    "Killers deserve to win"
    Would you try another book from Robert Wilson and/or Gildart Jackson?

    I'm been a Robert Wilson fan, so I welcomed this book, but perhaps this will be the last one.


    Would you recommend Capital Punishment to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only those with strong stomachs, weak attachment to ethics and compromised humanity. In other words, nobody I know. A protaganist who "cares," but kills, his whining, shouting lady love who accepts the largesse of her ex-husband, the world class villain who owns the world and corrupts all in his reach. An unlucky ingenue whose supposed beauty captivates all men. An assortment of creeps. Almost all ends well after the stage is littered with corpses, and the worst monster turns out to have a heart of gold who funds a foundation to make up for the evil. Yech!!!


    Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is the one bright spot. Wonderful voices and characters.


    Was Capital Punishment worth the listening time?

    Wilson can certainly spin a tale, but this one nauseates.

    Story
    "Realistic,intelligent and exteremly exciting novel"

    Robert Wilson's novels are throughly researched and realistic. I can imagine this happening in actual life and his protagonist is life like with normal problems and abilities. The best seller writers rely on formulas with characters who are like comic book figures that are unbelievable and too heroic to be real. This book deserves a major award, five stars all around.
