The novels of New York Times best-selling author J.F. Freedman combine gritty realism with gripping suspense. Bird's-Eye View is a vivid thriller that will keep listeners enthralled from start to finish. Ex-collegiate professor turned loner, Fritz Tullis dropped out of academia for all the right reasons. He now spends his time thinking, drinking, fishing and photographing birds from a sweltering, screen-windowed shack at the edge of a swamp in southern Maryland. One morning, spying on birds with his telephoto lens, Fritz spots a plane landing on an airstrip across the bay. When he witnesses a deadly gunfight erupt outside the plane, Fritz, against his better judgement, is compelled to investigate further. Narrator Tom Stechschulte deftly navigates through Freedman's winding story as the stakes get higher and higher and Fritz's once quiet life is transformed into chaos.

"Fritz Tullis has retreated to a ramshackled fishing cabin on Maryland family property to lick his emotional wounds when his life as a college professor falls apart after his affair with the dean's wife. Bird watching and photography, and drinking, are his main pursuits, and the first two cause him to witness and capture on film a murder. His involvement leads to danger, as well as changes in his life, as he tries to determine whom he can trust. Tom Stechschulte's narration reflects the weariness and apathy that have crept into Fritz's life; then the narration picks up speed and tension as Fritz learns about a high-level cover-up. Stechschulte inhabits all the characters, superbly conveying age, power, and gender. A gripping story makes for a satisfying thriller, beautifully read. M.A.M.
