This is the 1st in the series of Jeremy Fisk novels I have read.
A crazy Mexican is on the loose in New York he has killed and will kill again.
Fisk teams up with Cecilla Garza a Mexican Police special agent.
Book was far fetched and I got bored.
Not for me. ( )

A quality follow up to his first novel, the wooden female lead being the only drawback. ( )

This was a good mystery & covered a lot of ground. I didn't read the first, but the author caught me up on what happened well enough, probably without being overbearing for those who had. There's not a lot of action, but that is well done & quite believable. The story was logical, the motivations very good. I'll be interested in reading another. ( )

Interesting. I am always looking for new detectives who are not perfect. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062064851, Hardcover)

NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk—introduced in Law & Order creator Dick Wolf’s New York Times bestselling debut The Intercept—must stop an assassin in the pay of a shadowy cartel in The Execution, a tense thriller that superbly blends suspense, politics, intrigue and high-flying action in the tradition of Vince Flynn, David Baldacci, and Robert Crais.

Ten days after the Mexican presidential election, twenty-three bodies are discovered beheaded on the United States border, each marked with a carving of a Hummingbird. Detective Cecilia Garza of the Mexican intelligence agency recognizes it: it is the signature of an assassin called Chuparosa. Garza has been pursuing the killer for years, yet knows little about him, except that he’s heading to New York—with the rest of the world.

It’s United Nations Week in Manhattan and Jeremy Fisk can’t let grief over a devastating loss keep him from safeguarding his city. Complicating matters is the startling news of a mass murder in nearby Rockaway—and the arrival of a disturbingly beautiful and assertive Mexican cop.

To have a chance at finding Chuparosa, these uneasy allies must learn to work together and fast. As they soon discover, there’s more to this threat than meets the eye—and that justice is not always blind.
