His first task is to find and eliminate the person or people behind the attack. However, there are some in Washington who dislike The University and would see it destroyed.

A Murder of Crows by Terrence McCauley is the 2nd entry of the new James Hicks series. It picks up shortly after McCauley’s inaugural book of the series, Sympathy for the Devil, which I have not yet read. However, based on this book, McCauley is a rising star in the genre of thriller fiction. His characters are real, the plot engaging and fast moving. Admittedly, secret government groups are not a new plot element but McCauley successfully pulls it off in a fresh and interesting way. I look forward to the continuation of this series and rate it 4/5 stars.
