Cambridge linguist Edvard Tossentern, presumed dead, reappears after a balloon crash. When he staggers in from a remote swamp, gravely ill and swollen beyond recognition, his colleagues at the research station are overjoyed. But Edvard's discovery about a rare giant bird throws them all into the path of an international crime ring. The Weaver Fish is a gripping adventure story. Set on the island nation of Ferendes in the South China Sea, this book's sound science and mathematical playfulness will make you question all that you know, or think you know, about weaver fish, giant condors, the infamous tornado-proof Reckles (R) Texan hat, and much much more.

Review quote

"Evocative writing, in which the science is an essential character. The ideas stimulate and mesmerize." --Robyn Williams, ABC Radio National, The Science Show "Fiendishly clever . . . a novel unlike anything you've read before." --Tim Coronel, Books+Publishing "That Edeson can balance action cliches with gorgeous scientific asides is proof of his unique gifts." --Australian Book Review
