A rollicking true-crime adventure about a rogue who trades in rare birds and their eggs&;and the wildlife detective determined to stop him.

On May 3, 2010, an Irish national named Jeffrey Lendrum was apprehended at Britain&;s Birmingham International Airport with a suspicious parcel strapped to his stomach. Inside were fourteen rare peregrine falcon eggs snatched from a remote cliffside in Wales.

So begins a tale almost too bizarre to believe, following the parallel lives of a globe-trotting smuggler who spent two decades capturing endangered raptors worth millions of dollars as race champions&;and Detective Andy McWilliam of the United Kingdom&;s National Wildlife Crime Unit, who&;s hell bent on protecting the world&;s birds of prey.

The Falcon Thief whisks readers from the volcanoes of Patagonia to Zimbabwe&;s Matobo National Park, and from the frigid tundra near the Arctic Circle to luxurious aviaries in the deserts of Dubai, all in pursuit of a man who is reckless, arrogant, and gripped by a destructive compulsion to make the most beautiful creatures in nature his own. It&;s a story that&;s part true-crime narrative, part epic adventure&;and wholly unputdownable until the very last page.
