Talons A Novel by W.G. Griffiths

A review for readers favorite.com

This is a great suspenseful story with its own twists and mysteries. I found Talons a fresh kind of tale that will delight many lovers of birds of pray. It is an interesting and well-researched mystery tale with a touch of romance. Talons is a very creative and interesting novel that will keep you hooked to the end. This novel has all the ingredients for a great story. Dead people, murders, police, an insurance investigator, bad guys, and the cute girl are all there.

Jesse and Angela work in the same insurance company. One day they get together with a couple of friends to have fun at the beach. Everything goes swell because Jesse likes Angela and his friends click with Angela’s friend instantaneously. On their way home, an eagle starts to follow them. Not knowing why, they keep an eye on the bird of pray. Their instincts prove right when the eagle dives toward their car, more specifically toward Angela. In their mad dash to escape from it, Angela crashes the car into a tree. Jesse flies out, crash-landing a few feet from the car. When his best friend, Tommy, runs from the car to see how he is, the eagle swoops down to kill him. Now this is weird, I know, but it gets weirder when another man, somewhat connected with the insurance company, is killed by another eagle—and this one has a partner. Is it a coincidence or murder? That is what the police are working on. Will they find the culprit before they all die?

I would recommend Talons for readers from young adults to adults alike. It has some unnecessary swear words but they are few and far between. It could use a light editing to make the story move faster.
