Alyshia D’Cruz, daughter of Indian tycoon Frank D’Cruz, has grown up in London and Mumbai wanting for nothing. After a boozy evening out, she gets in the wrong cab home.
Enter Charles Boxer. Ex-army, ex-police, he has found his niche in private security. His specialty: kidnap and recovery. When D’Cruz hires Boxer to find Alyshia, Boxer knows Frank’s crooked business empire has made him plenty of enemies. Despite the vast D’Cruz fortune, the kidnappers don’t want cash, instead favoring a cruel and lethal game. But the British government doesn’t want its big new investor to lose his daughter in the heart of the capital. The MI6 office in India follows Boxer’s lead, and soon it seems more lives than Alyshia’s are at stake as the trail crosses paths with a terrorist plot on British soil.
To save Alyshia, Boxer must dodge religious fanatics, Indian mobsters, and London’s homegrown crime lords. Capital Punishment is a thrilling journey to the dark side of people and places that lie just out of view, waiting for the moment to tear a life apart.
PRAISE FOR ACCLAIMED SUSPENSE WRITER ROBERT WILSON
The Ignorance of Blood
"An exciting, morally complex series . . . It's no wonder Falcón goes about in a constant state of heightened wonderment and suspense, just like readers of Wilson's fast-moving labyrinthine thriller." -- Washington Post
The Hidden Assassins
"The Hidden Assassins, the third Falcón thriller, once again demonstrates that few writers—in any genre—can match Wilson's depth of character and plot or his evocation of place and of history." — Boston Globe
"Modern terrorism is uppermost in the minds of those who populate Robert Wilson’s new novel, but the engines driving The Hidden Assassins through to its satisfying, nuanced finish are old human emotions: greed, obsession, love." — Washington Post Book World
