To renowned ornithologist and bird artist Jonathan Wilder, it is a situation that becomes more and more strange with each turn of events. First, a local politician with whom he had publicly argued is found dead in a cornfield, propped up like a scarecrow. Then it is realized that the murder weapon not only is covered in Jonathan's fingerprints, but came from his house. Once he becomes the prime suspect in the murder, Jonathan knows he must catch the real killer before his own time runs out.
