Daily Kindle Bargains - The Birds by Herschel Cozine

The Birds by Herschel Cozine is available on Kindle for just $1.50.


Gingerbread houses. Poisoned apples. Huffing and puffing until a house is blown down. Nathaniel P. Osgood III, intrepid private eye in the land of nursery rhymes and fairy tales, has truly seen it all. Until now.

When the royal family is attacked by four and twenty blackbirds baked into a pie, Osgood knows this isn't just another everyday case. As the suspects and clues begin to mount, Osgood begins to wonder if anyone will survive to live happily ever after.

From the Reviewers:

"With The Birds, author Hershel Cozine spins a deliciously wicked little fantasy fairy tale. Readers will recognize many of the characters from the famous nursery rhymes of their childhood, cleverly blended into a delightful, light mystery. This short is satisfying for an adult while still safe enough for a child to read. If you’re in the mood to relive the nursery rhymes of your past with a special kind of twist, give The Birds a read, it will bring a smile to your face."
--Stesha, Night Owl Suspense

"I recommended this story as a child-friendly story, but only older children (at least 9 or 10) will understand the implications. It's so cute and several great Nursery characters were introduced! If you're a grown-up who likes an occasional cute read, this is a good one!"
