    'Who goes to a private detective when they don't have a problem? It's like going to a hospital to tell them that you've never felt better, and would the nice doctor mind examining you, please?'

    A hilarious, and yet very serious investigation led by Seamus the private detective. Who said turkeys couldn’t solve mysteries?

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

    You should never trust a cat in a fur coat, but when Ms Ermine comes slinking in with a clawful of cash, Seamus 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.

    It’s all a bit much for a turkey to handle. Especially because turkeys don’t have any hands.

     

    'Funny, sweet, and beautifully illustrated.' – The Irish Examiner

    'I laughed so much I laid an egg. GENIUS. The world has a new top turkey.' –  Dustin the Turkey

    Jed Lynch is a human author from Ireland. He has co-written a number of plays, including one about a floating house and another about a giant singing brain. Murder Most Fowl is the first thing that he has co-written with a turkey. Seamus, a private detective who just happens to be a turkey, provides the exciting storylines based on the cases he has worked, as well as all of the feathers, wings and beaks in the partnership. Jed, on the other hand, provides the hands. He has a pet reindeer and is learning to play the trumpet.
