His beloved twin dead, his future destroyed, Lucas forms a “vigilante posse” to take revenge on the gang members responsible. Can his new love, and his sister’s voice from beyond death, stop Lucas from self-destruction? 

Although he’s the class clown, Lucas has charm, looks, athletic prowess, and a scholarship that will mean a bright future. That is, until the night he and his beloved twin, Silver, drive into the middle of a gang ritual on a California beach road. Waking from a coma to learn that Silver is dead, and his body and dreams shattered, Lucas turns to revenge. Then, Silver appears, crossing the line between life and death to try to save her brother. The new girl in his neighborhood can see Silver too, and shares her fears. But their love isn’t enough to stop Lucas’s posse of “vigilantes” from an act of stunning violence that marks him for murder. Can Lucas face the truth about what he’s become, and about Silver’s hidden past, or is it too late?


 “The premise of Vigilante Nights is absolutely fascinating. It's part contemporary urban street gang, part ghost story, part haunting journey from grief to hope. An action-packed second half should appeal to readers who enjoy urban thrillers with a hint of supernatural.” ~YA Books Central 

“Richards’ keeps the paranormal aspect of the story subtle, adding to its mystery and tension.” ~Publishers Weekly 

"I was pleasantly surprised to find that I couldn't put it down. This turned out to be, essentially, a nicely paced thriller with some lightweight supernatural elements." ~Nathan Barker, Kayleighbug Books (Goodreads Review) 

"Vigilante Nights thrusts readers headlong into a powerful journey for redemption, revenge and, ultimately, peace. Vigilante Nights doesn't lack tension or drama either. It's a classic whodunit tale, but the twists and turns threw me for a loop every time." ~Melissa, I Swim for Oceans Blog
