Robin Parrish in his new book, “Vigilante”,  published by Bethany House  brings us into a world where a modern hero wants to operate outside of the law.

In the old pulp novels of the thirties and forties the pages were full of heroes who decided the law needed their help to bring down bad guys, dressed up behind a mask and sometimes cape, to provide that help.  Most of those heroes still survive today.  Robin Parrish has brought back this kind of hero in “Vigilante”.  Nolan Gray is a man who has fought for America and is returning home from the battle.  During his time in the army he has seen enough killing and fighting and is ready to put it all behind him.  However things home are different from when he left and he finds corruption and crime have taken over.  The police seem to be helpless to prevent this so Nolan Gray figures out a way to champion the helpless and innocent by bringing down the bad guys.

“Vigilante” is a wonderful blend of Science Fiction and Mystery but at its heart it is a thriller.  Nolan Gray is in real trouble from page one and once he takes on his vigilante persona his danger grows from page to page.  Like the cliffhanger serials he keeps getting into trouble practically every five  pages or so.  Considering that this book is jam-packed with thrills, suspense, deadly situations that you think there is no chance of escape you would wonder if there is room for God.  I assure you Robin Parrish left room for Him as Nolan Gray is trying to be God making himself Judge over mankind and God will not share His position with man.

If I tell you anything more I will spoil the dynamics of this book.  “Vigilante” is so perfectly crafted that it is designed to be devoured and enjoyed by the reader so when you reach the end there is a very satisfied sigh of enjoyment and relief.  “Vigilante” is a book that keeps you guessing from page to page.  Get ready Mr. Parrish has crafted a thrill ride filled with lots of action and suspense.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it.  I recommend this book highly.  It delivers lots of action, suspense and thrills and brings you to a very satisfying conclusion.
