Book Description

Jan. 16 2006
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.

Product Description

Review

"* 'A pacy confection of history, mystery and romance... a most engaging and unusual novel' - The Times * 'Two gripping, intercut narratives... a lyricism that captures the joy of the natural world... a highly successful and informative entertainment' - Independent * '[an] absorbing historical detective story... a beautifully evoked narrative from the past' - Guardian * 'Ideal for book clubs, ideal too for any lover of commercial literary fiction. An exciting and absorbing debut novel from Davies.' - Publishing News * 'Poignant and beguiling... like all the best novels, it left me with a sense of having learned something.' - Andrew Taylor, author of The American Boy * "[A] gripping book of literary suspense.... Davies indulges in clever speculation about the bird's whereabouts and adds an appealing strain of romance surrounding the identity of Banks's mistress.... A captivating novel." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) * "Suspenseful, intriguing, and romantic, this is great entertainment and an excellent choice for book discussion groups; highly recommended." - Library Journal (starred review)"
