The Cry of the Cuckoos
The cuckoo bird is a master of deception, fooling other species in their race to copy their chirping begging call. When Donald Drummond and his wife, Anne, chase after the killer of his father, Henry Drummond, they find themselves up against a radical right wing supremacist organization called the Society of Southern Patriots and. like the cuckoo bird, deception is the Society's mission. The couple unravels a terrorist plot which will kill Washington dignitaries at the Super Bowl and delegates at the United Nations. Donald, a retired news reporter, and Anne, a retired school teacher, unfold the mystery leading them on a wild chase from Alabama to Texas. And one of the many murder suspects is Donald's biological mother, Betty Jo Duke, who he only just met after his father's death. Donald and Anne are hired as informants by the FBI to unravel the mysterious case and they get a lot more than they bargained for. "The author is clearly a good writer, with sufficient description, dialogue, scenes and sequels (places in the book where main character is found between the scene having just taken place and the scene yet to come). The author has made good use of the five senses, as well as his descriptions of people and places, to create and weave a good tale."
