Publisher's Summary

When a father loses his son to a career criminal, revenge just isn’t enough.
When ex-soldier Tom Gray loses his wife and child to a career criminal, it seems life can’t get much worse. But when the killer is let off with time served on remand, Gray knows there is something fundamentally wrong with the justice system. Engaging the help of his ex-SAS buddies, he kidnaps five repeat offenders and asks the public to vote on their fate: Should they be allowed to continue their criminal ways with inadequate punishment, or has Britain had enough?
His website attracts a worldwide audience and, although the authorities know where he is, they are powerless to stop him.
Can Gray carry out his audacious plan? Will Andrew Harvey and his fellow MI5 operatives find a way to stop him?
Gray Justice is more than a simple tale of revenge: It’s a rollercoaster ride with an ending you’ll never forget.

Thriller Series with the X-Factor?

Well maybe not quite a real X-Factor but if this opening book to the series is anything to go by it's going to offer fast-paced fun without ever really stretching the Gray matter unduly. The shorter than usual format means that there is no time wasted at any point and the plot is fairly novel. It tunes into real-life frustrations often-voiced about the apparent leniency shown to repeat offenders and taps into the modern phenomenon of reality TV.

Of course I would never advocate a public vote to decide if anyone should be punished but I doubt I'll be alone in musing that such a system would be at least as popular if applied to certain reality TV stars and hosts rather than just criminals!

The narration is okay and well-suited to the material, some of the characters, particularly the female ones sounded a bit weak but James Langton kept the pace going and kept the right kind of tone for the material.

So if you fancy a bit of a fun quickie from the thriller department this is not the worst choice in the world. There are some really good plot twists in it that certainly drew a wry grin or two from me. All I would say is that if you are after a detailed thriller with lots of procedural detail or a genuine sense of realism then it's probably best to steer clear.
