More character building with the main characters, with more depth. Suitably venial bad guys and the 'underground government group' scenario was handled with a light touch. Good pacing and the writing in this second book flowed better.
My only criticism of the characterization would be that the author has some difficulty writing well defined women characters, even when they are given a fairly important role in the storyline. They have the feel of a stock character to me still. I also felt that he depended on the main character dropping some of his extreme caution for the plot to work, which did not seem particularly plausible to me, after the emphasis on caution in the first book.
I'm hooked on Claude Bouchards writing. I read "Vigilante" and loved it. I then bought the second book in the series--"The Consultant." and was not disappointed.
Being Canadian, I love that these books are situated in Canada (Yeah Canada!!)--but aside from that Bouchard's writing is masterful. I have read a lot of murder/mystery/action/adventure/ conspiracy books written by big name writers and Bouchard does not take a back seat to any of them!!
Chris Barry is a smart, creative, tough man that no one would want for an enemy--as you discover in "Vigilante". But in "The Consultant" he proved that he was willing to work on the `right' side of the law--if he wasn't pushed. But when he was, he became as lethal as he needed to be to get the job done.
I really get off on Chris and his wife, Sandy's, relationship; the understanding and support that she gives him as well as the undeniable love that they share.
Johnathan Addley was an exciting partner for Chris Barry in this book. I liked the way they interacted, even though they didn't know each other well.
Dave McCall and his wife Cathy and Chris Barry and his wife Sandy have a wonderful friendship; but Dave and his wife have no idea about the secrets that Chris and Sandy share. Could they handle it if they really knew?
I'll be reading the next book in this series with great anticipation! I'm sure Bouchard will not disappoint me.
As I had figured out at the ending of first novel the actual identity of the Vigilante, it leaves me with the question of if it is OK to have a serial killer, probably known to the police, as the "Hero" regardless of his motives and the actions and the lifestyles of his victims.
I also question why this book is listed as in the "Barry/McCall" series. McCall is only a very minor character in this book and really has nothing to do with investigating or solving any crimes at all.
Technically the book is much better edited than the first one with only a couple of minor typos that didn't interfere with the reading but the same horrible formatting problems exist with the Kindle eBook edition as did in the first one. For some reason it took until the third Kindle eBook in Tom Lowe's Sean O'Brien series to straighten out the formatting so we'll have to wait and see what happens with the third one in this series!
And I most definitely intend to read "Mind Games" and probably the rest of the series.

Well written and the character development was very good.
Nice twist at the end!
Writing still a bit clunky at times, not a superbly sophisticated work of literature. But very entertaining and had several twists and turns that definitely held my interest. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ben S
Love this series so far! Book 1 was absolutely stunning. I like to break between series and not read all at once. About ready to start book 3. I love the concept.Published 3 months ago by Steel

Claude Bouchard surpassed his original Vigilante with the second in the series, The Consultant. Nonstop riveting action from start to finish The Consultant is a must read.Published 5 months ago by Raymond K. Dobson
