You want me to go to Norway? I asked. And what do you want me to pick up?
An owl, he said.
A real, live owl?
No, he said, the owl’s dead.
Short Ride on A Fast Machine is a quirky and engaging caper, the story of a young cycle courier from London who goes on an improbable journey to Norway, to pick up a stuffed owl for a mysterious client. For his oddest job to date, Sam enlists the help of his friend and fellow courier Poyntz. But as they make their haphazard journey to Mr Sorensen’s mountain hut, its owner is attracting the attention of the Norwegian police. Have Sam and Poyntz become unlikely accomplices in one of the biggest crimes in the country’s history?
