A Book and a Chat with Steve Kendall

After a long summer it looks all though the seasons are changing, leaves are starting to turn color on trees, and here in Connecticut where I live the children finally after what has seemed half a lifetime, went back to school.

With the evening getting darker, and as the actress said to the bishop “winter draws on” todays author has a book that would to my mind be a must to while away those chilled evening, when the winds is blowing and you’re snug indoors.

Today’s guest, Steve Kendall has been president of an advertising company, journalist and editor. Today he joined us to chat about his debut novel "Follow the Falcon".

Follow the Falcon” is inspired, by the still-unsolved theft of 12 masterpieces from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, in 1990. It is a novel full of mystery and intrigue; the characters are believable and interesting. The twists and keep the reading guessing, it is indeed one of those books you get lost in and lose track of time. Sort of “Artist meets mystery” the result is one great novel well worth your time to check it out.

Steve shared with us many insights into the production of this book, which while currently only available in E-Book format I’m sure will soon be on many a library and book store shelf.

About ”Follow the Falcon”…

The Falcon has a problem: He’s desperate to sell the twelve paintings he stole twelve years earlier from Gladstone, an art museum. The $350-million heist was the biggest in U.S. history—so big there’s a $6-million reward for the paintings’ return.

Brooke Lancaster also has a problem: She’s desperate to do what she loves—paint. But until she has some financial security, she can’t quit her two jobs to find out if she can make a living as a painter.

The Falcon needs a buyer. Brooke needs a windfall.

Suddenly, there’s hope for both. The Falcon gets an offer from a mysterious Frenchman. Brooke gets hope from a dying man’s last words.

With that, Follow The Falcon soars from a chateau-like museum outside Boston to the winding roads of the Cote d’Azur, from the dunes of Cape Cod to Thoreau’s ancient grave. Brooke pursues a dream while thieves, Mafia goons and unscrupulous art aficionados pursue her. At stake: fortune, freedom and twelve masterpieces.
