Vigilante
Stephen Cannell

In the last novel by acclaimed producer and New York Times bestselling author Stephen J. Cannell, LAPD detective Shane Scully and his partner Sumner Hitchens investigate a crime with ties to the sometimes violent world of reality TV

Lita Mendez was a thorn in the LAPD's side. An aggressive police critic and gang activist, she'd filed countless complaints against the department. So when she's found dead in her home, Detective Scully and his partner Hitchens fear the worst: that there's a killer in their ranks.

Outside the crime scene, Nixon Nash and his television crew have set up shop. Nash is the charismatic host of a hit reality show called "Vigilante TV," dedicated to beating the cops at their own game: solving murders before they can. Now he has the murder of Lita Mendez in his sights. He presents the detectives with a choice: either join his team, or prepare for a public takedown.

But Scully knows that Nash isn't the folk-hero he seems. He will do anything in the name of self-promotion. If a detective got in his way, would he be prepared to kill? In this new novel, Scully will have to risk everything save himself and the job he loves.

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

"Cannell knows how to cut to the chase."

The New York Times

Lita Mendez has always been a thorn in the LAPD's side. An outspoken police critic and gang activist, she'd filed countless complaints against the department. So when she's found dead in her home, Detective Scully and his partner Hitchens fear the worst: that there's a killer in their ranks. And nowthat chilling possibility is about to become a reality...television show.

"Cannell's sturdy just-the-facts style and intimate knowledge of L.A. police procedures unflinchingly ring true." ―Publishers Weekly

Outside the crime scene, acamera crew has set up shop. Hosted by the charismatic Nixon Nash, "Vigilante TV" is dedicated to beating the cops at their own game: solving murders before they can. Scully knows that Nash will do anything in the name of self-promotion. But would he kill for killer ratings? Either way, Scully's not ready for his close-up. Not when the cameras are zooming in, his career is on the line, and the final credits are about to roll...

"In his valedictory case, LAPD Detective Shane Scully finds real danger in the dubious world of reality TV...Well plotted and smartly paced. Scully goes out a winner."

Kirkus Reviews
