Summary
When Professor Wilson Bledsoe is brutally murdered, two loathsome white supremacists seem like the obvious culprits. But Bledsoe's younger brother Sterling, an FBI agent in New York, has other ideas. A look around Wilson's lab and interviews with his students, his fellow professors, and the college's president pique Sterling's curiosity about Wilson's nearly-completed project on the mysterious death of hundreds of local blackbirds. But when a tape supposedly incriminating Sterling is sent to the FBI, Sterling becomes a man on the run. Determined to clear his name and bring his brother's murderer to justice, Sterling finds that his brother's project has far-reaching and sinister implications that tie together his brother's college, big-money interests in the Midwest, and some very influential people at the highest levels of government
