Stephen Cannell was really just developing a following. His books were suspenseful and fast moving. Unfortunately, he passed away due to complications from melanoma last September. His final book is being published in December. "Vigilante" brings the return of Detective Shane Scully. When a vocal police critic and gang activist ends up dead, the TV host for the reality tv series Vigilante TV shows up at the scene of the crime with the detectives. The TV host uses misdirection and threats to try to force his way into the investigation. Will he find the killer before Scully? For those who like Robert Parker, Cannell's books are the next best thing.
