Devoured by a Falcon his grandfather presumes but Mostyn is hell bent on proving him wrong, determined to conquer his sense of loss, especially as his own dad also vanished a few years earlier.Now nineteen and returning home from a trip round Europe for a special occasion, Mostyn recalls the events of that fateful year which defined his life forever.Cue a wild-card missing poster and an amateur search for a bird not many especially like, let alone tell apart.

Yet it is this comic and preposterous premise that drives Mostyn in this bittersweet tale. A mysterious tip-off suggests Mister Lloyd has landed in London and the search shifts to the metropolis where the eleven-year old hero finds himself increasingly isolated and in danger.But one man proves an unexpected ally. Maldwyn, a local handyman whose missing carrier pigeon did come home many moons ago, brings a glimmer of hope.

Trouble is, he’s Mam’s new boyfriend and his presence threatens to fill someone else’s shoes: Dad’s.Still, with Maldwyn, a local myth and a strange online chatroom ‘friend’ as his supporters, Mostyn embarks on the biggest risk of his life. But is it enough to bring Mister Lloyd home?From the domesticated to the feral, Mostyn’s search for Mister Lloyd explores the tough-love lessons of leaving home and letting go, belonging, loss of innocence and the harsh reality of those who want to remain lost.Inventive and eccentric, packed with drama and humour, this is a coming of age novel that will delight readers of all ages.
