About this title


Nothing could excite Dr. Beach O’Neill more than the dream of discovering an unknown species in some exotic rain forest. His and his girlfriend’s world is flipped out of control when a ranch hand reports seeing a strange red bird on the banks of an isolated Texas river. Things turn bad when Beach discovers a mutilated body and the sheriff thinks he’s the killer. Thus begins a reckless contest between O’Neill and an array of despotic villains who wish to be the first persons on Earth to possess a “Scarlet Kingfisher.” Unsavory characters want Beach and Becky out of the way and off the trail of this unique avian rarity. O’Neill is torn between his obsessive desire to capture the bird and present it to science and Becky’s wish to let it remain in its river home as nature intended. Will this red kingfisher and two different world views mean the end? Will disparate forces have their way?
