A great story

The story line kept me interested through the whole thing. I am going to have to get more of Frank Zafiro's books.

Really enjoyable thriller

I really liked this story more than I expected to. This isn't the first time I've read or watched a movie about people who end the lives of criminals outside of the legal system. I liked how we learned about Sandy Banks and his struggles with being one of the "Horseman". It made a killer more human and likable. Enjoyable thriller and worth the listen.

Excellent

A group of retired cops finding a flaw in the system take it upon themselves to be vigilantes. A method that no questions were asked, until two wanted to quit, good plot and narration. Given audio for my voluntary review

Justice dealt out at his hand

A group of retired police officers, finding that the "system" often allowed crooks to "get of jail", from the exploitation of loopholes, or the flaws in the documentation that the police had to submit, to gather evidence.
So, a group of four, calling themselves the "four horsemen",plus a seeker, examined the various cases and where a really ruthless person had "gotten away with it", they meted out justice, in such away, that the homicide squad had no reason to question what they could put down as an obvious scenario of death.
This comes to a halt , when one of the last two horsemen called it quits. The Last man, however, trying to tidy off the last cases, finds that more than the original five were in the know, and that what had originally been an altruistic quest, now had served as a self centred method to gain money, using the four horsemen's expertise.

If you need a nap, here's your narrator!

Frank Zafiro is a good author. Good story line. I think. Hard to follow between falling asleep with the continuous drone of the narrator.

My kind of book

Another enjoyable read/listen from Frank Zafiro late last year.

I really liked this one from the get go, though in truth if the events depicted in the book were re-enacted in real life, I'd be appalled and outraged. In fiction, I find it fun to see bad guys taken down by fair means or foul. Sandy Banks gets way more latitude from me than any over zealous plod would.

A group of ex-cops have for some years been dispensing their own brand of terminal justice to criminals who have beaten the judicial system and are deemed beyond the pale. The cabal is now splintering. A couple of members have left previously, their old quartermaster died, one more wants out and Sandy Banks is the last man standing. The Feds are closing in on the operation and Sandy is wondering whether its time to head for the hills, after maybe one more job. His current hit provider is ahead of him on that score, but needs to subvert Banks to sort out some of his own personal issues.
Sandy gets played and he isn't too happy about things. It ain't quite over.

Exciting, tense, extremely interesting premise and main character as well as a fast-moving tale. Zafiro portrays the frustrations and disappointments of dedicated police officers when cases go south, through either sloppy police work or legal loopholes. You can tell he knows of what he writes. Hopefully the vigilante stuff is purely his imagination in overdrive.

I've seen this one badged as a first in series, though it seems to have remained that way for 10 years or more. I'd definitely fancy another rodeo with Banks either as a prequel or sequel.


Decent narration as well from Daniel Dorse.

Thrilling

I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review. .
This is a superb thriller fast paced, tense and gripping right up to the final sentence.
Cops , Feds and the Last Horseman combined to make a nail biting thriller, of the highest quality.
