This book follows the journey of John Fitzgerald in his search to find the only known specimen of the Mysterious Bird of Ulieta, last known to be in the possession of naturalist Joseph Banks.

The book jumps from past to present, slowly unravelling historical and current mysteries, with unexpected conclusions.

The characters are interesting and well created, and the story is well paced and enthralling. It also managed to present ornithology, a topic I've never really looked into, in a fascinating manner, accessible to anyone.
