Book Synopsis

What’s the PI series that Edgar winners Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Steve Hamilton, and Rick Riordan read when they want the best? 

This one. 

Thirteen years ago, NYPD Detective, Frank Pavlicek quit the force after a controversial shoot-out that left an unarmed African-American teenager dead. The divorced father of a teenage daughter, Pavlicek now works as a private investigator and hunts with a trained falcon. While hunting, he discovers the corpse of a black, teenage drug dealer with ties to his daughter. Unable to ignore the connections to his family or the shooting that cost his career, he goes after the killer to find the truth, save his daughter …and free himself from the shackles of his past. 

The first novel in the blockbuster Frank Pavlicek series. An Anthony, Shamus, and Agatha Award nominee. 

"Pavlicek is a breath of fresh air in the field of private eye fiction." Jeffery Deaver 

"Highly recommended. I dare you to tell me I’m wrong," Michael Connelly 

"A book this good, and this original, helps remind me why started reading mysteries in the fist place," Steve Hamilton 

"Storytelling as sharp and strong as talons," Rick Riordan

    Wow! What a great story teller! Lots of twists and turns, and never knowing who was going to be next. But also vivid descriptions of the characters and what they were thinking.

    A great yarn! One criticism about a couple of lapses in grammar. The use of “I” when it should be “me” as in the following example, "“who had worked with Toronto and I”. This seems to be a rather common error these days in speaking and writing. “With” is a preposition and should be followed by the objective, not the subjective case of the personal pronoun. I like to call that error the “between you and I syndrome."
  • Pretty damned good

    Taut, well-written. Twists and turns are all reasonable and keep you guessing. Well drawn, interesting characters. It ain't literature, but it's pretty damned good.
