“Frank Pavlicek is a breath of fresh air in the field of private eye fiction-witty, sharp, and flesh-and-blood real.” — NY Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver
When terror strikes home, the answers are less than clear. In this suspense-filled thriller master falconer Chester Carew is found shot to death in the woods, the apparent victim of a deer hunter’s errant round. But private investigator Frank Pavlicek smells something far more deadly than a simple hunting accident. Something is contaminating the surrounding woods–something neither the local authorities nor the Feds seem willing to discuss. Things go from bad to worse when Frank’s best friend and fellow falconer Jake Toronto appears to be implicated in the murder. Seeking justice for one friend and exoneration for another, Pavlicek threatens to uncover a group of domestic terrorists with a chilling agenda.

A nyone alive in the eighteenth century would have known that “the longitude problem” was the thorniest scientific dilemma of the day-and had been for centuries. Lacking the ability to measure their longitude, sailors throughout the great ages of exploration had been literally lost at sea as soon as they lost sight of land. Thousands of lives, and the increasing fortunes of nations, hung on a resolution. The scientific establishment of Europe-from Galileo to Sir Isaac Newton-had mapped the heavens in both hemispheres in its certain pursuit of a celestial answer. In stark contrast, one man, John Harrison, dared to imagine a mechanical solution-a clock that would keep precise time at sea, something no clock had ever been able to do on land. Longitude is the dramatic human story of an epic scientific quest, and of Harrison’s forty-year obsession with building his perfect timekeeper, known today as the chronometer. Full of heroism and chicanery, it is also a fascinating brief history of astronomy, navigation, and clockmaking, and opens a new window on our world.
