Terrifying Tuesday! Falcon's Pray

Welcome to another installment of Terrifying Tuesdays! 


Although at this point I cannot guarantee that I will have one of these posts available every week, I will try as I bring you heart-stopping action from some of my works...as well as (hopefully) a few pieces from other authors.


My overriding goal for Terrifying Tuesdays is to get the reader's blood flowing...and their mind working...and their skin tingling...well...you get the point (grin). I will attempt to do this by delving into various genres, including action, mystery, suspense and even horror (Especially around Halloween!).


My selection this week is the opening scene in my second Nick Behr novel...Falcon's Pray! Although relatively short, I think it adequately sets the tone for the whole story. 

After the excerpt you will find some buy links for the book if you are interested. :)



Thanks...And I hope you enjoy it!


Falcon's Pray

Tuesday, September 2

The brown eyes in the scope show no fear.

The man takes another few seconds to look upon the animal through the lens, admiring the sleek lines of the animal. This is their place in life: he the hunter, the deer the food.

Taking a final breath, he lets it out slowly until it is almost gone before patiently squeezing the trigger.

The sound of the shot.
The comforting compression on his shoulder.
The animal disappearing from the scope as it drops to the ground.

This was the way of things: the hunter…and the hunted.

Hearing something off to his right, the man quickly swings the gun…following the sound until he finds the source of the noise.

Binoculars…trained on him.

She lowers them when she sees him pointing the gun at her.

The blue eyes in the scope show fear. The man takes another few seconds to look upon her through the lens, admiring her sleek lines.

He lets out a sigh…before slowly squeezing the trigger.

The sound of the shot.
The comforting compression on his shoulder.
The girl disappearing from the scope as she drops to the ground.

This was the way of things: the hunter…and the hunted.
