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.
