"Two of North America's most prolific and respected specialists on moths--particularly those of the West--have combined over a century of experience and scholarship to introduce western moths of all families authoritatively to both the amateur and the experienced professional entomologist. This biologically oriented and beautifully illustrated treatment of a quarter of all known western moth species fills a long-needed void, and does it superbly."--Charles V. Covell Jr., author of A Field Guide to Moths of Eastern North America "This work sets a new high water mark for North American lepidopterology. Considering the authors' century of combined studies of western Lepidoptera, it is clear from the outset that no other team could have delivered a work so rich in taxonomic and life history information, much of it being original and appearing in the literature for the first time. I will read my copy more like a novel than a reference work, casting about the accounts and repeatedly flipping through the 2300 color images to better familiarize myself with our continent's rich and handsome diversity of moths. Moths of Western North America will serve as both gateway and catalyst for the study of moths for decades, and especially for microlepidopterans--for whom no like work exists in the New World."--David L. Wagner, author of Caterpillars of Eastern North America "Recent years have seen a surge of interest in moths, with growing appreciation of their amazing diversity and their great ecological importance. Information on western moths has been scattered and scarce, however, so this new volume is a tremendous step forward. Jerry Powell and Paul Opler bring a vast amount of knowledge and experience to the subject, and their Moths of Western North America is a landmark publication, instantly indispensable to anyone with a serious interest in Lepidoptera."--Kenn Kaufman, coauthor of Kaufman Field Guide to Butterflies of North America

Der Police Sergeant und passionierte Vogelbeobachter William South hat zwei gute Gründe, wieso er nicht in einem Mordfall ermitteln will, der seinen Heimatort erschüttert. Die Zugvögel machen gerade Zwischenhalt an der Küste von Kent. Und er ist selbst ein Mörder. Souths Verbrechen liegt lange zurück und ist nie aufgedeckt worden, er war damals noch ein Kind und lebte in Nordirland. Doch nun scheint ihn die Vergangenheit einzuholen. Als ein Freund von South brutal ermordet aufgefunden wird, ist allzu schnell der Täter ausgemacht: Danny Fraser, ein Landstreicher, der sich anscheinend selbst gerichtet hat. South kennt ihn aus seiner Kindheit und glaubt nicht, dass er der Mörder war. Doch was hat Fraser überhaupt nach Kent verschlagen? An der Seite seiner neuen Vorgesetzten Alexandra Cupidi, einer gerade aus London zugezogenen alleinerziehenden Mutter, sucht South nach den wahren Hintergründen des Mordes. Stets erfüllt von der Angst, dass sein lange gehütetes Geheimnis gelüftet wird.
