Original Q&A –

John Valeri: What inspired you to write Operation Freakshow – and how did the initial idea evolve throughout the creative process?

Dave Koco: When I was a child, I was abused by certain adults in my life and was around children who were like me. Not fake super villains but true scum of the earth evil. I loved reading about vigilantes as a kid. I felt at the time nothing would change unless you killed those who were responsible. When in the Marines, I found out they tracked sexual offenders on a map to see where they lived. I said we should kill them all. Everyone in the room thought I was joking. It wasn’t until my at the time wife talked me out of it and I decided to just focus on fiction. So I guess it’s better to write novels than to make headlines. I just hope one day our novel makes an impact.

Buy Our Book: Operation Freakshow By Ray Fisher & Dave Koco –

In this debut novel, a self-righteous team of vigilantes don luchador masks and bring their own swift brand of violent justice to anyone who would dare harm a child. Their actions however are quickly misinterpreted by the media and attention-starved online followers… and what was originally meant to halt the cycle of violence, only perpetuates it.

Advance praise for OPERATION FREAKSHOW:
“Authors Ray Fisher and Dave Koco write in a style that not only leaves you with the most haunting images in your mind, but leaves you wide awake at night with one single thought: ‘What could they possibly do next?’”
—David Tees, online reporter and reviewer

“Operation Freakshow is an insanely fun bumpy tale that left me wanting to learn more about these overly raw yet compelling characters in this startling universe.”
—Jeff Yager, entrepreneur and author, ATOM & EVE
