    Touching YA story about the close relationship between a woman with a very special pet. All told in the fast-paced present tense with a kidnap and a police force too slow to solve the case in time, it is left to Henry, a pure white homing pigeon, to deliver messages and clues that could save her owner's life. Will they manage to follow the clues and get there on time?
