The third novel in the thrilling Shamus Award-winning, Agatha & Anthony Award-nominated series. 

An expert falconer is shot in the back in the wilds of West Virginia. The police believe he was the victim of a hunting accident, but PI Frank Pavlicek, a falconer himself, isn’t buying the story. Beatings, bombings, warnings from the FBI, and the arrest of his best friend on trumped-up charges only strengthen Pavlicek’s resolve to follow a bloody trail of lies and corpses that leads to a chilling terrorist conspiracy. 

“Highly recommended. I dare you to tell me I’m wrong.” (Michael Connelly)

“Frank Pavlicek is a breath of fresh air in the field of private eye fiction. Witty, sharp, and flesh-and-blood real." (Jeffery Deaver)

“There’s more pure suspense in this book than anything else I’ve read this year....” (Steve Hamilton)

“Straka’s storytelling is as strong as talons, and once he’s got you in his grip, he never let’s go.” (Rick Riordan)

Terrific Series!

I have been a fan of Andy strocka for a long time period his Frank Pavlecek is one of the most interesting detective characters that I have ever come across and the twist of being a falconer is doubly interesting. This story has you on the edge of your seat the whole way through from cover to cover with plenty of plot twists that make it both unpredictable and believable. This is the 3rd in the series and I can't wait to read the 4th. :)
