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.

    I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.

    Story
    "Scott Brick is My Favorite"

    male narrator. It's so refreshing to listen to a book narrated by Mr. Brick. I have a hard time finding one in the genre I like because I've listened to almost all of the ones he's narrated in fiction, suspense/mystery.

    I was engrossed the entire time but I don't know if it was because I was so thankful to be listening to a narrator that didn't sound like fingernails on a chalk board or the story was really that compelling.

    In any event, I never once thought about just stopping the story and moving on to my next book.

    "Keeps You Guessing"
    What did you love best about Vigilante?

    I liked the pace of the story.


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

    Yes, because you did not know what was going to happen next.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not laugh or cry, but it did touch a nerve considering the injustices some people will do to make themselves look better.

    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.
