"Pavlicek is a breath of fresh air in the field of private eye fiction."
--Jeffery Deaver

Thirteen years ago, Frank Pavlicek left the NYPD under less than ideal circumstances. Now, the divorced father of a teenage daughter, he works as a private investigator in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he indulges his passion for falconry – and tries to live outside the shadow of his past.
Frank is hunting with his red-tailed hawk, Armistead, when he finds it. A teenage boy’s body – barely concealed behind a pile of brush in a part of the forest Frank recently visited with his daughter, Nicole. It’s a truly gruesome crime scene – one of the many things Frank doesn’t miss about working homicide in the big city.

But what Frank finds in the dead boy’s wallet is even more disturbing: Nicole’s phone number, scribbled in ink on the edge of a bill. He pockets the evidence and flees. Days later, his daughter is in jail. His past is coming back to haunt him. And his reputation – and life – are on the line…

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great new P-I series 10 mai 2001
Par Frank M. McCraw - Publié sur
Mr. Straka's first book in the Frank Pavlicek series offers the reader a variety of adventures. Pavlicek, a former NYC detective, and his former partner(s) resettle with their families in small-town Virginia after being railroaded off the force for their part in a teen's death resulting from a cop shooting. After his marriage fails in the new setting, Pavlicek moves to Charlottesville where he sets up his PI shop, and develops a taste for falconry. Years later when his hunting bird discovers a dead body and Pavlicek spots evidence that apparently connects the deceased black (drug dealing?) teen with his daughter, Pavlicek is thrust back into family life with all the joys of dealing with his alcoholic former wife and rebellious teenage daughter. As evidence mounts against his daughter, Pavlicek's determination increases. Can Pavlicek and his hawk rise to the occasion?
The reader will recognize the genre's familiar one-two punch of a PI and his sidekick (Spenser and Hawk, Elvis Cole and Joe Pike, etc.) with Frank and Jake in this book. The dialogue is not as smart-aleck as some, but the traditional tension and repartee between PIs and state and local police is there. Other slices of life Straka tackle include: a young female black district attorney in a small southern town, turf-battling between the local police department, attorneys, and the state trooper, the intrusion of organized crime and gangs into a small, sleepy southern town, the question of the conversion of a drug dealer to Christianity, much local Central Virginia color, and some of the finer shades of difference between falconry with red-tailed hawks and goshawks. A WITNESS ABOVE raises the intelligence level of a good murder mystery a notch.
I really liked this book. It is interesting and has a surprise ending that ties together all the pieces.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting Debut PI Novel 21 juin 2003
Par Mark Baker - Publié sur
Frank Pavlicek left the NYPD under bad circumstances and set up a PI office in Virginia. He is out falconing one morning when he stumbles, almost literally, on a decomposing body. While looking around before he calls the police, he finds his daughter's phone number in the guy's wallet. But soon, his daughter has been arrested for drug possession, a charge she denies adamantly. With a local sheriff as suspicious of Frank as Frank is of him and a daughter not telling the entire truth, Frank is going to have to work fast to free her and learn the truth.
While I don't normally read PI novels, this one caught my interested because of the falconry aspect. I have no connection to the subject, but I'm always up for learning about something new in books. This story provided some interesting information about the subject without slowing down the story.
And what a great read it was. The characters are all well drawn and easy to care for, and the plot is confusing as well. I had no clue where the story was going until the end.
I will definitely be reading other books in this series. I have to know what happens next to Frank and his friends and family.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 well written but no real mystery 7 mars 2014
Par Blue Jacket - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
P.I. Frank Pavlicek was a young police officer until a suspicious shooting takes his career away early in the story. Years later he becomes involved in another murder, the second murder would tie into the first. With the two intertwined that really only leaves two suspects. This was a story that I, [being no genius] figured out by the second chapter, then you very well might too. The characters that are introduced into the story as it evolves, are interesting, but if the murderer is apparent, there is no mystery to speak of. .

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Promising beginning, fascinating falconry 3 juin 2001
Par Kinsey Millhone - Publié sur
I'm a big fan of PI novels, and since I'm always looking for something a little different, I picked this book up primarily because the detective was a falconer. Not that I have a particular interest in falconry; it just made the book stand out from the other paperbacks on the rack. And indeed, Frank Pavlicek's hobby was a great component of the story, and I learned a lot. The main story - Frank stumbles upon a corpse, and it turns out his daughter knew the murdered young man - is nicely plotted and suspenseful. My only gripe is that I wish the writing had been a little snappier. Straka has a way to go until he reaches the level of a Pronzini or Grafton. But will I be keeping an eye out for future Pavlicek adventures? You bet.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Story not bad 30 juin 2013

Ok story, but I figured out who the bad guy was pretty early in the book. However, the editing and grammar were terrible.

Decent story, terrible editing and grammar.
