review for A Necessary End by Diana Rubino

What would happen if the ghost of a Roman killer, long dead, haunted John Wilkes Booth in an effort to drive him mad? Add in the fact that Wilkes is dating a beautiful Yankee sent to spy on him. They fall in love even though they’re on opposite sides. What occurs when she tries to stop him from his plans against President Lincoln? This book shows us, with a cast of fascinating characters, including a “Jack-the-Ripper” type doctor on the scene to add interest.

A bit of the paranormal meets history with a dash of “Romeo and Juliet” thrown in to make for a page-turning story. Ms. Rubino knows her history, and she writes entertaining works, one right after the other. A Necessary End does not disappoint.

Historical characters are brought to vivid life in this story. The reader gets a behind-the-scenes look into Booth and the action that made him infamous. What things happened, slowly pushing him toward his radical decision to kill Lincoln?

Ms. Rubino’s story explores all of the above in a way that is memorable. Even though we all know the inevitable ending concerning Lincoln, suspense is still created, and tension is high until the last page. This book is highly recommended to both lovers of historical fiction and the paranormal.

Having history re-created with changes to the people is a fun idea for a book.
