Overview

NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk—introduced in Law & Order creator Dick Wolf’s New York Times bestselling debut The Intercept—must stop an assassin in the pay of a shadowy cartel in The Execution, a tense thriller that superbly blends suspense, politics, intrigue and high-flying action in the tradition of Vince Flynn, David Baldacci, and Robert Crais.

Ten days after the Mexican presidential election, twenty-three bodies are discovered beheaded on the United States border, each marked with a carving of a Hummingbird. Detective Cecilia Garza of the Mexican intelligence agency recognizes it: it is the signature of an assassin called Chuparosa. Garza has been pursuing the killer for years, yet knows little about him, except that he’s heading to New York—with the rest of the world.

It’s United Nations Week in Manhattan and Jeremy Fisk can’t let grief over a devastating loss keep him from safeguarding his city. Complicating matters is the startling news of a mass murder in nearby Rockaway—and the arrival of a disturbingly beautiful and assertive Mexican cop.

To have a chance at finding Chuparosa, these uneasy allies must learn to work together and fast. As they soon discover, there’s more to this threat than meets the eye—and that justice is not always blind.

Publishers Weekly
05/12/2014
Wolf's tension-filled follow-up to The Intercept sends NYPD Intelligence Division detective Jeremy Fisk on yet another mission to keep New York City (and perhaps the world) safe from terror. The setting is the controlled chaos of United Nations Week and a highlight meeting between President Obama and the new Mexican president, Umberto Vargas, to sign a treaty. The discovery of 13 decapitated bodies in Rockaway alarms Cecilia Garza of the Policía Federal assigned to Vargas's security detail, because the killings bear the hallmark of the assassin called Chuparosa, who she believes intends to kill Vargas. Fisk, an entertaining lone wolf, and Garza clash frequently as each pursues the best way to protect their respective presidents and thwart the wily Chuparosa, who leaves a growing number of corpses in his wake. Garza and Wolf each have personal agendas that evolve in surprising ways. Wolf delivers a number of interesting twists that keep the action fresh. (Jan.)
Suspense Magazine
“[Wolf] is now putting his stamp in the political thriller genre challenging the likes of Brad Thor and David Baldacci . . . a master storyteller and it shows perfectly in The Execution.
BookPage.com
“[A] gripping adventure . . . Wolf has moved from strength to strength, from his early success as the creator of TV’s Law & Order to his more recent incarnation as novelist. Not to be missed!”
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“A page-turning novel that reads like a compelling episode of the best television has to offer. And like his stories from Law & Order, the novel feels like it could be ripped from the headlines.”
