The town of Vanguard is under attack and a Vigilare is determined to guard and protect its citizens, as the justice system appears to be failing them. Detective Gina DeLuca and her partner, Detective Tony Gronkowski, are inundated with crime scenes where the victims are so-called reformed rapists, molesters and pedophiles.

Many citizens applaud the vigilante justice, while the police are baffled by the lack of clues. Police Department psychologist Dr. Patricia Ryan seems to be the one link, as all the victims were her clients. After a young law student is attacked, another dimension is added to the mix ... reports of the Vigilare having eyes that sparkle emerald green. When the Vigilare is encountered at a crime scene, the identity will surprise everyone. How will the justice system handle someone working to protect those that the system has failed? Is an eye for an eye a valid defense? And who is the Vigilare ... and how did they come to exist? The answers may surprise you.

This is the second book, the first in a trilogy, for the talented Brooklyn James. Even though the title character has superhuman powers, this is not overtly a paranormal story. The detailed descriptions, well-developed characters and unexpected twists will keep you thoroughly engaged and anticipating the sequels. While this is a departure from her debut, The Boots My Mother Gave Me, James' versatility demonstrates that she has a bright future ahead of her. Viva Vigilare!
