About the book

A mystery lies hidden within an old book...

Unlock the secrets of The Birdcage Library by Freya Berry, author of The Dictator's Wife, as seen on BBC2 Between the Covers.

'Gothic, gorgeous and vividly atmospheric; an immersive literary page-turner to be swept up in' ELLERY LLOYD

'I was drawn into this powerful book. Dark and multi layered... Claustrophobic and clever storytelling' JANE SHEMILT

'A twisty, atmospheric tale full of dark secrets and hidden clues. A compulsive read' KATE HAMER
_________

Dear Reader, the man I love is trying to kill me...

Emily Blackwood, adventuress and plant hunter, travels north for a curious new commission. A gentleman has written to request she catalogue his vast collection of taxidermied creatures before sale.


On arrival, Emily finds a ruined castle, its owner haunted by a woman who vanished years before. And when she discovers the ripped pages of a diary, crammed into the walls, she realises dark secrets lie here, waiting to entrap her too...

A rich, beguiling story of long-buried secrets and dark obsession, The Birdcage Library will hold you in its spell until the final page.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
