First edition. Fine in dust jacket. Louis Antioch, a young student, is asked to help a wealthy Swiss ornithologist, Max Boehm, understand why the storks haven't returned from Central Africa as they always have. Before they begin researching, Max is found murdered in very bizarre circumstances. In several other countries same-style murders are also occurring ... murders where the victims' hearts are removed. Who is behind these crimes and why? Are you aware that storks are capable of carrying valuable items under their legs while flying?
