    Dr. House vigilante style!!!!

    This book was GREAT!! I REALLY enjoyed it! I litteraly could not put this book down until my eyes got sooo bury I couldn't concentrate properly! If you enjoy action packed vigilante/revenge style reading you'll ABSOLUTELY LOVE this book. Not only is this hero a vigilante he's a survivor of childhood abuse as well as being one of the best doctors around. So if you like the sarcastic & arrogant Dr. House on TV, w/a tiny little love thrown in, then AGAIN you'll ABSOLUTELY LOVE this book!

    Agressive, action packed, with a cause to enlighten the reader to the choices of right and wrong and consequences.

    A heart pounding, action thriller letting you see how people think about crimes against humanity, the flaws of the legal and medical system, why a man becomes obcessed with both and a love triangle, and enlighten the reader awareness of the vast and growing and unreported crimes.

    DR. VIGILANTE is a well-written, fast-paced novel with heart. Ha

    DR. VIGILANTE is a well-written, fast-paced novel with heart. Hazan does a good job building his characters, and their motivations were entirely believable. The story moves at a good pace, and maintained my attention throughout.

    Although fictional, the story highlights several issues rampant in today's society. It's very easy to understand the driving force behind main character Robert's actions. I like how Hazan incorporated facts with the story to drive home that the problems touched upon in the book are real-world issues that don't disappear once the last page is turned.

    One action scene struck me as rather unbelievable by book standards, although it would be standard fare for many movies. Readers sensitive to foul language might find some of the dialogue to be off-putting, but for the most part I found it fitting of the characters. There were also a couple medical scenes bordering on too graphic for my tastes, but they did add to the plot and the author did not embellish them with unnecessary queasy details.

    Overall, I found DR. VIGILANTE to be a very enjoyable read. The storyline was interesting and excellently told.

    Awesome! I loved this book! This book is an exciting, well-writt

    Awesome! I loved this book! This book is an exciting, well-written page turner. I could not put it down. I don't condone violence but I understood why Dr. McKenzie felt a need to right so many wrongs! Dr. McKenzie treats patients in the ER by day and goes after the people who put them in the hospital in the first place, at night. You know, the wife beaters; the child abusers; the rapists; and the racists.Robert was trained in Guerrilla Warfare in Guatemala and does the job that the police can't or won't do. It breaks his heart when a woman dies in the ER from her husband's vicious beating or when he has to treat the innocent children abused by the very people who are supposed to love and protect them. As long as Robert is focused, he stays safe bu then he falls in love with Sharon, the Social Worker. Then the story takes a very unexpected turn! Incredible story!
