A playful and brilliantly funny take on detective noir fiction with an all-animal cast of characters.

Product Description

‘I laughed so much I laid an egg. I wish I wrote it. GENIUS.’
Dustin the Turkey

Shady snakes, thuggish pigs, a cat in a fur coat and a mystery to be solved. The Free Range Detective Agency is on the case!

Seamus the private investigator is no chicken. He’s a turkey. And after the disastrous case of the Rampaging Rhinoceros, his feathers are a little ruffled.

This turkey always knew he shouldn’t trust a cat in a fur coat, but when Ms Ermine comes slinking in with a clawful of cash, he just can’t say no. Soon he’s up to his beak in a case involving a sinister snake, pigs with piercings and a meerkat called Elvis.

‘Absolutely ridiculous. Who would trust a turkey to solve a murder?’
Sherlock Holmes

Praise for Murder Most Fowl:

‘Funny, sweet, and beautifully illustrated.’ – Sue Leonard, Irish Examiner

    My nine year old son really enjoyed this book. He found it funny and interesting and he read in a couple of days which is always a good sign. He hopes that they make a second murder most fowl.
