Death By Muttonbird

Author(s): Simon Dodd

Location(s): Lord Howe Island

Genre(s): Humour, Thriller

Era(s): Modern

A fast-paced comedy thriller with its tongue firmly planted in its cheek. Coronial investigator Jack Slazenger’s holiday on Lord Howe Island is interrupted when American tourist Harvey Jacob is found dead on Muttonbird Drive, with an equally dead muttonbird sticking out of his ear! Was it truly a case of ‘Death By Incompetent Seabird’, or is something more sinister afoot? On his way to find out, Jack discovers a BASE jumper with a death wish, an attractive itinerant dentist, a Polynesian princess on the run, a deranged Swedish amputee, and the secret to a 60-year-old mystery!
