The Falcon Dirk takes the reader on a fascinating journey from Kansas to the halls of Trinity College, Dublin, as Matt West searches for answers to an ancient mystery. The narrative takes several unexpected twists along the way, which keep the reader guessing and wanting more. The action is fast-paced, the locales are bathed in local color, and the characters are realistic and interesting.
This is a wonderful first effort. I am told that a second Matt West novel is in the works, and I look forward to seeing where Mr. Vanderpool takes his protagonist next.
I loved the plot and the premise but I found the story too slow. It delved into minutia in the lives of the characters so much so that it slowed the pacing. It was realistic (some of these type of novels border on fantasy) with believable characters and descriptive narratives of the surroundings.
I enjoyed the book.
When I found that an old childhood friend had written a book, I was so excited. I downloaded it immediately. Then came the UH OH. What if I didn't like it? What would I say? So I got a couple of friends to get it, and give me a review. I can't ignore a book though, so of course I started to read. I'm glad I did, even though it made me homesick for the places and friends that it so easily brought to mind.
As I have gotten older, I read a lot more history than anything else. Mysteries, I consider my escape reading. This book ties both of my favorites into one.
I hope this is just the first in a long series of Matt West mysteries. I'll be waiting, (impatiently), for the next one.
Buy this book, you'll be glad you did.

Unfortunately, the book lets the reader down with the characterisation. None of the characters have any depth at all, we don't have any real insight into their feelings and events don't seem to disturb them particularly (at least not as much as you would think). I found the banter between the characters to be unrealistic (and not really amusing) and they didn't come alive for me.
The plot and the story were good enough and it was an engaging enough read but i never really felt involved with the people.
In other words I enjoyed it - it was not taxing - and assume from the ending that there will be more adventures for the potential love birds!
