The Gift of a Falcon

(1988)
A novel by

 
At the start, things appear simple enough. In Montana, FBI agent Frank DiGenero imparts a-word-to-the-wise warning to Kirby Harris, the friend who saved his life in Vietnam. But Harris misses living life on the edge too much. When he's offered $75,000 for trapping and smuggling a peregrine falcon, one of the world's rarest and most prized birds, he can't resist. Even if DiGenero is going to come after him... Caught in the middle is the woman both men love, who must choose between them. As DiGenero, divided between duty and obligation to a friend, embarks on his solitary and dangerous pursuit, he is drawn, along with Harris, into the murky world of international terrorism. A plan centered around the smuggled falcon, and more than a decade in the making, races toward its last and final step: the royal assassination that will ignite the fire of Islamic revolution in Saudi Arabia and spread its flames across the Middle East. The action rockets from Montana to Munich to London, to the Canadian Rockies, to Teheran to Riyadh - and back to the Montana hills for a final, startling showdown. A riveting story with many surprising twists that ring all too true. "The Gift of a Falcon" is based on actual situations and mirrors actual events. It is also very much an "insider's" book: technical expertise and "tricks of the trade" are cunningly employed throughout with mesmerizing clarity, detail, and suspense. Book Dust jacket
