Críticas:

best suited to a fireside on a winter's night, but it's no less satisfying for that (DAILY MAIL)

A delightful Gothic fantasy... Witty and well-crafted - completed with panache (THE GUARDIAN)

Compelling blend of morality and satire (SUNDAY MIRROR)

Skeweringly accurate... The Death of an Owl will ring true with anyone who has ever hate politicians or fallen out of love (EVENING STANDARD)

The Death of an Owl makes the journey from well-crafted and urbane political novel to spooky melodrama with elegance. A pleasure to read (DAILY EXPRESS)

Piers has taken up the story so perfectly that you can't see the join. (THE TIMES)

Reseña del editor:

Political chaos, MPs turning on each other, expediency and skulduggery at the highest echelons of government? No, not Brexit, but a brilliant political satire from the bestselling author of SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN

Andrew Landford, MP is driving home one night along a dark country lane when a barn owl flies into his windscreen. It is an accident, nothing more. But Andrew sits on a parliamentary committee concerned with the protection of endangered species, and the death of the owl threatens to destroy his hopes of reaching No. 10.
Also in the car is Andrew's old Oxford friend and political adviser, Charles Fryerne. Will they be able to keep the crime under wraps, or will circumstances conspire against them?

Paul Torday's last novel, and completed by his son Piers, this is a timely reminder that in politics, nothing is sacred...
