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!
