It soon becomes clear that Fitz is getting involved in something more complicated, and dangerous, than the search for a stuffed bird. To solve the puzzle, he must uncover the identity of the amazing woman Banks loved, a woman who has disappeared from history as effectively as the specimen he is hunting.
A mixture of detection, romance and history, The Conjuror's Bird has all the makings of a word-of-mouth best seller.
"A pacy confection of history, mystery and romance...a most engaging and unusual novel." (The Times)
"This novel will not disappoint fans of literary mystery and readers who are drawn to naturalist accounts." (Booklist)
