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.

    "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.

    "love this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Vigilante to be better than the print version?

    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.

    Story
    "Scott Brick narrated books on sale for $4.95!"

    As I write this review there are about 30 hours left in Audible's sale of 54 books narrated by Scott Brick for $4.95 each. Many of them are in my library, but I purchased 9 including this one. It's a great deal for audiobooks performed by the narrator who NEVER disappoints.

    Stephen J Cannell died in 2010 and Vigilante, his last of 18 books, was published over a year later. Vigilante is and outstanding suspense novel that in my view falls just short of 5 star. It is Book 11 in the Shane Scully series.

    For those not familiar with Stephen Cannell he is a legend in the TV entertainment industry as a series creator, writer and actor. His books are excellent, but his work in dramatic TV series is where he is best known. It is a safe bet that almost everyone has seen and enjoyed his work.

    "suspenseful"

    Just excellent. The story held me from beginning to end . The characters were so well fleshed out that I felt like I knew each of them personally. Plenty of twists and turns all the way through .

    "worth a credit."

    I never write reviews, but I liked the story, it was not too predictable. Narrator was a bit different for this genre, but I got used to it.

    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.

    once again Stephen J Cannell has hit a home run. I didn't want the story to end.

    Great story, interesting twist with an exciting ending. I couldn't stop listening. Scott Brick does an excellent job of interpreting Channel's story
