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.
Walter Olson (founder, President & CEO) and Chris Barry (EVP & COO) have sold their shares of CSS to CompuCorp. Walter is ready to retire & Chris decides to retire as well, a very wealthy man in his mid-thirties. He can spend his days & nights with his wife, Sandy.
Lieutenant Dave McCall is now Captain McCall. He and his wife, Cathy, are friends to Chris & Sandy (the two couples met at the end of "VIGILANTE").
During his last week of employment at what is now CompuCorp, Jonathan Addley (Director of Police Relations employed by the federal government's Ministry of Defence) visits Chris. Besides his duties at the Ministry of Defence, Jonathan is responsible for an elite division that has no name but is referred to as "Discreet Activities". This division works with similar divisions in other companies.
Jonathan tells Chris a story about how the real vigilante could not have been Carl Denver (he committed suicide because he had embezzled six million dollars). When he was faced with an accusation, he jumped to his death and the vigilante murders were pinned on him (dead men tell no tales). A witness (Mrs. Denver) has come forward with information that her husband could not be the serial killer, he had alibis for most of the murders and there is proof -- AND she admits that he had embezzled the six million dollars -- but the money is now missing (it was supposed to be in a bank account in the Cayman Islands, but it's not there when Mrs. Denver goes to the bank). Now she is broke and has no place to go...
The Consultant is a brilliant continuation of the "Vigilante Series". The author grabs your attention from the beginning of the story and keeps you reading. This book was a real page-turner and had enough twists & turns to keep you guessing -- right to the end! I read this book in a couple of hours and enjoyed it immensely. I am interested in the main characters and cannot wait to see what happens next. You REALLY have to pay attention, I kept re-reading sections so I could better understand the "who, what, when, where & how". I am starting the next book in the series "MIND GAMES" now...
I HIGHLY recommend this book! Please read "VIGILANTE" by Claude Bouchard for the beginning of this series.
Please Note: I try to write reviews without spoilers to ruin the story because I want people to be interested in reading the book -- and I HATE reviewers who think they need to dissect an entire book, ruining it for those who have yet to read it. There are very few errors in the book.
Just a Thought: A lot of people complain because Mr. Bouchard uses the word "anyways" instead of "anyway". If it bugs you that much, just read it as "anyway" -- some people actually DO say "anyways" (obviously).
