s heartland reeling, Maggie gets a second lead--one that leaves her stunned.

For the past four years she has been driven by blind determin
ation to find Father Michael Keller, the human monster whose acts of brutality continue to hnt her to this day. Sick and twisted, the priest seems to have vanished without a trace. But with an irony that only life can offer, now he has become a target.

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. Maggie must cross a dangerous line into a world of malevolence and evil from which she may not return unscathed.

Maggie knows the bargain is a necessary evil…one th
at may be made in blood...

An Introduction


Agent Maggie O’Dell and Assistant Director Cunningham believe they’re responding to a threat made at Quantico. Instead they walk into a trap. Before they realize it, they’ve both been exposed to a killer who can strike at anyone, at anytime, and no one can predict who might be next...until it’s too late.

Maggie knows dangerous minds -- from hauntingly perverse child predatirs to cunningly twisted serial killers. Now she faces a new opponent from inside an isolation ward at a biosafety containment hospital. Maggie must help Agent R.J. Tully find clues to catch the killer -- while waiting to see if the deadly strain is already multiplying in her body. With every new exposure there’s the potential for an epidemic. And Maggie knows she and Cunningham may not live long enough to discover who is the deadliest, most intelligent killer they’ve ever profiled.

Thanks to Lindy who just picked A Necessary Evil randomly off the bookshelf I have now found a new author that I love. Alex Kava has a few books staring FBI agent Maggie O'Dell and her crew -- I love this author!! I have read 2 books so far and haven't been disappointed one bit...She does a great job at tying all the pieces together at the end.

I give these books a 5 out of 5 bookmarks!!
