To flocks of inquisitive samll town lads, the condemned Vicotrian mansion is as mesmerizing as the hundreds of finches flitting in the overgrown aviary behind it. Yet those who venture beyond the gates are soon as powerless as the fragile winged cratures imprisoned by the mesh cage overhead. For a bizzare stranger lurks in the shadow of the curmbing walls, patiently waiting for the right moment to swoop in for the kills....

One by one, the boys of Manchester are disappearing form the overngrown garden. Haunted by his own broken promise to the mother of the first child, a promise to bring her son home alive, Detective Prker is determined to unmask the predator. TO do so, he must unlock the twisted secrets held captive in the complex mind of a killer who is, even now, circling his next prey.....

Excellent book. Very well written. Not gory, you knew bad things were happening but the author chose to let you imagine them rather than describe in detail.
