Publisher's Summary

Charles Boxer, ex-army, ex-police, has found his niche in private security. His speciality: high-stakes kidnap resolution. But it's a rootless life that doesn't impress his teenage daughter, Amy, or her mother, Detective Sergeant Mercy Danqah. Alyshia D'Cruz, daughter of Indian tycoon Francisco 'Frank' D'Cruz, has grown up in London and Mumbai wanting for nothing. But one night, after a boozy evening out, she gets in the wrong cab home...
When D'Cruz hires Boxer to find Alyshia, Boxer knows Frank's colourful business career has made him plenty of enemies along the way. Despite the vast D'Cruz fortune, the kidnappers don't want cash - instead favouring a cruel and lethal game. But the UK government don't want their big new investor to lose his daughter in the heart of the capital. MI6 officers in India follow Boxer's leads 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 home-grown crime lords. CAPITAL PUNISHMENT is a journey to the dark side of people and places that lie just out of view, waiting for the moment to tear a life apart. Read by Steven Pacey. Steven Pacey is best known for his role as Del Tarrant in the third and fourth seasons of the sci-fi series Blake's 7.
He has worked extensively in Theatre, TV and film for many years and in 2009 played opposite Graham Norton in La Cage Aux Folles at London's Playhouse Theatre.

I purchased this after listening to the Falcon series which I thoroughly enjoyed so after reading the reviews I took the plunge!

Steven Pacey does an excellent job with the narration - I was hooked on the Jussi Adler-Olsen books which were also excellently narrated and wasn't disappointed with this one.

Great story keeps you listening to find out what happens next and finishes leaving you hanging for the next instalment which I'm off to get now!

As absorbing as the Spanish series

Keeping track of all the names and characters was something of a challenge here, but once into the tortuous twists and turn of this tale, I was unable to stop reading/listening till the end!
And Mr.Pacey's command of such a range of accents is amazing!
