Vigilante by Robin Parrish

Robin Parrish continues to deliver the goods. His latest, Vigilante is astounding.

Nolan Gray has seen his share of violence and destruction. He has seen what has become of his country. Two wars later, things are becoming worse. Organized crime is running rampant in New York City.

Gray has a plan.

Parrish surprises me with each book. First with his Dominion Trilogy, then came Offworld, Nightmare and now this. With Vigilante, I was zipping through the pages, gasping to keep up with Gray and his ideas to make the world better. Your mind may drift to the Batman movies for just a moment before Parrish yanks you back to an incredible reality.

He has created characters that I was pleading to come to life and appear on the nightly news as a brand new form of hero.

His villain, personified by Crime Lord Yuri Vasko, is so evil he will have you tearing your hair out with anger. Vasko's way of "dealing" with enemies is grotesque. Who wouldn't anticipate a climactic confrontation?

But don't assume too much with this story. Remember, it's Robin Parrish and he will twist your mind!
