Description: In the chilling and macabre opening to "Birdman", the body of a young woman is found at the millennium dome site in Greenwich, England. Detective Inspector Jack Caffery's initial evaluation of the corpse -- the most brutal degradation of the human form he's ever witnessed -- will forever sear his psyche. But the most striking and perplexing characteristics of the slaying won't be revealed until the coroner's report. Cause of death -- an injection of heroin into the brain stem. Postmortem abuse -- ritual mutilation, including rape and multiple dissection, with foreign tissue found in the victim's chest cavity. A small bird, a finch, has been left in place of the woman's heart. And just when Caffery begins to grapple with the first discovery, four more corpses are found in various stages of decomposition.

Five young women, gone without a trace, found heartless, and not one loved one has filed a missing persons report. Caffery carefully links the victims and finds that they all, at one time or another, worked at a strip club just steps away from a medical school and hospital. With scores of suspects all trained in anatomical dissection, Caffery has very little damning evidence to sort through them all. All he has are five mutilated corpses and five little dead birds. The birdman could just stop killing, but Caffery has a feeling that he's only just started.

With a keen psychological insight, brilliant forensic and procedural detail, and a flawed but charismatic lead investigator, "Birdman" will make the hearts of the most demanding readers of crime fiction skip.
