Award-winning author Terry Odell delivers another action adventure romance with Falcon's Prey, the eighth installment in her Blackthorne, Inc. covert ops series.

Heroes aren't fearless. They just don't let fear get in the way.

Police officer Lexi Becker is being targeted. When her husband was murdered two years ago, Lexi moved to a small town to get away from the memories, to get away from the pain. But she can't get away from the gut feeling that a drug lord, known only as the Falcon, was responsible for her husband's death. As she quietly conducts her own investigation, it becomes clear to Lexi she could be the Falcon's next victim. Afraid her local police department has been infiltrated by the Falcon, she turns to the only man she can trust for help: her former patrol partner.

When ex-cop Marv "Fish" Frisch is assigned bodyguard duty instead of a covert ops assignment, he fears he's being punished for a failed training mission. The last assignment he expected was Lexi Becker. Now he's forced to deal with the attraction he felt when they worked together. As they go into hiding, Fish can't keep his feelings hidden from Lexi. It seems she feels the same, but danger is everywhere. Someone's bugged her house. An illegal opioid network. People dying. And an even more sinister plan is being put into action...

When Lexi is torn between hiding or coming to the aid of an orphaned child, Lexi leaves Fish's protection. Now she's on her own, a prime target for the Falcon...unless she can outsmart him.
Will Lexi survive long enough to tell Fish how she feels?

About the Author

From childhood, Terry Odell wanted to "fix" stories so the characters would behave properly. Once she began writing, she found this wasn't always possible, as evidenced when the mystery she intended to write turned into a romance, despite the fact that she'd never read one. Odell prefers to think of her books as "Mysteries With Relationships." After writing 8 romantic suspense novels, she finally got around to writing a "normal" mystery and her Mapleton Mystery series began.

She writes the Blackthorne, Inc. series, the Pine Hills Police series, the Triple-D Ranch series, and the Mapleton Mystery series.

Her mystery short story collection, “Seeing Red” is a Silver Falchion winner. You can find her high (that's altitude—she lives at 9100 feet!) in the Colorado Rockies—or at her website, terryodell.com, and blog, Terry's Place.

Police officer Lexi Becker is on leave after suffering a minor injury during a domestic violence call. There is no reason that she should be on an extended leave, but fears that there are police in her department who are being paid off by the man she feels killed her husband. Her husband was murdered three years ago and she believes “The Falcon” was responsible. As she investigates to uncover the real identity of “The Falcon”, she becomes a target and turns to her former partner, Marv “Fish” Frisch for help. Marv is now working for Blackthorne, Inc. and is assigned to protect Lexi while others at Blackthorne search to identify the “The Falcon”. As danger comes closer, Sophie, a young girl, that Lexi has befriended is now in danger. Sophie’s mother has been arrested and Lexi seeks to gain temporary custody of Sophie so that she does not disappear into the system. Is Lexi being forced out of hiding in order to be there for Sophie? Marv will work to keep both Lexi and Sophie safe as the opioid crisis infects the small town of Burnside. An intricate mystery with well-rounded characters who draw you into the story as each new crisis unfolds. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review.

Falcon’s Prey by Terry Odell is the eighth A Blackthorne, Inc. Novel. Lexi Becker moved to Burnside, Oregon after her husband was murdered to get away from the painful memories. It seems, though, that she has stumbled upon a drug ring with a leader named The Falcon. Lexi thought she was being discreet with her inquiries, but she can tell she is being watched. It seems that the Falcon has also infiltrated the police department, so Lexi needs someone she can trust to help her. Lexi hires Blackthorne to help her bring down The Falcon and his organization. Her old partner and friend, Marv “Fish” Frisch works for the company, but he was not honest about his occupation (it is obvious he is not a desk jockey). With her life being at risk, Lexi is taken to a Blackthorne safehouse with Marv as her personal bodyguard. The old feelings they had for each other have resurfaced and it is hard not to act upon the attraction. But Lexi’s life is in danger and The Falcon is intent on getting to her (plus there are rules). When Lexi’s Little Sister is in trouble, Lexi must risk her own life to save that of a little girl. Will they be able to bring down The Falcon or will Lexi be his next victim? Will Marv get the opportunity to tell Lexi how much she means to him? Come along for an action-packed adventure in Falcon’s Prey! Falcon’s Prey is well-written and has a steady pace. Lexi’s life is in danger and she is having a hard time staying out of the action. She knows Blackthorne is trying to keep her safe, but the waiting is getting to her. The attraction between Marv and Lexi is palpable. They try to resist, but it is inevitable (with the tension they are under and being stuck inside) that they will give in to temptation. There is plenty of action and suspense in Falcon’s Prey. You never know how or when The Falcon’s minions will attack. Falcon’s Prey deals with the opioid problem in our country. Drugs are a big problem and when one dealer is removed, there is another to step in. While Falcon’s Prey is the eighth story in the series, it can be read alone. We get to find out more about Marv in this story and how he earned his nickname “Fish”. It is nice to see Marv’s vulnerable side as he opens up to Lexi. I wish Lexi had not overthought her actions or processes. Her impatience was not an attractive trait. There is some mild foul language in the book and there are intimate scenes (as expected in a romantic suspense story). Falcon’s Prey will have you on the edge of your seat as flip the pages to see if Lexi survives The Falcon.
