"A breath of fresh air in the field of private eye fiction." –Jeffery Deaver
Private investigators Frank Pavlicek and his daughter Nicole receive an urgent message from their friend and fellow falconer Jake Toronto about “a death in the family.” For Toronto, his birds are his family. The death in question turns out to be the murder of his prize peregrine falcon Jazzman. Toronto worries that a vivacious female chef he helped ease out of a job is the culprit and that he may have done the wrong thing by both the woman and her employer. Was Jazzman murdered for love?
FLIGHTFALL is an 18,000 word novella. This edition includes a bonus excerpt from Andy Straka’s forthcoming full-length suspense thriller THE BLUE HALLELUJAH.
“One of the best P.I. series to come along in recent years.” –Brian Reubendal
“Straka offers us a modern hero, who shows us that dirt roads can indeed be mean streets. A pleasure to recommend..."
--Kate’s Mystery Books
"Spencer fans take hold, there is a new kid on the block!"
--Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin
--"Andy Straka has learned something about writing from falconry. His storytelling is as sharp and strong as talons, and once he's got you in his grip, he never lets go."
