I got this book from Goodreads First Reads. I love Dick Wolf’s television shows like Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Law & Order as well as it’s spin-off shows. I wasn’t totally sure if he could actually be a good author though, some tv writers would not make good book authors. Dick Wolf is one who can write one heck of a book! The Execution was one of the best books I’ve read to date. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the first Jeremy Fisk novel, The Intercept, yet but I look forward to reading it and any other books Mr. Wolf writes.
Jeremy Fisk is an American NYPD Detective who, after 13 beheaded bodies are found, is forced to work with a Mexican Detective Cecilia Garza. In the beginning the two butt heads but in time learn to work together.
Detective Garza is on the hunt in Mexico for a man known as Chuparosa, and is always a step behind. She doesn’t even know what he looks like, but she knows he’s leaving headless bodies in his wake and he’s killing anyone who knows him, including his own family members. Once again, just steps behind Chuparosa, Detective Garza is forced to put the hunt on hold as she protects Mexican President Umbarto Vargas on his trip to America for the United Nations Week. Or so she thinks!
Both detectives believe Chuparosa is in America to kill Mexican President Vargas, little do they know he is after the man who kidnapped and later killed Detective Garza’s mother and sister. Can Garza stop herself from killing the man who stole her family? Can Fisk stop from killing the man who murdered his girlfriend?
Read this book for a face paced book that is well worth the read. If you like Law & Order, Chicago Fire or Chicago PD then you will love this book! A thriller that will keep you turning the pages unable to put the book down.
