This is what, the fourth Frank Pavlicek mystery I have read, and I am starting to yawn. I think perhaps Andy Straka just doesn't have what it takes to bring Frank to life. I am particularly irritated by the limping relationship between Frank and his daughter Nicole.

Talk about Cold Quarry (Frank Pavlicek Mysteries, 3)


Rageseeker
Having read the first two in the series, they ere compelling enough to continue. At times, the character development is spotty or lacking though the basis for the story is interesting and there are some twists and turns. Even Frank P character development is a bit one dimensional with only glimpses of the person.

Cold Quarry ISBN 9780984131761, first published by Signet, an imprint of Penguin Putnam Inc. is a Frank Pavlicek Mystery by Andy Straka.
The death of Frank's old buddy Chester Carew while engaged in Falconry in the West Virginia Mountains brings him to Charlestown for the funeral. The death is from a gunshot to the back that the local police are attempting to rule off as a `hunter or poacher error' since it is on Chester's property and hunter's `mistakes' are not totally unusual. Chester's falcon also is missing and while Frank is perusing the area of the death for possible signs of the missing falcon and even possible clues to the death, he is accosted by a masked man with a shotgun. He manages to escape but the encounter seems to obviate the fact that Chester's death was not `accidental'. Jake Toronto, his long-ago police partner and best friend agrees with his evaluation of the situation and they, together with Frank's daughter, Nicole, begin an investigation that they are repeatedly warned to drop by the local police, the FBI and assorted other agencies. The entire plot, which is a little involved, develops slowly but moves well enough and provides an interesting background and roll for Jake.
In summary, as with the other Pavlicek mysteries, the plot, its movement, direction and action again provides an enjoyable, albeit this time a somewhat slowly developing, read. Reviewed by John H. Manhold, award winning fiction/non-fiction author.

I really like the characters in Straka's books. This is the 3rd one I have read and they have become almost like family. Cold Quarry was very good but to me not as good as the first two were. This one got a little to complicated for a feeble brain like mine. That would be my fault, I guess. The complication was with all the mixtures of compounds that to into making a bomb. I got lost.

It was a good story line. Had some surprises and Jake even was written in as a almost normal human. Not a super man than no one could touch.

It is a fast paced book and will hold you attention. As usual Frank sticks his nose where ever he wants, even though he as been told not to by the local Sheriff's office and the FBI. But then that's Frank.

I think most would enjoy this book but I would read them in order as they will make more sense.

Wow. One I could not put down. There was so much excitement, you couldn't turn the pages fast enough. A high energy, packed with so much mystery I couldn't figure out what would happen next. I like a book that has excitement on each page and this one had plenty of that. Read and enjoy.

Makes for a great read....very believable with an intriguing plot, wonderful setting (though a little depressing, as real life can be), and wonderful characters. My first Andy Straka book, but certainly not my last.

Each of this author's books about retired NYC detective Frank Pavlicek, now a Private Investigator, living in western Virginia gets better and more polished as you go through the series sequentially. I looked forward to resuming my read each time I had to break for other needs in my life. The author is, actually, an accomplished falconer who uses his birds of prey to hunt as they do in nature and he weaves these experiences into his story line. I found this 3rd of his series of 5 books to be very enjoyable and I am currently starting the last of his theamed novels. Hopefully he will continue on with the further adventures of this charactor and his now 20 something daughter who has joined her father in "the family business".
Let's say your name is Frank Pavlicek. A private investigator created by Andy Straka who day starts off by attending a funeral of a good friend and fellow falconer. You don't quite make it there before some dude gives you a rap in the chops with a shotgun barrel. Straka then sends the gal you think your in love with on her way because she has better things to do than hang around with you. Well at least things can't get any worse---WRONG! Straka ratchets up the action and tension several notches in this novel. Character profiles from previous books are strengthened giving his best buddy enough mystic to spin-off his own series. Also, Frank's daughter comes to the forefront as a modern Nancy Drew. Straka is still managing to do good writing without vulgarity and gore. He gives you dangerous enemies, suspect friends, and tempting gals. Good job Mr. Straka.
