When Junior Canadian Rangers, Colly and Jaz, visit Colly's uncle on Canada's Arctic coast, they are quick to discover something is amiss. Someone has been hunting gyrfalcons, the official bird of the Northwest Territories. Could it be poachers? During a pretend emergency, Colly and Jaz put two and five together and end up in a terrifying race for their lives!

CM Magazine - February 6, 2009
"A quick read that has enough action and suspense to keep the pages turning...For children who enjoy a bit of escapist fiction with a solid whodunit element, this book fits the bill...Recommended."
Resource Links - December 1, 2008
"A well-written and suspense-filled mystery for children... An excellent addition to a family, school or classroom library."
