A steady law practice, a stash of tequila, a lover she calls the Kid - only a debt of the heart to her dear, dead aunt Joan could compel Neil Hamel to leave Albuquerque for Montana in search of a bird. No ordinary winged creature, the Arctic falcon is a near-mythic figure, a cool killer who likes the meat around the heart. In pursuit of this elusive species, Neil witnesses a sight even more awesome - a body plunging off a cliff.
Soon she is swept into a murder case that brings together militant environmentalists and high-stakes poachers, federal investigators, and even an Arabian prince. Suddenly, in a wilderness where she has no shelter and little chance for survival, Neil is the target of human predators.
“Well written.... Entertaining.” (Boston Sunday Globe)
“Van Gieson employs tight plotting and vivid scene-setting, but it is character that compels her novel - always a good sign.” (Detroit News)
