Publisher's Description

Nolan Gray is an elite soldier, skilled in all forms of combat. After years fighting on foreign battlefields, witnessing unspeakable evils and atrocities firsthand, a world-weary Nolan returns home to find it just as corrupt as the war zones. Everywhere he looks, there's pain and cruelty. Society is being destroyed by wicked men who don't care who they make suffer or destroy.

Nolan decides to do what no one else can, what no one has ever attempted. He will defend the helpless. He will tear down the wicked. He will wage a one-man war on the heart of man, and he won't stop until the world is the way it should be.

The wicked have had their day. Morality's time has come. In a culture starving for a hero, can one extraordinary man make things right?

    This review was written for Vigilante.
    Vigilante is Robin Parrish at his best. The story centers around war veteran named Nolan Gray. When evil begins to spread out of control, Nolan can no longer sit by and watch while innocent people suffer. Known only as "The Hand" and aided by two trusted friends, he begins his crusade to bring the bad guys down while giving hope back to the people of NYC.

    The book is set in the future, (but not so far into the distant future, I think) and blends a superhero element with a human element. While we get to understand the basic technology that give's Nolan his "superpowers", such as the ability to swing from building to building like spiderman, or the ability to deflect gunfire like superman, and all of the gadgets that Batman is known for, at the end of the day he is just a normal human.

    I truly liked Nolan. He was a man who tried to follow what he thought was God's plan for his life. He didn't always make to right or best choices, because humans rarely do, but he (and please excuse the pun) soldiered on. He is man hoping to make a difference in the world in which he lives, to inspire people to step up and help their neighbors. Here is a character that I believe everyone could relate to on some level.

    I could have done without the scenes where our villain disposes of his enemies, ( to descriptive for me). The story line was fresh well written. I think that anyone looking for something different would like this book.

    This review was written for Vigilante.
    The United States is struggling against crime lords and corruption that is ruining everything that is good. A highly decorated soldier who survived brutal conditions as a POW is ready to show the country "a better way". The Vigilanty is a story of good vs evil. The plot is interesting and kept me turning pages with anticipation to see who would be victorious.

    Robin Parrish always writes stories with interesting premises (though there is one in particular that I did not appreciate), so I was excited to read his latest - Vigilante. Once again, Parrish certainly doesn't disappointed with a cookie-cutter plot or one that has been rehashed too many times in Christian fiction circles.

    Instead he delves straight into the action with a military hero - Nolan Gray - who stages his own death and sets up his own hidden, secret underground lair that he sets out to use to not only enforce his views of justice and righteousness. He also uses this base and his support personnel to wage carefully planned publicity aimed to stir up the general populace to set things aright in a society gone wrong.

    With plenty of super-hero action, high-tech gear, and intrigue, Parrish also manages to add just the lightest hint of romantic interest without it being inappropriate or taking over the storyline. While the story may not provide an open and shut case for any specific position, it does encourage readers to ponder questions of justice, revenge, punishment, and others.

    Like quite a few of Parrish's offerings Vigilante makes a great read for men and anyone who enjoys high-action reads. While holding to the clean writing style of Christian fiction and encouraging readers to think about God, it never bogs down in overt sentimentality or the strongly romantic themes that can often be prominent in the Christian marketplace in general.

    I found it strange, far fetched. I read part of it, decided I was through. Later I read the end and then skimmed the rest of it.

    For a Christian novel, I could find nothing inspiring or satisfying in it.

    This review was written for Vigilante.
    Sometimes you read and book and the whole way through you are just thinking - "Has anyone in Hollywood picked this up to make a movie out of it yet???" Vigilante is one of those books! The entire time I was reading it I felt like I was in the middle of an action hero movie - fast paced, unique characters, evil bad guys, good guys getting misled on their journey and finding their way back. So many twists and turns and some unexpected demises. I actually cried at a couple parts and got mad toward the end when the author made the right choice but I didn't like it (the sign of a good author, not taking the easy way out). This book is so worth moving to the top of your must read pile. I really enjoyed it and hope that maybe the Vigilante comes back for more.
