    Intense to the Very End

    Each new Ryder story is more intense and exciting than the last. The fabled Maltese Falcon is the new trigger to a Ryder search , with bad guys coming out of the woodwork and true evil in various disguises. The suspense and action is non-stop. I warn you, you will not be able to stop reading once you start until you reach the end. Dr. Ryder's intellect enables her to understand the most puzzling clues, and her uncanny martial arts ability keeps her in harms way with a minimum of damage. When you finish the book, you will have to allow time for your heart rate to return to normal and your breathing to slow. The story is that intense, right up to the end.

    Suspense and Action Packed Series

    I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review. At the end of Ryder: American Treasure, historian and adventuress Ayesha Ryder was tired, a little beat up and desperate to go back to her research. Something that’s not exactly easy to do when you’re the female version of Indiana Jones and your friends keep getting you involved in solving historical mysteries. Lured by the tale that “The Maltese Falcon”, of Dashiell Hammett fame, is real and still in existence, Ayesha finds herself once again drawn into a treasure hunt in Ryder: Bird of Prey. A thriller filled with political intrigue, dastardly villains and a light touch of romance, Mr. Pengelley’s third installment in the Ayesha Ryder series is sure to be a hit among mystery fans. Although already an established character, Mr. Pengelley turns up the heat on Ayesha’s character by providing us with more information about her early life in the Middle East and by providing her with a new sidekick, Joram Tate. Still suffering with occasional flashbacks to her activities in the Fedayeen, and her family’s death, Ayesha hopes that getting her hands on the “Maltese Falcon” will help her locate the sword owned by King Harold of England (a.k.a. Excalibur) and also help her locate the lost treasure of the Knights Hospitaller (crusaders who stole the treasure from The Holy Land). Filled with existing, and well developed, secondary characters, Mr. Pengelley turns up the heat by once again placing Ayesha in a situation where she’s forced to hide from, and outrun, Dame Imogen and MI-5 and once again depend on Lady Madrigal and also on Joram Tate, a new character, who is a librarian with information on the “Maltese Falcon”. An intelligent, attractive man, Joram is an interesting character and one I could see becoming a series regular. The fact that he and Ayesha have great chemistry is also a major plus, all while working for a man who she doesn't like and whose secret agenda is something Ayesha would never approve of. Will Ayesha locate the real Maltese Falcon and will it give her the clues she needs to find the hidden treasure? Will she somehow manage to save her adopted country and its prime minister once again? You’ll have to read Ryder: Bird of Prey to find out. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading Ayesha’s next adventure,
