There are thousands of moth species in the northeast of North America, and while it might seem that they are all drab grays and browns, there is actually a startling variety. They come in a rainbow of colors, from brilliant oranges and pinks to soft greens and violets. There are moths with colorful leopard-like spots, and ones that look more like B-movie aliens; some that are as large as your hand, and others the size of a grain of rice. With helpful tips on how to attract and identify moths, range maps and season graphs showing when and where to find each species, and clear photographs that use the unique Peterson arrow system for easy identification, this guide provides everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs. Sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.

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.
