The world is controlled by evil men, crime lords that have no limit to the pain and and agony they are willing to inflict on the innocent. Everyday citizens live in a state of fear, with no hope of positive change coming anytime soon. Is there anyone or anything out there to rescue and bring light to the darkness overshadowing all of mankind?
Nolan Gray, the most highly decorated soldier in American war history, has been killed. Can the U.S. take anymore? Gray, a symbol of heroism, taken down. Another sign of defeat and despair.
However, Gray has faked his murder only to become "The Hand" to SHOW EVERYONE A BETTER WAY. Gray, with the help of Branford, an old military buddy, and Arjay, a genius at making high-tech weaponry and gadgets, takes on crime in New York City. His vision is that his mission will change the hearts of people, reviving hope that crime is not the way to live and that there is a better way. Along the way, Gray and his team make an enemy of Yuri Vasko, the most powerful crime lord in New York City, and the battle is on.
This is the first book of Robin Parrish's that I have read and it was worth the time. It is a fast-paced, adrenalin-rushing, action thriller. The short chapters keep you turning pages until the satisfying ending is reached. Parrish has created a crime fighter in Nolan Gray that you can relate to in his humanity, as he is passionately seeking justice one minute and battling his own will and desire for vengeance the next. He was a real person with real personal demons that haunt him from the past.
Parrish has done well with Vigilante and I look forward to my next read by this gifted writer.
(I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.)
