Imagine youâ€™re an emergency room doctor. Youâ€™ve seen it allâ€”the good, the bad, and the ugly that is humanity. But what tears you apart is the violence visited on the innocent, especially women and children. At first, youâ€™re horrified. Then, you become depressed. And finally, an unquenchable rage consumes you. Time to act.
Dr. Vigilante is a smart, taught medical thriller filled with revenge-worthy characters. Criminals, lowlifes, and abusive spouses. As intelligent readers, we know itâ€™s wrong to answer violence with more violence. Still, itâ€™s damn cathartic when a doctor trained in weapons and martial arts metes out justice like a Gatling gun.
Because the author is a doctor, the emergency-room scenes are filled with hair-raising details that put the reader at the heart of the action. I could almost hear the beeping of the machines and the chatter over the PA system.
If youâ€™re looking for a real adrenaline rush, check out Dr. Vigilante by Alberto Hazan. But be warnedâ€”this story isnâ€™t for the squeamish.
Doctor by day.
Vigilante by night.
Robert lives a double life in New York City. He spends his days treating patients at the St. Judeâ€™s Hospital ER and his nights going after the psychopaths who wrong them: the child molesters, wife beaters, and rapists. But when the fiery, beautiful new social worker discovers his secret identity and their love affair takes off, Robert is forced to face some hard questions:
Do the ends justify the means?
After years of hunting down psychopaths, is Robert turning into one himself?
An action thriller with strong, distinct characters, filled with suspense and surprise, Dr. Vigilante is also a love story unfolding amid the turmoil and drama of a busy ER.
