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.

As usual Cannell is par for the course.We've got another good story well crafted with well defined characters.

Notable as the last one in the series, with no more to follow due to the author's death.
Not the best in the series, but if you like L.A. cops you will enjoy riding along. I highly reccomend others in the series, don't judge them all by the final entry.

One of the worst books I have ever read. Knew the killer nad motive by page 12. Skip this read. Any other random book will be far better than this.
