Jenny Pepper never expected to end up like this. Tired of her job and the domestic grind, and bewildered by her teenage daughter, one night Jenny stumbles into a vigilante rescue. Suddenly her world is exciting again - and she's a hero. In the costume, she can be anyone she wants. And so her secret life begins. But when a real villain appears, Jenny's need for adventure begins to cost her dearly. As she starts to see less and less clearly through the mask, she finds her fantasy life becoming frighteningly real.
We all want to be extraordinary, and we all have a moment in our lives when we realise that we're not. Vigilante is about a woman who refuses to accept it gracefully...
Jenny is a 40ish mum who is bored. Bored with daily life in the bookstore she manages (even though she loves books!). Bored that she and her husband never goes anywhere. Worried about her teenage daughter who is drifting away from her. She is a normal woman, doing normal things.
But then the book takes a turn when she helps someone. And then maybe she could help more? Oh Jenny. Sure, yes good that you saved people, but that is so dangerous. Vigilantism is, oh I am torn. She helps people, but well I do not have to tell you how hurt she can get. The mask wont hell you there.
Then the book took another suspenseful turn as something bad is going on in town.
But, it was a good book. Jenny was just so normal, in a good way, just like anyone of us. Except that she sure makes her own story exciting.
