Publisher's Summary

Who is Elvira Bladon? All Adam knows is that she's blonde, American, and stunning - with a gift for making him look foolish. She has been snooping around at The Sanctuary, the centre for birds of prey where Adam works. He knows he has to find out more about her before she can cause even more trouble there. But then Adam's boss is hospitalised after a mysterious attack, and Adam unexpectedly has to take Carson's place on a trip to Turkey and the United States. But violence and blackmail plague his progress, and Adam's life is soon threatened.

Not the best of Andrew Taylor ...

... at least not in my opinion. I have recently 'read' the Roth trilogy and have to say I was mesmerised by the characterizations and by the reading of the books. I didn't seem to engage in the same way with this book. It may have been that the vocabulary, and the voice, of the hero of the book did not seem to ring true, they both sounded too old.

I also found the relating of the plot a bit too beyond belief when written in this way. To summarise, I was glued to the other three and didn't ever feel engrossed in this one.
