High on the craggy cliffs of the medieval Dunnottar Castle live those who train predators to obey their commands. Falconers like Rabbie Graham have tamed the wild peregrine falcons to hunt for decades, but the hunter becomes the prey when the enemy arrives at the gate.
Catriona and Rabbie find themselves facing passion and danger, but will they survive?
Private investigators Frank Pavlicek and daughter Nicole receive an urgent message from their friend and fellow falconer Jake Toronto about “a death in the family.” The death turns out to be the murder of his prize peregrine falcon Jazzman. Toronto worries that a vivacious female chef he helped ease out of a job is the culprit and that he may have done wrong by both her and her employer.
