Would you risk your career for a few feathers? One evening in June 2009, a young virtuoso musician destined for a brilliant career commits an incongruous heist: after performing at a concert at the Royal Academy of Music in London, he sneaks into the Tring Museum of Natural History to steal hundreds of birds that have been stored there for decades.
Even more surprisingly, he did not steal the jewels of the collection collected by Darwin, but rather the paradise birds and other brightly colored birds brought back to Europe by a little-known 19th century naturalist. Kirk Wallace Johnson first heard of this story while fly fishing. Fascinated by the case, he embarks on a fascinating investigation in search of these missing feathers, and questions our obsession with beauty and our desire to possess it, at any cost.
