|One summer evening in 2009 twenty year old music prodigy broke into Tring museum. Hours later he left with a suitcase full of rare bird specimens all featuring an array of priceless feathers.
The author Kirk Wallace Johnson heard about the heist from a fishing guide. And he decided to investigate the theft which led him to forums and even the Bristol branch of the fly dressers guild. Arkle will remember this. The author embarked on a mission to discover more.
The book is a story of a bizarre crime which grips the reader or it did at least me.
Available from Amazon at around £13.00 for 297 pages in hardback.
