A violent attacker is on the loose. His calling card: a tattoo on his victims’ skin. With no witnesses and no evidence left at the crime scenes, it will take all of the National Crime Agency’s resources to track him down.
At the head of the investigation, codenamed Operation Juniper, Senior Investigator Joanne Stuart knows that the clock is ticking. The time between abductions is decreasing and the perpetrator grows ever more brazen. She fears it won’t be long before his assaults turn deadly.
As the hunt closes in, Jo’s already troubled personal life is put under further pressure. With danger closer than she thinks, just how far will Jo go to solve the case—and at what cost?

This the second book in the National Crime Agency series and the readers are able to learn more about their favorite characters in the NCA. Who knew just what Ram's opinions on marriage? And of course, we get to learn more about Jo and her relationship issues as well as her past.
This book was a wild ride from the very first when the NCA is invited in to assist the local officers in tracking down a serial rapist who likes to tattoo his victims. It appears that he is always at least one step in from of the law.
I also really enjoyed the fact that the NCA is based in England. I had a blast trying to figure out just what a raincheater actually is. Oh and there are wonderful phrases like 'raining stair rods'.
I do really think that my readers who enjoy a good thriller or police procedural will love THE FALCON TATTOO. Great characters, witty dialogue and a distinct lack of sex means that this is a book that all can enjoy.
