Kurt Stevens is the commissioned executioner for the state of Ohio. He holds the one job most protested over and receives death threats on a daily basis. He lives his life in a regimented way, needing the order to deal with the stress of his job. As the husband of Tanya and the father of Michael, Kurt fiercely loves his family. When Kurt finds Tanya dead, he knows the police will consider him the killer from the outset of the investigation. Going on the run, he’s got to make a connection to underworld elements to discover the truth and get justice for his wife. CAPITAL OFFENSE is an interesting investigation into the psyche and the nature of justice. The author has created a character in Kurt who is sympathetic and yet strange. I enjoyed the story very much and I don’t want to say too much more because I don’t want to give anything away. Pick up CAPITAL OFFENSE and enjoy!

Thriller of a book, yes! From the very beginning I was curious, like all the murder mystery the first suspect is the spouse; however Kurt spiraling search encounters a bigger picture. Kurt took me on a ride through the seedy side of town, how he got there was the exciting part and who do you trust? Kurt the commissioned executioner now faces the challenge of finding out who is responsible for his wife death. I was caught off guard by this one, I mean I had a hunch but the author squashed my hunch to bits, just saying:) Kurt got in all kinds of dilemma and by doing so he involved his only friend Gregg. The author took me in one direction then steered me in another direction and again another direction that left me baffled. This caused me to read on and enjoy this thriller. A name was mentioned that I have not heard for ions, "Kojak" Telly Savalas NYPD detective lieutenant 1973-78, the bald lollipop sucking detective, wow blast from the past. This story was not corny like the Kojak series, it was simply a thriller to read. Won this book on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway." Thank you Darlene Cruz
