Benjamin Fielder, the acclaimed but retiring environmentalist, writer, illustrator, and animal welfare campaigner, lives quietly in a secluded cottage in the Channel Islands. He shares his home with his wife Elspeth, three dogs, two cats and a parakeet.

His passions include bird watching, angling from the cliffs and beaches, and the peace of the countryside where he observes wild animals in their natural habitat.

It is here that he formulated the idea for this book, which is based on a true event.

This is his third novel.
