Win The Parrot's Tale by Miller Caldwell

The Parrot's Tale by Miller Caldwell

The Parrot’s Tale by Scottish author Miller Caldwell (New Generation Publishing, paperback, RRP £9.50) is a unique mixture of comedy, crime, thriller and farce which tells the laugh-out-loud escapades of African grey parrot Kofi, whose disappearance sparks an unlikely double quest – to track down a missing pet, and to bring an international trafficking gang to its knees.

At 85, Harry Dynes is a reluctant celebrity. From OAP to VIP, almost overnight. So much so that movie producers are vying for multi-million dollar film rights. But he’s been in the headlines for weeks thanks to the antics of Kofi, his missing parrot. Since vanishing from Harry’s Dumfries home, Kofi's escapades resolving medical, legal, sporting and social situations have played-out in the international press and to an eager audience of millions.

But Harry’s search for Kofi takes a sinister turn when his friend’s daughter, Morag, is snatched by a gang of human traffickers. As the hunt continues, Kofi – the celebrity African Grey – may be about to pull his biggest stunt of all, and be forever cemented in the annals of British policing history.

Described as “totally unique, completely original, and quite unlike anything else on the shelves”, The Parrot's Tale is a heart-warming and fun-loving novel not to miss.
