A lot of people support jungle Justice as a form of checking indiscipline in a nation. They are not satisfied with the regular court proceeding, which is sometimes corrupted. Therefore, they seek Justice. Rogue Justice by Ben Nicholls is a 432-page fictional novel that explores the themes of revenge, media, murder, investigation, and so on.

A murder is committed, followed by a series of murders. Technically, this drew the attention of the investigative team, led by detective Englund and detective Hicks, who were very concerned, as this was not their typical murder case. However, one fortunate clause was that the killer left clues on each of his victims. It is now up to the detectives to decode their meanings. Detective Englund, who had already employed the services of a rookie named Sammy in finding out about the killer, got more enraged when the killer targeted his son, Harry. Read this book to find out who the killer was, his motive, and other exciting secrets in the book.

Using an inorganic plot in a novel could be very stressful, but its end is stunning. The perfect and most essential part would be each scattered part forming a straight, meaningful, and understandable storyline at the end of the book. At first, one may feel bored at how disarranged the plot was, but everything started taking shape towards the ending part of the book. This also helped in a heightened suspenseful feeling. The drive and want to find out the true identity of the murderer would surely keep readers stuck to the book.

The book was highly descriptive. Details of objects and events were properly given, which facilitated imagery. The author also included various figurative devices such as simile and metaphor, making the book more beautiful.

Detective Englund was a brilliant officer. He thinks out of the box, putting himself in the criminal shoes to decipher the killer’s next action. That was admirable. I must still make mention of Detective Hicks. His silence till the very end and ability to hide his true feelings was shocking. Parts of the book were hilarious, such as when the narrator described Victoria’s standard poses and the conversational style of youths nowadays. They were all relatable.

I didn’t particularly appreciate that the book contained too many supporting characters that I felt were unnecessary. It was quite a challenge remembering them all.

Apart from that, the book was superb. Its subtopics matched, and it was fun reading it. Also, I learned some real-life lessons. For these reasons, I am rating the book 4 out of 4 stars. It was also professionally edited, as I encountered only a single error.

I recommend this novel to people that love crime and murder thrillers. Apart from the level of violence and profanity it contained, it would make an excellent read for just anyone.

I don't have a problem with violence if it's part of the story and in a crime thriller some violence can be expected, so this novel seems appealing. Thank you for your great review!
