Editorial Reviews


"A sold and engaging original story for a new series of international thrillers." - Kirkus Reviews

From the Back Cover

Butcher of Chamé (pronounced "chah-may"), the first installment in this exciting new series, introduces Max Springer, a former CIA Agent.
Thanks to a generous inheritance following the accidental death of his parents, Max is able to retire while in his early 50's, relatively young and very healthy.  Max chooses Panamá as his retirement destination and purchases a condo in Play a Coronado where he will be able to fish, SCUBA dive, run on the beach, and finally learn to golf.
Max has been to Panamá before. As a CIA Agent, he made frequent trips from Washington, D.C. to Panamá, carrying equipment and messages to operatives working in country during the regime General Manuel Noriega. During one such trip in 1988,Max was captured, imprisoned and tortured. Max didn't break; he didn't give up the names of the CIA operatives in country.  In fact, he continued to deny being anything other than a businessman. Knowing that time was running out, he planned and successfully executed a daring escape.
Fast forward to 2016 where Max is settling into his new life in one of Panamá's predominately ex-pat communities.  He goes to the local wine shop to make a few purchases when he hears a voice, a voice he'll never forget.  Max's heart catches in his throat.  He can barely breathe or even move.  That gravelly voice, like a coarserope being dragged across an unfinished wooden floor, is the voice of the man who had interrogated Max 25 years ago. That voice can belong to only one man, the infamous Butcher of Chamé.  The Butcher of Chamé had, at one time, been a fugitive, a war criminal wanted for his many crimes against humanity, first in Panamá and later in Colombia.  He had never been caught.  No one knew if he was dead or hiding somewhere under an assumed identity.  Until now.
Max reaches out to a trusted friend at the CIA, in order to ascertain whether the Butcher is still "wanted."  What follows is an exciting action adventure that will leave readers begging for more.  And Bird delivers that "more" in the Max Springer trilogy.
Enjoy this debut novel, an action-packed thriller you won't want to put down.
