Author of the acclaimed children’s series, The Last Wild Trilogy, Piers Torday reflects on his father Paul Torday’s (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) final novel. Finished posthumously by Piers, Death of an Owl is an intriguing tale of British politics and revenge, described by Chris Bryant MP as a delightful gothic fantasy with an element of taut anger.
