Description

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.

NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk hunts a ruthless assassin working for a cartel in the second installment of Dick Wolf's New York Times bestselling series

When a number of bodies is discovered on the U.S.-Mexico border, each carved with a bizarre hummingbird symbol, Mexican Detective Cecilia Garza recognizes the image immediately. It's the calling card of a killer called Chuparosa, a man both feared and celebrated for his cunning and brutality. Detective Garza has pursued the man for years; she knows he's merciless and she knows he's headed to New York City . . .

It's United Nations Week in Manhattan and Jeremy Fisk--an agent in the NYPD's anti-terror Intelligence Division--can't let grief over a devastating loss keep him from his duty to safeguard the city and the world's most powerful leaders. When he gets news of a mass murder in nearby Rockaway--and the arrival of a beautiful and assertive Mexican detective determined to do things her way--Fisk soon discovers that there's much more to this threat than meets the eye . . . and he will have to learn the hard way that justice is not always blind.

Review quote

"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
