The “crackerjack” first thriller in the London-set series featuring kidnap consultant Charles Boxer (TheWall Street Journal).

When the twenty-five-year-old daughter of Indian billionaire Frank D’Cruz is kidnapped, former cop turned private security professional Charles Boxer is charged with getting her back alive.
 
Boxer knows all-too-well how the dark forces in London can reach out and ensnare an innocent victim. He also knows that D’Cruz’s crooked business empire has made him plenty of enemies. But despite the family’s vast fortune, the kidnappers aren’t looking for money. Instead, they favor a crueler, more lethal game that will put many lives at stake as the trail crosses paths with a terrorist plot on British soil.
 
Capital Punishment is a “smart, sophisticated, and twisty thriller” from the award-winning author of A Small Death in Lisbon (Library Journal, starred review).

"Ben Coes' Bloody Sunday is a propulsive read with enough plot hooks, twists, and action to fill five thrillers. Fans of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and Tom Clancy will tear through Bloody Sunday and close the book counting the days till Dewey’s next adventure." —Mark Greaney, New York Times bestselling author of Agent in Place

The latest in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Dewey Andreas series.

North Korea, increasingly isolated from most of the rest of the world, is led by an absolute dictator and a madman with a major goal—he's determined to launch a nuclear attack on the United States. While they have built, and continue to successfully test nuclear bombs, North Korea has yet to develop a ballistic missile with the range necessary to attack America. But their missiles are improving, reaching a point where the U.S. absolutely must respond.

What the U.S. doesn't know is that North Korea has made a deal with Iran. In exchange for effective missiles from Iran, they will trade nuclear triggers and fissionable material. An exchange, if it goes through, that will create two new nuclear powers, both with dangerous plans.

Dewey Andreas, still reeling from recent revelations about his own past, is ready to retire from the CIA. But he's the only available agent with the skills to carry out the CIA's plan to stop North Korea. The plan is to inject a singular designer poison into the head of the North Korean military and in exchange for the nuclear plans, provide him with the one existing dose of the antidote. But it goes awry when Dewey manages to inject a small amount of the poison into himself. Now, to survive, Dewey must get into North Korea and access the antidote and, while there, thwart the nuclear ambitions of both North Korea and Iran. And he has less than 24 hours to do so—in the latest thriller from Ben Coes.
