Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Dr. Vigilante

Doctor by day. Vigilante by night. Robert lives a double life in New York City. He spends his days treating patients at the St. Jude'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.

Tortured and beaten by his stepfather as a child, he watched as his mother was also beaten and tortured, and his brother raped by his stepfather. Now an adult, he saves lives in the ER during the day and hunts psychopaths at night. During the first quarter of the book we don’t know which doctor he is until a new social worker captures his heart and discovers his secret identity. The police are after the Manhattan Vigilante because he mains and tortures criminals. He knows how to hurt the bad guys medically, and doesn’t hesitate. Using his medical skills and karate, he disables hoodlums within seconds. But the social worker loves him, and wants to help cure him of his obsession, while the police secretly admire him. “Criminals can be rehabilitated,” the social worker tells him. “Let him do what he’s doing,” the detective says. In the end will he choose love or continue his hatred for psychopaths?

This was page-turner from the beginning, and I finished it in one day. We see the tortured man who has all the skills, to both save lives and kill, as he struggles to help the victims and destroy the evil. There is little plot, as he merely goes after those men who abuse their wives and children. But halfway into the book neo-Nazis become the central target for his fight and causes him the most grief. They discover his social worker girlfriend and target her to get to him. This is not a story based on plot, but characters, and lots of action. Highly recommended for the action lover.
