In the book “Nothing Good is Free” by Matthew R. Horn, we learn that being a vigilante is not easy. Jeff Scott has to rely on the secret information given to him by Martell, a detective with the Chicago Police Department (CPD) to stay one step ahead of the police force. But the real problem is the death of Jim, his mentor and ex-Marine, who donned a mask and a suit and rid the city of its most notorious crimes. But Jim’s body was found in the basement of a drug dealer’s house. Now that Jeff has taken Jim’s place, things seem even stranger. Will Jim find out about the CPD’s 22-year-old cover-up of traceable drugs? Is Jeff being used as a pawn in the CPD’s covert, masterful game?

“Nothing Good is Free” felt like the classic crime fighting stories I used to watch on TV. But it was different. I liked the modern elements of a corrupt police force, the power of the media and real-world relationship issues. The tension and pace kept you in suspense. Horn did a great job of creating believable characters. I appreciated the pivotal details of Jim’s background in Desert Storm, Brook’s human resources career, etc. Of course, Jeff was the quintessential guy next door who wanted to do the right thing and save the world. This book was a sequel to “The Good Fight.” “Nothing Good is Free” is highly recommended.
