Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Lita Mendez was a thorn in the LAPD's side. An aggressive police critic and gang activist, she?d filed countless complaints against the department. So when she's found dead in her home, Shane and Hitch fear the worst: that there's a killer in their ranks. Outside the crime scene, Nixon Nash, the charismatic host of a hit reality show called Vigilante TV, has set up shop with his television crew. Nash's show is dedicated to beating the cops at their own game, solving murders before they can. Now he has the murder of Lita Mendez in his sights and he presents the detectives with a choice: either join his team or prepare for a public takedown. But Scully suspects that Nash isn't the folk hero he seems. If a detective got in his way, just how far would the TV host go in the name of self-promotion? On the heels of The Prostitutes? Ball, called ?the best Scully yet? (Kirkus Reviews) and ?perfectly fresh? (Booklist), this new novel from the celebrated author has Detective Scully risking everything to save himself, his family, and the job he loves. Praise for Stephen J. Cannell ?A master storyteller.? ?Michael Connelly A great storyteller who keeps you nailed to the page.? ?Ted Bell Cannell is the gold in crime fiction.? ?Stephen Coonts

About the author

Biography of Cannell, Stephen J.

Stephen J. Cannell was born in Los Angeles, California on February 5, 1941. He was dyslexic and struggled through school. After graduating from the University of Oregon, he drove a truck for his father's home-decorating business and wrote TV scripts at night and on the weekends. His first writing successes were story ideas sold to Mission Impossible. Four years later, he sold a script for It Takes a Thief. In 1966 a script he submitted for Adam 12 so impressed the producers at Universal that they offered him the position of head writer.

At Universal he wrote and helped create several TV shows including The Rockford Files, Baretta, and Baa Baa Black Sheep. He started his own production company in 1979, generating The A-Team, Riptide, Hunter, and 21 Jump Street. Other credits include Wiseguy, Renegade, and Silk Stalkings. He has scripted over 1,500 TV episodes and created or co-created over 40 programs. His first novel, The Plan, was published in 1995. During his lifetime, he wrote more than 15 novels including Final Victim, King Con, and the Shane Scully series. He died of complications associated with melanoma on September 30, 2010 at the age of 69.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-07-01)

Alas, thriller fans, this is the final work from Cannell after his death in September 2010. When Lita Menendez is found dead in her home, LAPD's Shane Scully is pretty anxious. Activist Menendez frequently criticized the police, and now he wonders whether some rogue cop has taken revenge. What's worse, the host of Vigilante TV, a top-rated reality show that aims to solve cases before the police do, is parked on Menendez's doorstep. Expect lots of interest in Cannell's good-bye.
