What a fun book this was. Once I started it, I read it in about two days, since it is very entertaining and fast-paced enough to keep the readers from getting bored.
There’s a good sense of suspense throughout the novel. Even as we meet and see who the vigilante is, we don’t really know much about him or what makes him do the things he does, so we don’t feel entirely comfortable. Which is exactly the point. He is a nicely done character with different layers that make him fun to read about. The only other really captivating character was Noah, another detective who is a bit of an outcast in the police force. One character I didn’t really understand much and I would have liked to have had her more involved in the story is Eliot’s wife. She appears only a few times with little point to her other than to advance the other character’s actions.
There’s a lot in the book about police procedure which was fascinating to read about since it’s not something that is really as prominent in novels as you’d imagine. I actually wished there was more of it, more details on the day-to-day lives of one or two of the characters, just to give the reader the idea of what’s normal and what’s not in the police force.
I do recommend this one. If you like fast-paced thrillers, then this book just be a good choice for you.
