Description:
“Fascinating from the first page to the last—you won’t be able to put it down.”—Southern Living

“Thrilling.” —Bustle, “The 9 Most Anticipated True Crime Books of 2018”

“A captivating tale . . . Everything the author touches in this thoroughly engaging true-crime tale turns to storytelling gold . . . Johnson’s flair for telling an engrossing story is, like the beautiful birds he describes, exquisite . . . A superb tale about obsession, nature, and man’s ‘unrelenting desire to lay claim to its beauty, whatever the cost.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“[An] enthralling account of a truly bizarre crime . . . Johnson goes deep into the exotic bird and feather trade and concludes that though obsession and greed know no bounds, they certainly make for a fascinating tale. The result is a page-turner that will likely appeal to science, history, and true crime readers.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

A rollicking true-crime adventure and a captivating journey into an underground world of fanatical fly-tiers and plume peddlers, for readers of The Stranger in the Woods, The Lost City of Z, and The Orchid Thief.
