Summary

A killer behind bars is still killing....

Dead bodies are piling up for Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel. Usually when a serial killer is on the loose, the pressure would be building to find the perpetrator, but the victims are all hardened criminals themselves. The national media can't believe their luck with an apparent vigilante on the streets while Jessica's new boss seems grateful someone else is doing their job for them.

But things aren't so straightforward when forensics matches blood from the apparent killer to a man already behind bars.

An easy listen

This isn't a book to keep u up at night. Not gory or psycho thriller.

Good!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was a good, satisfying ending.

Any additional comments?

This was a good tale. It nipped along at a fast pace and kept me involved. It loses a star because the writing was sloppy at times. On a few occasions, I found myself thinking of how the sentences could have been constructed better.

Hotting Up

What made the experience of listening to Vigilante the most enjoyable?

This is the second book that I have read in the series and the characters really do seem to be coming alive this time.

What other book might you compare Vigilante to, and why?

I have recently 'read' books by Rachel Abbott and Elizabeth Corley and these are definitely of a similar genre and pace. I was fortunate enough to have to drive for around three hours and the journey just flew by.

What about Becky Hindley’s performance did you like?

I must admit that Becky Hindley's accents are slightly annoying, but then the author clearly describes characters from all around the country and to that extent she makes a valiant effort.

suspense with a dash of humour

This is a good detective book. what i really like is that the characters feel very real and you care about them. There is suspense, but it's not gritty- instead, there is some light humour thrown in. This is book 2 in a series and it gives quite a bit away about what happened in the first one, so I recommend that you start with book 1!!
regarding the performance, I found that the person reading it didn't do different voices that well, so it wasn't always clear which character was speaking, but that's just a minor quibble.

Very good

I have really enjoyed this series. The characters are well written and the plots are engaging. I started this series about two months ago and since then I have been hooked. Jessica's character is likeable and easy to relate to. I now eagerly await the new book in the series coming in 2016. would definitely recommend to a friend. voice over also pleasant.

Good Story

As usual a good story. Gets a bit silly at times and far fetched, but none the less a good and enjoyable listen.

Another good yarn

Enjoyed, but read it far too quickly! I like the reader. Another reviewer said that they recognised the story, but I didn't and, as Audible could testify, I've read hundreds! Will now move onto book 3.

Good yarn

Trying new authors can be hit and miss but can honestly say that Kerry Wilkinson is a definite hit with me. Listened to book one of the Jessica Daniel and bought this one immediately after. Becky Hindley had slightly dodgy welsh accent but overall enjoyable. Yes, the story is a bit far fetched but the characters are all well rounded.

A slight improvement on the first book

Thought I'd give this author a second try. Still has unnecessary details. Plot was so contrived and manipulated. Parts were repetitive and tedious.
