Operation Bird of Paradise

A Novella by

Sun, sea, and surveillance - sometimes it's not a bad life in the Metropolitan Police. Detective Sergeant Graham Leonard and Fran 'Shorty' Lambert are on the Pacific island of Onuaha, staking out the activities of a charming and seductive gentleman-criminal called James 'Uncle Jim' Henderson.
But sometimes the most routine of operations can go startlingly, dangerously wrong...

Terence Blacker is the author of four novels and writes a twice-weekly column in the Independent. His biography of the writer Willie Donaldson, You Cannot Live As I Have Lived and Not End Up Like This, was BBC Radio 4's book of the week and was described by the Sunday Times as 'utterly gripping... hilarious, heartbreaking.'
His story for teenagers Boy2Girl is currently being developed as a film, and his latest novel for young readers, The Twyning, was published in January 2013.
Reviewing his novel Kill Your Darlings, the Boston Globe wrote, 'Terence Blacker is an angry, smart, and funny man.'
