5 stars for The Vigilante and the Dancer by @StephenBKing1 #thriller #suspense #bookreview

Title: The Vigilante and the Dancer

Author: Stephen B. King

Genre: Thriller, Suspense

Book Blurb:

Nicky is sick of the violence he sees while driving a cab in the city. On the night of his brother Simon's eighteenth birthday, a gang senselessly beat him to death, and Nicky hopes to find the men responsible.

Nicky rescued Didi, a dancer, from two attackers, and they became friends as kindred spirits who both suffered a tragedy. But they have secrets. Didi's secret is a daughter, and Nicky's is that he is the Northbridge Vigilante who has killed men as they carried out violent crimes. Nicky's last victim was the brother of a drug dealer, Jimmy Mallory, head of a powerful biker gang.

The city explodes with gang warfare, fighting to control the drugs and nightclubs because of the murder of Mallory's brother. The police are closing in on The Vigilante, but so is Mallory, who will stop at nothing to get revenge.

Nicky has found the love of his life and finally someone to live for if only he can stay out of jail, and survive.

My Review:

I have long loved reading the works of this author. This is a book that didn't disappoint one iota! For the first time in any of these great books, I was totally a fan of the "bad" guy. The Vigilante is one you can cheer and cheer.

There is actually one line in this book that literally had me rolling on the floor and laughing out loud. I dropped my tabby! I won't share it, simply get this book and see if you find the laugh I did.

The romance between Nicky and Didi is simply beautiful. Two lost souls who were swimming in fishbowls but found each other. The pacing and growth of the relationship was simply wonderful to read.

The work of the detective was spot on again. The actual bad guy was superbly bad and very easily hateable. The plot flows in a smooth fashion. The ending of the book will grip the reader with both hands. A fantastic book that is a great addition to the superb work of this author. If you are fan of Stephen B. King, then get this book. If you love a superb crime drama romance, then get this book. A great way to start off the new year with an excellent book.

My Rating: 5 stars

Author Biography:

I left school very early to join a rock band, and spent a few years writing poems, short stories and music. I’ve won two short story writing competitions, had poems published, and enjoyed being a long-haired rock guitarist before life got in the way and I settled down, married and had children. I’ve owned my own businesses and managed large vehicle sales dealerships and observed people from all walks of life. It is these observations which has aided in creating characters.

Among my inspirations to become an author are the other slightly more famous Stephen King, Stieg Larsen, Val McDermid and Leonard Cohen.

Thank you so much for the fantastic review. As always I am humbled when readers enjoy my stories because I can never quite believe I could entertain that much. By the way, I’d love to know what that one line was that was so funny…please let me know.
