|Book Description||It's supposed to be an easy paycheck for private investigators Frank Pavlicek and his daughter Nicole. Their friend and fellow falconer Jake Toronto has a new client: multi-millionairess Raquel Greensmythe, founder and CEO of Greensmythe Global. Greensmythe keeps a stable of prized falcons at her Northern Virginia estate while her firm hunts sensitive information, using sophisticated data mining techniques to make predictions about pending legislation and other issues for lobbying firms, Wall Street bankers, and other high paying customers. All Frank and Nicole have to do is help Jake escort Greensmythe and one of her Vice Presidents as they attend a series of meetings in Washington, D.C. But when a professional killer ambushes them in an underground K Street parking garage, one of the executives ends up dead, Jake is shot in the hand, and Nicole is critically wounded. For Frank and Jake, the hunt is on for a killer even the cops refer to as "a ghost." It's a pursuit that will test them as never before. THE K STREET HUNTING SOCIETY is Book 6 in Straka's Shamus Award-winning Frank Pavlicek mystery series. Other books in the series, in order, include: A WITNESS ABOVE, A KILLING SKY, COLD QUARRY, THE NIGHT FALCONER and FLIGHTFALL. ANDY STRAKA is the bestselling author of ten novels, including the Shamus Award-winning Frank Pavlicek mystery series. A licensed falconer, he lives near Charlottesville, Virginia-within sight of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but close enough to Washington, DC, to feel the tremors.|

His books include A WITNESS ABOVE (Anthony, Agatha, and Shamus Award finalist), A KILLING SKY (Anthony Award Finalist), COLD QUARRY (Shamus Award Winner), KITTY HITTER (called a "great read" by Library Journal), and RECORD OF WRONGS, hailed by Mystery Scene magazine as "a first-rate thriller."

(Not to mention a longstanding stint as a stay-at-home Dad to six, which makes neurosurgery look like tiddlywinks.) A licensed falconer and co-founder of the popular Crime Wave at the annual Virginia Festival of the Book, Andy is a native of upstate New York and a graduate of Williams College where, as co-captain of the basketball team, he "double-majored" in English and the crossover dribble.
