Falcon Thief : a true tale of adventure, treachery and the hunt for the perfect bird by Joshua Hammer

Smuggling live Falcon eggs on commercial airlines to sell to wealthy Arabians. Who knew it was even a thing!! This true story of a particular smuggler and the English cop who pursues him is very entertaining and enlightening. Obsessed with the birds and their eggs there are those who go to unbelievable lengths to collect them. I recommend this book and if you like it then watch the documentary movie "Poached" (2015).  I think you can find it on Amazon prime video. Enjoy!

Blackwood by Michael Farris Smith

A dark novel. A dying Mississippi town, a homeless family, a haunted man, missing people, and kudzu everywhere. Smith masterfully weaves a story of hunger and regret and something sinister hidden under the kudzu. A very good quick read!
