Publisher's Summary

Lita Mendez was a thorn in the LAPD’s side. An aggressive police critic and gang activist, she’d filed countless complaints against the department. So when she’s found dead in her home, Shane and Hitch fear the worst: that there’s a killer in their ranks.Outside the crime scene, Nixon Nash, the charismatic host of a hit reality show called Vigilante TV, has set up shop with his television crew. Nash’s show is dedicated to beating the cops at their own game, solving murders before they can. Now he has the murder of Lita Mendez in his sights and he presents the detectives with a choice: either join his team or prepare for a public takedown.But Scully suspects that Nash isn’t the folk hero he seems. If a detective got in his way, just how far would the TV host go in the name of self-promotion? On the heels of The Prostitutes’ Ball, called “the best Scully yet” (Kirkus Reviews) and “perfectly fresh” (Booklist), this new novel from the celebrated author has Detective Scully risking everything to save himself, his family, and the job he loves.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, good to listen while working etc.

    The end was predictable. The journey was worth it though.

    He is one of the best, that is why I bought the book.

    Yes.

    "Great story with unique ending"

    Shaun Scully is one of my favorite detective. I enjoy how he thinks and how oblivious he is to authority. Somehow he always comes out on top

    I continue to enjoy Cannell's series work. Looking forward to the next. I'm sure somebody has thought of this but... these would make a good basis for a TV show.

    i think the audio version is better than the print version.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes it did.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    i have heard him on all of the shane scully series and his voice is captivating.

    "Another winner"

    A good read, and the usual excellent job by Scott Brick. So sad to lose Mr. Cannell. Both he and Shane will be missed.

    "Another $4.95 Winner!"
    What did you love best about Vigilante?

    Scott Brick's fabulous narration!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Shane and his partner....they work well together, funny and very protective of each other for two macho guy cops. Scott Brick's narration brought them as well as the other characters to life. I could see the fear in Marsha's eyes and Lee Bob's long bony fingers, I could feel the tension in the air. This guy is so good......


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The entire book was very good, the ending was especially good for Shane when he gets his shot back at Nash.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Cop vs. psychopath...who is the vigilante?


    Any additional comments?

    So I see this is the middle of a long series and after reading the reviews, I will have to find time to start from the beginning.
