New thriller in Fisk se­ries a well-crafted page-turner

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - Weekend Life - JEFF AY­ERS

Dick Wolf, cre­ator of the Law & Or­der TV fran­chise, fol­lows his thriller The In­ter­cept with The Ex­e­cu­tion, a page-turn­ing novel that reads like a com­pelling episode of the best TV has to of­fer.

And like his sto­ries from Law & Or­der, the novel feels like it could be ripped from the head­lines.

Com­man­dante Ce­cilia Garza of the Mex­i­can in­tel­li­gence agency has been hunt­ing an elu­sive as­sas­sin known as The Hum­ming­bird (Chu­parosa).

Twenty-three bod­ies are found near the U.S. bor­der, and she knows this killer is re­spon­si­ble.

A tip leads her to another mas­sacre, but her ad­ver­sary is nowhere to be found.

Then she learns he’s headed to Man­hat­tan for United Na­tions Week, a time when the world’s most pow­er­ful lead­ers are in the city.

New York Po­lice Depart­ment De­tec­tive Jeremy Fisk, hero of The In­ter­cept, is still reel­ing from events that al­most killed him.

But even a dev­as­tat­ing loss can- Dick Wolf Wil­liam Mor­row not keep him from his du­ties, and Fisk and his Joint Ter­ror­ism Task Force team are on high alert for the week.

Wolf takes the time to ex­plore what makes peo­ple in law en­force­ment strive to be the best they can be while keep­ing the pace of the story fre­netic.
