The London pigeons are at war. They're not sure what they're fighting about. It could be politics or personality or territory or religion or maybe the 'unilluminable nik' called Murray? Down on the ground, a gang of twentysomethings are facing up to the disappointments of adulthood: while their peers seem 'so good at London', these guys . . .umm . . .aren't. The hatmaker can barely sell a hatpin, the IT whiz-kid's gone bust, and the TV micro-celeb's continually being stopped in the street - mistaken for someone else. But then Murray comes into their midst. And he's different . . .
The London Pigeon Wars is a quirky satirical thriller about ambition and failure, materialism and morality, mirrors as windows - and pigeons with a taste for blood.
