Righteous Assassin by Kevin G. Chapman is a fantastic thriller following Detective Mike Stoneman and his peers as they try to hunt down a serial killer who seems to think he is murdering bad guys in the name of God. This clearly insane individual continues monthly killings, leaving the detectives to search high and low for a way to end the deaths for good. As well as bringing up several moral concerns.
Chapman’s writing is great. The characters and story fit a thriller mystery. The interactions between the characters seem rather real and natural. There seems to be no forced chemistry between characters and the issues that they have with one another are realistic.
The story itself is a fascinating mystery. I actually wondered what this villain would actually look like once they found him. The climax of the story is exciting, and I had a hard time putting the book down. If you are a fan of dramatic police stories, you will want to take a look at this book!
