Summary
Circus-performer-turned-PI Mongo takes on "the CIA, neo-Nazis, and Haitian voodoo terrorists" in a grand finale that is "even more fun than usual" (Booklist). With a genius IQ, a past career as a circus acrobat, and a black belt in karate, criminology professor Dr. Robert Frederickson-better known as "Mongo the Magnificent"-has a decidedly unusual background for a private investigator. He also just so happens to be a dwarf. Investigating illegal CIA activities in Haiti leads Mongo and his brother, former NYPD cop Garth Frederickson, to a grisly discovery: five victims of voodoo ritual sacrifice. But that's just the first surprise. Soon they uncover a wildly ambitious assassination plot that not only puts them in the cross hairs but also has the potential to change the fate of the United States forever . . . Employing his "unlimited imagination" and talent for creating "terrific suspense" in the Mongo mystery series, author George C. Chesbro delivers a climax that pulls out all the stops (Publishers Weekly). Dream of a Falling Eagle is the 14th book in the Mongo Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order
