Overview

Death. Lies. Revenge. How far would you go to protect your family? PI Kate Jones lands a case that changes everything: a young college student with no history of drug abuse dies of an overdose, and the parents come to Kate demanding answers. Soon, Seattle is reeling from dozens more deaths, all with the same chemical markers.

At first, police assume that the victims are closet junkies who got a hold of a bad combination, but after someone close to her becomes a victim, Kate believes something far more sinister is going on. The deeper Kate digs, the more she uncovers about the deadly drug's origins, forcing her to choose between doing what's right... and getting revenge.

About the Author

DV Berkom is the award-winning author of two action-packed thriller series featuring strong female leads (Leine Basso and Kate Jones). Her love of creating resilient, kick-ass women characters stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those pages.

Raised in the Midwest, she earned a BA in political science from the University of Minnesota and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and a multitude of adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. The Kate Jones adventure thriller, Bad Spirits, was first published in 2010 as an online serial, and was immediately popular with eBook fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso thriller series in early 2012 with Serial Date. Now, she tries to give equal time to both Kate's and Leine's stories, a must for her (happily) impatient readers.

DV currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with the love of her life, Mark, a chef-turned-contractor, and several imaginary characters who like to tell her what to do. Her most recent books include Vigilante Dead, A Killing Truth, Cargo, The Body Market, A One Way Ticket to Dead, and Yucatán Dead.

Vigilante Dead A great read with a thrilling plot. The character, Kate Jones, is a strong, independent, tough woman. In this story she found even more strength and was able to fight all her demons and be willing to be alone when all was complete. The way DV Berkom merged past info about the min character, Kate Jones, into the current plot was a perfect combination of past and present. She made it so easy to remember all I needed to about characters from previous books. The new plot, the adventure, the drama is so unique. I was intrigued from the beginning and my interest held until the end. As always, when reading a DV Berkom book, the end leaves you wanting more and looking forward to the next book and the next stage of Kate's life.

Vigilante Dead is another suspenseful book by DV Berkom. If you haven't read her previous novels in this series, I suggest you do! They are all full of suspense and twists, and keeps you reading into the weee hours.. Reading her other books will give you a better understanding of her main character Kate. I read all the books in the series this summer and couldn't wait for Vigilante Dead to be completed. An awesome read!

Wow, this was a definite winner by Berkhom, it grabs your interest from the first. Readers will love this story as well as the series.

or a strong female protagonist and a high octane thriller, look no further! Every time I think DV Berkom can’t make a Kate Jones Thriller even more thrilling, she puts out a story like Vigilante Dead. Kate has been running from her past for a long time, but now she has settled down. She is a private investigator and has a gorgeous man, Sam, at her side. He is a super guy who gives her space and time when she needs it and some lovin’ when she needs that. When her sister ODs, the hunt is on… Drugs, murder, vengeance… I love books that make me think of our life choices. We all march to our own drummer and who knows what will work if we don’t explore our options. BUT, sometimes we get off course and the road we walk takes us down a dark and dangerous path. So does Kate. Kate grows more complex with each story told, but danger follows her through each and every one. This time, D took her somewhere that totally blew my mind. Sometimes the character demands that you go there, go where the bad guy goes to get your answers. DV Berkom’s characters are strong and bold, and sometimes I think they need to have a little more fear. I worry for them. Every time Kate went creeping around, staking out places, I waited for the hammer to fall. I do love that she does things I only think about. Kate fights the lows that wash over her when she thinks of all she has been through and lost by making mistakes in her youth. They left her with nightmares. Her rash actions and decisions can get her in difficult and dangerous situations. Kate’s family p***** me off! and her wimpy dad is a huge disappointment to me. Am I being too harsh? You will need to decide. And Angie, a bad*** assassin, you are a woman after my own heart, until… You make a deal with the devil and you get burned. I cannot quit reading, not for a second. I cannot wait to learn the ending of Vigilante Dead…thoughts are running through my mind, fed by the title. I am loving and hating what I am thinking. The twists and turns DV Berkom has supplied in Vigilante Dead has ratcheted the suspense and my anticipation to a white knuckled, nail biting level. With all that is happening I am wondering where DV Berkom will leave Kate. I am mentally yelling at her…DON’T DO IT!!!!! Yet the little devil whispering on my shoulder says…
