Vigilante by Robin Parrish

Nolan Gray is an elite soldier, skilled in all forms of combat. After years fighting on foreign battlefields, witnessing unspeakable evils and atrocities firsthand, a world-weary Nolan returns home to find it just as corrupt as the war zones. Everywhere he looks, there's pain and cruelty. Society is being destroyed by wicked men who don't care who they make suffer or destroy.

Nolan decides to do what no one else can, what no one has ever attempted. He will defend the helpless. He will tear down the wicked. He will wage a one-man war on the heart of man, and he won't stop until the world is the way it should be.

The wicked have had their day. Morality's time has come. In a culture starving for a hero, can one extraordinary man make things right?

My thoughts...

When I selected this book I had no idea it was a story about a superhero. I put it off til the last minute to read. Imagine my surprise when I discovered this to be a suspenseful, explosive, thriller that held my interest from the beginning!

Good entertainment yet thought provoking. Questions about justice arise and I thought Parrish answered it perfectly. There are numerous violence scenes throughout.

The book is about organized crime, corrupt police officers, families that are destroyed, the evil devour whatever they want, all hope is lost. Who will help? One man takes on the responsibility, a man with incredible faith and a desire to be an example of goodness and show love to the world. Nolan Gray is that man. He begins the fight to change the world.

I found it to be a compelling story and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
