This book reads like a novel, and will totally sweep you along with the intrigue and crimes that surround the colorful world of the exotic bird feather collectors, and the people that facilitate them. You will not believe how feathers have been used, and sought after, through history, and Johnson does his subject justice with extensive research. From fly fishing, to high fashion, this gripping true crime heist, and one man’s obsession to solve it, will keep you breathlessly turning pages. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
