Review: Falcon Finale

This was an enjoyable read. I thought it was fun to have a well-crafted murder mystery in the context of a birder. Jan Dunlap kept my attention with each chapter ending in a cliffhanger; demanding that I read on. I was able to guess about mid-way through "who done it" based on one simple clue, but enjoyed the ride to the end of the book which had a couple other twists and turns that caught me off guard. Dunlap nicely developed believable characters that I liked, hated, or wondered about. It has just the right amount of birder-corniness that I enjoy - the main character is after all named Bob White.

This is the fourth book of Jan Dunlap's birder murder mystery series. Since I missed the first three books, I'll have to go back and buy them.

You can buy Falcon Finale online for as little as $11.21. A nice holiday gift for the birders in your life that enjoy curling up with a good book. For more about her and earlier works, check out JanDunlap.com.

Thanks Jan for sending me a copy of your book for review at "Birding is Fun!" You've certainly added another dimension to how to have fun birding!


  1. Looks like a good read! I've marked it down and and will start with book 1! I love series. Thanks for the review, and thanks, Jan, for making it possible.

  2. My pleasure, KaHolly. Let me know what you think - I love to hear from readers on my website. And thanks, Robert, for your review and helping spread the word about the Birder Murders!

  3. I've read all of her books, it's nice to see a new one. I've already downloaded it to my Kindle. I also like the series by Digby Maclaughlin check them out they may even be better than Dunlap's which is high praise indeed.

  4. Sounds interesting. I will have to check this out!
