Overview

Theodore "Paki" Pakidorapopulos is a happily married man with a secret . . . he enjoys having sex with young men and boys. He likes his double life, does not consider himself gay, and ridicules gay causes in his popular conservative magazine column. When he gets sick, however, everything changes. He believes he's infected with the AIDS virus, and his comfortable world comes apart as his illness, anger, and growing madness start to affect his work and family. He takes revenge on those he blames for making him sick by killing the young male prostitutes he solicits. Two cops from Manhattan North Homicide, Eddie Ramos and Tommy Cucitti, try to track him down, but how do you catch someone who's managed to successfully keep his double life a secret for so long? Nothing comes easy in this case as the body count grows and the cops' jobs, reputations and lives are on the line.

    I can only say wow!

    When I started reading the first chapter I thought to myself that this might not be the kind of book that I really want to read, but the more I got into it the more I couldn't stop reading it. I honestly could not put it down until I finished the last page, it was crazy and good!

    Literary Lovers Book Review

    Chickenhawk by Arnold Wolf Chickenhawk is a police drama following two cops from NYC who are hot on the trail of 'Paki' Pakidorapopulus. Paki has led a double life, keeping his preference for sex with young male prostitutes a secret from his wife and the outside world. The body count grows as detectives Eddie Ramos and Tommy Cucitti are on the case! Chickenhawk was well written and the author did a wonderful job of keeping the reader engaged in the storyline. His descriptive style of writing makes you feel like you are watching a police drama on television instead of reading a book. Arnold Wolf is a gifted writer who should have no trouble gaining a new reading audience after they read Chickenhawk! I give the book four stars! Tamara G. Atlanta, GA Literary Lovers Book Club

    Great Story!

    I have just finished this novel and I have to say that I really liked it! The story had me grossed out and hooked from the very first chapter. I couldn't believe all the stuff happening, and all of the characters were really very interesting. My favorite characters were Cucitti and that guy Gilman from the very beginning. All in all I really liked the novel, but I was a little turned off by some of errors I found in it. I think it could have been even better with a little more editing.

    Good summer read

    The lead character, Detective Eddie Ramos is good at his job but unable to address the personal issues that have recently plagued his family. Although realistic in form, his character was rather boring. I found Tommy Cucitti, his 'hip hop linguistic' partner to be annoying and easy to dislike. Of the three main characters, the villain's persona, Theodoro Pakidorapopaulos, was actually the most interesting of the three. This is the first book that I have noticed that my preference for the supporting characters. Some may find the sexual content overly graphic, but I would disagree. The discovery and inevitable chase scene was enjoyable. Reading Arnold Wolf's Chickenhawk has left a desire to read other works written by him.
