Abstract:

In ddep retirement in the English countryside, a very elderly man, vaguely recalled by locals as a once-famous detective, is more concerned with his beekeeping than with his fellow man. into his life wanders Linus Steinman, mute, nine-years-old orphan, who has barely escaped nazi germany with an Arican Gray parrot as his sole companion. What is the meaning of the mysterious strings of german numbers the bird spews out --- a top-secret SS code? the keys to a series of Swiss bank accounts? or some thing more sinister? Is the solution to this last case ---- the true explanation of a mysterious boy and his parrot ---- beyond the reach of this once-famed sleuth?
