Overview

Vigilante: Montreal . . . the long, hot summer of 1996. . .

. . . and in the dark of night, moving like a shadowy wraith, a vigilante prowls the city's streets.

The targets of his bloody rampage: the worst of the worst.

Murderers. Gangbangers. Rapists.

Six months. Sixteen murders. The harried police are still without a clue . . .

. . . until the day they receive an email from the assassin himself.

Lieutenant Dave McCall, head of Montreal's Special Homicide Task Force, needs help to crack the secrets of the killer's taunting message. He calls on an expert--Chris Barry, who runs a security firm specializing in computer communications.

Together, McCall and Barry launch a grim quest to track down a man who preys on predators--an urgent quest to bring this remorseless killer to justice.

But whose justice will prevail: theirs--or the vigilante's?

The Consultant: The friendly takeover of CSS Inc. leaves computer executive Chris Barry unemployed, very wealthy and pleased with the situation.

But the hiatus is short-lived...

As a result of his involvement in the recent Vigilante investigation, Barry is approached by Jonathan Addley and invited to join Discreet Activities, a government agency of the clandestine variety,

Accepting, he promptly takes on his first assignment under the guise of an IT consultant, to investigate possible links between a local import business and the murder of its MIS director.

As he discovers the firm is being used to import narcotics, his cover is blown and things get personal, spurring him to show that murderers, drug lords, biker gangs and kidnappers are no match for...

Meet the Author

I was born in Montreal, Canada, where I still reside with my spouse, Joanne. I completed my studies in human resources, accounting and management at McGill University and worked in various management capacities in the fields of HR and finance for a handful of firms for what seemed like decades, because it was. I should also mention I love pizza, but who doesn't and, in my opinion, nothing rocks more than cooking on the grill.My first stab at writing was in 1995, the result being my first novel, Vigilante. This was subsequently followed by The Consultant (1996) and Mind Games (1997), all of the same series. All three have since been revised and edited about a thousand times. Professional obligations and other creative interests led me away from writing for a number of years but I found myself busy at the keyboard in 2009 with The Homeless Killer right after having finally published my first three novels. I then followed up with 6 Hours 42 Minutes in 2011, also part of the Barry/McCall Series born from Vigilante. In July 2011, I released ASYLUM, my first stand-alone novel and Discreet Activities, my sixth Barry/McCall crime thriller was published in January 2012. I think I'm really starting to like this writing thing.Besides writing, editing and promoting my work, I also spend some artistic energy with my five guitars, oil paints and watercolours. Other passions include cooking (big time with fine wine to go with it, of course), reading, traveling and working out just enough to stay fit. It should also be noted that following several years of practice, I now excel at being cat furniture for Krystalle and Midnight, or so they tell me.

    When a serial killer stalks Montreal, instead of fearing him, they cheer him, because he only kills bad guys. No one cares that he is removing scum from the earth. Still, as a detective, Dave McCall has to find the killer so he enlists a local computer guru, Chris Barry to aid him as he works. 




    This book has so many twists and turns that it will keep you guessing until the end. At first, it seems to be a simple mystery, but then there is another twist. The characters are well developed, but the addition of unnamed characters’ background makes it difficult to connect the past to the current activities. Since the definition of a good mystery is that you do not know ‘who-done-it’ until the end, then, this is a good mystery. I would recommend it to people who appreciate a book for it is intellectual nuances rather than non-stop action.

    Duo #1 Claude Bouchard: Vigilante/The Consultant

    Vigilante (Claude Bouchard)

    Set in Montreal Lieutenant Dave McCall, the head of the special task force is on a mission to find a killer. This killer calls himself the "Vigilante" and he kills those who he feels deserved to die. He targets murderers, rapists, the meanest killers around.

    He teams up with Chris Barry who runs a security firm in computer communications. He is an expert in the computer field. Together they try to stay a step ahead of this killer and try to bring him down before he strikes again,

    Fast paced thriller. I look forward to reading the next in the series:
    The Consultant.

    The Consultant (Claude Bouchard)

    Chris Barry is back in this second (Vigilante) series. He is unemployed and very wealthy. Not sure what he is going to do with all his free time, he is approached by Jonathan Addley (A Government worker). He is asked to go undercover as an IT guy to help to see if there is a connection in the murder of an MIS director.

    Soon he finds out that a the firm is a cover for a big drug smuggling ring, and Chris is right in the middle, his life is in danger. It is a race for time to catch the "bad guys" and stop this drug Lord from succeeding.

    Fast pace suspense. I look forward to the next in the series Mind Games. Claude Bouchard knows how to bring his characters to life and keep the reader on the edge of his/her seat.
