But he is not alone in wanting to possess the Greater Crested Trill Warbler¸ and others covet this seemingly unique specimen. The characters¸ at a loose end in the nefarious alleys of Port Grimsand¸ are hired to liberate the bird from Scabrous¸ and must find a way of making it theirs.
Naturally though¸ not all is as it seems¸ and soon the characters find themselves on a dangerous expedition into the Tane Jungle¸ on a quest to prevent something terrible and powerful from laying waste to all life on the island.
