Raptor: A Neil Hamel Mystery

Raptor: A Neil Hamel Mystery

Paperback(New Edition)



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.

The dark-haired boy crouched in the branches of a tree, directly above Pheonix. He held a gun. "At least there aren't ay Bugs." He muttered. "Then we'd ALL be dead. Including the dinosaurs." He was wearing what looked like a battle suit of armor. His helmet sat beside him.
