A true crime story for us bird nerds

I initially picked this up because I'm a huge bird nerd but this book is so much more than just another non-fiction book about birds. It is the true story of how a twenty year old American pulled off the largest rare, exotic bird heist in history. It wonderfully combines true crime, art, and natural history making it a wonderful read for folks weary of non-fiction. You'll also be amazed at just how interesting and gripping the world of Victorian-style fishing flies can be.
