Seattle has quarantine centers set up to handle the coronavirus. But if you test positive, how will they treat you?

Jeff Lendrum, The Falcon Thief

Two years ago, a man named Jeff Lendrum was stopped at Heathrow airport.

The wild story is documented in Joshua Hammer’s new book The Falcon Thief: A True Tale of Adventure, Treachery, and the Hunt for the Perfect Bird.
