The book's title comes from the sky's . The falconry is a nice addition but really the book is nothing special. It was originally published in 2002 by Signet

The book's title comes from the sky's appearance at a time of day when falcons and hawks like to hunt. and the imagery hits its mark, just as Frank's redtailed hawk, Armistead, hits hers near the wholly satisfactory end of this engaging and involving story. It was originally published in 2002 by Signet.

I wonder if Thomas Jefferson would've liked football. om hovering like vultures in hopes of grabbing any opening. If a riot of undetermined location ever breaks out on the university's grounds, this would be one of the first places I'd tell them to look. I settled for a spot on a shady side street a few blocks down Alderman and walked to the swim center from there.

A former NYPD homicide detective, private investigator and falconer Frank Pavlicek is called in to uncover the truth about the mysterious disappearance of the daughter of a philandering congressman and follows a dark and dangerous trail of family secrets, treachery, and scandals to find the truth.

Andy Straka A Killing Sky
A sister finds her sister missing and hires Charlottesville Private Eye Frank Pavlicek, and ex-police officer whose hobby is falconry. The sister, the mother and a friend find they must hide from all investigators, including the police, and leave Pavlicek to investigate as he sees fit.
Their father of the sisters is a congressman in the midst of the battle of his political life; his extramarital affairs promise to ruin him and his favorite charity appears faulty. Pavlicek has a close yet tenuous relationship with the local police and an uneasy one with the Congressman’s toughs. His partner is a recluse who only comes out of his “paradise” when Pavlicek calls and then, after many heroic feats, slides back into his shadow-life.
The mystery has a standard plot which I had hoped would involve falconry. It didn’t. But, it’s ok, for the nights where there is nothing of interest on the many channels of consumerism and it’s raining.

I've been reading big name authors for years, waiting impatiently for the next book to come out. My kids bought me a Kindle , so I thought why not expand my library a bit. I found a couple authors I liked, but light reading, nothing that I couldn't walk away from for a day or two. I had about given up looking for a book that really hooked me when I discovered this book. So nice to read a book that is fast paced with enough twists and turns to keep you going. His descriptions of a scene are short but effective, and let you "see" perfectly without a long-winded paragraph that makes you want to skip pages. I will definitely be buying the rest of the series. Thank you, Andy.

Frank Pavlicek has many traits of the macho, hard boiled investigator. I started out skeptical because too much of that gets old for me. But then, in the midst of all the action, he is so loving and thoughtful with his girlfriend. Watch carefully and you'll see a really nice man being quite human without letting that crimp his style getting his jobs done. The falconry fits in really well, too, even though I thought it was just a gimmick at first. Give this guy a chance. I think you'll be glad you did.

This was a fine-tuned mystery. Congratulations to Andy Straka for providing us with Frank Pavlicek and Jake Toronto. Toronto is to Pavlicek what Joe Pike is to Elvis Cole ("World's Greatest Detective"). If you love Robert Crais, you will understand. If you haven't read Crais, you're missing out. I love Pavlicek, and I'm starting his third book when I place this next period.

Have you ever tried to pull into the traffic lane using an underpowered vehicle? Gosh, I would really like this vehicle if it just had a little more ump. Straka has a good outline story plot that needed some excitement to make it click. Frank Pavlicek, Straka's main character is a private investigator who takes a case with little enthusiasm. Frank's friends also have a negative take on the client. There are hints of bad things that might happen and bad people in high places, but not much to keep you on edge. You find that you are nearly at your final destination before your cruising in the fast lane. Good material that just needs that extra kick to get it above average.

A Killing Sky had the foundation of a good detective story and an enjoyable mystery. The first and last few pages held my attention very well. But the middle 200+ pages were repititious, tedious, and quite boring, with not much happening to move the story along. Two stars only.

The hero of the story is a former cop who is now a P.I.
Gee, that's a new one. However, this guy trains and hunts with raptors. Just for fun.
The daughter of a wealthy businessman disappears, and it seems she's been kidnapped. But there's no ransom demand.
As the story unfolds, the past has lots of hidden twists.
Pretty good read.
It was a good read. The main characters are really alive. There were so e words in the Book that I did not like to read, but I guess the author felt that was how some people talk. Lots of action and interesting with the falcon training. I will read the next one.
