A Necessary Evil by Alex Kava

Starting off the Fiction Flame Friday where I boost about a novel I've just finished, I wanted to start with Alex Kava's crime book A Nevessary Evil.
It's about a series of murders that are happening in a mean, calculated way. And it's the murder of priests! Priests! Who are murdering our beautiful, innocent priests that would never ever do anything wrong?? Is it a crazy serial killer on the loose? Or maybe it's a little closer to home. Maybe it's a internet game online gone a little too real.
To crack the case and discover the happenings of the murdered priests, Maggie O'Dell, a FBI Special Agent, and Tommy Pakula, a detective, is put on charge. As the murders rise, they rush to discover the killer. But as time goes by, Maggie O'Dell gets a call from a Father Michael Keller. It's a man she despises and a man that haunts her dreams. She'd rather wrap her hands around his throat and kill him, but in the end, she has no choice but to join forces with him if she wants to crack the case.

I had a few problems with the book and that was mostly due to the fact that there were too many characters at once. It was hard to keep track. It was a little confusing to keep up with the story. I had to memorize the names and remember who is who to each other. But that is all completely my fault for reading the fifth book in a series. It wasn't until after I started the book that I realized it was a series. I'm sure if I had began with book one, I would know all the characters from memory. At least by the middle part, I had every character completely stuck in my head. In a good way of course. 
I think one big thing I loved about it were the characters. Once I got to know them I was transported into their world and I saw things from their eyes. I guess that's the point of a story anyways. There's usually that one character I hate in a story, not because of their part in the book, like whether they're the good guy or the bad guy, but just because their traits personally annoy me. But in this book, there was not one character I disliked. And that's a big thing with me.
After i finished this book I realized that I needed to get back to reading my Nancy Drew stories. I was totally wrong about the killer! I didn't know how I could be so dumb! The murderer was right there all along. I couldn't believe it myself.
This book was for sure on fire and that's why I gave it five stars!
