The Bird Yard Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Bird Yard

Boys are going missing in Manchester, England at an alarming rate and Inspector Parker has the idea that it has something to do with a local pedophile and his aviary. day. This more of a police procedurural, as there is no doubt who is responsible. The question is how Parker can prove his case and stop the disappearances. It is only moderately violent, but very creepy! Highly recommended for those who are interested in the darker side of the human psyche.
