The Falcon's Revenge: An Aviation-Based Thriller by James Horling is a hypnotic thriller that features the quest for revenge, terrorism, and political intrigue, a page-turner that will be hard to put down. “A 10-year-old boy named Raquir just saw his father, mother, and one of his two siblings killed by the accidental discharge of the SEAL’s weapons. Bullets and ricochets tore into the bodies on the floor.” The image remains engraved in his memory as he makes the resolve to avenge his loved ones. Watch as the orphan grows up to be one of the deadliest instruments that could bring the US to her knees. First, he joins the Warrior Brotherhood, where radical ideas and his growing hatred for America are instilled and fueled. Then he learns to fly in the new Afghan Air Force, and makes his way to learn to fly the F-16, the Fighting Falcon, in the US. Now, he has everything to execute a deadly revenge on America. Can ex-FBI agent, now a private detective, Eric Tyson stop one of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil and save the life of the President and the lives of many others?

James Horling has written a terrorist thriller that is nothing short of a masterpiece. The villain is well-crafted, a bad guy who is given a powerful motive and the means to carry out a deadly mission. The plot is very gripping and, from the first page, the reader is already absorbed into the dynamics of the story. The Falcon's Revenge: An Aviation-Based Thriller has a fascinating and colorful setting, offers a compelling story with strong characters, and explores elements of radical beliefs and how the weak fall prey to them. Each page is loaded with action and intrigue and there is no way to part with the story until its satisfying end.
