Peregrine : Circling high over Rockefeller Center is a peregrine falcon, the most awesome of the flying predators. She awaits a signal from her falconer. It is given: The bird attacks, plummeting from the sky at nearly two hundred miles an hour, striking a young woman and killing her instantly. As killing follows killing, the police and the media engage in cutthroat competition to find the murderer. Two falcons fight to the death above Central Park. Call girls, rich eccentrics, dealers in the black market for rare birds - all play their roles in this study of secret obsession, desire, fulfillment, and ecstasy.
