First edition. Signed. Author's second book. Fine in dust jacket. Small-time lawyer Neil Hamel is in Montana with an expedition in search of the elusive gyrfalcon, a beautiful and highly prized bird of prey, when the group witnesses a body plunging off the top of a cliff. The dead man is none other than a notorious poacher, and the suspect is an environmentalist who's crossed paths with the law in the past. Neil is asked to represent the suspect, and what should have been the simplest of cases turns out to be anything but ..... to include a bungled federal sting operation, an environmentalist who'd gladly use violence to further her cause, and an Arab prince who is determined to get his hands on the gyr.
