Capital Punishment: A Thriller

Free sample

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).
