The Falcon Fund
Colonel Kyle Dawson thought that his fighting time was over with the Scottish Highlanders, but when his son is murdered in Vancouver, BC, he must find his killer. The Colonel learns that his son, a narcotics officer, was off duty, but sitting in his car in a known drug area, and that it looks more like a hit than a random drug shooting.
Little by little, we are drawn into the Colonel’s world of untying the knots of a vast underhanded drug shipment that spans the globe. What the Colonel has stumbled into is a huge and intricately funded plan to get those drugs in, and he is the only one that seems to see just where it might lead. Governments don’t want some of that information out.
Using connections from his past life in the military, he receives information, weapons, and even old army buddy personnel to blow the roof off of who gave the order to kill his son. He is disavowed by his government and ends up basically a one man army on a mission, a mission of a father trying to find justice for his murdered son.
The story carries you though in nail-biting chapter after chapter. Ferguson pulled out all of the stops by including a bit of romance and betrayal, and you can’t help but admire, if not love, the Colonel and his story.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
