About the Story

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.

What Other’s Say

“[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!”

— BOOKPAGE.COM

“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.”

— SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER

“[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.

— SUSPENSE MAGAZINE

My Take

I read Dick Wolf’s two novels, “The Intercept” and “The Execution” back-to-back and loved both of them.  The action is non-stop and the pages fly as you read about law enforcement investigations from the perspective of an insider.  I wouldn’t have thought that preventing crime would be as exciting or interesting as the solve-and-apprehend stories, but these certainly are.  I found myself holding my breath as I was reading!  Author Dick Wolf is no stranger to great storytelling and his move from television to print is flawless.  I’m excited to read more and can’t wait for the next Jeremy Fisk novel.  In fact, that would be my only criticism, I would like to see more character development.  Although that is part of the mystique, Mr. Wolf leaves us wanting more.
