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, itâ€™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 â€“ and dangerous â€“ than the search for a stuffed bird. To solve the puzzle, he must uncover the identity of the amazing woman Banks loved â€“ 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.
