Original article: Vigilance v. Vigilantism: Dave Koco on ‘Operation Freakshow’ (Q&A) – https://johnbvaleri.wordpress.com/2017/02/06/vigilance-v-vigilantism-dave-koco-on-operation-freakshow-qa/

Original Q&A –

JV: The story tackles timely social issues such as sexual abuse against children and vigilante justice. What kind of dialogue do you hope the book might inspire – and in what ways is the narrative enhanced by using the lens of fiction?

DK: I am happy you see it that way. I have had this story in my head and on paper in one way or another for years. I hope it gives someone the strength I never had to get help and hold the abusers responsible. I hope it opens a dialogue about how harsh punishments should be and that there are drastic consequences if you should ever take the law into your own hands. I hope it delivers the message that when you hurt a child, it hurts them much longer than it takes the bruises to heal, and they will never be the same again.

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
