Review by: Marla Bradeen on Dec. 01, 2013 :
DR. VIGILANTE is a well-written, fast-paced novel with heart. Hazan does a good job building his characters, and their motivations were entirely believable. The story moves at a good pace, and maintained my attention throughout.

Although fictional, the story highlights several issues rampant in today's society. It's very easy to understand the driving force behind main character Robert's actions. I like how Hazan incorporated facts with the story to drive home that the problems touched upon in the book are real-world issues that don't disappear once the last page is turned.

One action scene struck me as rather unbelievable by book standards, although it would be standard fare for many movies. Readers sensitive to foul language might find some of the dialogue to be off-putting, but for the most part I found it fitting of the characters. There were also a couple medical scenes bordering on too graphic for my tastes, but they did add to the plot and the author did not embellish them with unnecessary queasy details.

Overall, I found DR. VIGILANTE to be a very enjoyable read. The storyline was interesting and excellently told.
