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.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

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


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

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


    Was Vigilante worth the listening time?

    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.

    Story
    "You can see it coming, but it's still quite a ride"
    What made the experience of listening to Vigilante the most enjoyable?

    It's been a while since I listened to a Shane Scully novel, and this was a treat. Though the bad guy is pretty readily apparent, there were enough plot twists to keep my interest.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually like the part after the arrest best. I won't spoil it, but just say I suspect it's more realistic than just ending the novel with the perp in handcuffs.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Shane, of course. Ever the self-aware tough guy.

    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.
