Read full description of the books:
I was meaning to pick "Audubon Caper" for some time, but the moment I peeked into the sample chapter I knew I have to read this book. It gripped me from the very beginning, the author's way to address the reader in the friendly conversational way of someone telling you his story.
I didn't know that it was a creative non-fiction in the beginning. It felt like a well written thriller, with its mounting action and the well-defined characters. But of course the realization that the story has truly happened was another delicious tidbit, to enhance my reading experience.
The fascinating world of the organized crime and its dynamics with the legal powers of the state, the decisions the FBI agents would sometimes take as though they were playing chess, with the "small fry" of the regular people caught in this grand game, forced to take their roles often against their will, the situation in the after-Vietnam USA, the state of mind of people from all cuts of society, all those made this story into a fascinating read as the plot progressed and got more and more complicated. Never once my attention wandered, and many times the story surprised me with its unpredictable turns.
I enjoyed this book immensely and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in broadening his/hers horizons, while enjoying a good deal of action and adventure.
