Joshua Hammer - The Falcon Thief: A True Tale of Adventure, Treachery, and the Hunt for the Perfect Bird

Upcoming Event
Friday, February 14, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Hammer follows his bestselling The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu—possibly the most exciting library adventure story ever told—with a gripping account of wildlife smuggling. Set in locales ranging from Patagonia to Wales to Zimbabwe, the Arctic Circle, and Dubai, the book follows the exploits of Jeffrey Lendrum, an Irishman who for twenty years supplied members of the royal families of the United Arab Emirates with the falcons and other raptors—many of them endangered species—they used for races carrying multimillion dollar purses. Equally enthralling is the parallel saga of Andy McWilliams, the detective from Britain’s National Wildlife Crimes Unit who was determined to catch Lendrum.
