The Bayliss family is on the move again, this time to Narralong, home of the famous Splinter Island Bird Sanctuary.

Taya's father is there to investigate a change in the breeding habits of the local birds - or so he says.

Taya has a bad feeling about this trip and an injury to Chris seems to confirm her concerns.

A recurring dream, a series of lies and the discovery of a body on the beach lead Taya to suspect that her father is involved in something far more serious than he is saying.

​Taya's relationship with her father is challenged in this environmental mystery.
