This is an auction for THE CONJUROR'S BIRD by Martin Davies.

"THE CONJUROR'S BIRD is a gripping book of literary suspense . . . Davies indulges in clever speculation about the bird's whereabouts and adds an appealing strain of romance surrounding the identity of Banks's mistress . . . A captivating novel."
- a *** starred *** review in Publishers Weekly (US)

"Suspenseful, intriguing, and romantic, THE CONJUROR'S BIRD is great entertainment and an excellent choice for book discussion groups; highly recommended."

Amazon.com review:

"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, it'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 -and dangerous - than the search for a stuffed bird. To solve the puzzle, he must uncover the identity of the amazing woman Banks loved - 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."
