The book teally doesn’t read like a debut and the story wqs really engaging, making me want to read one more chapter each time i picked the book up.  The book was very believable and kept me guessing all the way through, which is one thing I love about these kinds of books.  Overall this is a must read and I personally cannot wait for book 2.  Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews

This is a well written crime fiction with stand out characters. Reid is a lawman that really cares about the victims and their loved ones. His partner, Fadi, is of a different race and religion, yet they get along famously… maybe because Fadi is very skillful and diligent. Together they make an unbeatable team that must face off on the worst serial killer known to mankind.  Read more here

This books starts at a speedy rate straight away, which I personally love. No long chapters bedding in the characters with long waits for anything exciting to happen. This was boom action packed immediately. A truly awesome book, that I highly recommend.  Read more here

The Executioner (Detective Alex Reid #1) by Heather Opperman

Available from Amazon 

Do you like adrenaline pumping psychological thrillers?

The Executioner is a debut thriller from an author we are sure to hear more about in the future

Alex Reid lives a charmed life.

He has a job he loves, a wife who adores him, and a home which has been featured in magazines. As a Detective in the Serious and Violent Crimes unit in Cape Town, South Africa, Alex is fortunate to live in a country where serial killers are few and far between.

But in a whirlwind turn of events, Alex finds himself locked in a life and death struggle with a malevolent serial killer who has chosen Alex as his arch nemesis.

As the body count rises, Alex must try to overcome his own personal tragedy and loss, and go head to head with the man the media have dubbed the Executioner.

Will Alex stop him before he extracts his final revenge?

The Location

Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbour and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.

The Detective

Detective Alex Reid had a difficult childhood but he survived against all the odds.  He is now a Detective solving serious crime cases.  He is a unique character that cares about the people he is keeping safe.  He has developed a healthy working relationship with Fadi, appreciating his skills along with his strange ways.  Together they are determined to take down the bad guys.

The Executioner – my blog tour post

Author Bio

I am always thinking of new ways to describe what I see and feel. Words are my passion! I know it’s nerdy, but I make a point of learning at least 3 new words a week.

I have no formal training in writing. My background is in Corporate Information Technology, where I have 25 years’ experience.

But I have been writing since as far back as I remember, on any surface I could find, including one memorable occasion when I wrote a “poem” on the wall of my Mother’s bedroom, which earned me a clip on the ear.

Thanks to the encouragement, bribes and downright threats to my life and limbs, I was persuaded by friends and family to self-publish The Executioner. I am so grateful to everybody who has walked with me on this journey. I’m not stopping now!
