Review

Like most of Wilson's novels, this one occupies the shadow territory between the crime novel and the intelligent thriller... it's dark and powerful stuff. And the ending has a kick like a horse. (Andrew Taylor THE SPECTATOR 2013-02-09)

Fast-moving and breathlessly exciting, this is the first of a series to feature Charles Boxer from award-winning author Robert Wilson. (Myles McWeeney IRISH INDEPENDENT 2013-02-02)

Gripping from start to finish, this intricately plotted page-turner will keep you transfixed. (CHOICE 2013-02-01)

Absolutely brilliant. (PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH 2013-01-26)

Full of action and tension, a guaranteed great read from this CWA Gold Dagger winning author. (LOVEREADING.COM 2013-01-17)

Wilson blends psychological intensity, constant action with a brilliantly intricate plot that will leave you gasping after the final page. (BITE THE BOOK)

[Robert Wilson's] hotter than ever... One killer of a crime caper. (NORTHERN ECHO)

'"If you like dense, complex and internationally widespread thrillers, then Capital

Punishment is for you... Unputdownable."'

(MYSTERY WOMEN)

Featuring a large cast of well-sketched players and a plethora of plot twists, "Capital Punishment" shifts scenes briskly from London to Lisbon, Mumbai to Lahore. Mr. Wilson writes with elegant vigor as he describes the shoot-outs and emotional crescendos that result from the political and criminal intrigue at the heart of the book. (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL)

A genuine thriller and the first in a new series, CAPITAL PUNISHMENT is one of the best books in the genre to come along at the start of a new year... A brilliant beginning for what is sure to be a very exciting and worthwhile series indeed. (REVIEWINGTHEEVIDENCE.COM)

A gripping and unsettling read (GOOD BOOK GUIDE)

Crackerjack . . . Featuring a large cast of well-sketched players and a plethora of plot twists, Capital Punishment shifts scenes briskly from London to Lisbon, Mumbai to Lahore. Wilson writes with elegant vigor as he describes the shoot-outs and emotional crescendos that result from the political and criminal intrigue at the heart of the book (Wall Street Journal)

When it comes to turning over rocks, whether in London or Spain or South Africa or South Asia, Wilson knows how to show us the dark creatures that lurk beneath. . . . I don't think it will spoil any of the plot to say that just when you think the situation may be settling down, the kidnap leads us to the discovery of how a sleeper cell of al Qaeda terrorists put all of London in danger. By then you will be reading for your life. (San Francisco Chronicle)

A gripping new thriller. Charles Boxer, ex-cop and soldier, is a private operative specializing in resolving kidnappings. . . . Wilson keeps tight control of his material. (Seattle Times)

Book Description

A crime thriller to take you on a terrifying journey into London's dark side.
