The Execution | [Dick Wolf]

The Execution

NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk hunts an assassin working for a shadowy cartel in this action-charged second installment of Dick Wolf's New York Times best-selling series, a masterful thriller that blends politics, intrigue, and twisting suspense. A number of bodies are discovered on the United States' border with Mexico, each carved with a bizarre symbol: a hummingbird. Detective Cecilia Garza, dubbed the Ice Queen among her colleagues at the Mexican intelligence agency because she's famous for never showing an ounce of weakness, arrives at the scene and recognizes the image immediately; it is the calling card of a killer called Chuparosa.

Publisher's Summary

NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk hunts an assassin working for a shadowy cartel in this action-charged second installment of Dick Wolf's New York Times best-selling series, a masterful thriller that blends politics, intrigue, and twisting suspense.

A number of bodies are discovered on the United States' border with Mexico, each carved with a bizarre symbol: a hummingbird. Detective Cecilia Garza, dubbed the Ice Queen among her colleagues at the Mexican intelligence agency because she's famous for never showing an ounce of weakness, arrives at the scene and recognizes the image immediately; it is the calling card of a killer called Chuparosa, a man both feared and celebrated for his cunning and brutality. Known to be incorruptible in a seemingly lawless land, Detective Garza has pursued this killer for years, yet knows little about him, except that he's merciless and heading to New York City, along with the rest of the world.

It's United Nations Week in Manhattan and Jeremy Fisk, an integral member of the NYPD's Intelligence Division, an antiterror unit modeled on the CIA, let his grief over a devastating loss keep him from his duty to safeguard the city and the world's most powerful leaders. Complicating matters is the startling news of a mass murder on the beach in nearby Rockaway and the arrival of a beautiful and assertive Mexican detective determined to do things her way.

To have a chance at finding and stopping Chuparosa, these uneasy allies must meld their opposing investigative styles. They soon discover that there's much more to this threat than meets the eye, and Fisk will have to learn the hard way that justice is not always blind.

    This book badly needs an editor, or a better one. The author is obsessed with describing everything around the protagonists to the point of absurdity, interrupting the flow of the story so that it is impossible to follow. He also does this in the form of digressions that make little sense. I will not give away anything if I note that close to the beginning here is a prolonged shootout, but it is interrupted by a completely superfluous memory flashback that is irritating and infuriating. Perhaps reading this one could skip easily, but that is harder to do with an audiobook. I finally became so frustrated with the pedantic descriptions and the interruptions of the narrative that i gave up.

    "Bad, really bad!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this book would have been written like he writes his TV shows.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dick Wolf again?

    No. I gave it 2 hours to pull me into the story. Those 2 hours are 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. I love Dick Wolf's TV shows. This book is too detailed.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Ganim?

    Will Patton

    "Wish the pacing of the performance was more varied"
    Would you try another book from Dick Wolf and/or Peter Ganim?

    Wolf's first book had a great premiss and twist. I hope his third one will be back up there.


    Would you recommend The Execution to your friends? Why or why not?

    Performance doesn't bring out the tempo of the writing. And the plotting is just okay.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Peter Ganim?

    No
