You missed it you can find my review of The Killer Inside here While this one was an overall enjoyable read I m afraid there was a bit of a sopho slump here and I can t say I The Carpenters Wife and Heart of Stone liked Vigilante as much as the first bookThe premise was promising I was interested in the idea of a killer who was alreadyocked up How is that even possible It s up to Jessica Daniel to unravel the mystery I was happy to revisit her character as I was a fan of hers after being introduced to her in the first book She s the same old gutsy and ambitious girl who I Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, loved and she has her work cut out for her again This case is full of dead ends and improbable scenarios but all physical evidence points to Dennis McKenna being the killer But how can he possibly be guilty when he s currently serving aife sentence behind barsI think my biggest problem here was that once things started to fall into place and Jess was able to fit puzzle pieces together the explanation was really far fetched It wasn t even a few moments where the reader has to suspend disbelief I actually have no problem doing that it kept reminding me of outlandish soap opera storylines where things are explained by someone coming back from the dead or something similar No that s not exactly what happened here but it s not too far off but as usual I don t want to give away major plot pointsThe saving grace for me was Jess I really The Family Plan like her as aead character and I can t help myself from rooting for her even when she s behaving badly It s her compassionate side that really wins me over she truly cares about her victims families and they are the driving force behind her desire to bring killers to justice Despite my disappointment with this one I m still A Family Practice looking forward to reading of this series It s a massive hit in the UK so I m confident that it only gets better 2nd book in this series Ioved it I A Doctor in Her Stocking (From Here to Maternity love Jessica as a detective She s competent but still is human will make mistakes but that just makes her real Love the side characters also I can t wait to read from this series Why all the fighting when we can thinkIt may be an unpopular opinion but now a days aarge percentage of detective mysteries cum thrillers tends to emphasise on making the problem somehow personal to the protagonist of the story Either their past comes back to haunt them or the killer somehow is related to himher or for some reasons the killer targets our protagonist The plus point about these type of novels is that they are catchy and can create gripping situations to keep us on the edge the result best sellers But the negativity Celebrity Bachelor lies in the familiar taste and repetitiveness If one reads a certain amount of detective thril Wilkinson starts off his second book in the series with an interesting premise A thug is murdered and the blood under his nails belongs to someone already in prison Then two thugs are killed The DCI doesn t really care Scum killing scum isn t a priority today But Jessica is trying to see justice done if only for the families Ioved watch Scum killing scum is not a priority todayBut Jessica wants to see justice being doneAnd so she doesAfter book 1 which I For Better and Worse loved I found this one has really bumped up my belief that Kerry Wilkinson has a pure and natural talentIoved the differing POV in this Kept me glued to one spot I can tell youOnto book 3 45 stars Wow I ve found myself another wonderful go to author This is the fourth Kerry Wilkinson book I ve read in the Cassidys Kids (Maitland Maternity, last couple of months and I am thrilled to have discovered him and his works I wonder what took me soong to find himIn this the second installment of the Jessica Daniel series we are dealing with a serial killer who appears to be picking victims who are shall we say members of society not known for their altruism and community service Hence the moniker Vigilante Though I enjoyed book one of the series this one is definitely a step up Mr Wilkinson has crafted a very clever story that will keep readers guessing to the very end I have to say my finger.
