The Dinosaur Feather

According to a review of the English translation in today's Wash Post (I 
actually get the print edition), it seems that a S J Gazen murder mystery The 
Dinosaur Feather has been a big hit in Denmark for a few years. The title is 
not merely allegorical, the book is about the hellish murder of a Danish 
paleontologist who works on bird origins (the reviewer correctly describes the 
current state of the science). Most paleos being a weird and insular bunch 
(this writer obviously excepted) we are of course prone to liquiditating one 
another by ingenius means -- we lose one or two each SVP meeting. I admit I 
did not know that Copenhagen is a hotbed of dinopaleo. 

The review is very positive.
