Birds of Prey: The Harlan Coben Challenge
by Allison Brennan

The world's greatest thriller writers prove they're up to a unique challenge in this action-packed, audio-original collection.

It all started with a simple, yet sneakily difficult challenge from global best-selling author Harlan Coben: Pick a bird of prey, then use it as the inspiration for a brand-new story.

The response from some of the best writers on the planet: Game on!

The result: Eleven stories that are twisty, scary, surprising and bursting with imagination. An egg worth more than its weight in gold. A mysterious operative known only as Owl. An eagle-watcher who sees more than she should. Even a story that somehow places the Maltese Falcon in a nursing home.

Birds of Prey: The Harlan Coben Challenge is a highly bingeable audiobook that's a treat for thriller fans.

Introduced by Harlan Coben, Birds of Prey features these stories:

  • "The Coffin Bearer" by Tess Gerritsen
  • "Precious Cargo" by C.J. Box
  • "Owl" by Kathy Reichs
  • "Kudzu" by Ace Atkins
  • "Predator or Prey?" by Heather Graham
  • "Silent as a Shadow" by S.A. Cosby
  • "Jail Birds" by Hank Phillippi Ryan
  • "The Falcon" by Robert Dugoni
  • "Watchers" by Allison Brennan
  • "Red of Beak and Claw" by Gregg Hurwitz
  • "Hawkshaw Hunting" by Kelley Armstrong

Birds of Prey: The Harlan Coben Challenge was created with International Thriller Writers (ITW). C.J. Box served as project editor.
