The Conjuror's Bird

Martin Davies

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Thriller / suspense, Historical fiction

The bestselling CONJUROR'S BIRD is a dazzling 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.
