    'Have you ever been plucked, tied up, and suspended upside-down over a vat of boiling black liquid?
    Probably not.
    If I could give you one word of advice in this regard, it would be:
    don’t.
    '

    Another hilarious, and yet very serious investigation led by Seamus the private detective.

    Who said turkeys couldn’t solve mysteries?

    Seamus might not be the best private investigator in town. In fact he might be the worst. But he’s certainly the only one who is a turkey.

    Frank Bloombum, baboon and two-time BusinessMonkey of the Year, is going bananas. Security breaches threaten his top-secret money-printing facility. Sounds like a case for the The Free Range Detective Agency!

    Who might be responsible? The baboon, the jackal or the newt? And what about the toad Frank accidentally flushed down the toilet all those years ago?

    “Jed and Stephen have done it again, with another crazy, slightly anarchic, extremely Irish turkey detective …  Funny, clever, and just weird enough for kids to really enjoy … A fantastic read.” – Read and Reviewed

    The Baboon with the Golden Bum has all the ingredients of a great detective story in which everyone is trying to outwit everyone else.” – Scope for Imagination

    “Jed Lynch has crafted another hilarious, and yet serious investigation led by ‘Seamus the private detective’ …  A gimmick within the book is the inclusion of a postcard pre-addressed to ‘Seamus the private detective’ c/o the Dublin postal address of the Publisher. It’s great to see this old world use of engagement, as it will encourage children to practice their handwriting, having already practiced their reading.” – The Cork.ie

    “Clever, quirky and compelling, it will keep you glued to the page.” – Fallen Star Stories

    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.
