Summary

A Richard and Judy Book Club selection.

It seems a long time ago that Fitz and Gabby were together, back when his work on extinct species was 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.
