This is a story i enjoyed immensely. Kerry Wilkinson crafted it on a very fascinating premise. Characterization is good, and the story is written in a confident and engaging manner that sucks the reader in until the very end. The plot is amazing and imaginative; and it is graced by a smooth prose and effective dialogue. My second thriller after reading Triple Agent double cross. I like well-written stories with unusual settings that help us learn something new.

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel returns in Vigilante: A Gripping and Twisted Serial Killer Thriller by Kerry Wilkinson. Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel is called to the scene of a stabbing of a convicted felon who has just been released from prison. Soon after, two more criminals recently released from prison are murdered with the same MO. A serial killer is trying to clean up the refuse that the legal system can't keep imprisoned. The strange thing is, all the DNA evidence from the assailant at the crime scenes belongs to a convict who is firmly ensconced in a prison cell. With no other suspects, Jessica is caught in a quandary; DNA doesn't lie, and there is no way that the suspect can be in two places at once. Will she be able to stop the murderer before his sense of justice includes law-abiding citizens? Vigilante is an exciting and perplexing murder mystery. This story has an intriguing twist. The main suspect is already in prison, and the fatalities are convicts. Most of the populace isn't too concerned over the felons' deaths, including members of the department. Jessica wants answers and is determined to catch the murderer, in spite of the victims' unwholesome reputations. She believes the grieving families deserve justice and will do what it takes to get it for them. This breathtaking story is fast-paced and perfect for readers who are fans of suspense-filled thrillers.

DS Daniel certainly has her hands full. Someone is attacking and stabbing teenage boys ..boys who are very well known by the law enforcers. Jessica's boss has no sense of sorrow over these deaths, but it is Jessica that has to talk to the grieving families. Jessica understands the 'why' ... but the real puzzle is the forensic evidence left at the scene of the crimes. Blood DNA, hair follicles, even a partial fingerprint all point to one man .... only this man is in prison and has been for quite a while. Somebody somewhere is lying ... but who? What links all the victims? Jessica faces her toughest case yet .... especially as she doesn't trust those that work closely with her. Well-written, full of twists and turns. I found the story line to be quite riveting as I was trying to follow all the forensic clues. This is second in this series, although it does well as a stand alone. I was pleased to have read the first book in the series ... in VIGILANTE, the reader gets a lot more personal story of Jessica .. what makes her who she is. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who likes police procedural, or a fondness for forensics. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
