Item description for Flight of the Sparrows by Laura Baumbach...
Black Ops Leader Daniel Burke is beginning to tire of his lonely nomad's lifestyle, but he stays in the game because he's good at it, loyal and he feels a bond of brotherhood for his longtime teammates. When someone starts to dog his trail, it leads him and his team back to England where his career and life took a different turn eighteen years ago. Now people want him dead and they are willing to take his team out with him. Enter teenager computer whiz Quill Tarquin who hacks into secret government files detailing joint, clandestine operations between American and British forces and stumbles on something much more sinister. Suddenly Burke and his boys have their hands full with assassins, internal betrayals and career changes. And now they're get to play father to an orphaned teenage terrorist dropped into their laps. Taking flight seems the only answer. "Exquisite writing and good description dominate this book. Baumbach creates strong characters, with interesting personalities that any reader can relate to. The story is fluid. The words flow together well, melding to make an inspiring story. Flight of the Sparrows has a plot thick with intrigue, adventure and unexpected twists. The author easily melts character analysis together with action-packed prose. " ....Rocky Riechman, TCM Reviews

Reviews - What do customers think about Flight of the Sparrows?
Good Read Aug 5, 2007
At first it was hard to get into. I was expecting somethign else entirely, however it quickly became a book worth reading. Bastard son finds black-ops father and then the fun really begins. The author has written some gay books but this is not one of them.
Not what I expected, but better Jun 20, 2007
I'm not sure what I expected after reading the book blurb, but what I found was a touching story of a "lost" boy and a "lost" father finding each other. How does a teenage boy handle the trauma of death and personal jeopardy? How does a man who has spent his entire life being a warrior deal with the responsibility of a hurt and frightened boy? There is plenty of action and suspense to help the plot along so the reader doesn't have to worry about getting bogged down in emotion. Read the book without preconceptions and you'll find this a great read.
