The Death Bird Contract

A hard-edged covert operative crosses into Mexico—and enters a dark, dangerous spiral—in this novel from “an able practitioner” of the thriller genre (Larry McMurtry, The New York Times).
A freelancer specializing in covert ops, Joe Gall has been tasked with doing a background check on a millionaire—a job that will take him into the wild and gritty world of 1960s Mexico. Unfortunately, the assignment has already come to a bad end for two different agents before him. It will put Gall in the crosshairs of some very dangerous people—not to mention piranhas—as he goes deeper and deeper undercover, into the terrifying world of heroin addiction . . .
From the Edgar Award–nominated author of The White Wolverine Contract, this is lighting-paced Cold War–era action at its best.
