In solving the puzzle of what happens to birds when they die, a schoolboy encounters a reckless plan that could soon make them all extinct!
Mason Wilson isn’t just another wimpy kid; wimps don't embark on an unauthorized night-time trip to a strange, old factory owned by the mysterious Mr Finch! He'll do anything to stop his penniless family being thrown out of their home. There's a mystery to solve to win a grand cash prize, you see - if you hardly ever find dead birds lying around, why are whole flocks starting to fall from the sky all over the place? Does the Bible really say that it’s a sign of the end of the world?
Mason uncovers some gross goings-on and reckless plans that could change the world for ever. Should he do what he knows is the right thing and try and stop them? He’ll lose an opportunity of a lifetime if he does; still, when his parents find out he's gone missing, that will be the least of his worries!
A wholesome mystery/adventure story aimed especially at 9-12's.
