"An albino huia, a stranger in the attic and a pink-haired woman. Bird Murder is a gothic murder mystery telling of the demise of a ruined banker, set in the not-quite-fictional town of Tusk. At the heart of the story is the sacred bird, the huia: its beauty, curiosity and fluted conversation, and the consequences of its slaughter by early settlers. As evening falls and Mr Cockatrice and his wife prepare for a party, questions surface. Are the gimlet-eyed creatures in the bird room capable of revenge? Is the stranger perching in the attic more than he seems? Or is the temptation of a fine head of cherry'd hair reason enough to murder?"--Provided by publisher.
