Publisher Description

A bestselling Richard and Judy Book Club title, The Conjuror's Bird is a dazzling debut novel, spanning three centuries of secrets and surprises.

It seems a long time ago that Fitz and Gabby were together, with his work on extinct species about to make him world-famous. Now, it's his career that is almost extinct.

Suddenly, though, the beautiful Gabby reappears in his life. She wants his help in tracing the history of The Mysterious Bird of Ulieta, a creature once owned by the great 18th Century naturalist Joseph Banks.

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 bestseller.

GREAT BOOK

An excellent page turner, loved the mix of history with a modern day thriller. Good location writing about Lincolnshire, which brought the area to life. A liked the way it was written in two sections, so following the story as it was and as it also unfolded kept the pace moving. I would recommend this book.
