Falcon is Book Four in the Birds of Flight action series by J.M. Erickson. Alexander J. Burns has been taken captive by Eric Daniels, his former boss at the Foreign Intelligence Agency. Daniels has never forgiven or forgotten Burns' departure from his assignment. Of the close-knit family that Burns had assembled around him in the past, all but Becky and Emma are still alive. This time, however, Daniels is the government's target. He's aligned himself with a radical survivalist group, who've been keeping Burns sedated while he's being brought to Daniels. The government is acting on information that Daniels has Burns in a mine in Colorado, and they've sent a team there to rescue Burns and apprehend Daniels.
J.M. Erickson's action thriller, Falcon: Birds of Flight Book Four, is an intense and demanding read that repays the reader's efforts many times over. While the author gives a great deal of background and provides a detailed List of Characters to allow new readers to enjoy Falcon as a stand-alone novel, I strongly recommend reading the entire series in order. The story that is woven through the four books is magnificently orchestrated and plotted. Erickson's characters, especially the enigmatic Burns, are compelling and real and seeing their personalities and relationships evolve throughout the series is marvelous. The plot is complex and can require some effort at times, especially in the beginning of Falcon, but Erickson's got it all under control as he adroitly weaves his spells in this latest story of Alexander J. Burns. Falcon: Birds of Flight Book Four is most highly recommended.
