All he had to do was prove it . . . before the murderer strikes again.

The body of a young woman is found in a dump in American Samoa. Then the prime suspect in her death is found half-eaten by sharks. Natural justice? Native justice? Or something else entirely? Lieutenant Han, a Korean-American homicide detective on loan to this remote South Pacific island nation, is also its only trained investigator. Born in one culture, raised in another, married into a third and now working in a fourth, Han takes nothing for granted about why people kill each other. Even so, these two deaths make no sense. Meanwhile, Han's estranged Japanese wife is back in Samoa, apparently more interested in an American ecologist than her husband, and the woman doctor Han fell for in his wife's absence seems to be falling for the hospital's new pathologist, a long-distance ocean sailor from South Africa with some unique experience in third-world killing fields. As the answers to Han's questions emerge from the cultural chaos like the ghosts that haunt Samoan forests, he discovers that the last blind spot is his own. And it may kill him.
At its core, A Bird in the Hand is indeed about trophies, though not those ranked by size or numbers or scores, but, rather, the lasting trophies of the mind and heart. In his lyrical trademark style, Lundrigan shares vivid images and compelling thoughts over a range of personal experiences from his beloved Minnesota grouse coverts to the red-dust quail country of western Oklahoma, from big-water duck gunning to sharp-tailed grouse hunts on the prairies of North Dakota. Ted weaves the fabric of his multifaceted tales in a manner that effortlessly involves you with the places and people and gun dogs that are the warp and woof of this hunts.
Part I: When young Louie kills a crow he had wounded in the woods, he learns, too late, that the bird's screaming would have lured more crows into shooting range. This social lesson serves as inspiration later in the boy's life, when a betrayal in the family calls on Louie's skills for requital. The betrayer is his best friend and mentor. Almost everything Louie knows he owes to this double-crosser. So how can he avenge his family and also make a personal payback? A mere "hit" doesn't fix the damages; in fact, it turns out that things become terribly worse for Louie. His bird may have been knocked from the nest, but there is something left behind... Part II: At a later time, in a different place... On full moon nights, citizens of a quiet, small Wisconsin town are being murdered. Werewolf? It would seem. The community´s delicate fabric begins to unravel as suspicion slowly swirls around one of its known and respected members. "Innocent until proven guilty" is not the going attitude. The town goes mad; things are not what they appear. But to the orchestrator of the whole mess--oh, things couldn´t be going better... "A Bird in the Hand" is a thriller. It's a heart-wrencher. It twists, suspends, even flirts with the supernatural. One thing promised, it will keep you guessing which way the maze will turn next, provided you´ve assumed the right path at the last turn.

From USA Today bestselling author Dane McCaslin... Take two British expats, transplant them to upstate New York where the local HOA is worshipped and neighbors spy on each other for fun, and you have the makings of murder gone amok. Caro Layton-Browning, an accomplished writer of mysteries, never imagined she would unwittingly stumble into a series of real-life murders good enough to be in her own books. But when the Cat Lady next door, who Caro is convinced is out to make life miserable for her, is found dead among her feline collection, Caro finds herself in trouble far more dangerous than her neighborhood HOA has ever dished out before. Suddenly she and her professor hubby, Gregory, find themselves on the trail of a murderer far more sinister than Caro's imagination could conjure up. As the bodies begin to pile up in picturesque Seneca Meadows, Caro sees the possibility of a plot for her newest book, and the killer sees someone who needs to be moved out of the way…permanently.
